33 weeks brings me well into my third trimester. The third trimester for me has meant I get my mild acid reflux a bit more often and a couple charley horses. Well, one real one. Then somebody told me about putting a bar of soap in your bed and when you feel one coming on, just reach for it with your foot and the pain will stop and not get worse. Well, the next time I felt it, I didn’t have a bar of soap, but I found the corner of the bed with my foot. And the pain stopped before it got bad! Way better than trying to stretch it out during the pain which really does nothing and you hurt for a couple days after.
Other than that, I have learned that my hips and tailbone hurt less when I turn over in bed if I don’t put a pillow between them. I discovered this during Tim’s work trip when one of the hotels only had two pillows in the entire room. I still use one now to support my belly, but I just don’t put it between my knees.
My doctor appointments, which are every 2 weeks now, are quite boring. I am measuring “beautifully” and my blood work comes back looking “gorgeous” and I have nothing ever to ask my OBGYN. We listen to the heartbeat, Calvin says “wow!” and then we go home. Nice and quick!
