33 weeks pregnant!

Another week (more like week and a half) down.
Where is the time going?
I still have SO many things that I need to get done!

Our vacation in Minnesota to visit my family was a lot of fun. I survived the 12 hour drive no problemo! Yeah I had a little swelling but nothing to complain about.
And I only had to stop to pee like 4-5 times each way. 
I think I should get some sort of trophy. Just sayin'.
Here are some photos from our trip:
Of course I had to stop by and see my cows!
Hubby and I with my sister, her husband and their day old baby girl.
Jimmy taking his turn holding Reagan. This makes me excited for our baby girl to be born. He is going to be such a great dad!
My sister and I holding our baby girls! They will be less than 2 months apart:)

And here I am at 33 weeks!
Like my stripey shirt? I just got it at Plato's Closet for $6! It's supposedly a dress...but not for a pregnant lady! lol

How far along? 33 weeks. I have been thinking a lot this week about how at the beginning of my pregnancy, 33 weeks seemed like SO far away. Now here I am...getting fatter by the day:)

Ya know, only when you are pregnant is your hubby allowed to come home from work and say "wow babe, your belly has gotten a lot bigger!"

Movement? Still lots of hiccups and kicking around. Sometimes I'm worried she has a friend in there playing! But no, there's just one!

Weight Gain: 17 pounds

Maternity Clothes: I haven't been buying any more maternity stuff. Just seems so close to the end and I hate to spend the money! My favorite thing to wear is non maternity sweaters/sweater dresses. Although the dresses really aren't long enough anymore to be a dress!

Best Moment of my week: Meeting my new niece Reagan by far! She is so tiny and sweet! I am so very happy that I was able to see her and hold her. She is the first one out of my neices/nephews that I was home to visit in the hospital! You should feel special Reagan;)

Worst moment of my week: Being tired. Trips to MN always tire me out, so it feels like it has taken the past few days for me to recover!

Sleep: I've been sleeping great...except for here and there when I have to get up to use the bathroom of course!

Miss Anything: I miss having the energy and ability to get things done like I used to. I feel exhausted after doing the simplest things!

Cravings: Sweet things and especially chocolate. While I was grocery shopping yesterday, I put a dark chocolate bar in the cart and walked around with it the whole time (fully intending on buying it) and at the last minute, I realized I would probably eat the whole thing and it wasn't a good idea. Yes I put it back! Be proud!

Aversions: They don't sound bad, but every time I eat anything with peppers and onions in it I get real nauseous and just feel horrible. 

Gender: Still a girl! I have the doctor check every time to make sure lol. You can read about her gender reveal party here!

Belly Button: It's still popped out!

Labor Signs: Yes, too many! Some evenings I get them pretty close together. I absolutely do not want to go to the ER though so I make myself sit down and relax till they go away.

Other Symptoms: A few stretch marks have decided to move in despite how often I coat up with belly butter! I'm not too pleased, but I realize that's part of growing a human life inside of me! I still have swelling, random back pain, and I think I may be going blind too! Just kidding about the last one, but I have noticed my vision is much more blurry lately which I've heard can happen!

Mood: Tired still and looking forward to the weekend. I think we are getting a crib, dresser and changing table! Eeeek! So exciting!!

Looking Forward: See above answer. I'm also looking forward to Thanksgiving which is in just a couple weeks! I'm going to attempt some black Friday shopping as well. I have never missed a year and I will find a wheel chair or power scooter somewhere if I can't use my own two feet! 

Thanks for following along with my preggo updates and for all your awesome suggestions, tips, and comments! They are always welcome!
 I can't believe there are only a few weeks left. It's bittersweet because although I know I will miss being pregnant and feeling my sweet baby kick I am going to love love love holding her and experiencing life with her even more. Then we will have baby sweet pea updates! I can't wait!

  4. Glad you were able to have that awesome visit with family and only experience minor difficulties. Kaleigh is sure blessed to have parents like you two that already love her so much and your enthusiasm is wonderful to read. I am a grand dad of 65 in NC and have 2 grandsons 6 & 4 and a grand daughter 20. Take care and thanks for allowing us to tag along.

  11. I remember holding some newborn babies at church when I was pregnant - it makes your arms ache to hold your little one doesn't it?
