Mommy Monday: 33 Weeks!

Not much new to report over here! This past week has been great - no major changes. I have been experiencing some sciatica and new aches and pains, and my feet are swollen and get red if I stand for too long! haha (SO FUN!!) But other than that, nothing new to report! Other than I feel HUGE and a bit like this cat:

 I got together with two of my best girlfriends and it was SO fun catching up with them! I also got to see my grandparents for dinner one night which was so nice!!

This week was the first week that I didn't have a doctor's appointment since I got put on bed rest at 20 weeks! It was so nice not having to go into the doctor and to just feel normal! haha Little boy has been kicking up a storm and wiggling all over the place. It's SO fun to feel him move and to WATCH him move - it's crazy to see little body parts move under my skin. I love feeling his kicks and movements so much! He is getting so big and strong!! 

So fun to see how big baby boy's hand is right now!!

So fun to see how big baby boy's hand is right now!!

Tomorrow I'll be 34 weeks pregnant - another milestone! Yippee! The baby is now about the length that he will be at birth - crazy! Now he is just continuing to put on weight and fill out a bit more, putting on about 1/2 lb per week!! Grow baby boy grow! :)

How far along: 33 weeks 6 days

Total weight gain/loss: I haven't weighed myself since last time since I didn't have a doctor's appointment at all this past week. But I feel GINORMOUS!! haha

Belly Button in or out? In on the bottom, out on the top. Super cute.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody. Happy. I'm an emotional wreck. haha

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, Sciatica, feeling like I pulled a muscle in my crotch...hahaha, achey, out of breath, swollen feet... fun stuff! ;)

Thanks for reading!! And thank you for all of the sweet messages, prayers, positive thoughts, well-wishes, etc... Baby boy is SO blessed to have so many people who care about him! And now we're basically in the clear - as in, if he is born now, he'll be just fine! But obviously, the longer he stays in the better, so hang in there little guy! :) Hopefully my body will behave and not go into preterm labor! Only three more weeks until this baby is full term! Yippee!!
