32 & 33 Week Pregnancy Update

September 23, 2016

32 & 33 Week Pregnancy Update

How far along: 33 weeks + 6 days

Symptoms: Dehydration, despite drinking gallons of water I feel permanently dehydrated. Nose Bleeds, I had this in the first trimester. They won’t be full on nose bleeds but I am having the odd blood vessel burst and noticing it when I blow my nose. Braxton Hicks have finally come along (not that I was wishing they would) these took me a while to realise what they were as the NHS website says they are not painful – however I disagree! They are definitely uncomfortable and fell like cramping/tightening/the feeling when you’ve ate too much, just above your belly button. Last but certainly not least, constipation! Sorry thats TMI but I have always vouched to be completely honest on this blog – warts and all!
Food Cravings: Milk, I cannot get enough of drinking milk at the moment, has to be full fat though! Volvic Touch of Fruit Lemon & Lime – I am literally drinking it by the gallon!
Movement: Tonnes, but it’s now a completely different type of movement! It’s all about baby stretching or changing position instead of kicking. He seems to be awake for much longer now, which is quite interesting!
Gender: Boy!
Sleep: Getting better, since ditching my u-shape pregnancy pillow I am a lot more comfortable. I sleep most of the night without a pregnancy pillow but sometimes I wake up and my hips hurt so will use the sausage pregnancy pillow to take the strain off. Still getting up a few times for a pee though!
Stretch Marks: I think there is something on its way, it looks as though my skin is starting to pull slightly underneath my belly button but I don’t think these will turn to stretch marks until after labour. It’s hard to see clearly but I think it’s safe to say I have been caught though. I don’t know why and I am sure this will change once I have them, but stretch marks don’t really bother me. I’m already at that proud of my body stage, however once they actually arrive I will probably hate them!
Miss Anything: Nothing strikes me this week – I am still struggling to get comfortable and am feeling over hot a lot of the time – however this week has been fairly normal.
Best Moment: Our 4d scan was lovely! I will be doing a whole post on this with pictures! It was a real pregnancy highlight and such a nice moment to have in later pregnancy.
Worst Moment: Again baby had reduce movement which scared me a little – but as normal he soon pepped up. Little sod!
Looking forward to: Being a mama! I honestly cannot wait now!

    I usually end up kicking all of my pregnancy cushions off the bed during the night because they make me hot. I do find having one between my legs does help with hip/back pain though. Milk has been my no.1 pregnancy craving – cannot get enough of the stuff. Totally agree about Braxton Hicks – I find them painful too.
    Not long now, Georgina! 🙂

    You are looking so fab! Eek, not too long to go now 🙂 I'm so excited for you.
    Funny enough, I just ditched my pregnancy pillow and slept better too, I think sometimes they can be overhyped. I will still use it a bit but I don't think I need it all night, every night, it just gets in the way and wakes me up!
