We were so busy this week, sorry the board is boring 🙂

How far along?  33 Weeks
Size of Baby:  Durian Fruit.. who the heck knows what that is?! haha
Total weight gain/loss: 14 lbs. according to dr. appt.
Best moment this week:  We had the tour of the hospital this week.  It was surreal and exciting, definitely made it feel real and soon!
Miss Anything? Energy!  It has been a crazy week looking at houses and trying to get everything else done that I have no energy this week!
Movement: Lots and lots!  I don’t have to do kick counts since baby would hit the count in about 1 min 🙂
Food cravings: Not really anything this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Not this week!
Gender prediction:  Pretty sure it is a boy still
Labor Signs: none that I’m feeling
Symptoms: achy lower back, achy shoulders, can’t get comfy, exhausted, and linea negra, swelling ankles
~We had a little bit of a scare on Sunday when I look down and my ankles (especially the left one) were bigger than when I broke my ankle!  I wasn’t swollen anywhere else, I could still get my rings on and off; it was just my ankles.  With such severe swelling so sudden, I called the Dr. Monday morning and he wanted me to come in first thing Tuesday.  Until then, I had to stay off my feet, drink lots of water and rest!  By the time we got to the Dr. on Tuesday it had already gone down quite a bit but the worry was if it was a sign of pre eclampsia.  However at the Dr. visit, it was ruled out by me not having any other symptoms and that resting had allowed the swelling to go back down.  Apparently I combined doing too much over the weekend with looking for houses and eating a little too much salt that caused it to swell so rapidly.  Such good news that me and baby are still very healthy and just a sign that I don’t need to push myself so hard!
Belly Button in or out? Flatish 🙂
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to:  Our shower in TN!  We get to celebrate this little one with so many friends we haven’t seen in a while, it is going to be so much fun!
