33 Weeks

How far along: 33 Weeks
How big is the baby: Baby boy is the length of a leek-17.2 inches
Weight gain: 32 pounds-I need to stop eating a cookie every day!
Rings: Still fitting fine.
Belly Button: Still an innie.
Doctor/Medical/Body Stuff: Most of the time during the day I feel really good. I was thinking the other day "My body rocks at this pregnancy thing. I'm feeling better now than I did earlier in my pregnancy." And then Friday happened. And I was heartburn-y, uncomfortable and tight and yucky all day. But it was after an awful night of no sleep, so let's hope that doesn't continue. 
Sleep: Totally depends on the night. Some nights I sleep well (for being 33 weeks pregnant) and others I get 3 hours of sleep.
Movement: He is head down and his appendages all hang out on my right side. I love to play with him when he pushes a foot out at me and I nudge it back! My sister is home visiting from Cairo for the week and she can't stop giggling every time she feels him move!
Food/Aversions: Same old same old. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to what causes the heartburn.
What I miss: Sleep (I know. I know. I will never sleep well again until my kids are 30.)
What I am looking forward to: Two of my baby showers this weekend!! I can't believe they are here!!!
Baby Projects: The hanging light is finally finished finished and I blogged about it here. Other than that, not a lot got done this week. We've both been crazy busy with work and with my sister home this week we were doing family stuff all weekend.
Pearls from the Preschool: 
"What is your baby's name?"
"I think you should name him Peaches!"
Oh! And This: I learned in our Bradley Classes that sitting "Indian Style" is a great position for a pregnant woman to sit in and we don't do it enough in our society. Well....I sit like that half the day! We also learned about squatting in preparation for labor and you need to try to hold it for a minute. Well...I do that the other half of the day! Apparently being a preschool teacher is good preparation for childbirth!
