So I'm laying in bed, my feet are swollen, propped up on pillows and I officially feel like a whale. Week 33 is here and happening...and I'm still hungry...all the time.
My doctor's appointment went great today. Blood pressure, weight gain and protein levels are all healthy (I've been doing my best to follow a healthy meal plan and have been Fixed on Fitness to stay in shape). Baby's heartbeat is again in the 150's and he's flipped around which means he's not breach! Just one more 2-week checkup and I'll be visiting every week. But holy moly, since our little "pineapple-sized" man flipped a few days ago my back has been aching and I'm in a lot more pain. If you've never been pregnant the closest comparison I can make is feeling really really full, times 20. But then you still want to eat like 10 more cookies.
What's really amazing is that his little arms are punching, his tiny feet are kicking, his body's squirming and he's moving around more than ever before. Such an incredible feeling it makes all the discomfort worth it.
Sunday was another great day at Neda's Notions to take more pictures in my 8th month. I had a chance to meet the other Mommy Reps for the first time. Such a great group to be a part of! We're all having boys too...what's in the water?
That's all for now...off to eat again!
