33 Week Survey

How far along? 33 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: +1.5 lbs. 32.5 lbs. total
How big is baby? Supposed to be about 4 lbs, and 17 inches long.
Maternity clothes? Mostly. They are SO much more comfy.
Sleep: Pretty good, but my hips hurt and wake up to use the bathroom a couple times, you know, the usual. Still waking up on my back a lot...
Best moment this week: Having my shower with my side of the family. Still have to do a post about that, I am REALLY behind right now.
Movement: All the time. Still thinking he is head down since I feel his hiccups by my pelvis. Stay that way pleassssssse baby! :)
Food cravings: Juice, fresh fruit, especially grapes, ice cream. Nothing too new here!
Gender: Little man
Labor Signs: Not sure, possibly having some braxton hicks, but not sure.
Belly Button in or out? Getting less flat...
Stretchmarks? Just like a tiny one on my boob. None at all my stomach! I am using Organic Palmer's Cocoa Butter cream in the morning and this "Beautiful Belly Balm" at night that I got at our local health food store.
How are you feeling? Excited for the next couple of weekends.
What I am looking forward to: Jesse and Marideth's wedding!
What I miss: Not being able to sleep on my back and stomach. Not being swollen, and my hand feeling normal.
Weekly Wisdom: Drink tons of water!
Milestones: I think I might have had some braxton hicks.

Yes I know, I look obnoxiously tan. I had just had a spray tan for the wedding!

Notice how my belly is noticeably whiter....I didn't let her spray my stomach.

How your baby's growing:

This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. 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. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

The spray tan looks good. You can really see the difference with the belly pic. Too cute.

I think the tan looks great! And I'm loving your glasses. I didn't know you wore them.

Thanks ladies! Rachel, my glasses are Kate Spade....I LOVE them so much! Ever since I have needed them I always buy cheap frames that are like $50 because you can find decent ones now and get away with it, but last year I wanted to invest in a little nicer of a pair, and I am so happy that I did.
