Week 33

I'm almost 2 weeks behind again.. but my computer is still out of commission and I'm overwhelmed trying to wrap things up for my maternity leave and in my home to prepare for baby! I hope to be able to post more frequently soon!
 
Week 33- September 30th-October 6th
 
Due Date: November 18, 2011

How Big is Baby: The baby is the size of a honeydew melon.

Symptoms: I'm still feeling pretty good physically but I'm starting to get more anxious about leaving work (and four schools with a huge testing/counseling load) for 14ish weeks.  I know that i'll have a sub, but I'm still trying to wrap a lot of things up.  Other than that, my feet are ridiculously swollen (although my doc denies that they are even remotely bad compared to some of the stuff he sees) but they are bad to me!  My shoes DO NOT fit anymore and I'm wearing flip flops on the daily!

Cravings: Halloween candy!

Sleep: Sleep has been a dream this week (aside from the frequent pee breaks). However, despite getting at least 8 hours a night I'm exhausted during the day. I think it has to do with the fact that my sleep is interrupted so frequently.

I Can't Live Without: Putting my feet up and foot massages (thanks hubs)

I Miss: Wearing my cute fall clothing!  I kind of miss alcohol but I'm thrilled about the fact that I get to drink on Thanksgiving AND on Christmas. I have a feeling that I will need it. Ha.

I am Looking Forward to: November. We're in the home stretch now!

Milestones: We're marking things off of our checklists and we're almost ready for baby! We've accomplished SO much in the last few weekends.  Also, although I knew he was head down at 28 weeks, the doctor confirmed that he is still head down and in position in my pelvis. 

Awkward Moments: Nothing this week.. I've heard that I'm adorable and cute like 10 times.  Now THAT is what I like to hear! =)

Exercise: Yoga and moving from the couch to the chair.  I'm going to try to keep doing yoga all the way to the end. 

Diet: Eh, I'm in the last few weeks and I just don't care anymore!

Movement: He doesn't move as much anymore, but when he moves my entire stomach shifts right along with him.

Gender: It's a boy! Grayson Patrick!

You ARE adorable!

Can you believe you're having a baby next month!? Time flies!

I remember the swollen feet. All I could wear were certain paris of flip flops. Thankfully I was big and swollen in the spring when it was warm. Can you imagine being like that in the dead of winter?

I was wondering how you were doing! Glad you're still hanging in there!

This is so exciting! I like hearing that at 33 weeks you're still able to sleep, I'm almost more nervous about that than any other part of pregnancy!
