33 Week Bumpdate
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.
Name: Rhylan Violet
Rings On or Off?: Off. This morning marked the day that my rings have to be worn on my necklace.
Signs of Labor: I've been having some inconsistent contractions and braxton hicks for a long time now (months?) and she dropped at 32 weeks.
Nursery: Mermaid themed! I plan on doing a nursery hopefully this week!
Maternity Clothes: I'm in maternity clothes and some non-maternity clothes.
Sleep: Same old, same old. I sleep but never feel like I got sleep. I have been waking up a lot throughout the night too- even more than before, uggggh.
Best Moment(s) of the Week:
-Finishing the nursery.
-Working on packing our hospital bags.
-Shopping for lots of girl clothes for Rory and Rhylan- I seriously need to stop, like for real.
-Taking Rory and my nephew Vinny to the Philadelphia Zoo and seeing my younger sister.
-Meeting my mom's new puppy.
-Jesse and I had a date night of bowling (side note: do not go bowling at 33 weeks pregnant... you will be in lots of pain) while Rory was at my mom's house. This was us celebrating Valentine's Day and our engagement anniversary (the 19th).
Cravings & Aversions: No big time cravings but enjoying double chocolate chip ice cream, cookies n' cream ice cream and Doritos (not together).
Mood: MOODY. I am soooo much more moodier this pregnancy and emotional.
Looking Forward to:
-Making a list of the freezer meals I want to make ahead of time to have for when we come home from the hospital.
-Working on stocking up household stuff so that we have it and don't have as much to get when we go out.
-Maybe cleaning out our cars and getting the bases installed.
-Sharing Rhylan's nursery reveal this week and sharing Rory's nursery/ room reveal this week or next week. I've been putting it off since I decided to order a basket for each girl's room and they should be here this week.
