33 weeks!

*How far along?: 33 weeks 1 day

*Weight gain: +2lbs. so back up to 15lbs.

*Sleep: it's never been worse. Brogan is back to sleeping through the night (thank GOODNESS!) but every time I get a Braxton Hicks contraction, it must press on my bladder and I wake up. Every stinkin' time. Tadd downloaded this app onto our phones that monitors your sleep at night. It graphs when you are awake, dreaming, and in a deep sleep. It's kinda hilarious how little sleep I actually get.

*Stretch marks: still none, but I keep looking. Could I just be so pale that they don't show up? :)

*Best moment of this week: baby wise- hearing the heartbeat again and knowing that she's doing great. Me wise- going out with three sweet friends Thursday night. I could have seriously sat and talked to them all night long. I really miss the adult interaction that comes with working. But of course I would miss BroBro even more if I was working so...

*Movement: yes and right on my sciatic nerve. I'll be walking in a store and BAM! my buttcheek feels like it's been electrocuted. It's all I can do to not grab it and yell.

*Labor Signs: no, and it scares me to death to think about going into labor again. I think I'm more afraid this time b/c I know what to expect :(

*Food cravings: This week I really REALLY wanted a steak and got my wish granted last night. Tadd and I celebrated Valentines Day a week late and went to the Texas Roadhouse where I got the Filet (ooh lala) and dipped each piece in butter. Glorious beef! And since my iron is low, I didn't feel bad about eating it all :)

*What I miss most: same ol' answers here: sleep, energy, being able to see my feet

*What I'm looking forward to: seeing what our baby girl looks like. I wonder how much she'll look like Brogan?

*Measuring: According to my 32 week checkup, I'm now measuring at 33 weeks (right on track!) but that means that my belly grew 5cm. in 2 weeks??? I mean, I do feel like I've grown a lot lately but sheesh! I asked the doctor and he said that this was a normal "growth spurt" time for the baby.

*Milestones: Baby's kidneys are fully developed and she weighs around 4.5-5lbs. (

32 weeks with my friend Shanda

We were trying to re-create this picture from our first pregnancies. I look the same size and I'm 38 weeks here! I have a feeling this baby is gonna be bigger than BroBro's little 6lb.7oz. self. Oh boy.

I still can't get over how little of weight you've gained so far! That's just amazing! Makes it so much easier to lose :)

I laughed out loud at your "my buttcheek feels like it's been electrocuted"!! I'm still rolling! :o)

Hoping you get more sleep soon... you are going to need all the energy you can get!

Praying for you!
