33 Weeks = 5-Pound Weight

Today, I'm 33 weeks and 2 days pregnant, and at this point, babies weigh between 4.2 and 5.8 pounds, like a durian. Yesterday, the ultrasound tech guessed that Guido is about 5lbs 2oz. right now, so I really phoned it in this week and busted out a 5-pound weight to represent him. This was better than trying to hunt down a durian, whatever that is.  


By now, Guido's eyes are open when he's awake. His skeleton is hardening, and his brain is developing like crazy.

When I think of symptoms, "sweaty" springs to mind—along with exhausted, stretch marks, linea nigra, heartburn, swollen feet, and round ligament pain. All that said, I really do feel fine overall. Just not as fine as I did a couple weeks ago... and I know I'm just going to get more uncomfortable as time goes on. Sign me up!

Durian. Oh, the durian. A co-worker received a gift basket from a client in Japan a while back and in it was Durian flavored candy. I couldn't read the words on the package, but the picture looked like a sweet citrus fruit. So, I opened one up, popped it in my mouth and within two seconds spit it out and couldn't wait to brush my teeth. It tasted like a mix between rotten onions and dirty feet! I looked up Japanese fruit and found the picture. They call it "stink fruit" and I can see why. People actually eat and enjoy the stuff! Yuck! It's definitely a good thing you couldn't find it!

M--I'm SO glad I didn't haul my ass to the Asian market in search of a durian. I almost did! A couple years ago, one of Danny's friends brought us back some candy from Japan, and holy crap. Every single piece was horrendous. I wonder if there was a piece of durian candy in there.
