Maternity clothes: yessss

Stretch marks: not any from pregnancy, I don't think

Sleep: getting up to tinkle about every 2.5 hours. It's very disruptive. 

Best moment this week: we started our weekly appointments this week, complete with a weekly BPP (biophysical profile) to make sure she's doing all the things she should be doing in there. And she is!

Looking forward to: getting the rest of the nursery furniture

Belly Button in or out? Definitely getting stretched but still very much in

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: stressed this week due to work - but Christmas is in sight!

How far along: 33 weeks

Baby Size: the baby is the size of a honeydew (19 inches, 4.5 pounds)

Weight gain: up 1.5 pounds from last week; up about 11 pounds overall

Maternity clothes: yes!

Stretch marks: no

Sleep: this getting up to pee 3 times a night thing is getting old!

Best moment this week: at our 2nd BPP ultrasound this week, baby girl was crazy active and we got to her practicing her breathing at the same time she had hiccups. It was pretty darn adorable. 

Looking forward to: making some progress in the nursery this weekend!

What I miss: sleeping on my back. Good sleep in general. 

Movement: SO much this week. I can tell she's starting to run out of room because her movements are so much more pronounced. 

Food cravings: Christmas cookies

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope

Gender: GIRL!

Labor Signs: no

Symptoms: blood pressure was even higher this week: no bueno. No swelling or protein in urine, so we're hopeful that I'm not developing pre-eclampsia -- but to be sure, I have to do a 24-hour urine sample test this weekend as a baseline. 

Belly Button in or out? still in!

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: happy!!

Nursery: the glider, bookcase and wall shelf have all been delivered this week

Prayer for Baby: Lord, thank you for this miraculous gift you have given to us. At this Christmastime, I can relate more to Mary than I ever have before and understand more than ever what a sacrifice you truly made of giving your Son. We are hopeful, thankful and so very excited about this baby girl: thank you for entrusting her to us. I pray you be with her as she grows stronger each day, keeping her safe in the womb for the next few weeks until she enters this world. Amen.
