Bump Update // 33 Weeks


How far along
33 weeks today -- Seven weeks to go! 

Baby's size: 
She's the size of an durian and measuring up to 18.7 inches and 5.8 lbs. She's getting bigger day by day! 

Weight gain:
 I'm weighing in at a solid 147 lbs which means I'm only up 15 pounds -- even after Thanksgiving!

Food cravings: 
Eggs, toast and avocado! Not much different than before. I can't pass up the office treats either. So good, but so bad! 

Sleep: 
Still sleeping great! I'm one lucky girl. At least a solid 8-9 hours a night. However, I had a few rough nights around the full moon. 

Gender:
Team Pink {reveal}

Movement:
TONS! Movin and groovin! 

Best moment this week: 
My Tahoe baby shower and seeing my sweet college friend and her family! Plus, finally ordering our Christmas cards from Minted!

Miss anything? 

Eh, it doesn't really matter. I would say a glass of wine with dinner, but it's been so long at this point.

Symptoms:
The occasional bit of heart burn. Nothing a few rice crackers and pellegrino can't fix.

Workouts: 
Still maintaining and feeling lucky. Mostly spin, walking and HIIT. I might throw in a few crossfit classes too depending on the WOD. At this point I really have to modify movements. 

Maternity Clothes?
Yes and no. Mostly dresses, leggings, definitely maternity pants and a mix a tops. I'm loving these black pants from the Gap right now.

Mood: 
A combo of happy, stressed and frustrated. As silly as it sounds, I cried last week over our maternity/holiday photos -- we don't get a disk/USB of the 30 edited digital images unless we buy them (each one individually...which is pricey). I'm trying to figure it out. With that said, I may or may not share any on the blog. :(

Also frustrated and stressed about where we're having our baby. My cardiologist doesn't recommend I deliver in Tahoe and is suggesting we go Reno, NV. That's a bit over an hour drive! We're having a January baby in snow country! My luck the night I go into labor it will be the biggest storm of the season. Yes, I just went worse case scenario on you. We'll see how the next seven weeks go because I would much rather drive five minutes to the hospital than an hour plus.

Looking forward to: 
Our 35 week ultrasound is in two weeks and we'll find out how big she is and have a better idea of our due date.

  3. You are glowing! If you don't mind me asking, is there a reason your doctor doesn't want you delivering 5 minutes way?

    1. Hi Jessie -- Thanks! Not at all. I was born with a heart defect and as a child had two corrective heart surgeries. Although, I've never had a problem since it still is a concern. The local cardiologist isn't comfortable with me delivering at a smaller hospital and would rather I have a team of specialists near by if something was to happen. My ob and the specialists in Reno do not see any issues. However, as a precaution we're seeing the specialists in Reno tomorrow and are testing the baby for any heart issues before we make any decisions.
