33 weeks

How far along? 33 weeks

Due Date: August 2, 2011

Total weight gain/loss: 18 pounds...at least I didn't gain anything this week!

Maternity clothes? Pretty much everything at this point and I may never return to regular pants since maternity pants are so comfortable!

Stretch Marks? Nada...I adore my BioOil!

Sleep:  Not too bad...only getting up 2-3 times per night these days.  I am sleeping for about 3 hour stretches, which seems amazing. 

Best moment this week:  I had many great moments this week.  I had my work baby shower and I'm always blown away by how sweet and generous all of my amazing co-workers are.  Along with all of the clothes, towels, pacifers, etc. they also got me my ENTIRE Chicco Travel System (carseat, base AND stroller) AND my video monitor!!  I mean, are you kidding me?  How amazing for a new mom to be surrounded by such love and generosity!  Also, my SIL Sarah picked up my crib for me and brought it over yesterday and helped me put it together.  Finally some furniture in the baby's room!!  I'm still waiting on the mattress to get here, but it should arrive on Thursday.  Here's a pic of the crib (sans mattress) with the quilt my sister made me: [pic coming soon]

Movement: Still tons of movement and ninja kicks and punches and hiccups.  But at work on Saturday I talked one of the MFM docs to scan me for fun and this baby girl is BREECH!!  UGH!  Stubborn baby!  Mommy says stand on your head!

Food cravings: Nothing in particular this week.  Still loving avocado, of course.

Food aversions: Chicken and eggs
Gender: Girl (if not, this little boy is gonna have one brightly colored room and a lot of dresses to wear)

Labor Signs:  Nothing new to report.  Still contracting a lot during the day, but nothing new.  Still taking Procardia 3-5 times per day.
Belly Button in or out? Still in, but getting so much more flat. 

What I miss: Walking without waddling and standing up and walking without feeling like I'm going to pee on myself all the time.

What I am looking forward to: My Pottery Barn piece being delivered sometime this week or early next week.  Also, looking forward to the mattress being delivered so maybe I can get ONE thing in that room ready.
Milestones: This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (heft a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark. She's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in her skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for her to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as her brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.
