Total weight gain? 17 pounds as of 33 weeks. It's amazing how much you can gain in a week when you have a major appetite increase from steriod shots anddddd you're on bed rest.. HA.

Maternity clothes? Still only for bumpies.

Stretch marks? NOPE!

Sleep? Waking up to pee has commenced. Most of the time just once early in the morning.

Best moment? Baby Ada is no longer breech!!!! I'M SO EXCITED!!
Miss anything? Having no pregnancy complications. The past few weeks have been very eventful to say the least. I had a two-night hospital stay for preterm labor at 32 weeks. You can read more about that hereAnd then this past Friday (the day I turned 33 weeks) I went back to labor & delivery because I had a bad feeling. Zach was out of town so I didn't want to put it off, and then something end up going wrong. I found someone to watch Ramsey and went in to be checked. My blood pressure was high (so I'm officially hypertensive now- which is why I was induced with Ramsey), and my pulse was reallyyyyy high. I was laying in the hospital bed RELAXED, and my pulse was 120.... So no wonder I was feeling odd at home. I can only imagine what it actually was at home- it took me almost three hours to get to the hospital after originally calling in. So long story short, I had a CT scan to rule out pulmonary embolism since I had been experiencing shortness of breath and chest pressure. Everything came back clear (thank goodness!) and I was finally discharged. I'm finally feeling somewhat back to normal- best I've felt in a few weeks! I'm having contractions and still cramping, but baby girl is positioned a little higher than before and it's made a TON of difference in how I feel. Hoping things will go smoothly moving forward!

Movement? She is such a strong girl. From the beginning she moved really strong, which surprised Zach and I both. And she's soooo forceful and jabby. Ramsey was never jabby! I think she's going to have the most fiery personality. I definitely do not expect her to be as easy as Ramsey. I think she's going to be the more difficult of the two for sure. LOL.

Food cravings? Fruit fruit fruitttt.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Luckily, no. Basically the only symptom I haven't experienced these past few weeks.

Have you started to show yet? I can't believe how big my belly is!! After receiving the steroid shots I feel like it doubled in size overnight! I doubt the steroid shots caused that (I'm pretty sure they're just for lung development), but it's crazy how big my belly suddenly got.

Gender? Sweet baby girl.

Happy or moody most of the time? Definitely happy that I'm still pregnant. 

Looking forward to? August 3rd! Because I'm hypertensive again, I will be induced at 37 weeks. There is a chance she comes on her own beforehand, or I may need to be induced sooner depending on my blood pressure. I'm really hoping I make it to my induction date, because she definitely needs to cook as long as possible. It's so exciting to have a date though!! It's so close already, and I know it'll be here before we know it. My grandmother's birthday is actually August 3rd, and she was soooooo excited when I called to tell her! I'm gonna try my best to squeeze her out before midnight, because I know it would totally make her day if Ada shared her birthday!
