33 Weeks




Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 33 Weeks!  Baby girl turned 33 weeks on my husband's birthday.  33 is HIS number. :)
Size of baby: Baby Vaughn is about 17.2 inches long from head to heel and about 4.5 pounds! (They compared it to the weight of a large pineapple this week).  Getting so big!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: ~ +17-18 lb.  I have a doc appt. tomorrow.
Maternity Clothes: Always maternity pants or stretchy yoga/sleep pants.  If I just have to run some errands or if I'm just at home, I'll even just throw on my regular short sleeves, just make sure I have a long tank underneath.  Really trying to stretch out the wardrobe here! lol
Gender: Baby V is a GIRL!!!
Movement: Lots and lots of movement still!  She moves so much when I eat or drink anything.  She's also super active right when I wake up (probably wanting me to eat haha)!  I can feel her little booty up high and to the right of my belly.  My belly looks a little lopsided.  Most kicks are on the bottom left (I think she's folded in half), so I'm hoping she's still head down.
Sleep: I still sleep like a rock, BUT I went from being able to make it all night (well, 11pm-6am) without peeing, but now I get up like 3 times.  She must be lower because I can go to the bathroom right before getting in bed and still have to go again in like 20 minutes before I even fall asleep.  Luckily, I can still fall back asleep within minutes after getting up in the middle of the night.  I appreciate the night light in our room, too! ha
What I miss: If I had to say something, I would say that I miss not getting up at night to potty.  But honestly, it's not a huge hassle.
Cravings: mmm, gonna have to say cereal.  I don't think it's any specific kind though.  We picked up a box of raisin bran crunch and it was gone in 4 days.  I don't think Nathan ate any of it.  Woops!  It just always sounds good, even for dinner!  I use LOTS of milk, too.  So each bite is like a huge spoon of milk and 2 pieces of cereal haha!  If I'm going to plow through it, I'll try and not get the most sugary cereal available!
Symptoms: Growing belly, frequent trips to potty...all things I can deal with!  Still no swelling, so that's good!  My rings are still on!  I walk most days, especially if I am babysitting.  I will push the stroller for almost an hour.  And days I'm not babysitting, I am usually out running errands all day, so that's lots of walking around too.  I think that has helped a lot.  I haven't even had to use my heating pad for several weeks.  Basically, I'm feeling great...hope it continues!
Best Moment this week:  Hubby's birthday!!  He will be 27 and I'll be 25 when baby girl arrives.  We got the crib mattress ordered.  It should be in by Tuesday next week.  I got a nesting urge and started sorting baby laundry, but then decided not to wash it for a few more weeks, so it will be really fresh.  So now we have piles of little onesies and sleepers on the floor in her room but I don't mind because that stuff is way too cute!  I also got out all our cloth diapers.  I can't wait to wash them and get them ready for her as well!  I still need to do a post of cloth diapering and what we have and plan to use!  I may work on that this weekend.  I guess I need to work on what goes in the frames for the walls before doing the laundry.  I also decided I wouldn't mind going into labor a week late if it meant that she would be born on March 14, because that's Pi Day.  3.14.  We are nerds and appreciate the nerdiness of that day!  ha ha!  I have another check up tomorrow.  Nothing special (hopefully), probably just a weigh in, blood pressure check, doppler, and belly measurement.  Praying everything is still smooth sailing.

And just for fun, here's Nate's weekly bump picture:

Love Nate's bump picture...I probably should get Andre to do his :) I think I have hit the super frequent potty breaks as well (it probably doesn't help that I am drinking water like a camel). Keep drinking that milk too...its good for you!!!

Pi day sounds like a great plan!!!
