33 weeks down - 6 more (or less) to go!

How Far Along? 33 weeks, 4 days - 45 days to go! (holy crap!!)
Size? pineapple, 19 inches - and she was measuring at 5 pounds at the doctor last week! US tech said we had a big baby girl on our hands! :) This pic doesn't show it as well as in person....but this belly is poking out!!! :) A lot!
Maternity Clothes? nothing new - I am pretty much over clothes at this point - maxi dresses are my new BFF!
Weight Gain? 26 pounds! Eek! I was hoping to stay at 30 by the end of all of this but it looks like we will be a little over...oh well, as long as my angel healthy!! :)
Stretch Marks? None yet, still crossing my fingers and lathering up! I am so over that smell!
Gender? Baby Girl!! Elise Kelly!
Sleep? I guess she is preparing me for her arrival because I am going on very very little. It's hard to get to sleep and once I do...I then have to get up and go to the bathroom...and then it's pretty much over. 
Movement? Still as active as she can be! And I never ever tire of it! :) 
Food Cravings? I'm liking cinnamon stuff lately...odd huh? Like cinnamon french toast sticks for breakfast, these uuuuh-mazing cinnamon cream cheese things from my shower on Saturday (oh what I would give for some right now!), apple cinnamon crisp (I found some super yummy ones at only 140 calories each, sweeeet!).
Anything making you queasy or sick? nope! :)
Labor signs? nothing yet!
Belly button in or out? okay, it isn't poking out...but it's not in either...
Wedding rings, on or off? I am sad to report that they are off :(. I am wearing one of the bands, but the other and my engagement ring are very very tight. It was really hard to get them off on Saturday. And then I heard a horror story of one my friends getting hers stuck  and going to the fire station to get them cut off at 3:30 in the morning. The scared me enough to not force them back on...but I am very sad about this. 
What I Miss? sleep, bending over, wine - oh my sweet sweet wine! 
Symptoms? heartburn, exhaustion, lots of anxiety, pain in the ribs, leg cramps, swelling of the hands and feet (bleh!), emotional - man I sound like a happy lady don't I?!?!?! :) I really am though - I will take all of this and then some as long as little E is baking away in there! :)
Happy or Moody? I am oh so happy! Okay, I lie...I am a but cranky.... :)
Best Moment of the Week? my awesome and fabulous shower on Saturday! Pics to come!!
Looking forward to....seeing the bed linens that my awesome and amazing Grandma has been working so hard on!

Omg you definitely don't wanna chance it on your rings! I've always wondered what you do if they're stuck, guess you go to the fire station?! Lol. I haven't had to take mine off, but I'd imagine with the heat it won't be long..

hahah I like that you are being totally honest. It's okay if you are a bit cranky. I can only imagine how I'd be! :) You are looking amazing. Have fun at the shower!

Katie said...

um whoa all those symptoms and I'd be cranky too!! Nursery is still looking amazing and sorry about your rings :( they will be back on in no time!

Tiffany said...

You have a right to be super cranky...I sure would.
