It’s week 33 and we’re headed to the Jersey Shore for a week with my family, following my cousins wedding. We have added the car seat and hospital bags to our cargo for this trip, but have our fingers crossed that baby boy stays put so we’re not running to an unfamiliar hospital for any unexpected arrivals.
I told Dan that he had to take my picture prior to us leaving for our road trip, just in case this was the last belly shot we got (we’re not nervous about having this guy while we’re away or anything?!). So here goes the update for this week:
How far along: 33 weeks
Baby is the size of a: pineapple
Total weight gain/measurements: 30 lbs
Maternity clothes: yes – sundresses and maxi skirts are my best friends!
Stretch marks: I’m getting the feeling that these are inevitable, with how big this boy is getting, but I can’t see them yet.
Sleep: Sleep has been so-so, but definitely interrupted due to having to pee every few hours.
Best moment of this week: Packing for vacation! We’ve been waiting for this get-a-way all summer!
Miss Anything? My normal shoe size. Thank goodness its summer and I can just wear flip flops because my feet are now fitting into a 9.5/10 size shoe (I normally wear an 8)
Food cravings: juice pops
Anything that makes you queasy or sick: No
Labor Signs: Yes, lots of Braxton Hicks contractions happening
Belly Button in or out? It, but it’s about to pop!
Wedding rings on or off? Has to be off. Everything’s just swollen and I have a fear of keeping it on and having to have it cut off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Looking forward to a week at the beach with our family and just getting away from the stress of everything going on at home.
Looking forward to: Sitting on the beach and getting some sun!
