33 weeks!

And still looking good! We got the results today from our growth ultrasound and Brady bug is measuring 4lbs and 5oz! He is in the 50th percentile! Just a few oz. smaller than normal according to our MW. Fluid looks a little low, but on the normal side. They will keep an eye on that, and I have an order to schedule another ultrasound for the end of next week.

While I was there, she listened to the heart beat with the doppler. The heart rate was a little low for what it has been so far this pg so I had an NST for some extra monitoring. It turned out ok but man was I having a small panic attack when the heart rate would go up and down. I think she is going to stay on the cautious side though because she wanted to see me next week instead of in 2 weeks.

She gave me some chiropractor recs since he is still breech. I am going to research the technique they use, the Webster technique. I know it involves hip rotations and in the past I've had issues with my hip rotation and being crooked so I'm not opposed to this type of intervention. I am however, opposed to a version. At least at this time. I just don't see how putting myself through some pain and possible stressing out the little one is worth it for a 50% success rate. Even if it is successful, he could still turn as well. More can be read about both of those here.

Oh and I lost about a pound and a half! Woohoo!! Now for the pic and survey!

*How far along?: 33 weeks!

*Total weight gain: Lost 1.5 lbs since the last appointment. Total weight gain is 18.5 lbs.

*How big is baby?: About the size of a honeydew, over 17 inches long from head to foot, and thanks to the u/s is weighing in at 4lbs 5oz. I think he is having another growth spurt but we will find out for sure at the next u/s at the end of next week!

*Sleep?: Up ever 2 hours to pee. Don't feel too rested these days.

*How are you feeling physically?: Still getting some hip pain here and there, but overall pretty good.

*How are you feeling emotionally?: Today was a little scary. His heart rate was a little low and they did some extra monitoring but overall a great appointment!

*Best moment this week?: Hearing how big he is!

*Movement?: He is still very much a mover and a shaker! Just this morning I woke up with his head up in my ribs and rubbed his little head until he moved.

*Food cravings?: Yes, all the sweets I cannot have. :(

*Food aversions?: None!

*Labor signs?: None besides BH.

*What I miss: Eating whatever I want, not planning every meal and snack

*What I'm looking forward to: my shower is this Saturday!!! Woohoo!!!
