Bumpdate: Baby #2, Week 33

So week 33 is clearly the week of fat face.  Okay, technically I filmed this so late it was week 34, but whatever.  I’ll try to play it off as a bad camera angle, but hey – a girl gets puffy sometimes. 

Week 33 was also the week of manic unpacking and birthday crafting.  Hopefully I’ll soon put together an official Benjamin’s airplane-themed second birthday post to showcase all the fun things I made – Derek thought I was batsh** crazy, but I enjoyed it.  Well worth the effort.  And swollen feet.  Tee hee.

I forgot to mention in the video that between unpacking and birthday crafting, I participated in that sleep study I mentioned a few weeks back.  Basically, the researchers are investigating if there’s a connection between sleep disordered breathing (like snoring, which I have all the time anyway, but it gets way worse when I’m pregnant) and gestational diabetes.  They think that the disordered breathing makes you  more likely to develop GD.  So I got to strap on some super sexy equipment at home one night, submit saliva samples (so gross), and do some bloodwork the morning after the study.  And fill out a million surveys.  I have to go back for follow-up bloodwork in a few weeks.  Believe me, I was cackling like an idiot when I popped out of the bathroom with this getup on, and showed it to Derek.  I am every man’s dream, I tell you.

How Far Along:   
33 weeks.

Size of baby:   
Pineapple

Total Weight Gain:  
21.5 pounds.  With all the chaos of moving, I’ve been pretty bad at blood glucose testing, and apparently, eating.  Never in my life have I had a problem eating!

Stretch Marks:
None yet, but the old ones are looking more prominent and less fade-y.

Maternity Clothes: 
But of course!  I think I’m done shopping though.  During unpacking, I’ve found a few non-maternity sweaters that work perfectly for my current state, and I have been wearing the crap out of them!

Gender: 
I still would be shocked if it’s not a girl, BUT, in my mind, I picture them yelling, “It’s a boy!” at the same time.  So who the heck knows.

Movement:    
Movement has been a bit quiet lately.  Less full-body rolls, and more slight twitches.

Sleep:   
About the same.  Not great, not awful.

What I miss: 
Between birthday crafts and hardly being able to find essentials while unpacking, well, WINE!

Food Cravings:  
Sweets, especially after Benjamin’s amazing birthday cake.

Symptoms:  
Leg cramps times a million, and more heartburn.

Benjamin is:   
TWO!  OMG.

What I’m looking forward to:  
Being fully unpacked and settled in our new home, and decorated for Christmas.

Nothing in the world makes me happier than sweet comments. Well, except for Benjamin giggles. But comments are a close second!
