33 Weeks

How I’m feeling at 33 weeks:

Pretty much the same stuff — heartburn, fat feet, ninja-like movement, beautiful hair… The weather has taken a wonderful turn for the better and I’m loving the lower temperatures. As I mentioned I’ve watching my sodium intake, as well as my calories, to try to figure out how someone can gain 6 pounds in one week. Eating less salty stuff and drinking more water has helped me shed nearly the whole 6 pounds which is crazy that it really is just retaining water.

Update from BabyCenter.com:

This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. He’s rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren’t fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don’t entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

{Note that even BabyCenter.com thinks Cleetus the Fetus resembles an alien so boo-yah!}

Countdown: 41 days!
