Progression: 33 weeks 4 days

So since the day I got pregnant, I have lost a total of 10 pounds.  I have started gaining some of the weight back during the 3rd trimester because I was down almost 20 pounds in May.  Most people say they can see it mostly in my face.   I have not been trying to lose weight, but I honestly have not bee able to eat processed foods during my pregnancy and I have been a lot more active since we moved.  Baby has been consistently measuring in the 50th percentile the entire way 🙂  We still have no clue if it is a boy or girl and it is so exciting!  I do not have gestational diabetes and I passed the 3 hour glucose test.  But they still consider me high risk.  I don’t complain because it means I get to go to the dr office 2x a week for monitoring where they hook me up to the contraction and heartbeat monitors for 20 minutes or more and I just listen to my little one kick and squirm and it’s heartbeat.  Then I get to see them for a moment on the u/s when they measure the amniotic fluid.  

They will be inducing me on August 25th.  I am not going drug free for sure!  But we do kinda have a birth plan because I want immediate skin to skin and breast feeding along with delayed cord clamping.  But other than that, I am open to go with the flow.  

Pregnancy brain is a real thing!  I used to be so sharp and quick at work and in my home life, now I am like a teenager who smoked away too much hasheesh during homeroom.  Luckily, I am passing down all of my work to my maternity replacement in the next two weeks and I will be helping with training until the week before.  I am also getting much clumsier and walking for more than 10 minutes is out of the question.  Yes, I waddle.  Not because of how big I am, but because there is a baby sleeping on my cervix!  It makes you move much differently 🙂

The nursery is almost complete, kinda hard to decorate when you don’t know the gender, but we are just going to keep going with a modern cute theme.  I will post pics. 🙂
