Thirty Days of Thankfulness (in photos) - Day 28

Day 28 - Technology
 

33 Weeks - Pregnancy #4

Each Monday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week.  I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly.  I've done this with my three previous pregnancies (you can go to the search box and type in "pregnancy," or "week #" if you're interested in how my previous pregnancies progressed), as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.  

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along:  33 weeks

Size of baby:  This little one is a little over 17
inches long (head to toe) and was weighing 4 lbs 5 oz at my appointment last week. 

Total weight gain/loss:  I'm up 24 pounds total as of my appointment today. 

Maternity clothes:  anything that still fits :/

Gender:  boy :) 💙

Movement:  big movements 

Sleep:  Sleep has been awful this week with my kids, my uterus tightening, and my trips to the bathroom. 

What I miss:  putting on socks and shaving with ease

Cravings:  chocolate; salty foods

Symptoms:  sciatic nerve (yoga helps a lot) pain; Braxton Hicks contractions and uterine tightness for long periods of time 

Exercise:  just stretching this week and some arm workouts with my stretchy band

Best moment this week:  Getting to see a sweet image of the baby's face at my specialist appointment on Tuesday. 

33 Weeks - taken this morning by The Husband before my appointment (shirt and shoes courtesy of my wonderful cousin, Sarah! She's a clothing designer and designed the shirt, and it's adorable!)
 
I totally took this picture in the bathroom at the dr's office 😂 but the back is too cute!

32 Weeks - Pregnancy #4

Each Monday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week.  I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly.  I've done this with my three previous pregnancies (you can go to the search box and type in "pregnancy," or "week #" if you're interested in how my previous pregnancies progressed), as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.  

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along:  32 weeks

Size of baby:  This little one is a little over 16 1/2
inches long (head to toe) and about the weight of a jicama. 

Total weight gain/loss:  I'm up 23 pounds total as of my appointment today. 😳

Maternity clothes:  hahaha, I've officially graduated to wearing The Husband's t-shirts and jackets as none of mine fit. I have a few maternity tops and about 4 pairs of different kinds of maternity pants I rotate between on cold days. 

Gender:  boy :) 💙

Movement:  hiccups and big kicks :)

Sleep:  Sleep has been fine

What I miss:  putting on socks and shaving with ease

Cravings:  chocolate; salty foods

Symptoms:  sciatic nerve (yoga helps a lot) pain; Braxton Hicks contractions and uterine tightness for long periods of time 

Exercise:  just stretching this week and some arm workouts with my stretchy band

Best moment this week:  hmm, well this week has been kind of a blur. I guess it's been really nice to know so much work is being done upstairs. Easing my mind some :) Thanks,Uncle Nathan, for helping us out!

And, for grins and giggles, I wanted to compare this week in my pregnancies. It's strange for me to be this pregnant in winter time. I feel pretty constricted in all these clothes!

Those sparkly gems were from my grandmother's wedding set, and I will always think of her and the love she shared with my grandfather when I look at this ring given to me by The Husband.
