Pregnancy Update: 33 Weeks!


How far along?  33 weeks!  It means that even if I’m super overdue, I’m officially on the single digits countdown when it comes to how many weeks are left (4 weeks to full term, 9 weeks until they induce me).

Total weight gain/loss:  19lbs.  I put on another pound, despite my best efforts.  Damn hormones!

Exercise:  I went to the gym (and blogged about it!), and am still sore days later (seriously??).  Of course, aqua aerobics girl time too, which is always fun.  I even swam a lap in the pool where we have the class (after almost 2 years away from swimming since my pool is tiny), and that only proved that I really am out of shape (and how I miss swimming…), but the bump didn’t prevent me from doing a flip turn, so yay for small victories!

Measurements:  Belly at 41.5” waist at 36” – so slightly less than last week, meaning all the weight gain went straight to my hips?  (Boobs?  Thighs?  It must have gone somewhere…  Too scared to measure those now though!)

Maternity clothes?  Yep, but still rocking the regular dresses!  (Without making them obscenely short either, woot!)

Stretch marks?  My skin is holding on.

Sleep:  I actually was able to SLEEP a few nights this week.  (Sleeping is so amazingly wonderful, isn’t it?)  Sure, I still have to get up to pee every 10 minutes, but getting some good deep sleep (and falling asleep quick) in between has made a world of difference.  Let’s hope this is not a temporary thing, because I’m aching to go back to the gym (as soon as my body stops literally aching).

Best moment this week:  See bullet above: sleep!

Miss Anything?  Now that I got some sleep, I’m back to wanting a nice cold salted-rim margarita.  Hmmmm…

Movement:  Lots of rolling, but every time I pull off the camera so I can send my sister-in-law in Brazil a creepy video of the belly moving, baby girl gets shy and stops.

Food cravings:  The food at Sonya’s Garden, but looks like we may be making a special trip there on Monday.  Being able to eat more of that AMAZING mushroom dip?  YUM!

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Heartburn and the occasional car sickness.

Have you started to show yet:  More and more random people asking if I’m pregnant, or just assuming I am (“do you prefer to take the elevator?”).  Our maid today mentioned how I don’t look pregnant from the back, and I’ll take that as a compliment, even though I know that as a true Asian what she really means is that I look fat, not pregnant, from the back (not taboo to calling people fat in Asia, but I’ll never ever ever get used to that).

Gender:  Girl!

Labor Signs:  Nothing yet – 4 more weeks until it will be considered ok!

Belly Button in or out?  It looks like it’s going to hang in there for good.

Wedding rings on or off?  Off.  Totally forgot that my goal at Greenhills today was to buy a fake stand-by ring.  Ooops!

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Varies a lot.

Looking forward to:  A few hours at the spa with Karl this weekend celebrating his birthday!  (He turned 33 the day I turned 33 weeks. Cute, no?)
