33 weeks (baby #2)


33 weeks - baby is the size of a head of broccoli
She weights about 4.5 pounds and is about 19 inches long!


How far along: 33 weeks!
Swelling: No
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: I started using my Snoogle pillow this week...I tried it when I was pregnant with Harper, but never really liked it. This time around, I am loving it!
Best moment of the week:  Spent a day at Aquatica (can you tell we love that place) with Harper, my mom and three nephews/niece. The weather was perfect, the kids all behaved so well, and everyone had such a fun time. This mamma got a little tan going on too! Our pool water is still a bit too cold to swim in, but swimming feel so good when you're pregnant - nothing like being huge but feeling weightless in the water!
Worst moment of the week: I've had a cold most of the week - nothing too bad, but I think I have laryngitis - rocking little to no voice most of the weekend. Coughing and sore throat getting worse as well. There should be a law that pregnant women can't get colds. Sleeping is the hardest, as the symptoms always seem to be worse at night.
Running/Workouts: Broken records - some days are great and I knock out four miles without any problems...other days, a mile feels like a marathon. Feeling good still being very active though! And haven't had any weight gain in my third trimester (yet).
Missing anything: No
Movement: Kicking and dancing like crazy - still is and will forever be the greatest feeling in the world!
Things that make me queasy/recent cravings: This past week I've had some pretty nasty heartburn for the first time. So I've switched out a few things from my diet to try and minimize the reflux. Worst part is the heartburn exacerbates my nausea like crazy (actually just ran to throw up writing this because of the heartburn). Have I mentioned I won't miss this part of the pregnacy?
Labor signs: The usual contractions throughout the day, mostly when I have a full bladder. Nothing painful though.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: Tired
Looking forward to: We unfortunately missed out on my step sisters wedding this weekend due to it being in south Florida, and the Zika threat. In the next two weeks though we have two more weddings to attend. Happy to be sharing the love with our friends!
Something surprising about being pregnant with baby #2: This is the first time I've experience heartburn. Holy moly this crap is awful. Tums only does so much, and just the thought of this chalky little devils nauseates me. Here's hoping this babe has more hair at birth than our bald little Harper had :)
