Pregnancy: 33 weeks, 4 days
Weight Gain: -2lbs! I'm not kidding, I wouldn't make this up. I can't believe it either, because with eating every 3 hours, I definitely feel like I should be gaining. At this point, even if I started gaining, I would still lose weight overall by just having her, which is excellent news in my book.
Sleep: Overall, I shouldn't complain. I've been doing my best to eliminate any and all things that keep me from crashing at night. I have started taking my baths in the a.m. so they don't wake me up at all and I'm doing my best not to nap at all. I've also started getting up earlier again, completely at Lydia's demand, which also helps.
Gender: Dr. Brody scared me today when he said "he" but it was just a slip and she's still all girl!
Name: same (Lydia)
Feeling: nesting (if that's a feeling...), optimistic, excited
Health: I honestly feel great. And if I'm not mistaken, I'm feeling better further into this pregnancy than I did last time. I am finding myself winded more and more, but I'm pretty confident that Lydia's just getting huge and my lungs don't have enough room. :) (At least that's the excuse I'm going with...) Also, thankfully, I haven't been swelling too much yet either. But my belly is getting pretty huge!
Movement: She's still a wild child and she has the hiccups often. I love watching my belly dance!
Belly Button: Barely an inny still!
Cravings: spicy stuff, meaty stuff - I'm glad I stopped wanting cupcakes!
Next Appointment: Thursday, September 22nd
