33 Weeks

Although this week has been busy I definitely haven't slacked on the blog. Only 1 day late!!

We have lots of house stuff coming together this week - sort of, we're getting things organized (finally) and getting the nursery put together! Wahoo!

How far along? 33w1d
How big is baby? This week baby is the size of a Durian. I have no idea what that is. It appears to be a pointy item.
Total weigh gain? Oh I think about 23 pounds now, if I'm remembering correctly from my doctor's visit last week.
Maternity clothes? Yep, but not today. I went for the sweatshirt look. 
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep? I'm still sleeping well. I'm starting to wonder if losing sleep while pregnant is really a thing or if I'm just going to be lucky enough to miss that part?
Best moment this week? We finally got the nursery painted. Matt says he thinks it needs another coat though, I'm not a painter so we'll just go with what he says.
Miss anything? I miss being able to lean forward without a belly in the way.
Movement? She is definitely letting me know she's in there. I read last night that when your stomach takes on that weird shape it's a braxton hicks contraction. I don't know if that's every time it takes on the funny shape... if so I have a lot of BH. I thought it was just her pushing out or moving at a weird angle.
Food cravings? No cravings to speak of, although today seems like a good day for chili so I wish I had thought of that before now and had it working so it'd be done in time for dinner!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender? Baby girl!
Labor signs? Nope - My doctor asks me every time I see her if I'm having contractions. I don't know what they feel like. So I say no. This leads me to believe I'm going to be that girl who doesn't know she's in labor and then is all in a rush to get to the hospital for that epidural! :)
Symptoms? Just peeing. All. The. Time. Heartburn on occasion too.
Belly button in, or out? It's rare for the belly button to be in anymore.
Wedding rings on or off? On though I can feel my hands swellings sometimes during the day now. Who knew it would hurt?
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy!
Looking forward to? SIL is finding out what she's having tomorrow! I hope she doesn't make me wait too long before she decides to start telling people! The suspense is killing me! Is Sadie going to have a best friend to play dress up with, or will she have a best bud to play in the dirt and mud with?!? I'm looking forward to my ultrasound in 15 days. It's so insane to think that we have 48 days left to go and by the time that ultrasound rolls around we'll have like 33 days left!! I also chose a pedi (office) and we're going to a "Get to Know You" at the office on 10/11 and I'm glad I can finally cross that off my list as well!

It looks so much better!


  1. The nursery looks great! I still can't believe you didn't want to keep that blinding yellow color! ;)
