Baby Bump Friday: 33 Weeks

My profile amuses me.

This morning while we were getting ready for work I read Mr. A the description of my 33rd week of pregnancy from the app on my phone.  I said “According to this, he’s growing 1/2 pound a week and I’m gaining 1 pound a week.  So I’m going to be more tired because I will be huge all of a sudden.”    Mr. A pointed out that the “all of a sudden” ship has sailed.  Touché husband, now go sleep on the couch.

I remember being 24 weeks and feeling all excited that I had a baby bump.  Let us reflect shall we?

Back when I could touch my toes.

I AM A HOUSE.

In additional news, Miles is currently heads up; of course he is.  He is not one to perform on demand, his head is planted firmly up at my ribs.  This could very well lead to my having a c-section, but I’m not really worried about it.  This whole pregnancy thing has instilled in my the firm knowledge that I have absolutely no control over what the birth process will look like.  We are taking a natural birth class, so maybe that would be a goal, but mostly I am learning all about the different things that could happen during the process so if it does happen I won’t be surprised.  Either way I get a baby right?

Size of baby: 17 inches.  A pineapple.

Total Weight Gain: Somewhere in the 25-30 lbs range.

Maternity Clothes: No joke, walking to work this morning I felt a little bit of skin exposed from MY MATERNITY SHIRT.  That is a new level of humongous.
Gender: Little Man Baby
Movement: My stomach is like that scene from Alien.  Mr. A spent a ton of time last night watching the waves and kicks coming from Miles.  I think he’s surprised it doesn’t hurt, the movement can seem a bit strong.
Sleep: I’ve been sleeping great.  Seriously.  I’ve also been sleeping with less pillows than I had been.  One pillow between my legs does the trick.  I have no idea why that would be the case now versus a couple of months ago, but it’s true.
What I miss: I’m just going to say it… “adult time” with my husband.  I mean, I’m sure some people can be rock stars in this arena until baby is born, but I just get confused about how things would work with a GINORMOUS 4lb basketball attached to me.  We are way past the point of being able to pretend there isn’t a 3rd person in the room…  Looks like we’ll be resigning ourselves to high-fives and hand holding until after Miles is here… which is totally ok with me because have I mentioned how long it’s been since I’ve been able to actually see my lady bits?  It’s been a while.
Cravings: OMG.  This week I had a craving for scallops and a chocolate-banana milkshake.  While we couldn’t get me both at the same time I did have a chocolate-banana milkshake from The Counter on Wednesday and I just about died.  It was the most incredible thing I’ve ever tasted.
Symptoms: Overwhelming ginormous-ness.
What I’m looking forward to: This weekend we’re getting a new couch!  That doesn’t make me so uncomfortable I want to stab people!  Hooray!!!  (I’m also going to find a way to get another of those chocolate-banana milkshakes.  Bliss here I come.)
Missed an update?  Wanna see my belly explode?

  1. You are not “humongous!” You are ADORABLE! Seriously, look at you. Adorable.

    I am so glad Miles isn’t hurting you with all his movement. We like to watch the waves and ripples in my tummy, too, but sometimes? It’s downright painful. Kid is strong, and I’m scared for him to get bigger and stronger!

    (You still = adorable.)

  2. You are super cute. I love that you are not stressing too much over how the birth will go down. You’re right, it will be however it will be and at the end of it all you get a baby. Exciting!
