33 weeks

For some reason I keep thinking it's week 34...but no, we're at 33.  I'm getting ahead of myself.

I had an unexpected visit to the doctor this morning due to some very uncomfortable cramping yesterday and last night.  I actually was going to ignore it and Bryan insisted I call the doctor.  (It's funny to see him getting a little more nervous, just don't tell him I said that)  Anywho, the doctor had me come in to get checked and we're all doing just fine.  She did say however that the baby is definitely head down and low.  That surprised me a bit considering I've felt like the baby has been living in my rib cage lately, but maybe he/she has long legs!!  That would be nice, I would rather little nugget have dad's legs than mom's legs! 

So, do we think this positioning means baby might be coming a little early??  That might be wishful thinking on my part, but I'm still going to get to work this weekend on the nursery!  It's time to get organized!
Let the nesting begin!!

Stats of the Week 

Size of baby: A little over 4lbs and past the 17 inch mark!!  It's resembling a pineapple these days...delsih!!

What I miss:  Sleeping and not struggling to get dressed. 

Best Moment this week: Seeing friends and family in NJ for the baby shower!  It dawned on me as we were leaving that was the last time I'll see my family before I have the baby...scary! 
What baby likes AKA cravings: I still want sweets, but I'm trying to keep it in check.  I wasn't thrilled with what the scale said at the doctor this week...or how my rear end seems to be growing in sync with my stomach!

Movement:  So much!!  It's almost painful at times now.  We can just stare at my stomach now and watch the little nugget move all around!  It's crazy!

Sleep:  It is what it is.  I get up a lot to use the bathroom, and although they (the books) tell you to sleep on your left side, I find my right side MUCH more comfortable!!  Therefore, I sleep mostly on my right side.  Baby doesn't seem to mind.  

Looking Forward to: Going through all our wonderful gifts and getting the nursery organized!  It's time to get prepared!

OMG - that head down and ready to go comment got me all excited! i hope he/she comes early (well as early as healthfully possible of course)!!!! you looked beautiful at your NJ shower and i really enjoy that baby coble has Springsteen paraphernalia. that's going to set him/her apart from the crowd at a little gym for sure.
