33 Weeks and a fruit change!

OK, well actually 32 weeks & 6 days, but since tomorrow is Yom Kippur I have to either do my post a day early or a day late; I chose a day early. Here's an update: S.A.L. is literally sucking the life out of me! No worries, he is doing wonderfully, I on the other hand 'eh'. My hemoglobin level is really low, not transfusion low but probably infusion low. My hematologist would like for me to have a treatment via IV, but he won't do anything unless my OBGYN writes the prescription for it. We'll see what happens. Here is the most recent bump picture of me. Not many people seem to believe that I'm 8 months pregnant. I've NEVER had so many people tell me 'you're so small'. Hello, where have all these people been my life?!?!

Per the last visit with the MFM, Tofurkey was weighing in at 3lbs 7oz, and I'm weighing in at.....yeah right, I would never put that in print!!! And here is my new fruit:

Weeks 33-36 (Month 8): HoneydewAverage size: 17.2-18.7 in, 4.2-5.8 lbBaby’s senses are continuing to improve -- when light peeks in through your (extremely) stretched belly, those tiny eyelids and irises blink and dilate. And, baby can now recognize and react to simple songs… time to start practicing your lullabies! Growth (at least inside your womb) is starting to slow, and you may notice baby descend into your pelvis at the end of this month.
