    33 weeks

    How far along: 33w
    Weight: 148lb
    Sleep: I’m getting it 🙂
    Gender: Can you say testicles?
    Movement: It’s slowing down, but what he’s lacking in frequency he’s making up in strength. You can see a good foot sticking off the side of my belly from time to time. Or a bondy baby butt.
    Feeling: Good, and tired. I could really use naps now. I’m 5 weeks away from the end of work though, and hopefully I’ll have some ME time at home before S2 arrives to take those naps. Oh, and as a weird feeling experience: the skin of my belly is feeling really numb right around my belly button. What gives?
    Food cravings: I haven’t been too hungry lately. It’s interesting: my appetite seems to have subsided, and I can’t eat very much when I do eat. So not much in the craving department… although today I’m really craving some pumpkin pie. All the pumpkin signs around me are very influential 🙂
    Fetal development:
    This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. He’s rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren’t fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don’t entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.
