You are one hot mama -- literally. A 20 percent metabolic rate increase throughout pregnancy can leave you begging for a cool breeze no matter what the weather is like. Distract yourself with an exercise in blind identification. Try to distinguish between baby's feet, fists, knees, and elbows -- all doing some major pushing and nudging inside of you.
Weeks 33-36 (Month 8): Honeydew
Baby’s senses are continuing to improve -- when light peeks in through your (extremely) stretched belly, those tiny eyelids and irises blink and dilate. And, baby can now recognize and react to simple songs… time to start practicing your lullabies! Growth (at least inside your womb) is starting to slow, and you may notice baby descend into your pelvis at the end of this month.
I am going to the doctor every 2 weeks now and had an appointment this morning. I am measuring consistently 2 weeks ahead so I am measuring 35 right now. My OB said as long I stay consistent, he won't worry about it. And my cervix is still closed so it looks like I will ~hopefully~ be making it through this pregnancy without having a cerclage stitch as I only have 4 weeks left until they would have it removed anyhow.
Jayden, the kitties and I stayed home Saturday night celebrating my 29th birthday with some soda and O'Douls while Nathan headed to my twin brother's for his keg party. Holidays and birthdays are almost too exciting during pregnancy. lol But I am glad I had my baby boy to spend it with even though he was bummed I didn't have a 'birthday party' anywhere. He hasn't grasped the concept that I won't have an actual party like he does.
I didn't take a new picture this weekend so I'll share the one I took on Friday afternoon at work.
