33 Weeks Pregnant | 3rd Trimester


How far along? 33 weeks & 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: 3 lbs lost at my doctors appt on 11/20
Maternity clothes? Yes. I can't wait to wear normal clothes. My winter hoodies & coat is a little snug.  
Stretch marks? Had them before pregnancy but no new ones.
Food cravings: Pumpkin pie, ice cream, pho, queso dip, & jerky
Best moment this week: Thanksgiving. I loved seeing my aunt & uncle. Being with family makes having a baby so much more real. That's all they talk about. I stuffed myself that day. Many days after as well.
Miss Anything? Moving a little faster than a turtles pace. I am just about done being pregnant now.
Movement: Yes. It has lessened. I heard that was normal. I can tell it's sleeping hours now.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Brushing my teeth is becoming a chore. I throw up every morning. I brush them before breakfast. I used to brush them after but I can't or I will just lose my breakfast.
Have you started to show yet: Yes.
Gender: Unknown
Labor Signs: Braxton hicks
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On and off after work. 
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy. excited. nervous.
Looking forward to: Maternity leave. :) oh & Christmas.
Doctor's appointment: I saw my nurse practioner instead of my regular OB because I have been picking up full time hours at work. I didn't have any questions for her which I felt bad because at 33 weeks you'd think I'd have a ton of questions but I don't. Only for my doctor. I will see her this week. I lost 3 pounds before Thanksgiving ;) & everything else was normal.
Randoms: Pelvic pain, I can't get comfortable anymore to sleep. It feels like the baby is laying right on my lungs. I get full so fast but then merly 1 hour later I am starving. I have to sit in the recliner to get comfortable. I have been leaking colostrum since week 29. Only from the left boob. It's so strange. I wake up to a sticky shirt. Happens almost nightly. Let's see here what else can I bitch about ahaha. I swear pregnancy is a beautiful thing. But somethings us women have to put up with. I sweat like a hog  & breathe like a fat kid.

Best moment this week: My husband coming home for the weekend. It always puts a smile on my face to see him. He lites up every time he sees my belly. It makes me happy.
Miss Anything? Sushi. Brushing my teeth without throwing up. Eating normal amounts of food.
