Yep – 33 weeks. That means one month until I’m considered full term, and only 7 weeks until June Bug’s due date. By this week, June Bug weighs around 4.5 lbs (2 kg) and is around 19 inches long. His/her main job is to put on fat and mature those lungs!
I’ve been having some troubles sleeping the last week (lots of waking up and hip pain!) but last night I slept WONDERFULLY!! I only woke up once between 11 pm and 5:30 am, when I got up to use the bathroom, and then woke once between then and the alarm at 7:30 and was even able to sleep with the snooze until 8. Although that sounds like a lot of wake-ups (3 or 4), that’s a LOT of uninterrupted sleep for me! I’m wondering if I wake during the week more often because I’m not sleeping as deeply because of June Bug’s movements and the trains are waking me up up every hour or two. I guess it doesn’t really matter WHY, but it was nice to get a great night’s sleep! And my hips didn’t hurt throughout the night, which was lovely!!!
Here’s this week’s belly pics:
I’m definitely waddling now and it’s taking extra effort to climb the 17 steps (!!!!!) upstairs, and coming downstairs I’m having to be much more careful (ie. hang onto the railing and take my time). I try to plan my trips upstairs now =)
