February is Here! 33 Weeks and a Bedding Sneak Peak!

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

How Far Along? 33 weeks, 4 days…45 days to go! It's February 1st meaning we will have a baby in our arms NEXT month!!
Size of Baby Caroline? One website says pineapple, one says honeydew—either way, that baby is getting big! She is over 17 inches and weighs more than 4 pounds
Maternity Clothes? Leggings, yoga pants, long sleeve shirts, and cardigans are my BFF! The weather this week in Nashville is in the 60s so I am busting out non-winter attire and it feels great.
Weight Gain? Still at 25 pounds-I think that scale is going to start creeping up as Caroline starts to gain more weight these next few weeks.  
Stretch Marks? None that I can see! Let’s face it, that big bulge is making it hard to see below the waist these days.
Gender? Baby Girl…I’ve officially gone overboard on the wardrobe. Everyone says I am going to have to change her outfits every3-4 hours because she has so many clothes. You know what they say “like mother, like daughter” ;)
Sleep? This changes daily…one night is great, and the next not so much. Keeping the house colder definitely helps keep me comfortable, though little bit loves to kick all night long.  
Food Cravings? Still with the powdered doughnuts {thanks Shell and Pattie for stocking me up!} as well as cereal and ice cream.  
What I Miss? I am perfectly content—I know that sounds clichĂ©, but I am happy with peanut growing inside me and wouldn’t change it for the world.
Symptoms? I get tired by mid-afternoon now…wishing my company approved of a little siesta break every now and then; also with the achiness, occasional leg cramps, and swelling, and now I know what people are talking about when they mention heartburn-WHOA painful!
Belly Button? 3/4 of the way outie
Best Moment of the Week? Jeff has been in California spending time with his family, so what does that mean? Slumber party time with Mom. She has been staying with me the past few days and I am so thankful she came to the rescue. We've been hard at work each night, stocking up on necessities, working on craft painting projects for the walls, and then we put the crib bedding on Caroline's crib last night. And yes, I promised a sneak peak {because I can't contain my excitement} so here you go: I am in LOVE with the way it's all coming together! Jeff will be home this afternoon and I cannot wait to show him our progress.
