Baby Bump #2: 33 Weeks

How Far Along?:  33 weeks and 6 days!
Size of Baby:  Should be around 4 pounds now! The size of a cauliflower! 
Gender:  Lil' baby boy!
Weight Gain:  According to my last appointment, I'm up about 17 pounds now.
Maternity Clothes:  Absolutely. 
Stretch Marks:  Yes... some dreaded marks have appeared on the front of my belly. Noooo! 
Movement:  This boy is definitely growing. As the days go by and we get closer to due date, I can tell he is running out of room. His moving never ceases to amaze me, though. I'm so thankful for every move he makes.
Symptoms:  Mostly normal! Just feeling YUGE these days. Walking is fun... my center of gravity is off, my hips and joints feel like those of an 80-year-old woman, and the back pain is REAL.
Sleep:  Sleeping like a log, except for this week, as big brother Jackson has decided he wants mommy in the middle of the night, every night. Then once he's back to bed, the insomnia kicks in for me. :(
Cravings:  STILL Asiago cheese bagels from Panera. And mac and cheese. And pop... so much pop. What a healthy pregnancy.
Nursery:  Baby brother's room has definitely made some progress! Crib is up and bedding is on. I was even able to wash up some clothes, blankets, and towels for the little one. Just some minor organizing left!
Belly Button in or out?:  Straight up outie these days.
Wedding rings on or off?:  On!
Mood:  I'm so so happy and thankful, but I'd be lying if I said the stress hasn't hit me. Two. Babes. I'm so nervous for this... and the lack of sleep I know will hit all of us. I'm worried how these little ones will affect each other's sleep schedules, life schedules. Lord, help us.
What I Miss:  I'm going to need a frozen margarita approximately 30 seconds after this child leaves my body, LOL.
Best Moment This Week:  I love the few minutes in the early morning hours when Matt says goodbye to me before leaving for work. It's 5:40 AM, with the sun just starting to rise, and I feel sometimes that's when our hearts connect the most. He rubs my belly just after a quick kiss for mama. It's so sweet and heartfelt... my eyes are tearing up just thinking about it. I love him more than words could ever say.
