Macy Jane - 33 weeks

How Far Along: 33 weeks, 2 days

Fruit: "Think the heft of a pineaple"

"baby has passed the 17-inch mark."

Baby changes: She's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alient look and her skeleton is hardening.

Best Moment this week: Nothing too exciting has happened. Tomorrow Jennifer and Stephanie and the ladies from church are throwing me and Macy a baby shower. And, then on Thursday I have my 34 week check up. I'll only have one more check up in two weeks and then it's every week. This time in my pregancy with Anna I was put on bedrest, and in two weeks I had her. I can't believe that! With Macy it's totally different. No blood pressure problems, very minimal swelling, no issues! I'm praying that continues and I make it right on through until 39 weeks and the scheduled c-section on the 30th of May!

Gender: Girl! Macy Jane!

Movement: She isn't moving around as much. It's more like rolling and poking out what I think is her bottom now.

Food Craving: Nothing in particular really.

What I miss: Sleeping through the night. The insomnia has really set in. I don't understand how I can be so exhausted but I can't sleep.

Sleep: What's that?

What I am looking forward to: tomorrow is my shower and I always enjoy getting together with the people at our church.

Symptoms: sore back, waddling (is that a symptom?)

Total weight gain/ Loss {ya right}: 8 pounds

Maternity clothes? Yes!
Have you started to show yet? yes

Labor signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On - most days. There were two days this past week I couldn't put it on first thing or had to take it off in the middle of the day. But, so far, yes!

Mood? I have my days :)

33 weeks

Momma and Macy at 33 weeks! Looking forward to meeting her and seeing Anna and her together. We gave prayed for Macy since we found out and I continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy and delivery! I am wearing my wedding ring still which means very little swelling. With Anna Tate ring was off around 23 weeks due to swelling. I haven't had any blood pressure issues which by this time had also started. I'm so thankful that so far, so good and keep praying for my health and that of Macy's!

Macy Jane: 31 weeks 3 days

How Far Along:31 weeks, 3 days

Fruit: 3.3 lounds - try carrying 4 navel oranges - from

Size: By this week, your baby weighs 3.3 pounds and is over 16 inches long


Baby changes: She can turn her head from side to side, and her arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath her skin. She's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.

Best Moment this week: This week....nothing major. I think that third trimester exhaustion has hit 100%. That's really not the best but that happened none the less.

Gender: Girl! Macy Jane!

Movement: She's always really active

Food Craving: Nothing in particular really. No food aversions either

What I miss: Sleeping. Not hurting (feeling like i've riddena horse all day)

Sleep: I can fall asleep really easily but...I wake up around 2:30 or 3 and either toss or turn or fall asleep about an hour before my alarm goes off.

What I am looking forward to: Holding Macy! I can't wait. Looking at her face. Kissing her tiny cheeks. - THis never changes from week to week. We only have 7 weeks and 4 days to go!

Symptoms: Lots of pressure. I don't remember this with Anna. It feesl like I've been ridin a horse all day. In the Rocky Mountains. On a really hot summer day - do the Rockies get really, really hot? I can't stay cool. And, my feet are starting to swell some. It's just not really all that fun anymore.

Total weight gain/ Loss {ya right}: I don't know....the last I checked 7 pounds was gained but I have my next appointment on Tuesday so I'll know what the last 2 weeks have added.

Maternity clothes? Yes!

Have you started to show yet? yes

Labor signs: No

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On - well, I think that ends today. I got it on this morning but at my nap time :) I tried taking it off and it was super hard to get off. :/
Mood? I have my days :)

TTR: centers and potty all day

Last week I was taking Anna to get her picture taken in the bluebonnets at the boerne community center. Anna has centers in her class, science, house center, kitchen center, art center, etc... Well she asked where we were going so I told her to the community center. She got so excited and said, "oh, I love centers!!!!" Lol. She thought this was some new "center" like at school

This weekend we stopped giving Anna candy each time she went to the bathroom so we can told her when she goes all day at school and home that she would get a prize. So, she sat and sat and sat and sat for a good 20 minutes on the potty on Sunday. Finally Blake said, ok, we can try later and she got upset and said, "i will go potty allllll day so I can get a prize!" She took us very literally. :( so we had to explain that when she has no accidents and tells us that she has to potty. So, hopefully, this will garner better potty results. Lol
