33 weeks

How far along? 33 weeks
Gender: Girl
Weight Gain? 28 pounds
Maternity Clothes?  Clothing becomes more interesting with each passing week, there isn't much that fits great anymore except for maternity and even some of my maternity jeans from early on have now been retired.  I'm not purchasing anymore clothes since we are so close so if I end up in yoga pants my last few weeks of work, so be it! 
Stretch Marks? None!
Belly button in or out?  Flat
Sleep:  Still a hit or miss, still feeling congested, but I know in roughly 7 weeks (give or take) sleep will be a thing of the past anyway.
Best moment this week:  More and more nursery progress!  We got our rocker which is soo comfy, we haven't gotten the ottoman yet but I'm registered for it.  We will either use that or a leather pouf depending on what we get at the shower this weekend.  Starting to slowly pack my hospital bag and get the diaper bag ready, reading tons of blogs and books and articles about natural child birth and I feel as though I am about as ready as I can be and now all of the information that I'm reading sound repetitive so I think I'm grasping the important parts, and also prepping our birth plan!  Last week I met the last of the 4 potential midwives (there are 4 in the office that I go to, any of which could be the one to deliver Georgia) and I just loved her.  She was very supportive of some of the things that we want for our birth plan like no Hepatitis B vaccine and no eye ointment, she is also a big fan of delayed bathing (up to 3 days) which is something I feel strongly about.  Once I have our entire birth plan written out and approved I'll be sure to share it with you guys!  (Please keep negative judgements & comments about our birth plan & choices to yourself, thank you)
Symptoms:  Just the usual, fatigue, discomfort, some back pain which I've been seeing the chiropractor for and now that the pain is pretty much gone I'm still continuing to see him 2x a week until the baby comes.  
Miss Anything?  Being able to move and breath freely without discomfort.  
Movement?  Still moving pretty regularly but I can tell she is running out of space now.
Cravings?  Sweets are all I've craved this entire pregnancy.  I did get my Chinese food fix this past weekend which I had my mind set on for a few weeks too.
Queasy or sick?  Noting at all!
Looking forward to?  We have our first class at the hospital this week which is breastfeeding on Wednesday.  I also have a prenatal massage on Thursday and then my shower is Saturday which I cannot wait for! 


  1. Loved my 4 natural births, my youngest is 15 and I would do natural all over again if I could!
    Good luck ! It's the hardest, but most rewarding, thing(s) i ever did.

  2. Yay! Enjoy your shower! And your breastfeeding class. That was money well spent for me and I did learn a lot and what kind of questions to ask while in the hospital. I wish I would have thought more about the delayed bathing for 3 days. Poo.

  3. You sound ready for that natural birth you so want. We didn't do hep B or the eye ointment either, and I am so happy with those decisions. I would write some of your favorite birth affirmations on note cards and have those with you. Maybe have joe read them between contractions. Some of my favorites: I see myself handling this beautifully. My baby is the perfect size for me. My body was MEANT to do this. Women all over the world are birthing their babies at the same time as me.
