Week 33 Bump Update!

 
 
(Picture taken at 33 weeks, 1 day)
 
How far along?  33 weeks and 2 days!   47 days to go!
 
How big is baby?  Approximately 19-22 inches and getting closer to 5 lbs....about the size of a pineapple! 
 
Total weight gain/loss?  As of Monday 3/25, +14 lbs.  I gained 3 lbs in the past 2 weeks...eeek!  
 
Maternity Clothes?  That is all I can wear.  
 
Stretch Marks?  Still on my sides and boobs.  Boo.   
 
Sleep?   If I don't take Tylenol PM, I don't sleep :(  So, as much as I hate taking it, I take it almost every night.  My doctor (and the Internet) has assured me it is ok.  Taking a warm bath before bed helps me relax but not get to sleep.  Still waking up 4-5 times a night to use the bathroom and due to the back/tailbone/hip pain I can't get comfortable.     
 
Miss anything?  Not being in pain!!  And I can't wait to walk normal again :)    
 
Movement?  So much!  I am learning his sleep patterns too.  I know once I wake up in the morning and my husband and I start talking, he will wake up....happens every day!   He is getting the hiccups a lot more these days too....he has them right now as I type this :)       
 
Food Cravings?  Ice, Ice, Ice.... I stop by Sonic ALL.THE.TIME for a huge cup of their ice and I would get to our baby class 20 minutes early each week just so I could go by the cafeteria and get a cup of ice (hospital ice is just like Sonic ice!) before they closed.    I could eat Mac & Cheese and strawberries for every meal too. 
 
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Red meat = gross.
 
Have you started to show yet?  My belly is gigantic. Yesterday I was looking at myself in the mirror and I can definitely tell that baby and I went thru a growth spurt in the past week.  I know it is going to happen but I just can't imagine getting any bigger.        
 
Gender?  Baby boy!  CCC :) 
 
Labor Signs?  Just braxton hicks when I stand too long or do too much.   
 
Belly Button in or out?  Almost completely flat.
 
Mood?  It's been a rough few days....I am in a lot of pain and having a hard time moving around and getting things done so that has been a little discouraging.  BUT I am so happy that we have just 6-7 weeks left....there is a light at the end of the tunnel!   
 
Symptoms?  
The newest....restless legs and arms.  I was so thankful that I made it thru this whole pregnancy without having to deal with that but that changed this week!  When I try to sleep or if I sit still too long, my legs and hands start to get antsy and restless.  Still having the back and tailbone pain but it got a lot worse the past few days.  I may have to start going to the chiro more than once a week.    
 
Wedding rings still on?  Yes, still on!  I guess since I have every other symptom in the world, God decided to give me a break and not give me any swelling ;)  YET, at least....        
 
Best moments of the week? 
We had our Couples Shower in Dallas over the weekend!  We had a fun weekend with our Dallas friends and we got some great gifts :)  
We also finished our 4 week childbirth class!  We both feel much more prepared for what is too come. 
 
 
Looking forward to?
The weekend!  My husband has 3 days off and we have a full day reserved for putting together all the baby equipment, working in the nursery and finishing a couple house projects.  Also looking forward to celebrating Easter with family on Sunday and a friend's wedding on Saturday!
