33 Week Update!

Whoo terrible picture this week!

How far along? 33 weeks

How big is baby?  4 pounds/17 inches!  About the weight of a pineapple.
Weight gain? 31lbs

Symptoms? Exhaustion.  I cannot keep my eyes open!  Still some rib pain. Indigestion and heart burn this week.  Finger swelling.  My fingers are looking a little chubby and I cannot wear my rings depending on the time of day and what I've been doing.

Sleep?  Ok this week.  Still under my ribs on my left side, so I'm pretty limited to my right side and that's about it. 

Food cravings? Love ice (so weird) and popsicles/freeze-pops

Movement? All over.  He is definitely rolling around in there a ton.

Gender?  It's a boy! 

Clothes?  Maternity Pants and maternity tops and some regular cardigans. 

What I am looking forward to? I've finished quilting his play quilt and I'm hoping to finish the binding today.  I bought some fabric to make some other blankets and burp-clothes as gifts for others who are having babies, so I'm hoping to get those done too.

What am I missing? We went to a wedding reception with an open bar on Saturday and boy did I miss wine!  It was torture to watch him pour all of those glasses, mmmmm wine.  :-)

Milestones? He's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

Other? We took our pictures last week.  She said that it would be about 2 weeks, so still 1 more week to go before we get to see them.  Today at our childbirth and childcare class we get to tour the women's center, which I am definitely looking forward to (though not the video they're going to show).

My protector, Miss Maya!


  1. I'm definitely with you on the exhaustion. I feel like I need a nap by the time I shower and get ready to go somewhere! :)

  2. You are looking fantastic! As always.


Comments make me smile!

Have a wonderful day!
