33 Weeks

In the past couple of days I have made the transition into....discomfort.  It's hard to get up after lying down, the acid reflux is worse when I get it, and rolling from side to side in the bed is extremely difficult and hurts.
My hips get VERY sore after laying on one side for part of the night, then I flip over (with extreme discomfort) and lay the other way until I wake up with that hip hurting.  I never had the hip pain with the other two pregnancies.  I also have muscle ...something...like restless legs.  Flexing and tensing helps.
Fun fun fun fun fun!  Only 7 more weeks till due date!  Here's more about Ruby this week:

This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds and has passed the 17-inch mark. She's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and her skeleton is hardening. The bones in her skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for her to fit through the birth canal. These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as her brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

Have you been walking without me? I will be home in just a few more days. We need to plan an evening at the track to keep you inspired to "push". See you soon!
