33 weeks

33 weeks along today... phew, these 7 day weeks are really getting short!  didn't i just write one of these the other day???

How far along?  33 Weeks
Total weight gain:  i don't know and i don't care.  i'll find out again next week at my 34 week appointment.  however, on a good note, my appetite has decreased dramatically!
Maternity clothes?  yup.  sure snuff.
Stretch marks?  yes.  boo asked today if today if the "one" above my belly button was buttercup's foot.  ;)  i think she may have seen this picture posted in the gratituesday post i posted today but pre-dated to last tuesday.  (sneaky, i know)
Sleep:  sleeping without my hubby this week.. so in some ways it's better (more room), but in other ways it's worse (less support).  i miss him though, so i'll say "no good" just to go along with my pregnancy updates thus far.  
Best moment this week:  seeing my sweet pea movin' from the frontal view... it was so precious i almost cried.  (see above link "this picture" to get more details.)
Miss Anything?  i sure miss my hubalub!
Movement:  again, see above link to my gratituesday post.  it's all about movement!!!
Food cravings:  i have decreased my cravings for sugar (thank the lord) and i don't think i'm really craving anything lately.  i made some of my gramma's parker house rolls the other day.  they were good.  but they gave me heartburn because they're so sweet.  that didn't detour me from making some of her cinnamon rolls the next day though...  thankfully they weren't that good.  the kids liked them though.  i had two today though and found out i just like them better the next day, not straight out of the oven.  -kinda like cookies!  hmmmm... never knew.  but i limited myself.  ... i could've eaten the whole batch!
Anything making you queasy or sick:  not really.
Gender:  Girl ...and perhaps she doesn't have a name anymore.  aren't you glad we didn't share?!
Labor Signs:  Nope  (here's another hidden gratituesday post about that though)
Symptoms:  heartburn, unpredictable sleep, and sharp cervical pain.  other than that feeling pretty good.  making it through the days without a nap...  or dire need of one either... things are good!
Belly Button in or out?  out.  and it is showing through clothes now too.  (see pictures)
Wedding rings on or off?  off, but i looked for a new one last week after posting... 
Happy or Moody most of the time:  i'm happy to report, HAPPY!  i must be feeling better. 
Looking forward to:  otter pop's flight arrival tomorrow evening!  i have missed him SO MUCH... i can't believe i have to do this again in march.  ugh!  i'll just treasure our time together even more.  (yes, i'm a sap.  yes, i love my husband!)

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
