Week 33

How far along: 33 weeks

Genders: Boy & Girl!!

Weight gain: + 2 pounds (30 lbs so far)

New symptoms: Not much new. Still got the reflux and occasional Braxton Hicks contractions.

Restless legs, especially at night time, are out of control and I’ve been taking frequent baths with epsom salt to help them relax so I can sleep. I ordered a body lotion with magnesium chloride that’s specifically made for pregnancy related restless legs and sore muscles from 8 Sheep Organics. I had it customized with lavender essential oils because that is my favorite scent to relax to but it also could come unscented or with bergamot or ylang ylang essential oil scents. I can’t wait to try it out!

Queasy or sick: None this week.

Cravings: Still loving all the sweet stuff, especially cookies and ice cream.

Aversions: Nothing new

Sleep: Restless and way more challenging to get comfortable.

Maternity clothes: Comfy, loose items. Whatever fits.

Stretch marks: nothing new since last week – have the cluster around my belly button which I’m applying my belly oil more liberally now.

Belly button in or out: still in but shallow

Miss anything: being less achy in my belly and pelvis and doing normal things that we would be doing if COVID-19 wasn’t running around

Movement: The kicks and rolls are getting bigger and stronger. It’s reassuring to know that they’re growing and getting big enough to have these strong kicks.

We had our nonstress test at the OB office this week, which they passed with flying colors. Heart rates are running in the 130-140s.

We also had our next measurement ultrasound. Baby Boy is so low in my pelvis they were only able to get limited measurements of his head, but from what they could get they determined he’s measuring a few days behind and weighing in at 4 pounds 15 ounces. Baby Girl is measuring on track and weighing in at 5 pounds 8 ounces. I imagine if we can keep going another 2 weeks they’ll be between 6-7 pounds each. Also we were able to get great face and profile shots of Baby Girl this time. You can see her cute little nose and lips really well. 🙂
