How far along: 33 weeks – this update is through 32w6d
Meds: Prenatals, DHA, Synthroid, Labatalol, Baby Aspirin, Levemir and Novolog
Baby is the size of: Pomelo
Belly pictures: No picture this week because I’m LAZY!!! 😦
Total weight gain: 18.4 lbs since transfer bringing me up to 163.4 lbs.
I actually also started doing the treadmill Mon-Fri. Primarily for my Gestational Diabetes and my Chronic Hypertension. My BP was a bit elevated at my last appointment, so i’m trying to do whatever I can to give me my best chances to keep this little guy in my belly!!
Maternity Clothes: Yes, I’m typically a jeans and tee slob during this pregnancy but I’m trying to make an effort every other day or so. I did, however, buy my baby shower dress!!! Here it is:
Stretch marks: Nothing new, but I’m getting a bit paranoid – so I’m slathering on extra balm.
Sleep: Well, I don’t know if I can blame pregnancy, the baby, or my dogs. I’ve been awake every night at about 3am for the past few nights. Then I get sleepy about 30 minutes before I have to really get up and go to work. Well — I’ve been getting to work late too…that’s cause I’m LAZY.
Gestational Diabetes: My glucose levels finally feel like they are under control!! It only takes 24u of Levemir at night, and 6u of Novolog before breakfast. Otherwise, we are well!!!
Symptoms/Feeling: I feel like my pelvic bone is about to fall out from underneath me. And there is a pelvic burning sensation when I get up from sitting. But then I remind myself how long its taken to get here…and I welcome the pain!
Best moment of this week: Going to our 32 week growth scan. Baby is doing well. Legs seem a littler short, but I think that’s the filipino in him. He wouldn’t let us take any pictures, but he has a scrotum now!!
Miss anything: I still miss sweets. But I only have a few more weeks to go, and I know they will be worth it.
Movement: OMG, the movements are stronger and at times – more painful. But they remind me that he is healthy, so it’s all good.
Food cravings: My huge splurge is Plain Greek Yogurt and Trail Mix (yes, with chocolate and dried fruit – don’t tell my nutritionist)
Anything making you queasy or sick: When I forget a snack or meal and my blood sugar dives.
Boy or Girl: Boy!!
Labor signs: Goodness NO!
Belly button in or out: FLAT!!
Wedding rings on or off: Wedding band is off….BUT I got my engagement ring resized!!! SO I’m rocking my engagement ring and it makes me so happy!!
Happy or moody most of the time: Anxiety is slowly creeping in….. Or is it excitement?
Purchases/preparations for baby:
The nursery is almost done!! It should be done this weekend if things work out. I also plan to get our hospital bag all ready and organize the few items in his closet!! Here’s the room again (which is also in a previous post):
Looking forward to: Maternity L-E-A-V-E!!!!
