(33 weeks, 6 days)
How far along: 34 weeks today.
Baby's size: She weighs around 4.75 pounds and is about 18 inches long (according to Babycenter). Her size is always just the average provided by Babycenter because I have no idea how much she actually weighs or how long she is - we don't do any ultrasound measurements at my midwife appointments.
Boy or girl: It's a girl!
How am I feeling: I managed to aggravate my left round ligament last week and I have been in quite a bit of pain since then. I have been limping around and moving very slowly. Sometimes it seems like every little movement is excruciating. The only thing I can do to get the inflammation to go down is rest... which is easier said than done. I have been going to see the chiropractor once a week and it has helped my back and sciatic nerve pain immensely. Other than that I am doing really well. I am pretty tired but still plugging along.
Maternity clothes: I think I am entirely maternity these days except for my tank tops.
Sleep: Still manageable. Being tired all the time helps for sure and I am usually pretty comfortable if I have enough pillows. I am sleeping on my sides only which is actually easier than I thought it would be.
Baby movement: She is still a mover and a shaker. I feel a little heel stick out on my far left side all the time. I am relishing in each and every shift, poke and kick because I know that I will miss them after she is born... even if they do hurt.
Food cravings: Still nothing in particular though I have noticed an increase in my appetite.
Food aversions: Nothing that I can think of. There are certain things that don't sound appealing (like salad) but I wouldn't consider those real aversions.
What I miss: I still miss knowing what I feel like eating.
Best moment(s): My final baby shower with all my girlfriends here in NYC. Marissa and Jenna did such a great job and really made me feel special. I am so touched by everyone's genuine excitement and generosity for our Little Lady.
What I am looking forward to: The end of work. I only have 7 days of work left and I am so ready to not sit in this desk chair anymore, it is just too hard on my poor body. I am also really looking forward to having more time during the day to check baby stuff off my to do list... there is so much futzing to be done!
