Bumpdate 2.0: 33 Weeks

Due Date: December 1, 2017

How far along?: 33 weeks

Gender: It's a BOY!

Name: Sterling Alan

Total weight gain:  ~30 lbs.

Stretch marks?: Thankfully none that I can see!

Symptoms: No new symptoms to speak of...just the third trimester hugeness. This belly is getting big and a bulky...

Maternity clothes?:  What else?!!? Even my large KU t-shirts that I sleep in are starting to get tight on the bump. I think it's about time to switch to Ryan's big t-shirts!

Sleep:  Soooooo tired...ALL.THE.TIME! I think I'm back to feeling how I felt {exhaustion wise} in the first trimester...maybe even more tired now than during those first 12 weeks. I'm so incredibly thankful the sickness isn't accompanying the tiredness this time around! I'm sleeping well for the most part...unless Huston wakes up in the night, which has been more frequent than usual as we continue the transition to his big boy bed. I'm still able to get comfy with the assistance of my Snoogle Pillow and a couple of other pillows supporting me {give me ALL the pillows!}, so I'm also grateful for that! Let's just extend the day a couple more hours so I can squeeze in a little more sleep....good idea???

Cravings:  Nothing really. To be honest, I haven't really had much of an appetite this past week. Of course I'm eating, but nothing really sounds I just go with whatever is easiest or most convenient. Trying to reduce sugar intake since the doctor suggested doing that after we found out my amniotic fluid was a bit on the high level.

Best Moment of the Week: Monday was Columbus Day, so Ryan and I were off work and Huston didn't have school. We had a fabulous family day together! We spent the morning and lunch at Preston Trail Farms pumpkin patch.

Another great moment of the week was Grammy coming down to spend the weekend with us. We can't thank her enough for coming to the rescue when this momma was sick and needing a little help and rest! She truly saved the day {weekend!}. We attended Huston's school picnic on Friday evening...and she even helped us check a few things off the list in preparation for "Baby Brudder's" arrival!  Thank you, Grammy...

Mood: I think it might be possible that I've been a bit cranky this past week. It seems like little things are aggravating me more than usual, and I'm letting them get to me. I don't really realize any of this until well after the fact...but I try to be quick to apologize for my moody behavior.

Nursery: Progress...we're making progress! All of Huston's decor is now off the wall and moved upstairs to his "big boy room." We still need to clean out the closet and dresser drawers...but this momma is a little lazy, and it seems so much easier to dress him/change him downstairs where we spend most of our time! Perhaps we'll get to that this weekend! I received an email that his bedding was complete and had shipped, so I'm very excited for that to arrive in a couple of days!

Movement: His movements can't be missed these days. Huston felt him kick the other night when I was holding him on top of the big 'ole baby bump. He looked at me kind of funny and said, "What that, Momma?!!?"

Wedding Rings:  On.

Belly Button: In.

Looking Forward To: Seeing our baby boy via sonogram in a couple of weeks. Since my level of amniotic fluid was a little on the high side, we're doing another sono check at our 35-week OB appointment. Since Dr. Jacoby didn't seem to be concerned about the amniotic fluid {just wanted to monitor it}, I'm definitely not complaining about another opportunity to see the little guy on the screen before he makes his entrance into the world!
