Pregnancy Update – 33 Weeks

Only 7 weeks left till my due date and just 4 weeks till this baby is full term.  I can’t wait!!!  This pregnancy continues to be completely different from my Lucas pregnancy and I am now suffering from high blood pressure.  My blood pressure isn’t super high but it’s high for me.  At my normal doctor’s appointment, my blood pressure hovers around 110/50 but last week’s appointment it clocked in at 139/80. The doctor didn’t seem too worried yet but if it continues to be high then we might be looking at a 37 week induction.  On my end, I continue to workout and am avoiding salty foods.  My next appointment is 11/14 so I’ll see how I’m doing then.

33 weeks

High blood pressure combined with my “off” blood counts are making this pregnancy a bit rougher on my body than Lucas was.   I am also HUGE, like really huge.   At my 30 week appointment my fundal height was measuring 2-3 week ahead and at last week’s appointment, it is measuring a solid 3+ weeks ahead.   There isn’t one person (including the doctor) who expects this baby to be late.  I’m not getting myself too excited about an earlier than Christmas Eve arrival since I could be in for the long haul.  January 2014 is still a possibility! YIKES!

How far along? 33 weeks + 2 days
Maternity clothes?  I’m barely fitting in my maternity tops and forget my workout clothes.  I feel like I’m exposing my belly to EVERYONE while I run.
Symptoms: Tired all the time, battling anemia, high blood pressure, tons and tons of Braxton Hicks and restless legs.  This pregnancy rocks!  Hahaha.  I can’t get through a walk around the block without tons of contractions.
Miss Anything? Wine and sleeping
Food cravings: Nothing
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show yet: I look like I’m due any day and I can’t go anywhere without someone commenting.  I was offered a chair while voting yesterday and I told them they would laugh if they knew how much longer I had.  I told them and the next question is whether I’m hiding a twin in there.  :)

    I felt completely ridiculously huge at the end of my pregnancy too. I feel ya! Hang in there girl, I know the end is tough. You continue to impress me with your work out schedule though. You are doing more than my non-pregnant self!
