Bumpdate: 33 Weeks

size of the baby:  A durian - which I had to look up. If you're as curious as I was, click here

total weight gain:  21.5 - holding strong! 

gender: Baby Girl - Miss Olivia Rose 

movement: lots & lots - her movements are pretty hard to miss at this point & she literally kicked Ella in the back the other day when she was sitting on my lap. 

missing: nothing in particular... just kind of ready to get on with the whole baby thing! 

craving: ice cream, donuts, sweets, anything bad for me. 

exercise: I logged 72,070 steps last week - which equates to just over 30 miles. I'm feeling pretty good, but I'm not stressing about my hitting my steps every day now. If it happens, it happens. If it's pouring down rain, I'm not going to stress & pace around my dining room. Instead, I'll just take it as a sign that God wants me to rest :) 

symptoms: heartburn, Braxton Hicks, sciatica - you name it, I'm probably dealing with it. I'm super uncomfortable at night, but once I get to sleep I'm so exhausted that I pass out. 

best moments: I really missed Eric & Ella while they were gone last weekend, but I really enjoyed the quiet of my house. I read an article the other day about the one thing pregnant women don't take advantage of enough is just getting up & leaving. I know that's probably geared towards first time moms, but it struck a chord with me too. Ella & I have our own systems, so we can get out of the house pretty quickly to do just about anything. That's all going to change soon, so I savored my "freedom" this weekend & got out to do things! 

looking forward to: 
  • My doctor's appointment later today - I hate afternoon appointments because I get so anxious throughout the day. Fingers crossed everything is well! 
  • My birthday celebrations this weekend! Eric is taking me out to dinner & to see Entourage on Friday night. Then on Saturday, I'm going with my sister & Ella to my parents' country house for a little family party!
