33 Weeks (Baby #2)
How far along - 33 weeks, due November 30th.
Gender - A little gentleman.
Cravings - Nothing.
Aversions - Nothing precisely, but nothing sounds appealing either.
Best moment - Getting our power back on after Hurricane Matthew took it out. It was a sweaty three days, and it felt amazing to sleep with cool air again.
Looking forward to - Canadian Thanksgiving next weekend...again. We had to postpone it when there was no power to do essential things like bake pies and provide guests with air conditioning.
Miss anything - Clean laundry? I've been chipping away at it since the power was restored but I still have two loads to go. Pregnancy wise...eating food without feeling too full after three bites.
Movement - It's definitely my favorite part. And, getting some strong wallops too. With my laptop on my lap my arms need to rest on part of the bump and baby boy usually ends up karate chopping them to death.
Other pregnancy symptoms - Uncomfortable, definitely. Waddling, yup. Whale status, getting there...especially when I'm trying to get up from the floor, it's more like beached whale. My stomach has been feeling so very stretched lately. Starting to get sore hips if I don't keep switching sides at night. With Aria my hips killed me much earlier, constantly sore. I was expecting that again this time but so far nope, just a wee bit of it.
Aria's thoughts - I think it is funny when she blames everything on baby brother. If I'm hungry or tired or thirsty or can't sit in the same spot any longer or anything...she says it is because I'm having a baby. Most of the time it works though! Is baby brother hungry? Did baby brother drink all your water?
Hurricane Matthew seems to have pushed baby to the background. I had to triple check that I'm 33 weeks now, and not 32. 7 weeks to go (give or take) seems like such a short amount of time while at the same time the end of November seems like ages away. And, November is next month! Probably should buy a few things...like his bed, maybe a few diapers. I had Aria at 34 weeks. You'd think that would make me feel the need to be prepared super early, but no.
