How far along? I have just finished my 33rd week of pregnancy. I seriously forgot how far along I was about 50 times this week. I still feel a lot of disbelief that I am actually pregnant--let alone getting ready to bring a sweet baby into this world! There's a reason you're pregnant for 40 weeks--you definitely need the time to wrap your mind around all of it!
Total weight gain: I am just below my starting pre-pregnancy weight.
Maternity clothes: Some of my shirts are starting to get a little bit short....and my jacket is REALLY tight, but I am not getting any new clothes these last few weeks. I still have plenty to wear though. :)
Sleep: I realized the super comfortable position I've found for sleeping is actually making my right hip hurt ALL.DAY.LONG. Walking is super uncomfortable. Now that I figured out what's causing the hip pain I'm hoping that after a couple of good nights rest in a different position will make the pain go away. I'm sad my awesome way of laying is hurting my hips, but I'm honestly so relieved I figured it out--I thought I'd be like this for the rest of my pregnancy! I still sleep like a rockstar though--not too much can interfere with my sleep. ;)
Best moment this week: My first baby shower, of course! I loved being surrounded by so many of my friends and family--that is just the best feeling. Rob and I also finally found a chair for our nursery! We have been looking and looking and finally found one that goes with the nursery and will be perfect for us. :)
Miss anything? I miss walking without hip pain, but I'm glad that will hopefully be a thing of the past soon!
Movement: Lots of movement!! Baby often gets the hiccups at nighttime and I love laying in bed feeling the little hiccups. I sometimes feel spoiled and guilty that I get to feel the baby so often--it's such an amazing thing to experience!
Food cravings: I haven't had a lot of cravings this week...although I did buy a bunch of hot tamales at the gas station this morning before work. I still am LOVING clementines, ice water, and orange juice. I find myself looking forward to a hot chocolate in the evening too--but that might be because the temperature is in the negatives!
Anything making you queasy or sick? I have been feeling kind of nauseated lately...smells are starting to get to me again, which is no fun.
Gender: Not finding out! I still think Little Bit is a boy, but there is a part of me that thinks LB could be a girl...I'd say I'm 80/20 on boy.
Labor signs: None and very thankful about this! Lots of BH contractions, but I know that is just my body practicing up for the real deal! I go for a checkup on Monday and I am hoping my doctor will check to see if my body's made any progress.
Symptoms: An enormous belly, a little hip pain, some nausea, some swelling, and feeling pretty tired. I feel like I'm back in my first trimester, but just have a big belly to go along with it!
Belly button in or out? It's still an innie! It neesd to flatten out some more so I can have an outtie by the time the baby's here!
Wedding rings on or off? They are still on my finger...but they are becoming increasingly difficult to take off in the evenings. I honestly should probably not wear them anymore, but I just can't stand going without them. One of my friends is only wearing her wedding band which is a nice compromise!
Happy or moody most of the time: I have been a little bit grumpier than I would've liked this past week. I was definitely happy with my shower and having a three day weekend, but I think my hip pain has been getting to me. :/
Looking forward to: I'm looking forward to my second baby shower this weekend! My SIL is graciously hosting one for us and I am so excited. My sister and two of my cousins are coming up to go with me and I am also really looking forward to hanging out with them! This weekend will consist of lots of baby organizing and putting together furniture as all of it is scheduled to be delivered this week. Our bedding should be in sometime next week so within a couple of weeks our nursery should be complete! I can't wait for that day! :)
