33 Weeks 1 day

Pin It!

How Far Along: 33 Weeks (7 Weeks left to go!)
Size of the Baby: Baby girl is the size of a honeydew melon (about 4.5 pounds and 19 inches)
Stretch marks: Not yet - but I've also been told that your stomach grows the most at the very end - so it's possible they are still in my future.
Weight gain: 30 pounds
Sleep: It is still interrupted a few times a night to pee, and then ten or more times to switch sides - which takes considerable effort now. Otherwise, I'm good :-)
Best Moment of the Week: I had all of last week off for the Thanksgiving holiday and it was heaven! I got to sleep in, take it easy and finish so many errands. I noticed that my feet weren't as swollen and my back got a break too. Sitting confined to my work chair is torture! Movement: I'm pretty sure she can now reach my ribs. Out of nowhere I will feel like my ribs are expanding and it's not very comfortable. She's been pretty good about moving when I push back on my stomach. I also think her head is now firmly resting on my bladder - I pee a million times a day! Last night I watched my stomach move like there was an alien inside haha.
Gender: GIRL! Although I had a dream that I went in for an ultrasound and they saw testicles. Now I'm paranoid I am actually having a boy.
Belly Button in or out: In...wondering if it will pop sometime soon?
Anything making you queasy or sick: When I sit for too long of a period my stomach feels too scrunched, like I can't breathe, or like I ate too much.
Labor Signs: No
Wedding ring on or off: Off! I'm so crushed. My fingers are just too swollen. I tried to take them off a couple of days ago and could not get them to budge. Brandon made me soak my hand in a bowl of freezing water, and we tried liquid soap and nothing would work. I waited a day, and then we tried again and managed to get it off - but my finger is still sore. I guess I can do without it for 7 more weeks :-(
What I miss: Lately I have wanted to sleep on my stomach so badly. I also miss wearing cute heels and wedges. The only thing I can wear are flip flops :-(
What I am looking forward to: Meeting her! I know she still needs to cook for awhile, but we're getting so excited to see her face for the first time. I really, really want to do an elective 3D ultrasound to see what she looks like. Brandon thinks I'm impatient...and I am!
Nursery: Just trying to get everything organized after her shower! I promise I'll share pics soon.
Emotions: I've been a little more emotional lately. I cried the night before my shower because the dress I had planned to wear (that I had tried on a few weeks before) didn't fit very cute anymore - a ridiculous reason to cry! I just feel so large. I don't like seeing my puffy face, and enormous feet. I want to have a waist again, and wear cute clothes! But don't get me wrong, it is ALL worth it. :-)

I miss my old body too! Just the idea of a flat stomach can bring me to tears! Her nursery is looking great!

Your shower was so cute!!!

A few of my friends have dealt with the ring issue of them put her ring on a long necklace and wore it like that and another bought a cheap ring in a bigger size and wore that.

So close!

Love the name Avery too! :)

I bought a cheapy ring from Walmart to tide me over & it makes me feel better! although I really miss my wedding ring :/ I am so in the same place as you, its funny reading this because I agree with all of it! Also, I had a dream that we had the baby and it was a girl but that it was totally normal, when I woke up, I was like "wait WHAT?!" then I was nervous to paint the nursery haha! Hopefully we both have what we are preparing for ;) And on the emotions... it is all SO WORTH IT but it's hard getting so big huh? I'm having the same pity party over here if that's any consolation :) hang in there girly.. we're almost there!

i think it is totally normal to feel like that, i felt like that too and my patience was none existent by the end. she will be here sooner than you think though and when she is in your arms it is the most amazing feeling ever :)

I can only think of 2 places near exactly where I live that does banner-towing, and
also both are unpaid jobs. Pilots do it just for the hours.
Getting your 1500 hours there would definitely probably take 2-3 years.
Here is my site - large vinyl banner
