Baby is the size of: Celery or Durian (see below) -- 17.2 inches; 4.19 pounds

 

  • Baby᾿s keeping eyes open while awake.
  • Baby᾿s also starting to coordinate breathing with sucking and swallowing.
  • The bones are hardening.
  • With that much baby inside your uterus, your amniotic-fluid level has maxed out at 33 weeks pregnant, making it likely you have more baby than fluid now. That’s one reason explaining why some of her pokes and kicks feel pretty sharp these days.

Due Date: 4/2/2017

Symptoms: congestion OMG! so sick of it!!!! it's the worst at night and in the morning. I feel some sense of relief during the afternoon but always know it's coming :( Also fingers are swelling at night still which is very unpleasant and toes are too! A little bit of pelvic pain here and there but no labor-related pains yet which is good. They're in there cookin a little bit longer!

Best moment this week: I don't know if it was the best moment but we got to see the little guys on the ultrasound and although their tummies are measuring small, their heads and femur lengths look good as well as the amount of amniotic fluid... sooo they still have room and time to grow. Here's to praying for big growth spurt this next week +! I want them to be measuring on time yet again! Fingers crossed

Sleep: Awful -- body is definitely getting sick of being pregnant and it's sooo hard to get comfy despite my awesome snoogle pregnancy pillow and tons of other pillows that Russ' doesn't like taking over the bed. haha Russ also mentioned I am snoring which is not fun/ attractive but it is definitely due to the nasal congestion and shortness of breath I am feeling :( Boo!

Looking forward to: finishing up the nursery this week and counting down!
