33 weeks!

33 weeks and I can officially say I'm having a baby next month. Or, I should say I'm DUE next month because I am so afraid of jinxing myself and this kid will come in January. That would be bad. It is so crazy to me that I am just a few weeks away from "any day now" and that to me is when shit gets real. I feel like baby showers usually get people in freak out mode, but for me its going to be when the doctor says "you can go any day now." Just knowing at any given, unpredictable moment, labor could start. Whether it be contractions or my water breaking, not knowing when it could happen freaks me out. I'm not really sure when this "any day now" is, but I'm thinking 37/38ish weeks just because at that point you're considered full term (by the old standard since they just changed it last week) Crazy!

Baby size: Durian Fruit... never have I ever seen one of these before.
Any symptoms?  back pain, just a little swelling, frequent bathroom breaks (I went 14 times yesterday from 12am-11:46pm. I'm serious, I counted.), Braxton Hicks
Cravings? fried chicken
Favorite part this week? baby shower, duh!
Least favorite part this week? back pain just freaking blows
Boy or Girl? BOY!! :)
Names? Tucker Paul it is!!

Swelling hasn't been too bad, but it is happening still and I'm sure it will just continue from here on out. I'm almost positive that I'm experiencing Braxton Hicks. I've felt pretty crampy a few times this week, and am currently, so that has been fun.

This weekend should be interesting though. Its the annual Michigan trip with the women of Danny's family. Danny and I went there for the first half of our Babymoon. The LAST trip I'll ever take without having to miss a small human being. I mean, I miss Diesel when I'm gone. Hell, there are work days where I miss Diesel. But a 2-legged child requires so much more work and planning and attention. Regardless, they will both be fine next year with their dad. Anywho, I say it will be interesting because walking more than a lap around the grocery store is enough to land me on the couch for 12 hours. Soooo, a weekend shopping trip will be something. Not to mention the 4 hour drive up there. I'm in good hands though because Danny's sister is an OB nurse (a great one at that!) and if anything should happen or I just don't feel right, she is the person I'd call anyways and she'll be with me the whole trip. Oh, and I'm taking my Snoogle. I didn't take it on the Babymoon and what a mistake that was. And that was nearly 10 weeks ago!

Ok, I'm out now. Happy Grey's Anatomy day!! :)


  1. Ooooh! A trip to Michigan?! That's where I live! Have a great trip! :)

  2. You are the cutest little pregnant lady!!

  3. 33 weeks?! Shut the front door! Where did the time go?
    And I love that you counted your pee sessions yesterday. That's totally something I would do. ;)

  4. I am a teacher and the teacher next door to me informed me one day that I had peed 8 times during the school day while I was pregnant with Kennedy. She knew because she had to watch my class! Hang in there! You are adorable!!!!
