33 Weeks

33 weeks

It’s official – the pregnancy hormones are in full force this week!  I’ve had a few different sob sessions where I can’t seem to pull myself together.  It can be triggered by anything – an article, commercial, movie, conversation, you name it.  I end up laughing in the middle of ugly crying because I know how ridiculous I must look, but I can’t make it stop!  Today my cry sesh started when I ran across the last half hour of Father of the Bride 2 – which I’ve seen dozens of times – and Nina and Annie (mother and daughter) are having babies at the same time.  I was out of control, and Mike was just staring at me like I was from outer space.

How far along: 33 weeks and the size of a durian fruit – about 17 inches long and a little over 4 pounds.  I had no idea what a durian fruit was until I happened to be watching Real Housewives of OC last week and saw Tamra and Heather trying it while in Bali!  Did anyone else happen to see that??  I thought it looked pretty similar to a pineapple but maybe a little bigger.

Gender: Baby Girl Molly June!

Belly button in or out: Out.

Sleep: Still suffering from back and shoulder pain from the uncomfortable position I have to sleep in these days, but I am having a prenatal massage this week, and I CAN. NOT. WAIT.  

Best moment this week: This has been a pretty great week with a few great moments to choose from – aside from my almost daily breakdowns!  Monday we had the hospital tour, and Mike and I were both really impressed by how nice the maternity unit is at Northside.  It almost feels like a spa when you walk through the front doors – so serene and peaceful.  We really enjoyed the tour and felt like things were getting a lot more real at that point!  Friday my sweet coworkers threw us a shower, and that night our amazing friends thew a dinner celebration in Molly’s honor.  It has been such a busy summer, so it was really nice to see friends we haven’t seen in awhile and catch up with everyone.  Today we started getting the nursery in order, and we are feeling great about how it’s coming together!  We have the furniture in and assembled except for the glider that we are still waiting on.  Now I just get to accessorize and organize.  I’ll be sure to share pictures on the blog once we have it finished!

Miss anything: Energy and not crying at the drop of a hat :).

Movement/Symptoms: Molly is still extremely active these days.  I had my 32 week appointment this past week, and my doctor said her heartbeat was over 160 bmp which means she was moving around a lot.  As far as symptoms, heartburn seems to be getting worse and worse each day!  

Cravings: Everything sweet under the sun.  Also supremely spicy hummus.

Looking forward to: Mike turns the big 3-2 this Thursday, and we’ll be leaving around lunch that day to head to Charleston for a long weekend!  We are combining Mike’s birthday celebration with a Babymoon – our last real getaway before Molly is here!  We are filling our weekend with amazing food, relaxation by the pool and beach, and one morning that I’m really looking forward to – I’m spending a few hours at a spa getting a prenatal massage (Hallelujah!), facial and pedicure while Mike spends some time checking off a big item on his bucket list – playing the ocean golf course at Kiawah Island.  We are both really looking forward to getting away for a few days to unwind and relax!

23 Weeks

How far along: 23 weeks and the size of a grapefruit – more than 11 inches long and just over a pound. 

Gender: GIRL!

Maternity clothes: Living in mostly non-maternity flowing dresses this week which has been nice.  This heat has been intense, and I know it will just get worse as the summer goes on… especially as I get more uncomfortable.

Belly button in or out: In.. barely.

Sleep: Sleeping ok.  I’ve had a more difficult time falling asleep lately because there is a mile long to-do list constantly running through my head.  I’m starting to feel a little more stressed about things we need to get done in the next couple of months, and I tend to focus on all of these things late at night for some reason.  I also woke up in the middle of the night one night this week in agonizing pain after flipping from one side to the other.  It hurt so badly that I started thinking something might be wrong and started googling on my phone – something my doctor told me to NEVER do!  Googling when pregnant brings up terrifying answers for any question you may have.  Anyway, I pretty much decided that it was just round ligament pain.  I’ve felt it off on on before when coughing, sneezing, or making sudden movements like getting up too fast, but it’s never been that painful or intense.  I read that if I try to just lie still for a few minutes and stay calm it should go away, and it did.  

Best moment this week: Mike finally felt Baby Mully kick last night!  He never knows what he’s feeling for, but she was being crazy active last night so I knew he would eventually feel her.  It was so cool to finally be able to share that together!

Miss anything: Now that these hot summer days are here to stay, I do miss an ice cold beer….

Movement: All day every day!  I feel her moving right now.  This is one active little girl… I’m starting to wonder if she’ll be the same way after she’s born.  If so, I think we are in for a wild ride.

Cravings: Cantaloupe is still my current favorite followed by all other sweet fruits, popsicles, and ice cream!

Baby Purchases/Gifts: Gap was having a huge online sale this week, so we made our first baby clothing purchase!  Baby girl clothes are the cutest!

Looking forward to: A week at the beach!!  We leave next weekend for Seaside, FL to spend a week in the sun with my family, and I cannot wait!  Relaxation, amazing food, the ocean, a few books, and family time is just what this girl needs.  We will then leave from there that following Thursday night and head to Tampa to spend the rest of the weekend with my best friends from college.  It’s going to be one amazing week!  Let the countdown begin…..
