33 Weeks!

Can you tell I look tired?

How Far Along?  33 weeks!

Weight Gain?  up yet another 4 pounds (yikes!), so 27 total

Dr. Appts.?  I went last friday and everything is looking excellent!  My blood pressure was better than the time before (thank goodness) and my mid wife is very pleased with everything thus far.  I asked a bunch of questions this time and I'm sure I'll just have more and more as the weeks dwindle down!

How big is baby this week?  According to my weekly newsletters, somewhere between 4.5 - 5 pounds!

Gender/Name?  Girl - Makayla Giuliana

Movements?  All the time!  In fact, I'm going to try to capture some movements w/my webcam this week so I can do a vlog..fingers crossed!!

Discomforts?  Swelling when I'm up doing alot, heartburn with a passion (I get it even when I just drink water!), heart palpatations at times, sweating, tiredness..so nothing totally new really.

Looking forward to?  When she gets here and I know all is ok!

Nursery?  As you saw from yesterdays post..its basically finished!!  All we have left to do is to clean out the closet and thats about it!  I LOOVVEE her room!

Things I'm still needing?  Lots..I still don't have a baby bathtub, diaper genie, carrier, swing, and a few other things I can't think of right off hand!  Thankfully I have money from my shower I can use to pick up some of these items with! 

Sleep?  I'm still sleeping pretty good though its so hard to get comfortable when I first lay down at night.  Most times I just feel like I could sleep half the day.

And finally..here is a picture of me last week, at 32 weeks, taken after my baby shower!!



  1. You look terrific, Melanie! :) Pregnancy agrees with you. I know you're getting tired now but it will be SO worth it in the end!

  2. look at you girl..I have to agree pregnancy does agree with you and you look great.
