33 weeks: Is it hot in here, or is it just me?



At my doctors appointment this week I was measuring a little smaller than 33 weeks (doctor said this is totally normal) but I feel like I am MUCH bigger!

How far along?
33 weeks

How big is baby?
Celery or a junior tennis racket
 ~17.2" and ~4.19 lbs

What's baby up to this week?
He is now keeping his eyes open while awake. He is also starting to coordinate breathing with sucking and swallowing and is likely sucking his thumb.

Symptoms?
Still having trouble catching my breath and my internal body temp seems to have set itself at just shy of 4 million degrees...but other than that you won't hear any complaints from me!

Maternity Clothes?
Getting dressed in the mornings is not my favorite thing...I don't have a lot of options and I am wearing a lot of the same things over and over again.

Sleep?
While third trimester tired has nothing on the first trimester, I am finding myself crawling into bed earlier and earlier and draaaagggging myself out of bed in the mornings. I'm still sleeping pretty well though, with only a few bathroom breaks throughout the night and I am able to fall right back asleep. 

Missing Anything?
Bananas...while they are GD approved, they are really high on the glycemic index, so I really can only eat a half of a banana at a time. Not only do I love bananas...but I have been having some killer calf cramps and the potassium has always done wonders for that in the past.

Craving?
Sour candies...What I wouldn't give to sit down with a bag of Sour Patch Kids and go crazy!

Aversions?
Nothing really...although I am getting really tired of protein. I know it's good for me, for my diet, and for the baby...but what I wouldn't give for a fully carb-filled snack or meal #BagelMe

Emotions?
I "think" I have done a pretty good job of avoiding any pregnancy melt-downs or cranky moments, but I have to admit, it's been really hard. My hormones have been out of whack this week and the littlest of things are driving me crazy. Out of nowhere I will find myself frustrated or on the verge of tears for no reason...so far I have been able to stay reasonable and talk myself off the ledge the few times this has happened...but I am here to tell you...it isn't easy.

Movement? 
He is quite the mover and shaker...literally! Sometimes he will kick so hard or move so abruptly I'm surprised AJ doesn't feel the bed shake!

Best Moment of the week
At my doctors appt this week I saw a different doctor (mine had been called to surgery) and she mentioned that she usually schedules a sonogram around 37 weeks for her GD patients to check on baby's size (to make sure he isn't too big) AND she mentioned that since I'm doing so well with my blood sugar I might be able to test less, but I would have to check with my doctor in 2 weeks! Let's hope my doctor feels the same way on both accounts...getting another sonogram would be the silver lining to this GD for sure :)

Pregnancy Brain Moments
Overall I'm just pretty darn forgetful these days.

Looking forward to?
My family baby shower this weekend! 

Projects/Baby Gear purchased?
We went shopping this weekend and bought a few more things for the nursery and started getting things hung up. We now have curtains and the shelf above his changing table. It's pretty much my favorite room in the house!

Running?
 Still going really well...although, this beautiful weather has made it nearly impossible to stay indoors on the treadmill though. My hips are a little more sore after running outdoors but nothing crazy and it usually goes away within the day.
