33 Weeks!!!

33 Weeks!
My dropped Belly!
Baby Journal Update:
Your baby is a little over 17 inches long and weighs around 4-1/2 pounds, for another half-pound gain in a single week. His larger size doesn't allow for his previous acrobatic maneuvers-there's simply no room. Instead, movements now tend to consist mostly of nudges, kicks, or jabs.
Many babies already settle into a head-down position, the ideal position for birth. Some, especially smaller babies, continue to rotate for a few weeks more.
Now for my update: I'm feeling about the same. I'm still having a lot of braxton hicks contractions along with some real one's. I'm still taking my brethane on days when they are really bad. My doctor's office called today to let me know my urine culture came back normal this time! I was very happy to hear this, but now realize that the pain I'm feeling and the blood in my urine is from my interstitial cystitis. I will continue to take an antibiotic every night to prevent another infection. I'm hoping this gives me some relief. I'm going to post some belly pictures where I think it's pretty obvious that Baylor has dropped. I think they may be why my heartburn seems to better than it was. I probably shouldn't say that or I'm going to jinx myself. I think that is all the updates for me right now. I will of course let you know how my appointment on Tuesday goes. I'm praying this boy stays put for at least 3 more weeks!
How far along are you? 33 Weeks, 1 day
Total weight gain? 13lbs

just depends.

Best Moment of the Week? hearing Baylor's heartbeat. That never gets old.

Labor Signs? contractions are increasing and Baylor has dropped. Dr. D felt his head on Tuesday. Praying he hold off a few more weeks.
Belly Button? very ,very shallow!
