How Am I Doing at 33 Weeks?

My baby is making his presence felt every day. From his kicks and somersaults, to my growing tummy, it always gives me a warm feeling to have this tiny being inside of me.

I am on my 33rd week going on my 34th this Friday. My pocket pregnancy tracker tells me that:
1. He is 17 to 19 inches long already
2. He weighs around 4.5 lbs
3. He could still grow an inch next week!

Let's see how our baby is actually doing after I'm done with my OB checkup this Friday.

For the mommy (that's me!):

1. Insomnia will strike more.
I am not feeling this because I'm asleep as soon as I hit the bed because of exhaustion from work.

2. More midnight trips to the bathrooms.
I have my CR trip before I go to bed. Sometimes I wake up early morning to take a pee. Usually, it can hold off till I wake up.

3. Frequent leg cramps.
I've had a lot of this lately. Banana to the rescue!

4. Hearburn.
I eat light meals spread throughout the day so I haven't experienced heartburn yet.

5. Uncomfortable while sleeping.
I feel this when I lie down longer on the right side. I always try to sleep on the left side, but I always wake up on the right side.

6. Constipation.
Thanks to my high fiber and liquid intake, I haven't experienced pregnancy constipation yet!

I try to have my daily walk, either during lunchtime or after dinner, but I get so "hingal" lately because of this watermelon-sized tummy that I'm carrying.

A few more weeks to go and we'll be seeing this cute bundle of joy. Happy (and tiring) days are coming!
