33 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 33 weeks

Baby Size: According to my BabyBump app, Harper is about the size of a pineapple (yay for a fruit I recognize!). She should be around 17 inches and weigh approximately 4.25 pounds.

Total Weight Gain: I go to the doctor tomorrow and I'll find out for sure. I had gained about 25 pounds at my last appointment but then I lost around five pounds when I had food poisoning. Though from the looks of my swollen lower half, I'd say it's safe to assume I've added all of that water weight back on. So since I'm averaging about a pound a week, I'd say I've probably gained around 27 pounds at this point. But I'll let you know next week!

Maternity Clothes: I'm still able to mix it up. For the most part, I wear maternity clothes to work because they're just more comfortable as I have to bend and squat down a lot to assist my students. However, when I'm at home, I lounge around in all of my t-shirts and pre-prego yoga pants and athetic shorts. Yay for elastic waist bands :P

Stretch Marks? Still none!

Sleep: I've been having trouble sleeping the last few days :( I go to sleep really early and sleep amazingly well until in the wee hours of the morning when I wake up and can't go back to sleep. I guess my body is learning to run on five hours of sleep! 

Best Moment This Week: Having our first baby shower this past weekend! Harper got some of the most adorable things! I can't wait for her to get here so she can use them (:

Miss Anything? Normal looking legs :(

Movement: Harper is still quite the wiggle worm. Though, she still keeps most of her movements to the evening and morning hours. I rarely feel her during the day. Let's hope that isn't an indication of what her sleeping habits are going to be like when she arrives!

Food Cravings: I can't think of anything particular that I had to have this past week! 

Gender: A Girl {Harper Londyn Holt}

Labor Signs: No

Symptoms: My acid reflux is still there but thankfully, I can still stop it with Zantac 150. I've also had lots of trouble with my feet, ankles, and legs swelling. My legs look like tree trunks and by the end of the day, my shoes don't fit because my feet are so swollen :( But on the bright side, the doctor says that is the way to be because when Harper arrives, I'll drop half my weight in just a few days when my body sheds all the water. So I'll take the extra water if it'll help me lose the weight sooner :P

Belly Button In or Out? In

Wedding Rings On or Off? On

Mood: Excited

Looking Forward to: Meeting our future son-in-law (yes, Harper's husband has already been picked out for her!). Some of our best friends are having their little boy today at 11:30! We'll be going to see him tomorrow morning before my doctor's appointment. I can't wait to hold him! It's going to be weird holding him though knowing that that will be Harper we'll be holding in just six or seven weeks from now!


  1. Haha have fun meeting your SIL :) I'm getting to the same point with sleep. It's such a bummer but I think you're right, it's our bodies prepping us for little sleep.

  2. My little guy met his future little "wifey" two months after he was born. haha. We shall see. Right now, they are both learning how to share, rather than fall in love:-) Although, they do like to hold hands! xoxo


Hearing from you ladies always make my day, so please let me know you stopped by!
