Bumpdate || Thirty-Three

*Thank you to everyone who comments on these bumpdates! I'm taking the cake as worst blogger in America, with literally no variety whatsoever of posts and lack of comment backs. But I promise I read them all, and love the sweet ladies that share their sweet words! Life is very overwhelming at the moment (lesson plans, maternity plans, nursery, getting home late, no planning time at work, being sick, etc.) and I'm normally reading these when I get a spare 2 minutes which is rare. But I appreciate everybody, I promise! 

How far along: 33 weeks

Due Date: December 17, 2015

Baby is the size of: She's the size of durian, which really means nothing to me because I have no idea what that is. So to put it in terms that are relatable - she's about the size of a honeydew melon. Around 18 inches, maybe 19ish. She may grow up to a full inch this week! And she's about 5 pounds.

Symptoms: More lower abdominal achiness than normal, so I'm sure she's packing on those pounds and growing in length. Belly button is still trying to pop out, but not quite yet. Lots of potty breaks. Some mild leg cramping while I'm sleeping. Feeling really hormonal at times.

Gender: A GIRL. Post here

Name: Harper Elizabeth. Post here.

Movement: Rolling around as I type this! She's running out of leg room these days. I feel her pushing outwards more often, and can almost distinguish body parts, but not yet. She's a pretty active little lady.

Nursery: SO MUCH PROGRESS! And I'm so excited! Curtains up, side table bought, shower gifts put away, drawers beginning to fill, closet cleaned out, closet organizer bought, and so much more! I'm waiting on her crib sheet - it should be this week! And unfortunately, lost the battle of the changing pad cover (which is ridiculous Etsy) - you know what I'm talking about if you follow me on Instagram. Ugh!

Maternity Clothes: I don't even like clothes. I feel like a beached whale most days, and everything just cuts in all the wrong places. Yoga pants and tank tops are my favorite - because I get so hot.

Sleep: Sleeping perfect. I can't get enough of it. Some weird dreams occasionally, the leg cramps go away quickly, and potty breaks I can handle. I fall right back to sleep.

Best Moment This Week: Hearing our sweet little girl's heartbeat at the doctor on Monday. She's still kicking butt. We want her to keep getting stronger!

Missing Anything: Sandwiches, of course. Not feeling like a beached whale. Wearing jeans that don't cut into my sides or fall down all day long.

Cravings/Aversions: I don't really crave anything (minus my sandwich obsession). Chocolate always sounds good, but then again, it did before I was pregnant.

Mood: Battling a stomach bug all week made the week not so fun and frustrating since there wasn't much I could do about it, but let it work itself out. Feeling better by the weekend, and especially excited about the nursery progress!

Husband: The BEST!! Helped take care of me all week when I wasn't feeling good. Helped in the nursery a lot! And helped me get in and out of the bathtub, which may not seem like much, but always is so sweet when he takes care of me.

Looking Forward To: Friday at 3:15pm, when my weekend starts because this one went by way too quickly!
