33 Weeks!

  • How far along?  33 weeks
  • Total weight gain: About 20 lbs. When I saw the number on the scale I started yelling out excuses, "We just ate breakfast!" "I just drank a coffee and a bottle of water!" "I'm retaining water...just look at my feet!" "I haven't had a bowel movement in 2 days!" - My doctor started cracking up. She said I'm on track to gain 20-25lbs total and she's thrilled with that.
  • Maternity clothes?  Yes, although I can still wear some non-maternity tops, yoga pants, pajamas, and dresses. 
  • Stretch marks? I have a couple below my belly button now. Nothing too major though.
  • Sleep: This is actually my least favorite part of the day. My belly hurts in the mornings from trying to flip from side to side and from the multiple times I have to haul myself out of bed at night. I also have a bit of insomnia some nights.
  • Best moment this week: Wes finally put together the dresser, so I can start washing some clothes and putting things away. I've ordered the changing table which is the last piece of furniture we need. After the shower I'll decorate it a bit and get some pictures.
  • Miss Anything? Having a lap. Cutting the cat's claws was interesting this week.
  • Movement: All the time. The baby's running out of room, so it can be hurty at times.
  • Food cravings: Still craving cold, orange things.
  • Food aversions: Nothing really.
  • Gender: No idea.
  • Labor Signs: Not sure if Braxton Hicks are considered a sign of labor. I don't think so.
  • Symptoms: Swollen feet are probably the worst symptom I have. My feet just look ridiculous.
  • Belly Button in or out? In. I don't see it popping out until closer to the end, if at all.
  • Wedding rings on or off? Off. :-(
  • Looking forward to: My baby shower on Saturday!  


  1. With all four of my pregnancies I had problems sleeping at the end. I think it's nature's way of getting you ready to be up all night with the baby once it comes!!! Try to nap anytime that you will get really good at that once that baby comes!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Some nights are definitely better than others. I find the nights after Aqua Zumba are the best. I wish I could practice more napping. I just don't think my boss would appreciate it! ;-P
