33 Weeks Pregnant!

How far along: 33 weeks and 4 days!!!

Baby’s size: He’s the size of a durian and around 4.5 pounds

Gender: Boy!!

Total weight gain: About 23 lbs but it’s been a few days since I’ve weighed in.

Stretch marks: None on the belly yet! A few on both of my sides/hips so far.

Sleep: I’ve been sleeping pretty well the past few weeks (minus the last couple of nights) which is crazy since I’m more uncomfy than usual throughout the day. Not complaining one bit, though! I’’ve also been having some fun dreams about our baby and it makes me even more anxious to meet him!!

What I’m wearing: I still haven’t gotten too many maternity clothes since I only have 6.5 weeks left! This outfit- Gap Maternity jeans, a comfy tunic I got from the Classy Closet, loft scarf and booties from Antrho.

Best moment of this week: We went out and bought a few baby items! Other than that we didn’t have much going on this week… like at all. Hanging out with Thad and my pups is always the best, though.

Miss anything?: I did crave sushi like crazy while I watched Thad eat it the other day (so rude)…it’ll be one of my first postpartum meals!

Movement: Lots and so much fun to watch/feel! My favorite thing ever.

Foods I’m loving: Still loving honey bunches of oats for breakfast. I love halos, too. I’ve had a huge sweet tooth the past couple of months and it’s been so so hard to resist! I’ve also been OBSESSED over the hot & sour soup from Riso Noodle House and plan on picking some up to have on hand at my next doctor appointment haha.

How are you feeling?: Still feeling great! I am starting to have a hard time bending over and doing things like putting shoes on and getting up from the couch.

Symptoms: Acid reflux at night and some headaches.

Wedding rings on or off: On.

How’s your mood: Happy and excited in general!! I did get some sad news that I probably won’t be able to go home for Christmas :(. My doctor said no way and I had a hormonal pregnancy crying fest for the better part of a day. That’s had me down this week, but I’ve just been focusing on our baby boy’s arrival!

Baby buys: Thad and I finally got some exciting things this weekend (well, exciting to me!!). I ordered a couple of cute outfits on Gap (they were 40% off!) and we got things like a diaper pail, Mamaroo (pretty excited about this one) and a changing pad… ha I know they don’t sound that exciting, but for me it was like Christmas. We are slowly marking things off our list and it feels amazing!

I’m excited about:

-Still excited about the nursery even though all I’ve done is made it look worse. I went through all our baby shower gifts and it looks like a bomb went off in there right now…yikes!

-Umm…having this baby! I am getting so excited and anxious for delivery day!
