33 Weeks

How far along:  33 weeks
Gender:  Girl
Belly button in or out: Out.
Maternity clothes:  Thankful for my collection of cardigans that I can still wear (unbuttoned) to work.
Stretch marks: Still nothing new.
Sleep: Some nights are good, others not so much.
Best moment this week: Another doctor's appointment confirming all looks good with baby girl. :)
Miss anything:  My bladder is not what it used to be... and it wasn't very good in the first place.
Movement:  Lots of hiccups lately!
Cravings:  At this very moment, the dark chocolate pomegranate in our kitchen cabinet is calling my name.
Queasy or sick:  Pizza has been the biggest heartburn culprit, which is unfortunate because I like it so much, I just keep eating it anyway.
Looking forward to:  My shower this weekend. :)

32 Weeks

How far along:  32 weeks - officially in month #8!
Gender:  Girl
Belly button in or out: Out.
Maternity clothes:  Really hoping it warms up a little because I'm not sure how much longer my regular jackets are going to zip up for.
Stretch marks: Still nothing new, but I think a couple I had pre-pregnancy on my sides are getting darker and longer. Considering it took 32 weeks, I guess I can't complain too much.
Sleep: Sleep is good for the first few hours, then I'm up at like 1, 2, 3, 4 am... usually I need to go to the bathroom, and it's a struggle to decide whether to get up and disturb all of the creatures on the bed or just try to roll over until a cat pokes me in the face to wake me up, anyway.
Best moment this week: Getting some nice compliments from clients.  After hearing several variations of "you're getting so big" (um, thanks?) last week, getting told that I'm tiny (except for my belly) was nice...  Regardless of whether it's true. ;)
Miss anything:  Sleep.
Movement:  Yes but I can definitely tell she's getting more and more cramped in there. 
Cravings:  Adding ice water and extremely watered down raspberry lemonade to the list this week.
Queasy or sick:  Nothing new here.
Looking forward to:  Since it's the first day of spring (and obviously snowing), definitely looking forward to some actual spring weather! It'll be coming soon, right?

In other news, my baby boys are going to be FOUR on Monday. I can't believe it.  Seems like yesterday we had these two little men running around the house. :)

Happy Birthday to my first (fur) babies, Bradley & Colby! xo

31 Weeks

How far along:  31 weeks
Gender:  Girl
Belly button in or out: Out.
Maternity clothes:  I bought what turned out to be the most ridiculous looking dress from Old Navy, which is weird because I really liked the other maternity clothes I bought from there.  It was about 500 times too big (length, width, everything) and I got my normal dress size.  In Tyler's words, it looked like I could parachute off a building.
Stretch marks: None yet. 
Sleep: Starting to get harder to find comfortable positions to sleep in.
Best moment this week: Not having an alarm go off at 4:30 am on Saturday has been awesome. :)
Miss anything:  Being able to comfortably bend at the waist. You know, putting on socks and shoes, getting out of the car, picking up the giant stack of papers I dropped all over the floor at work...
Movement:  Yes and sometimes a little painful - kicks to the ribs or just in the same spot over and over again.  I think she's trying to break out of there!
Cravings:  Ellie's bound to love fruit (and ice cream).
Queasy or sick:  Pretty much the same as before.  I'm the most uncomfortable sitting in one position for longer than like 10 minutes, so basically at work.
Looking forward to: My due date is 2 months from today!!

30 Weeks

How far along:  30 weeks
Gender:  Girl
Belly button in or out: Out.
Maternity clothes:  Still a mix.  I pretty much just rotate the same outfits week after week, but I'm okay with that.
Stretch marks: None yet. 
Sleep: Pretty good.
Best moment this week: Finding out I passed my glucose tolerance test was a pretty good one.  I really didn't want to go back for the second round. I've also been waiting for Gap to come out with some new summery stuff and they finally did - including this ice cream one-piece, which will more likely than not find it's way into Ellia's closet. :)
Miss anything:   Energy. Getting out of breath from hardly doing anything is not a great feeling.
Movement:  Lots of movement whenever I'm driving. It's always the extra weird, trying to crawl out of my skin feeling, movements too.
Cravings:  Really enjoying fruit - grapefruit and strawberries this week.
Queasy or sick:  Same, extra sleepy and general uncomfortable-ness.
Looking forward to:  Hopefully getting some more nursery stuff picked out soon.  Also, I hate missing an hour on the weekend, but at least it'll still be light out when I leave work from now on. :)
