33 Weeks

 Orginally written 04/02:

There are a few events left in this pregnancy (a wedding and some baby sales and C is running a half marathon this weekend) but we had Addy's party on Saturday and I'm glad that we won't be hosting any more of them.  I'm pretty sure she had a really good time and it was great to have everyone over, but I was exhausted after that.

The nursery is back together!  I'm so happy about that!  We just need to hang some things on the walls and I need to paint her letters and we'll be all set!  We should probably pick up some newborn size diapers to have on hand but we're in good shape.  Oh, and I need to take apart the car seat and wash it.

We've still got 7 weeks to go (obviously) so we won't be packing a bag or anything until the beginning of May.  But that's not that far away when you think about it.  So crazy that we're getting so close!

How far along?:  33 weeks
Total weight gain/loss:  Oh my gosh.  Ok, I promised myself I would always be honest, so on Friday I was +7 pounds!  Now, I've been weighing myself since then and I've been consistently 2-3lbs under that so I'm blaming water weight for half of it.  We ate out more than usual last week and I think I had so much salt in me.  Taking off 3 lbs for water, I'm up 22lbs for the whole pregnancy.  I see no reason I won't hit the 30lb mark.
The Bump:  I still feel huge but occasionally I see other pregnant people and remind myself that we still have a ways to go.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to:  I'm excited to officially have the nursery done.  We never did a "nursery" with Addy so it's exciting!
Maternity Clothes:  Yup, I'm in them.  Pretty much all the time except for sweats.
Symptoms: Heartburn, fatigue and now hip/sciatic pain that comes and goes.  Sometimes it's so bad I'm liping.
Belly Button in or out?:  In. I don't see this changing.
Food Cravings/Aversions: Ice cream.  It's one pregnancy sterotype that's absolutely true.
What I miss:  Walking without pain.  Being able to do simple tasks like carry a laundry basket.
Milestones:  Silly ones but the nursery being put back together and pre-registering for the hospital.

  1. Check on the car seat thing, but I thought I read somewhere that you're not actually supposed to wash them with any thing other than water. I think it was something about it removed the "fire-proofing" that the fabric had.

    I had the limping pain with Danni! It was so horrible! I had to walk up 3 flights of stairs to my classroom... a couple of my co-workers were wondering if I was going to make it! lol I ended up staying home from work that week before she was born, because it got so bad I could hardly move! :( I hope yours doesn't get that bad.
