48 Days Left!

How far along? 33 weeks 1 day.

Total weight gain/loss: 25#'s total.

Stretch marks? Not at all :) Woot! Corey Checked every inch of belly and back for me yesterday!

Best moment this week: Mothers Day.... Spending it with my mom and dad, and Corey.... He surprised me with a gift certicicate to Spargo for a pre-natal massage!

Movement: Tons of kicks and jabs.

Food cravings: Fruit, any fruit. Soup.

Labor Signs: Nope, just Braxton Hicks Contractions. Sometimes when we are out walking the dogs, I feel pressure down there.

Belly Button in or out? out when I stretch or sit down.

What I miss: Wine, Sexy Underwear, being able to shave my legs effectivly.

What I am looking forward to: - Visting SIU and KY this weekend!Being in labor and having our baby. Seriously, I cannot wait.

How big is baby: The Brodster is topping the scales at 4 # 7 oz as of last Wed.

Much better than a Jicama!!
The level of amniotic fluid in your uterus has reached its maximum at 33 weeks pregnant, making it likely that you have more baby than fluid now. That's one reason why you're probably feeling lots of nudges and pushes — there's less liquid to cushion the blows. (Of course that means you're even closer to your baby now!)

If your uterine walls had eyes, here's what you'd see: your fetus acting more and more like a baby, with his or her eyes closing during sleep and opening while awake. And because those uterine walls are becoming thinner, more light penetrates the womb, helping your baby differentiate between day and night (now if only baby can remember that difference on the outside!).

And good news! Your baby has reached an important milestone about now: The development of his or her own immune system that (along with antibodies from you) will be able to provide protection from mild infections.
