How Far Along: 33 Weeks!
Baby is the size of: A pineapple
Total Weight Gain: Still at 28!
Sleep: Sunday into Monday I was up from 4:30am until my alarm went off at 6:00am. And what happened then? After my alarm went off...I slept until 7. Soooo alarm going off triggers sleep. Ok. Luckily, I didn't work on Monday so it was no big deal. Other than that night, sleeping fine.
Best Moment of the week:
*Chris painted the nursery allll day on Sunday all by himself! He was such a hard worker, and it really paid off. It looks great!! His parents had two leftover cans of green paint from their basement that fit our color scheme perfectly, so we were able to use that and I can't wait to see it all come together now!
*I don't know if it's our imagination or if we're being extra cuddly with her, but Zoey has been extremely cuddly and needy lately. It's actually the cutest thing ever and it kind of melts my heart. She crawls into my lap any chance she gets. If I'm sitting...she's there: wants to be in my lap at all times, even though she can't even really sit in it, she has to sort of "perch" on the belly. It's the first sign of any change in her since I've been pregnant. (that we've noticed anyway)
Worst Moment of the Week:
*I FINALLY had a free day to go to yoga after a month hiatus and I STILL missed my train. Couldn't go and moped about it for the rest of the evening. Yep...I moped.
*Trying on the bridesmaid dress that I'm wearing in oh...3 weeks...for a friend's wedding. I ordered it 3 sizes bigger than I measured back in May, and it wouldn't even zip up. Sadly - this dress was not as huge as I anticipated it being. All is well, it's currently in the hands of a proficient tailor and I'm picking it up 4 days before the wedding - yikes!
*A coworker referred to me leaving for maternity leave/then working from home as "retirement" and I couldn't help but question the intent behind the comment. Totally not worth getting into it with her, whether she meant it or not - but I have a feeling this isn't the first time I'll be faced with a comment like that, and I should probably start practicing with some appropriate responses.
*Kind of annoyed that my doctor cancelled my appointment yesterday last minute because he had a meeting. I had to reschedule for Thursday morning. I specifically scheduled it for Monday because I had off of work....not thrilled.
Miss Anything: I actually really did want a glass of spiced red wine over the weekend. It's the season for great reds now that it's getting colder.
Food Cravings: Actually yes: Chocolate Milk. I've been LOVING a big, tall glass of chocolate milk, and lately - Chris has been making them with a scoop of peanut butter mixed in and Oh MY HEAVEN. It's all I can do not to chug it like a glass of water on a hot day.
Anything make you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show? Yes
Gender: Team Green
*Heartburn every day from about 2:00pm-7:00pm. It usually starts up after lunch and lasts until I eat dinner. This week it got reallllly bad. Like burning so bad in my throat I could hardly swallow at one point.
*Cramps on Thursday - maybe dehydration? VERY Stuffed nose started on Monday - actually wondering if I'm coming down with something?
*The itching started this week...just a few days ago, on Friday I think. I've heard about the itching during the later stages of pregnancy but didn't really understand what it would feel like...but now I do. It started at my feet and ankles on Friday - it felt like I had a bunch of mosquito bites and it felt so good to scratch them. Then on Sunday afternoon into Sunday and Monday it moved up my legs. My legs are itching me sooooo badly. Ariane, from Storymix Media, says that it means I need to drink more water. Which, I was sort of bad about on Sunday and Monday. Anyway, the itching is really annoying! Seriously hoping I don't have 6+ more weeks of it!
Workouts: Missed Yoga (see worst moment of the week) Walks with Zoey
Mood: Generally good
Looking forward to: Getting the crib delivered today!!! The nursery is all starting to come together now! Now we can actually unpack all the nursery items and decorate this weekend!
Maternity Clothes: Yes
Stretchmarks: Nothing new, using BioOil at least once, sometimes twice, a day.
Rings on or off? Engagement ring off, wedding band on
Bellybutton in or out? Ehhhhh hard to say. Kind of half in, half out...the top half is jutting out more and more each week.
This week I:
*Painted the nursery (Well Chris did)
*Organized baby shower gifts some more - it took me two days to create a spreadsheet keeping track of what everyone got for me. Now - MUST START THANK-YOU'S!!!
*Had another consultation at Buy, Buy Baby (more on that tomorrow)
*Finalized details with my boss for my maternity and part-time work from home situation after I have the baby (which I wrote about yesterday)
This week's question: What exactly is DREFT and why do I need to wash my baby clothes with it?
Reading: The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
This week the baby weighs just over 4 pounds and is about 17 inches long
