She does these cute weekly updates that I think I would love to do for my last few weeks to have to look back on. So I'm stealing her idea. Thanks Vintage Apple!
Here are some picture updates. These first two are last week, 32 weeks.
And here is this week, 33 weeks. Can you believe this big old beach ball I carry around all day?! Unreal.
How far along? 33 Weeks
Maternity clothes? Oh my goodness yes...don't tell me that you know someone that is 33 weeks along and still in their skinny mini clothes. I don't want to meet those women.
Stretch marks? Not yet, but I feel like my poor ol' tummy is stretched to the max so it could happen any day now.
Sleep: This is not my favorite thing to report on. I toss and turn, toss and turn, go to the bathroom, think about work stuff, toss and turn, think about the baby girl, turn over some more...it's been a rough week. Last night I tried taking a bath and then reading a non-pregnancy, non-here's how you will mess up your kiddo, non-breast feeding book and I slept so much better. I am re-reading (for the babillionth time) East of Eden and I think it helped to think about something other than pregnancy, baby, delivery, or parenting right before bed. Plus I have this amazing husband who every time I roll over rubs my back or arm to help soothe me. Marry this kind of man the minute you meet him ladies.
Best moment this week: This week at our baby class we got to tour the OB unit in the hospital. It made us both so excited that the next time we are there will be to meet our little girl. Yes, I'm crying.
Miss Anything?Coffee!! It is Fall here and, as if I need to remind you, Fall is my favorite. And for Fall I really love warm, yummy coffees. Decaf is working okay for me, but it's still not the same. Very, very soon I will probably miss eggnog too. One of our favorite things is to watch a Christmas movie and have some rum and eggnog.
Movement: She is a hyper little one and has been from the very first kick. Every time we listen to her heartbeat the doctor even comments on how she runs away and moves so much. I love it! And now I can see her move my whole stomach when she rearranges. It's so fascinating.
Food cravings: Apples! I eat at least one a day but usually two. And I feel like I could chug a gallon of apple juice Look Whose Talkin' style.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not today :)
Labor Signs: Nothing really. A couple of weeks ago I started feeling Braxton Hicks contractions, but nothing like labor.
Belly Button in or out? Embarrassingly out, out, out!
Wedding rings on or off? I took these off last weekend to store them in a safe place not because I had to yet, but because I am terrified at how horrible my memory is right now and I take them off at night and don't want to lose them. And my sweet hubby "re-proposed" and gave me a great fakey to wear to get me through for a while. Now I smile every time I look down and think about him thinking about me enough to buy me this.
Mood:I've been a little anxious this week. I don't know what about for sure, but I've just been a little worried and excited.
Looking forward to:Packing our hospital bags! This past week in class we talked about how it's a good idea to start doing this now. A bag for her and a bag for us. Plus I bought my "going to the hospital" outfit to wear so I can't wait to get it in the mail and pack it up.
