How far along: 33 weeks today!
How big is baby Jaden: He's approximately 4.5 lbs now and between 19-20 inches in length. Believe me this little ones boogy sessions are definitely becoming more uncomfortable due to the lack of space in my tummy...never the less they are still precious and priceless! I wouldn't trade them for the world. He is head down and his heartbeat is very strong. If he were born now, his lungs should be able to function on their own, however he would still need the incubator to keep warm.
Weight gain: 31 lbs...no comment there. At least it's slowing down. Hopefully once our munchkin gets here I'll be able to lose it...boy I hope he likes breastfeeding for several reasons...including the fact that it speeds weight loss in mommy! ;)
Maternity clothes: Oh yeah...
Sleep: Even with the lovely Snoogle pillow that my parents got me I still have a lot of problems with sleep. The snoogle is fantastic...even my hubby tries to steal it when he can ;) but unfortunately insomnia, heartburn and rash are also keeping me from sleeping well.
Best moment of the week: hearing Baby "J"'s heart beating again! Seeing a doctor that solved at least the rash issue on my hands. Apparently it's not just any old pregnancy rash on my hands but eczema that's flaring up really badly due to the hormones from pregnancy. This explains why my rash got so bad that my hands were swollen, red and cracked and painful(sounds glamorous, eh? Oh believe me it was!)Also when he checked me my cervix was still closed (which is exactly what I wanted to hear...with a family history of preemies...that's quite reassuring to hear.
Movement: lots and lots! Although the last two days he's kind of chilled out a little bit more...possibly because mommy's been a little stressed. Not sure.
Foods I love/hate: Probably still Paninis, Spagetti (which I so should not eat with heartburn issues!! I get to eat very LITTLE sauce...), I've been having some serious cravings for a good desert but haven't really given in to it....man I would love a good Tiramisu right now!!! Ahhhh!
Morning sickness: only first thing in the a.m. before I eat.
