33 Weeks!

How Far Along: 33 Weeks.

Size of baby: Honeydew.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 15 pounds. So much for a modest gain, right? Yikes! Time to lay off the sweets!

Maternity Clothes: This answer hasn't changed much from last week. Bottoms, yes, tops, both. I'd much rather lat around in my underwear; it's too hot!

Gender: A beloved son!

Movement: I love when he moves because my paranoia requires the reassurance he is OK. But my stomach and pelvis hurt, every day. The Braxton Hicks contractions were literally not happening at all and then yesterday they started with a freaking vengeance! This reaffirms for me I would've sucked at a vaginal delivery. Ugh!

Sleep: My bathroom breaks are up to a minimum of two so there isn't much uninterrupted sleep.

What I miss: Being able to sand up without a pain shooting through my pelvis.

Cravings: Cupcakes. Gee, I guess we all know where the weight gain is coming from!

Symptoms: My entire "trunk" hurts.

Best Moment this week: There were two things: 1. A healthy check up during my NST and ultrasound. Tomorrow I need to remember to ask the tech's best guess at baby's weight. I know it is not always accurate but I'm always curious. I don't bother to ask which percentile his measurements are in. 2. Rob and I were at the gym swimming laps. I half-jokingly told Rob he should try running the shallow end of the lane with my on his back to weight him down, and to my surprise he said to "jump on!" I did and we must've been the funniest sight.


  1. I think it is funny that you think 15lbs isn't modest... I looked at that number, and the first thing I thought was, "good for her!". I'm already at +36lbs myself... oops!

  2. @Laura, well, I didn't start off petite to begin with like you did! I have to be reallllly careful! Your figure was terrific to start!
