Week 33 Bump Update

I may sound like a broken record, but I can't believe another week has already passed!  I can still remember hitting week 20 so clearly - to now be 13 weeks past that is incredible!  To be perfectly honest, though, I don't feel much closer to baby coming than I did at week 20.  I'm not the most patient person around, I admit it :)

Logically I know that the next few weeks will fly by so I'm just focusing on enjoying this time left in being pregnant.  Every kick feels like a tiny miracle happening inside me and although Jake and I want to have more kids, nothing is guaranteed so I'm going to let myself enjoy this time while still looking forward to meeting our little one!

This past week was great in so many ways!  My stomach seemed to have a mini Tasmanian Devil inside it most days - I could seriously just look at any given time and see baby rolling, punching and squirming around.  Some of these movements are starting to bring some minor twinges of pain, which I'm not the world's biggest fan of, but I'll just call them the beginning of preparation for labor and delivery - that will definitely be much more painful!  The reward at the end will definitely be worth all the pain though :) 

Jake and I finally go the nursery put back in order!  The walls are painted, the outlet covers have been re-attached, the closet organizer is back up and the furniture has moved out of the middle of the room.  Baby's clothes are hanging in the closest right now and I love taking any excuse I can find to take a peek in the room - it's finally starting to feel like a baby's room!  There is definitely still laundry to be done, things to be put away and things to be purchased, but for now we're trucking right along and I love it!

Another thing that's trucking right along?  My baby bump!

Here I am as of 33 weeks!

Some other updates from the week:

- I had my next ob appointment on Monday and everything looked great!  Baby's heartbeat was going strong - just another 2 weeks until my next appointment!
- I scheduled maternity photos for Jake and I and we took those this week.  I got a couple sneak peek pictures and I love them!  I can't wait to get the entire disc so I can see all the pictures!  Jake and I are both pretty bad about remembering to take any pictures together at all, so I wanted to make sure we documented this phase of our lives and marriage - and we definitely did that!  In a couple months our family pictures will be growing in size and cuteness factor, but for now it's great to have some that are just the two of us (with a rounded belly showing what's to come!)

My week 34 check in will have many more exciting things to share - I can't wait!!
