[she is 33 weeks pregnant]


How far along: 33 weeks
Size: Honeydew Melon
Symptoms: Tired... all the time. I'm in a perpetual state of zoning out. It's ok to laugh at this because I certainly do.
Prepping for baby: Thanks to Amazon Prime day and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I have loaded up on all kinds of goodies for her. I probably did not need most of it, but it was such a good deal and well, you can't pass that up (or at least I can't)...
Stretch marks: I looked and I'm still in the clear.
Sleep: Sleep got weirder this week. I guess my body is preparing for late night feedings. I completely  wake up around 2:30-3am and don't fall back asleep until around 5am. And then I'm wide awake 2 hours later. It's so strange. This is why I'm now a zombie. ;)
Movement: She's moving and wiggling around. She keeps her head close to my heart for the most part and I feel her little limbs everywhere.
Cravings: A sprinkle donut. But I haven't caved. Blood sugars are awesome and she told me I can cut down to checking my sugar to a few times a week. I'm still madly in love with peaches. I eat them daily.
Changes from last week: We keep getting bigger. And the sleep shift is new.
Best moment of the week: I posted late because we had another growth ultrasound scan on Thursday. It's so magical seeing her on the screen, opening her mouth, her tiny hands on her face, her cute feet everywhere (even up by her head), shadows of her hair whisping in the fluid. She had her hands all over her face for the 4D images but we were able to see her precious face. Josh said she has my nose and lips. We both teared up. Miracles are real and the Lord is just blowing us away already. She's also measuring to my exact due date and her fluid levels are perfect. I may look small to everyone from the outside, but she's measuring right on point and is approx. 4lbs 9oz. Praise to God for the gestational diabetes not affecting her adversely.
Looking forward to: Beside the due date where we get to finally meet her, I'm cherishing every moment Josh and I share. It's not long until we are an official party of three. We worked really hard on our marriage and are closer than ever. I don't know where I would be without his awesome support during this whole process. He's been so involved and I am so grateful.
Scripture for the week: Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. - Philippians 4:8  ---  Focusing on the positives is something I've really had to train my brain to do. It's too easy to get caught up in negativity or fear. There is too much goodness to waste time on things that aren't real. God has surely blessed us and I choose to find Him in every situation. He is good all the time and all the time, He is good.
