Pregnancy update II

Here I am again linking up with my pregnancy update! It's been almost 4 weeks since I last and there is lots to tell, but I will keep it simple :)

How far along are you? I am 33 weeks and 1 days.

Baby's Growth: Baby now weighs about 4 pounds and averages 17 inches long from head to heel. He/she has been in position (head down) for a few weeks already and we hope it stays like that! :)
The heart rate is at 150 and measuring right on. Baby is moving a lot! and I mean a TON! thankfully it's mostly during the day. I hope we keep that schedule after birth :P [I may be asking for too much!]

Symptons: My legs are not as numb or hurting as they were before during bedtime. I'm hapy about  that! I still wake up only once to go to the bathroom so it's not awful. Breathing has gotten better, basically because I am using more pillows to lift up my head/neck and chest while sleeping. However, my hands are hurting. Every morning is a challege to grab my toothbrush, lift things up or simply make a fist with my hand. I talked to my Dr. about it and she said it is very common. My hands are swelling. As long it doesn't come with fever or becomes more intense, I should be alright.

Cravings? Food Aversion? I really like chinese food and anything sushi! I had some when we visited family last week. I was in heaven!! :)
My sweet little worm at 21 weeks!

Maternity Clothes? I grew out of most of them. Sometimes I wear my husbands sweat pants to be more comfortable at home. I still have some clothes of my own that fit well, but I try not to use them for every day things unless I go out. That way I don't have to be doing laundry that often. I did however get a new dress for weddings and special ocaccions. I did not have any and I have two weddings coming up!

What I'm looking forward to...Again, the baby shower :) Like I mentioned before, I will be 34 weeks and technically only 4 weeks away from "it can happen any time!" I'll do my best to post pictures of it. It will be next weekend!! :)

Medical Stuff: We have one more every other week visit and after that we'll start with weekly visits. I My blood pressure last time was 110/60 and I am weighting 151.4 lb. I used to weight 120 before baby! I guess I am also looking forward to feeling alot lighter!!

Discussion Question:Will you find out the gender of the baby before birth? Or have you already? (I've been keeping the question light the past couple weeks because I am just fried from all this moving)!

Answer: We won't find out the gender. We think that there are so few surprises in life nowadays that we want this to be one of them!! Plus it makes the baby pool much more exciting!! :)
Also I do not like pink very much  and I don't like it when , if it's a girl, EVERYTHING they get is pink, and if it's a boy: blue. No thank you! not for us. :P
