33 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 33 Weeks (6 more weeks to go!)
(You can check out my 33 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

 Size of Baby: (According to babycenter.com) 33 weeks: Your baby is about the size of a pineapple, measuring 17-plus inches from head to heel and weighing a little over 4 pounds. Your baby is rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and her skeleton is hardening. 
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 29 pounds total. I had a Dr. appt. yesterday and finally asked what my total weight gain was. 

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes and growing out of some of them. :-( I am so ready to be back in normal clothes again.

Gender: Its a GIRL!! Our sweet Avery Rose.

Movement: Yes, she's moving around quite a bit, and I love it. Her movements are getting bigger and stronger too.

Food Cravings: No real cravings this week, just really thirsty as I've been this entire pregnancy.

What I miss: Just being able to do normal things without feeling tired or out of breath. I also miss being able to wear my wedding rings, which I haven't been able to wear for quite some time now. :-(

Sleep: Not great. I'm having to get up several times a night to use the restroom and just can't seem to get comfortable sometimes.

Symptoms: Just feeling very tired and huge. :-( I'm also having a few Braxton Hicks contractions and a few cramps in the evenings, (which my Dr. said not to worry about unless I have 4 or more in an hour, which I haven't).

Best Moment this week: My sweet Baby Shower that my family gave us over the weekend! It was so great and I can't thank everyone enough for all the hard work they put into it and all the wonderful gifts we receieved!! I will be doing a post later this week to tell you all about it. 
We also got the last piece of furniture in for the nursery. So Saturday, my dad came over after the shower and put the chest of drawers together. My mom and sister also helped get all the gifts that we got from the shower organized in her nursery and I got all of her clothes, socks and blankets washed and ready to go.

What I am looking forward to: Getting the last few decorations hung to complete the nursery and of course, meeting her on (or before) April 28th!! :-)
