Bump to Baby: 33 Weeks

You are somewhere between 16 to 17 inches. Although you could definitely be longer than that. You are at least 4-and-a-quarter pounds in weight and still gaining weight like crazy. You are gaining at about a half pound a week now and also adding inches with each week. The amniotic fluid has now maxed out which means there is more baby than fluid now, which is why every move is sharper and a bit more painful. You are acting a lot like a baby, closing and opening your eyes when sleeping and awake. And you can also see a bit more light through the womb which means you can tell the difference between night and day, although we both know you will have all kinds of confusion after you are actually born. This is a huge week though because you now have your own immune system. I'm passing any antibodies on to you and you are using them to build up your immune system. Otherwise you are mostly just working on those lungs and getting those developed before you are born.


It's not surprise that I'm saying once again this has been a tough week. Basically they all feel tough right now. I'm at the point where my body just hurts from regular pregnancy third trimester stuff and also from things that I deal with throughout my pregnancies like my skeletal issue which come to find out might actually be a dislocated rib. No wonder I hurt so much. But anyway, the bathroom breaks are often so I don't often get to sleep through the night. It's hard to get comfortable during the day often when I do I have to get up and just go to the bathroom again, which sometimes literally makes me want to cry. The hormones are serious and wearing on me. The food struggle continues. But you are healthy and bouncing around in there. You get the hiccups a lot which I often feel low, so I think you have positioned yourself with your head down. You are very much on my right side which I know the varicose veins but also because I can feel you pushing on that side a lot. You are definitely my most active when you are awake, however that does mean it's a little painful for me since you are running out of room and your jabs can be pretty sharp. But I would rather feel your jabs than not at this point so just keep on doing what you're doing.

This pregnancy is definitely flying by. It's hard to believe that we are already at the tail end of this. But at the same time I do feel like I have been pregnant forever now. It's a weird mix. But I'm getting more excited and nervous about the actual birth and delivery. But also so ready. It's a weird mix of feelings. When I was pregnant with my first it was all nerves because I had no idea what was going to happen and then what do I do with a baby after. With the second I was just ready and even more ready to go home from the hospital as soon as they would let me. And now I'm a mix of the two. I wonder how life will be with three kids - kindergartner, toddler, and now newborn. But also just ready to get that part of our lives started. We definitely feel ready for her but we are also nervous about her arrival.
