Pregnancy #2 Update 33 Weeks

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

How far along? 33 weeks (as of Saturday) 
Total weight gain: Around 9 pounds
Maternity clothes? Nope. I just wear my jeans with stretchy tops, leggings, joggers, and dresses. :) 
Stretch marks? Still none that I can see. I never got any with Rosalie, but I am sure time will tell ha.
Best moment this week: When Rosalie asked me if she could kiss and hug baby brother. She will lean down and kiss my stomach and then give it a hug. I just know she is going to be such a good big sister.  
Miss anything? I miss being able to bend down without getting a Braxton Hicks contraction, I miss not getting contractions whenever I have to pee, and I miss not having to stop my run half of the time to go pee haha. 
Movement:  Yes! He loves to move and I feel him on both sides of my stomach most of the time. He parties the hardest at night, which has me thinking I am going to be spending a lot of time awake at night when he gets here. ;) 
Food cravings: The only thing that I have "craved" per say this last week was General's Chicken and it was delicious. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still certain foods and showers or baths. I know the shower or bath thing is weird, but it happened with Rosalie too. 
Gender: A sweet baby boy :) 
Labor signs: No
Symptoms: Lots and lots and LOTS of Braxton Hicks contractions. My doctor said I would probably have more with the second than with the first and he was right. And I thought I had a ton with Rosalie haha. 
Belly button in or out? It is basically flat right now and popping out a little. I am actually really excited about this because my belly button never popped out with Rosalie. 
Wedding rings on or off? On. No swelling yet
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy. I am feeling very blessed and excited to meet this sweet baby boy so soon. :) 
Looking forward to: My doctor's appointment this week. :) It is going to be every two weeks after this appointment. I get so excited because it means I am getting SO close!
Exercise: I had a couple hard running days with my leg being tight, but it is great now. I just mix it up between running and the elliptical for my cardio. I'm also doing the best that I can at being consistent with my strength training. I really want to step it up a notch after I have this little guy though.
