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.
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!

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. :)
