This Texas Baby: Week 33 Check-In

BABY'S TASK FOR THE WEEK: Keep packing on that weight and length! Baby girl did you know that you could grown up to an inch more this week? ONE INCH! IN ONE WEEK! That's a lot. You are also, probably, weighing in at close to an impressive 5 pounds. Every day I get more and more excited to see and meet you but every day I say a little prayer for you to stay inside me until it's time for you to come out. As much as I would love to meet you, say today, it sure would be good of you to keep on baking until your due date!

SYMPTOMS: Hello swelling! Haha, it really is not that bad or at least not as bad as I was expecting it to be and it is only really bad when I am just standing on my feet. Although, I have noticed that my feet are a smidgen wider than normal, lots of my shoes are too tight across the width of my foot. But standing is the worse, they start to hurt and I start to look like I have cankles! My hands are not that bad, my rings still fit, although a smidgen tighter than normal, but no problems getting them off or anything like that.

CURRENT MOOD: Faaaareaking out. I think I have just hit that super paranoid pregnancy phase. I think a lot of women go through it sooner in their pregnancy when the baby is super vulnerable. But for some reason I am going through it now! I think a lot of it has to do with "I've made it this far how terrible would it be for something bad to happen now!" But I am trying to not really freak myself out or express any of this to your daddy, no need to freak him out too! I am headed to the doctor today where I will get to hear your strong little heart beat and hopefully that will calm me down for the next two weeks until I get to hear it again!

THIS WEEK'S GETTING READY FOR BABY FINISHED HOMEWORK: I finished all of the thank you notes for gifts we have received, woo! I am so, so, so glad that is done. I have a feeling we will be receiving some more gifts for you baby girl this week with all of the Christmas happenings. So, I am so glad to have all of these done and wont have to carry any over to after Christmas. I also filled out our pre-admission forms for the hospital, I am going to drop them off on the way to my doctors appointment today.

NEXT WEEK'S GETTING READY FOR BABY HOMEWORK: Your momma and daddy need to practice this whole actually HAVING a baby process. Mostly what I mean by that is that we need to practice breathing with each other and make sure your daddy has a good list of things to try to help calm me down and relax me. I really want to have you without any drugs so we are both going to need to really be prepared to do whatever we can do to make things easier for me to bring you into this big world.
