Highlights and Lowlights of my Pregnancy Week 32-33:
Just another week that went flying by in the blink of an eye.
We were suppose to move into our town house last Friday but I had stayed at the apartment to pack.
Turns out we both needed to sign the lease that Friday but Matt had no way to get ahold of me.
There for, moving day got held back to this Friday.
FINGERS CROSSED NOTHING GOES WRONG!
Brayden had been sleeping like a little angel at night but now he is teething again.
We are back to waking up every few hours and him scream crying.
Can't wait for him to just be 100% okay for once.
No abscess, no virus, no teething, no diaper rash and no cold!
Just my little joyful baby boy and his giggles.
Elena has been a little wiggle worm these past few days.
I am starting to see my whole stomach shift as she changes positions.
Last week I suffered from horrible heartburn. Thankfully I have been finding ways around it.
I have to say the only things I really suffered from this week is my sudden allergies to my make up.
The second I put foundation on I break out in hives.
Also my eyeliner makes my eyes water and sting.
Needless to say I haven't been wearing much makeup.
My roots are also getting bad but my hair is so DRY I refuse to dye it.
I would cry if it fell out and bleach isn't very gentle.
Other than that some fun stuff that happened this week:
I got some Maternity Photos done!
We got our $1000 security deposit back from the second house we were looking at!
Brayden got his tie removed from his abscess!
Brain fart I can't think of anything more.
My life is so chaotic that I had to look at my blog to see what week of pregnancy I was on this morning! Someone please say a little prayer that I get rest after this move!
On that note,
33 Week Bump Board
This week I wanted to add something little special.
A little lesson on the importance on life and the value of a dollar.
I may look like I have a lot of money because of the way I dress and carry myself.
Not the case. Matthew and I have a comfortable amount of money but we also have many big things to save for.
We want a new couch, a mattress, we have a wedding in October and most of all we have two kids to care for.
There are so many shops out there that aren't HIGH END and still have good items.
Take my outfit for example in this photo.
My earrings and tank top are from K-Mart
My gray sweater is from Old Navy
My Hollister Jeans are from a thrift shop called Plato's Closet
At the most my outfit cost me $30 and I still look cute.
You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to look nice.
I would rather buy my son anything he needs than buy myself clothes.
Uncomfortable *mostly at night and in the car
Braxton hicks more towards the evening.
Sore breasts and nipples!
Sore back at night
TIRED ALL THE TIME
This week's big developments: Your baby is still gaining weight (about half a pound a week), and she could grow up to another full inch this week. With that much baby inside your uterus, your amniotic-fluid level has maxed out, which explains why some of her pokes and kicks feel pretty sharp these days. (There's less fluid to cushion the blows.) Antibodies are being passed from you to your little one as she continues to develop her own fetal immune system, which will come in handy once she's outside the womb and fending off all sorts of germs.
Your body week 32 of pregnancy: With midnight bathroom runs, leg cramps, heartburn, and your basketball-sized belly, it's no wonder sleep is elusive. Third-trimester insomnia strikes about three-quarters of pregnant women (who may also be coping with a mind that races all night long thinking about your to-do-before-the-baby-comes list). But your body needs rest, so do your best to get comfy — before bed and when you get in it. Grab a pile of pillows, wedge them where you need to, and look on the bright side: Pregnancy insomnia is great training for those sleepless nights to come!
I would like to note I don't fade my stretch marks because I am ashamed.
I fade them in these collages because I feel like they distract from the point.
I make these collages to show my bump and the changes it has made in a week.
This week I think it actually looks smaller.
Like she dropped slightly.
Weight Gain/Loss: +14.6pounds Sleep: back to feeling and looking like a walking mombie.
Best Moment This Week: My best moment this week will be moving into our townhouse this weekend!
Movement: She is making mommies tummy move and shift every direction! Makes me excited knowing she is growing big and strong for delivery day!
Food Cravings/Aversions: Yogurt, smoothies and anything sweet. Still fighting my bad cravings.
What I Miss: This week I just simply miss being able to lay down and not have to do a DAMN THING.
Stretch Marks: Still old ones just starting to be more noticeable!
Mood: My mood this week is a mixture of happy, stressed and just exhausted.
Labor Signs: Nothing serious! I think she's starting to drop some but 7 more weeks to go!
Upcoming Appointments/Events: Next friday is another appointment with my Midwife!
What I look forward to: Moving into our town house, My baby sprinkle, Brayden's first birthday, the birth of my baby girl and marrying the love of my life.
Weekly Wisdom: Pulling someone down will never help you reach the top.
