Baby Gardner- 33 weeks

How far along? 33 weeks
Total weight gain.  Down 3lbs this week(dr said this is normal) so a total of 20 lbs total
Baby Development.  Measuring about 17 inches long, he weighs around 5lbs, from this week until two weeks before birth, he will gain about a half-pound of weight every week.
Maternity Clothes? Still just using a few pairs of maternity pants, mixed with old tops and old dresses and skirts-gotta love warm weather!!
Stretch Marks? Still clear and still using belly butter like it's my job
Sleep? No problems here, one bathroom break a night and a nice body pillow is all I need
Best Moment of the week? Had my breast feeding class and it gave me so much more confidence.
Symptoms?  Lots of Braxton Hicks and TONS of pressure on my diaphragm. It gets uncomfortable sitting at 90 degrees for too long(ie- 2 1/2 hr movie and only a small popcorn to keep my occupied=NO BUENO)
Food cravings?  Strawberries, pineapple, yogurt and granola and my coconut cashew and apple pie protein bars. I know- boring and too healthy, what can I say I am growing a little muscle head in there!
Miss anything? Not peeing every hour.
Movement?Still moving like crazy. Gets the hiccups a ton, especially at night
Gender ? Little baby boy
Belly Button in or out? Still in!!!
Goals for upcoming week?  Hopefully get my wall decor in the mail and finish up the nursery. Also decide how I am going to organize this little guys cloths, he has so many.
Looking Forward to?  Finally nice weather has found its way to Omaha!! Lots of dog walks, getting my flower pots looking good, and hopefully meeting our potential pediatrician this week!
Thoughts? Even though I am so excited to meet my little peanut, this is going so fast. How am I 8 1/2 months pregnant with a 5 lb baby inside me-i know. I feel ready, but I am so nervous that he is going to be here early. With my family 6 hours away, I need him to stay in there until our big day. Until that day gets here, I am going to continue to be so thankful for this amazing experience ( i know I sound like a broken record- but I am so grateful). I love you baby G!!
