Lately I just DO NOT know what to do with myself and feel like I am in a TUG O WAR! I am exhausted but can’t sleep, hungry but nauseous, bored but don’t feel like doing anything, lonely but I don’t feel like talking to anyone, anxious and scared and cranky but beyond excited and happy…
How far along? 33 weeks on Sunday April 22, 2012
Weight gain/loss: +22.6
Size of baby: over 4 pounds…possibly the size of a honeydew melon
Maternity clothes? finally broke into Matias’s bibs :/
Stretch marks: none
Belly Button in or out? surfaced most of the time but out when baby P is underneath it
Sleep: tough…I am starting to be pretty uncomfortable with this…you can not lie on your back while pregnant…laying on my side I get lots of pokes and jabs…propped up on my back little guy is too scrunched and I get pangs in my ribs and pelvis
Food cravings: the USUAL and shrimp…I don’t know why but it is so tasty these days. orange pop…whenever I do not feel well I crave orange pop…YES, I said pop…I am from OHIO and proud of it!
Food aversions: nausea has hit…not a lot is appetizing lately
Pregnancy Signs: I feel like I have had really bad PMS for the past 7 months. I feel physically exhausted. I am feeling the most nauseated in the past few weeks than I have throughout the whole pregnancy. I feel guilty for having these feelings about being pregnant when I have a miracle inside of me and I want EVERYTHING possible for him to be healthy and safe.
Movement: LOTS. and more rolls, pushes, and larger movements opposed to the smaller kicks and taps. I feel painful twinges in my ribs and lower pelvis…must be getting tight in there.
What I miss: tri season is really getting going…I miss the adrenaline high from a solid tough ride or from a crushed race. I miss feeling physically exhausted the day after a hard workout (opposed to just feeling physically exhausted). I miss riding my bike or rollerblading everywhere. woe is me….NO really I would not change a thing…
What I am looking forward to: I am SO excited and at the same time SO anxious and scared for the future. I have been having more and more vivid dreams about baby P…where I forget about him, something happens to him, etc…I guess this is preparing me for the constant worry of a parent for their child. I can not even imagine…I love him SO much already.
Best moment this week: We went out to Bluemont Vineyard last weekend…first time since the BIG DAY…Matias raced the 5K and defended his title of winner and first to the top of the 951′ mountain…2x champ! Even though I could not race OR drink wine I had a lovely time hanging out with Mums and Pops
Milestones: we had another obgyn appointment this week…all is looking well. measuring at 33cm…right on for 33 weeks.
Weekly Wisdom: an object in motion stays in motion…meaning if I keep moving hopefully I won’t stop…swimming, trainering, yogaing, walking, just keeping active. I have some weeks were I feel like I am slowing down (this week for sure) and then I pick back up…hoping I pick back up…
Going the Distance: baby P has swam: 364.42 miles and biked: 1267.48 miles and done: 44 hot yogs classes
