33 Week Bumpdate

Image
How Far Along: 33 weeks and 2 days (doing these things weekly now).

Due Date: 4/14/18 but my c-section is scheduled for 4/11/18!

Baby is the Size of: a honeydew melon! Baby #2 should weigh 4.5 lbs and measure 19" long. My gut feeling has been that her birth weight will either be 7 lbs 14 oz or 8 lbs 2 oz. At my ultrasound at 27 1/2 weeks, Rhylan was weighing 2 lbs 11 oz which puts her in the 67th percentile (so she is on the big side). I have another ultrasound in 2 days and hopefully we get an estimated birth weight!

Weight Gain: 33 lbs.

Symptoms: Nausea, vomiting ("controlled" by Diclegis and Promethazine), MOODY, emotional, fatigue, Depression, super EXHAUSTED, lower back/ tailbone pain, acid reflux (controlled by Pepcid), cramping, pelvic pain/ pubic bone pain, pregnancy brain, braxton hicks, pressure down low, and some inconsistent but real contractions.

Gender: Girl!

Name: Rhylan Violet

Movement: Yes!

Rings On or Off?: Off. This morning marked the day that my rings have t…

Symptoms: Nausea, vomiting ("controlled" by Diclegis and Promethazine), MOODY, emotional, fatigue, Depression, super EXHAUSTED, lower back/ tailbone pain, acid reflux, cramping, pelvic pain/ pubic bone pain, pregnancy brain (I feel like I have no brain right now), some braxton hicks, pressure down low, and some in…
