My pregnancy is boring.
So I've put together a bump...ollage.
Are you excited?
It's going to be bumptastic!
But you have to wait until the end.
Don't worry, this is short.
How far along: 33 weeks...even if baby is 2 weeks late, we are still in single digit weeks. I've also been really really feeling like I've got a 41 weeker in here. As we've discussed, this is fine with me as it gets us out of Leo territory, you just stay in there little VIRGO!
Weight Gain: Up another pound, 19 lbs. total.
What's Up With My Body: The last 2 days I've experienced a small amount of sciatic nerve pain running from my left butt cheek through my tailbone...but it's gone today. This seems to be the way with ALL of my pregnancy symptoms, around for a day or two and then gone. I've experienced a little bit of everything all in small doses EXCEPT CONSTIPATION OF COURSE, that was still my worst and most persistent pregnancy symptom to date. But other than my 2 days of sciatica I'm feeling really good.
Gender: While hypnobabying this week there is a point in one of the CD's in which you're supposed to visualize your birth from a first person perspective, so you don't watch yourself give birth but visualize being inside your own body giving birth. Guys, while "under hypnosis" I gave birth to a boy. A BLONDE haired boy...which leads me to believe it was all a bunch of crap, because as we've discussed a blondie is nearly impossible for me unless my husband has hidden blonde genes...technically anything is possible, so maybe I really did imagine my baby...but it totally made me think I've got a little boy in there.
Emotions: My emotions have actually calmed down a bit this week, we're even throwing a party this weekend AND construction is starting AND...I'm actually ok. No meltdowns.
That's all I've got.
See, boring pregnancy.
And on to the bumptastic bumpollage.
Normally I wouldn't be one to put pictures of myself in my underwear up anywhere on the internet...or even a bikini...would never happen, but there's something about this pregnant belly that makes your body feel like it's not really YOUR body...and apparently that makes it ok. Like it's ok because I'm just this walking incubator right now NOT a real person. This is not my real stomach, these are not my real boobs, IT ALL BELONGS TO BABY. Hahaha, anyone else feel like this? I know some people feel terribly unattractive and fat while they're pregnant and I fully agree that in certain clothes I'm like UGH, am I really THAT wide? But walking around in my underwear? I feel really pretty and sexy and love my bump. My thighs though? Different story...notice I've cut them out of the piccie! Still my same thighs, still hate them.
I think a lot of growth happened right around 30 weeks...remember when I was worried at 26 weeks about my bump not growing? I'm so glad I documented my crazy...I find it entertaining now. People still like to tell me my bump is small, but whatevs, I'll take the "little bump" as we're still measuring right on track.
