33 weeks!

During the third trimester I feel I like I've spent the majority of my time in the bathroom or trying to find something to wear that I fits/I feel comfortable in. This final stretch is daunting and sad all at the same time!
How far along: 33 weeks

Baby Size: This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds and has passed the 17-inch mark (about the size of a pineapple).

Baby's progress: He/She is rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his/her skeleton is hardening. The bones in the baby's skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him/her to fit through the birth canal. (The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are born with a conehead-like appearance.) These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his/her brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

Weight gain: Unsure at this point!

Stretch Marks: Still none!

Sleep: Hanging in there still. Getting sleepy throughout the day though, so if I am able and I feel tired, I make sure to rest.

Gender: No idea! :)

Movement: Who knows if this is true, but anytime Will or I talk to the baby it stops moving and then if we stop talking, it starts moving. I know for sure that it knows our voices.

Best Moment this week: Just being so close... every moment we have left I am trying to treasure, but we can't wait to meet our baby!

Looking forward to: Warmth :)
Food Cravings: No real cravings.

Symptoms: Using the bathroom, shortness of breath, thirsty all the time, can't put my shoes on by myself, rolling out of bed is hard, and serious nesting!   <-----still the same! All the joys of the final trimester!

Things that suck: Can't complain!
Things that don't suck: Again, being so close to meeting our baby!
