33 Weeks!

How Far Along?  33 Weeks!!!  It seems like he's almost here!

Weight Gain?  Yes...gaining weight - check!  I know a lot of my bloggy friends have gained less weight but then my IRL (in real life) friends and family have gained the same or more.  So, figuring this will most likely be the only time I get this big...I'll say it loud and proud....up a total of 35 pounds!  Don't believe me...check out the progression :)

13 Weeks

16 Weeks

20 Weeks

25 Weeks

33 Weeks

Maternity Clothes?  Yup, just went out this weekend and got a couple more tops for work.  I felt like a was wearing the same set of clothes over and over.  Case in point, notice my 33 week picture....recognize the top from 16 weeks :)

Symptoms?  I definitely can tell I'm carrying more weight around.  It gets tricky moving around the same as I did before.  I can't even sit on the couch the same!  My feet have started to swell a little, but Tim says he doesn't really notice.  I'm not wearing my rings anymore either.  It's sad not to have them on.  

Movement?  Still lots of movement and he's started getting hiccups a lot more too.  Hiccups are too cute! 

Sleep?  It's getting trickier moving from my left side to my right and etc.  But overall, not much to complain about.

Food Cravings?  No more than usual.  I still have my sweet tooth but I'm not indulging it as much as around the holidays.

Best Moment of the Week?  We Tim got the nursery painted!!!!  I helped with the measuring and taping and Tim did a wonderful job painting!!!

Tim painted all nine canvases with Cubs logos.  This wall has the different cubby bears, their newest logo on the navy background, and the "W".  It's for the flag that flies over Wrigley Field when the Cubs win.  And it also stands for William.  Too perfect.

On the opposite wall are the remaining four canvases.  Their current pinstripe logo, the Wrigley Field sign, the Harry Carey logo, and the 1914 logo that we love.  We currently have our bouncer seat in the spot where the glider will go.  It's supposed to be in by the end of the week.

We painted the far wall with pinstripes.  Now I just need to decide what to do for curtains...

And our special ceiling fan!  We even switched out the cords with ones that have little baseballs on it!
 What I Miss?  I miss seeing our baby boy.  Going so long in between ultrasounds is making me miss him so much!  With all our issues and getting so many ultrasounds, its hard to do the "normal" ultrasound thing.  Three more weeks and we'll finally get to peek in on him again....I can't wait! 

I got little onesie stickers for him too.  They came in the mail last week.  I don't know if you've seen these, but you place them on a onesie and then you can have pictures of him every month to see how much he's grown.  Once I saw them, I knew they were too cute to pass up!

What I'm Looking Forward To?  My friends are throwing me a baby shower on Sunday.  I just saw the invites and they are too cute!  Baseball themed and even little Cubs onesies on them.  I'm excited!  It comes on a good weekend too.  I don't have to work and I am actually getting a three day weekend!  I just won't know what to do with myself!

How Big is Baby?  Our weekly email updates estimate over 4 pounds and over 17 inches long!

The nursery looks amazing:) My husband would just love it...He is a huge baseball fan...this time of year him and his friends are all getting ready for the fantasy baseball crap:)....me on the other hand not so into it but this is favorite time of year pre season...Oh men.

I hope this doesnt sound rude at all because you are the tiniest thing but def ONLY the baby belly has grown...its like your all belly:) To cute but def this last trimester is catching up with me to...I think its these boys trying to get as big as they can before their big debut

P.s. where did you get your onsie stickers they are super cute

I know what you mean by "all belly"....I'm interested to see how big he measures at our ultrasound at 36 weeks! He's sure made himself at home in there!

I got my onesie stickers off etsy...they have tons to pick from!

Love nursery and hope all is well. Could you please tell me how far apart the pinstripes are?
