Bumpdate: 33 weeks

How Far Along: 33 weeks

Size of the baby:
A pineapple (about 19-22 in long, 4.9 lbs)

Total Weight Gain: 17 lbs Update: 20 lbs (just got back from doctor, baby is growing!)

Maternity Clothes: ALL maternity, finding it difficult to dress these days because I have worn so many dresses up to this point and now with the weather cooling off - - trying to find pants I like has become a challenge. Really thinking about buying a tarp, poking some holes in it for my head and arms and calling it a day. I can always jazz it up with a belt or something....

Gender: Unknown. Most people said they thought we would have a girl, but I've had 3 people in the last week tell me I look like I'm carrying a boy.... what excitement it will be when we find out!

Movement: All day and all night, most of the time a feel a foot on the right side and then the head or some other body part lifting up on the other side, funny to watch!

Sleep: Not much, waking up to use the restroom a whole lot. I have also become very thirsty at night, so I drink water, go to sleep, wake up to use the restroom, drink more water, sleep, and start the whole cycle over again.

What I miss: Getting around with ease, I struggle to breath and move around with the extra weight.

Symptoms: Swelling of feet and hands, THIRSTY, backaches...

Cravings: THIRSTY for orange juice when I wake up and thirsty for water all night long.

Weekly Wisdom: People really WILL say anything to a pregnant lady with no filter.

Best Moment of the Week: Being able to be with a friend who had her baby 9 weeks early and meeting her little guy for the first time - what a miracle to see.

Looking forward to: Fall Break this week, seeing some friends, and my next doctor's appointment.


  1. I can't believe you are 33 weeks pregnant already! Time is going by really fast. Put your feet up and relax this week. =)

  2. I can't believe it either, Lea! I have been waiting for this Fall break for so long :)

  3. How often are you going to the Dr. now? I'm just wondering when he's going to start having me come in more often than every 4 weeks.

    Btw, I LOVE the yellow shirt you had on at your shower! Where do you find your cute maternity clothes?!?!

  4. Sara, I go to the doctor every two weeks now [that started at week 30], in November I will go every week... That yellow shirt is actually Target, not maternity, just a larger size. You are welcome to borrow! I go to the Baby Gap in Collierville a lot to hit up their maternity sale rack, Target, Macys and Motherhood. I just hunt for cute and cheap!
