Week 33 with Baby 2

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

How far along? 33 weeks (picture is 33 weeks and 5 days)
Weight Gain: 15 pounds
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: Mostly good. Waking up to go to the bathroom a few times a night, but that's been constant for the past couple months. 
Best moment this week: We switched Birth Centers! We will now be delivering at BabyMoon Inn, and we couldn't be more excited. For several weeks we've been feeling like we just don't fit into the culture at Blossom, and we didn't like the communication style of our midwives. We toured BabyMoon on Saturday and had our first appointment this week. Everyone there is great, and everything about it reminds us of MN Birth Center where Aria was born. I was nervous to make the switch so late in the game but feel like we definitely made the right choice.
Miss anything? Holding Aria comfortably. I can only hold her for short periods of time now, and it makes me sad.
Movement: YES!
Food Cravings: no
Food Aversions/anything making you queasy: no
Symptoms: Feeling good. My chiropractor and midwife confirmed Baby Girl is head down and VERY engaged, which means she could join us early.
Labor signs: more braxton hicks this week, but my midwife said not to worry. It's normal.
Belly button in or out: out
Wedding rings on or off: on
Mood: Happy and Sometimes Irritable
Looking forward to: My Dad's visit! He is coming at the end of the week for a short visit, and I can't wait to see him. I think Aria is even more excited than me though!

Week 32 with baby 2

How far along? 32 weeks (picture is 32 weeks and 4 days)

Weight Gain: 15 pounds
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: ok
Best moment this week: Aria finally feeling better! We had quite the scare over the weekend with Aria's temp rising to 102. She had her Well Visit right before Thanksgiving and had a low-grade fever the night before her appointment. She didn't have a fever the day of the appointment, so her Dr. said she should still get her immunizations. I should have gone with my "motherly intuition" and waited on the shots, because my poor baby girl got really sick the next day. My guess is the immunizations weakened her immune system and allowed the cold/flu to fully take over. She fell asleep in my arms on Thanksgiving Day, which is VERY unlike her. We woke her up every 3 hours throughout the night to monitor her fever and give her tylenol/motrin intermittently. Her fever lasted for 5 days, and she is FINALLY better this week!!! Having a sick child is heart breaking, and I feel thankful this is the most sick Aria has been! 
Miss anything? wine mostly - especially since Peter, Kelsey, Jake, and Makinzie indulged on Thanksgiving
Movement: lots
Food Cravings: cheese cake 
Food Aversions/anything making you queasy: not really. 
Symptoms: still tired from being sick. Otherwise I'm feeling pretty good with some sciatic nerve pain, but the chiropractor is helping a lot.
Labor signs:  a few braxton hicks
Belly button in or out: out
Wedding rings on or off: on
Mood: Happy
Looking forward to: belly photos next week
