Pregnancy Highlights :: Week 33


Due Date: 
August 17, 2011

Size of baby: 
This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. He's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

Gender:
It's confirmed - A GIRL!!

Cravings:  
FOOD - sweets :(
  
Symptoms: 
WELL - I'm officially uncomfortable. Her head is using my pillow as a lung and I swear she's trying to move my ribs around... or trying to get her head up underneath them - just for kicks and giggles because then it feels like she's trying to kick a foot out. Honestly...someday soon I'm going to be walking around and a leg is going to be hanging out of me. OK. tmi.

Thoughts:
It became more real...which is good! BUT, a sense of panic has set in. Not totally - I'm keeping my head on straight most of the time, but now the thought of moving and the fact that we'll have this house that we need to get straightened up is all going to happen POST baby is a little frightening. I mean, it's NOT a big deal, it just would have been nice to be already moving in! Luckily, we have awesome family and friends who have already volunteered to help so I have nothing to complain about. Now I just need to buy a camera (iPhone will NOT NOT NOT do) and king size mattress. Oh geez.

Before and After
Seriously, that shirt last week was bad.
So, technically, today's post should have been 34 weeks but I'm a slacker these days. 
The correct week will come tomorrow .... or Friday. :)
