33 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 33 weeks
Size of baby: 17-ish inches long and four-ish pounds (the size of a pineapple)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I've gained a lot of weight. I don't know the number right now because at my last appointment the new nurse took my stats, and I forgot to ask her since I was so bummed not to have my regular girl.
Maternity Clothes: Yes in everything. And I am SOOOO thankful for my awesome friends who are letting me borrow so many clothes! Shout out to Kendra, Kyndra, Whitney, Julia and Brooke!
Gender: We're having a GIRL! Harper Kate :)
Movement: Baby girl moves a LOT. At least now she's balancing out between my left and right sides.
Sleep: Yeah, that. I sleep. Not very well, but I sleep. I get super hot at night, but I really like to have a blanket on, so that complicates matters. Just do not tell me that it's my body's way of getting ready for sleepless nights with a newborn. That is a lie. I slept waaaay better after both of my kids were born than during pregnancy, even including the multiple feeding wake ups.
What I miss: Not needing to pee every thirty minutes. Really, it's getting out of hand.
Cravings: Carbs. Sugar. Dairy. I guess I shouldn't be surprised about the weight gain, haha. 
Symptoms: A big ol' belly. Occasional shooting pains in my legs (I'm working on improving circulation). Lower back pain (although yay for weekly chiro appointments now; I'm hopeful for improvement or at least tolerance).
Best Moment this week: VBS! It's going really well, and I'm just relieved that it's here. We've been working on it for so long, and it's my last hurrah as the children's ministry director (I'll write a separate post on that later). It's definitely bittersweet, but I'm trying to enjoy it even though we're in survival mode this week!
I was supposed to start my two-week appointments with my OB this week, but since everything looks good and this is my third time around, he made it three so I don't go back until next week. Either way, we're only 7ish weeks from meeting Harper, so next week begins the rush to get baby stuff ready and catch up on and get ahead on Etsy orders! I can't believe it's getting so close!
