Bumpdate: 33 Weeks

Due Date: August 5, 2015

How far along?: 33 weeks, 6 days

Gender: It's a BOY!

Name: Huston Robert  {more details here}

Total weight gain:  The scale said I've lost 0.5 pounds in the past week. Although I'm 100% certain it's due to the clothes I was/wasn't wearing, I'm still gonna believe the scale. All in all, I'm up about 28 pounds in total.

Stretch marks?: Those tiny, faint lines I've been seeing on both of my sides seem to be fading. Is that possible? Whatever...I'm not questioning it! I'm still mixing the Bio-Oil and St. Ives lotion and lathering it on every night. 

Symptoms: I've had some pretty bad pain in my lower back/right hip. I've seen a chiropractor twice now, and it really seems to help.  He says my hips are out of place and my right hip muscle is too weak to deal with the added weight from the baby bump, thus the pain. Soooo...I'm doing stretches daily to strengthen the muscle and will continue to see the chiropractor for now.  

Maternity clothes?:  24/7...and it's getting to be that I'm wearing the same pieces on a more frequent basis. Comfort seems to me trumping style a bit these days...just a bit though, not all the time quite yet!

Sleep:  My OB told me to see a chiropractor and take Tylenol to reduce the pain in my lower back/hip, so I've been taking Tylenol PM at night...which really seems to help me get some restful sleep. I'm getting up two to three times per night to go to the bathroom, but I don't have any trouble falling back asleep after I return to bed. Still sleeping in whichever room I find to be the coldest {we're beyond cool...it's pretty much full-blown COLD in our house at night nowadays}. 

Cravings:  Watermelon, pineapple, cantaloupe...maybe just fruit in general! I'm not nearly as hungry as I once was, and I find myself eating much smaller portions. I guess this little guy is taking up most of the room in there, so I've somewhat adjusted to smaller, more frequent meals and snacks.

Best Moment of the Week: Father's Day! Celebrating this guy and all he's already done to show that he is going to be a truly A-MAZ-ing daddy to our little boy. I know I'm incredibly lucky to be sharing my life with this great man, and I cannot wait to see him with our son. Here's to the first of many, many Father's Day celebrations...

A book, a bag and a cocktail to celebrate the daddy-to-be.

Workouts: Exercise has pretty much been non-existent since my hip has been in so much pain. After seeing the chiropractor yesterday, I felt so much better that I decided to take Lily for a short walk...the hip didn't like that so much! 

Mood: I feel like I've been pretty even-tempered over the past week...I guess I'm probably not the one that should be answering this question though. I'm not sure how Ryan and/or my coworkers would feel...  We'll just leave this one up in the air.

Nursery: Progress...we're making lots of progress! We've got the baskets for the pegboard that hangs above the changing table. The glider/recliner is officially in our possession. Ryan sanded and stained four wooden crates that we're going to put together to hold some books and toys. To make a long story short: we've checked quite a few things off the to-do list for the nursery...now we just need to get it organized!

Movement: His movements can't be missed these days. I think he's running out of room in there, so I feel every little movement...and most can be seen from the outside. Still no hiccups though.

Wedding Rings:  On.

Belly Button: In.

Looking Forward To: Our final baby shower is this weekend {in Dallas}, and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing lots of friends.
