(Tuesday October 7 , 2014 to Monday October 13 , 2014)
8 to go.. :)
Baby is :
Baby is the size of a napa cabbage
During week 32, Axel weighs around 4 pounds (about the size of a Napa cabbage ) and is about 17 inches long, taking a lot of space in the uterus.
She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair. Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.
How I’m Feeling:
I’m feeling fine. I would love to see the time go a little faster, haha! Damn it’s so long during the last weeks. Everything is done, her room is done, the paintings for her room are done (I made two for her), her suitcase for the hospital is done.. oh wait I still need to finish mine too! but she could arrive and everything would be super ready for her.
I try to cherish every single moment of that pregnancy since it’s the last one.. every kick remind me of how magical carrying life is.
How I’m Changing:
Not changing much.. I just find this pregnancy harder (in the end) that the two other pregnancies.. Maybe it’s because it’s the third one in less than 4 years.. Some times I have contractions, but not the braxton hicks type that are painless.. they come with pain.. not super intense, but enough to be super annoying. I’m still bleeding randomly..
What I’m Eating/What I’m NOT Eating:
Yeah! Less heartburn this week! But for how long, hahahahaha!
Still eating the same, I just don’t have a big appetite.
I have to stop myself sometimes otherwise I would eat tons of sugar. What kind of pregnant lady am I.. craving just at the end of the pregnancy?!?!
Total Weight Gained:
At the beginning of the week it was +11.5 pounds.
The usual, walking, playing with the kids, going to the park..
Prenatal Care :
Still taking vitamins, calcium supplements and eating healthy too.
I saw my doctor on October 7. Everything is doing fine. The bleeding are still caused by a very sensible cervix.. We had an hard time listening to her heart.. she was moving like crazy, hahaha!
I saw her once again during an ultrasound (my doctor does one every single time).
My next appointment is on October 21, 2014 (34 weeks). I will also have a big ultrasound on October 15, 2014 (33 weeks).
My nights are crappy.. I get up every 1h30.. each night!! -_-
See you next week!
