Baby Bound - Week 33

Three-and-a-half generations!
 And.......Because it was too hard to resist!  Heh heh hey. Sorry Pops!

How are you feeling?  The hormones are back this week!  Talk about a weeping, moody mess.  Everything has made me cry.  And if I'm not crying, then I'm completely stressed out for no reason.  Ahh, how I haven't missed the mood swings the past couple of months.

Stretch marks?  WOW!  I went to bed with the same stretch marks I've had for a while now but when I woke up, it looked like I got into a fight.  They're still pretty light but I can see where they are starting across the belly and I can tell they're going to be bad.  Good thing one-piece swimsuits are making a comeback.  Fair well bikini!   OH AND.....At my doctors appointment this week my husband noticed long hairs growing on my stomach where I can't see them.  Ack!  As we're leaving the office he lovingly leans over and whispers, "We've gotta take care of that ish!".  At least he's looking out.  LOL!

Best moment of the week?  My baby shower!  I have dreamt of my baby shower since I was too young to even be thinking about having children.  Its kind of been a big deal to me and right up there with my wedding day.  I don't know why its always been so important to me but it was, and I can honestly say it far exceeded anything I had ever imagined it would be.  I can't say that about many things.  I have a tendency to build things up in my head and they rarely meet the unreasonable expectations that I set.  (At least I can admit it, right?!)  Well this did and went way beyond!  I walked in the front door, took a look around and completely lost it.  I could instantly tell the amount of hard work and thought that had gone into planning it, and I was moved to tears.  You ladies really outdid yourselves and I can't thank you enough!  And then to see all of my family and friends who took time out of their schedules to come celebrate our little one's meant the world!

Sleep?  I'm starting to miss it.  Nightly bathroom breaks are up to 4-5 times a night and 2:00 AM cereal breaks are at least 1-2 times a week.  Geeeeeezzzz!

Discomforts?  Rib pain.  Oh the rib pain.  :(  And Its not really a discomfort but the swelling in my ankles has started.  Until now, I had only swelled up on the airplane but this week it seems to be a regular occurance.  Hello sausage legs!

EWWW I can't believe I'm posting this but its so interesting that this happens.  Where's my ankles??? EEEWWW!

Cravings?  Not really.  I actually haven't had much of an appetite this week so my indecisiveness when it comes to food is in full gear.

Miss anything?  Tomato soup and anything with red sauce.  Holy heartburn if I eat any of it!

Anything off the list?  All Asian food.  Uh-huh!  ASIAN FOOD!  Can you believe it?  Pre-pregnancy I used to live on Thai and Chinese food.  Now, it doesn't even sound good.  And on the rare occasion that it has, I've paid for it big-time.

Movement?  She's quite the wiggle-worm these days!  I keep trying to capture it on video but she doesn't cooperate.

Belly button in or out?  Still flat.

Wedding rings on or off?  Still off.

Current mood?  Right now?  In this current moment?  I'm not crying and I'm not moody!  WIN!!!

Nursery Progress:

We finally finished the night stand.  This was my grandma's old, beat up bedside table that I wanted to incorporate.  By chance, I found the same paint color as the dresser and I had the hardware laying around in our garage.  Its perfect!




  1. Hahaha! the belly pic with your dad is great! :)

  2. Love all your pics! The one of your ankles makes me want to elevate your feet all night or put your in compression stockings, but that is probably just the nurse in me. So glad I could be at your shower and the night stand is so cute!

  3. You're such a good nurse! :) And thank you!
