Weight gain/loss: 3 pounds this week...give or take. The scale gave me 5 different numbers so I took the lowest. Duh. I'm no fool. Haha. I suppose after 3 weeks of not gaining I can't complain...but it doesn't make me feel any less fat. Total: 23 pounds
Maternity Clothes? Yes and even those are starting to be too tight or too short. This week I actually retired my scrubs and switched to black yoga pants. Problem is I work 5 days a week and only have 1 pair. I'll let you do the math on that one. Yikes.
Sleep: Fine as long as I don't wake up with the worst heartburn ever!
Stretch marks: I shed a tear this week as I confirmed a few tiny little red stretch marks on my belly. So much for all the freakin' cocoa butter...what a sham!
Best moment this week: A man I don't know asked me when I was due. It only took 34 weeks but someone finally noticed I was pregnant...not just a huge fatty. I wanted to hug him.
Movement: Yep he was a moving and shaking to the radio in the car yesterday.
Food cravings: Anything that doesn't give me heartburn. Does Tums count as food??
Gender: Team Blue!
Labor Signs: Nothing yet....but there's this thing that happens called Lightening Crotch. It's about as pleasant as it sounds.
Belly Button in or out? In like Flynn.
What I Miss: Not being hot all the freakin time. If I could find a way to attach a fan to me I would.
What I'm looking forward to: Spending the weekend with my BFF and her little baby girl!
Weekly Wisdom: Resist the urge to punch people who remind you that if you think it's hot out now...just wait till July. Really? As if I wasn't already aware of this...thanks for sharing.
Milestones: I *think* we are actually done buying baby things for now. I got our pack and play and the last of my newborn cloth dipes ordered this week and the hubs assembled the bookshelf/storage piece. I'm sure I will think of something else we HAVE TO HAVE, but for now I feel pretty confident we have all the necessities. Now if only I could get the nursery in order.....

How far along? 33 weeks
Weight gain/loss: Still even steven for the 3rd week in a row! Either my scale is broken or somehow the entire bag of M&Ms I consumed managed to do no damage. Total so far: 20 pounds
Maternity Clothes? Yep. I bought a cute new denim "mini" skirt last week because I miss my usual summer wardrobe! It's probably the last thing I'll buy, I'm just making the rest work until the end!
Best moment this week: My last of four showers....yes four! It was the only one I didn't have to travel to which was wonderful! And I had a blast catching up with some of my KC ladies I hadn't seen in years. Everyone was so generous and I brought home another car full of loot! Baby James is one loved little man!
Movement: I feel more full body movements these days instead of actual kicks. I imagine he's gotta be running out of room in there!
Belly Button in or out? Still in. No real change there.
What I Miss: Wine. I snuck a few sips at the shower yesterday and it was oh so delicious!
What I'm looking forward to: Our glider coming in! We ordered it last week at the big baby sale...however we didn't take into account the shipping time. She said anywhere from 4-6 weeks which is really pushing it for D-Day! Either way I can't wait for it...it's like the Cadillac of chairs!

Weight gain/loss: This week: Nothing again! Total: 20 pounds. I'll take it!
Maternity Clothes? You betcha, still rocking the pull up pants! Yesterday I was wearing my non-maternity maxi dress from last summer but threw a tank on underneath since my cups are well....overflowing. Well the tank is also non-maternity and hit me right about the belly button. Haha. Nice.
Sleep: Pretty good...I had one crappy night where I literally woke up every hour....on the hour. Tried sleeping in the guest room....no dice. Luckily it was just a one time thing!
Stretch marks: I suspect there's something small brewing on my belly. It cannot be confirmed as I can only see them in the mirror...which means they don't technically count right? At least they're tiny and only one or two. Stupid cocoa butter...what good are you!
Best moment this week: It's a toss up this week. Finishing the nursery painting was pretty freaking fantastic....considering it took us 3 different weekends to do 3, yes 3 coats of the cream, tape off and measure the stripes and then do 2 coats of the brown. That's a lot of painting. I also finally cashed in the pre-natal massage gift certificate the hubby gave me for Christmas. It was wonderful....though I could have done without all the chit chat. Doesn't she know I'm here to relax and forget that I'm pregnant...not spend an hour talking about pregnancy and babies with a woman I just met.
Movement: So now that Jamie is big enough some days depending on what position he's in I can actually feel him. I can't confirm what I'm actually feeling, probably back or butt, but it's definitely baby. Well the other night he was being pretty quiet, so I thought I'd see if I could find him in there, sure enough with just a few presses I found him, then apparently nudged a bit too hard and actually pushed him to the other side. It was maybe the weirdest feeling ever.
Food cravings: This week I've been dying for some good Mexican. I've had bean burritos for lunch everyday and killed a thing of Guacamole in one sitting. It was good. Now if I could only figure out how to make a non-alcoholic margarita we'd be in business!
Labor Signs: Nope. Nothing since those weird cramps last week.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I Miss: Standing up without assistance. Getting off the couch is like a work of art these days. Did someone cut the legs off this thing?? I do NOT remember it being so low to the ground!
What I'm looking forward to: Putting the nursery back together! I picked up a window valance yesterday and we're going to buy the glider this weekend! We're making progress people!
Weekly Wisdom: If you have the slightest indication that you may need to pee....just go. Trying to ignore it while doing the dishes will NOT work...it will only result in a mad dash to the bathroom where you may actually start to pee before your pants are fully down and your butt has hit the seat. Looks like I better step up the kegels stat!
Milestones: I think I had my first official stranger comment!! It wasn't a straight forward "when are you due" kind of thing....but she was talking about her kids then nodded at my belly and said she was just trying to warn me about what I was in for. Hey...that's close enough, I will take it!!

Though I must admit, 29 feels pretty old....and way too close to 30.

It's MY Birthday too!!
So far my last 20 something Birthday has been a great one!
In the morning the FedEx man dropped of these lovelies from my hubby
(Ok, so I ordered the diapers myself but I was super stoked to get them)
.....and numerous bday cards plus this awesome gift from my best friend Nikki! Can't wait till I can really put it to good use, I have my fave bottle already chilling in the wine fridge! Only 2 months till I can crack it open!

Weight gain/loss: This week: Nada. Thank. God. Total: 20 pounds. Yuck.
Maternity Clothes? Yes. And those scrubs that were falling down merely 6 weeks ago now practically cut off the circulation in my hips and thighs. Why is it my thighs and ass need to be getting wider?? Last time I checked they had NOTHING to do with my growing baby.
Sleep: Not bad. It would help if our bedroom wasn't so stinkin' hot. Murphy's Law would have it be the ONLY room in the house that's hot as hades....maybe I'll start sleeping in the guest room.
Stretch marks: No
Best moment this week: Having 3 days off was pretty fantastic!
Movement: Slowing down a bit but still pretty active....I imagine he'll start running out of room in there soon.
Food cravings: Dairy Queen ice cream cake which I will be getting Sunday for my birthday! Yay!
Gender: Snips and snails and puppy dog tails (anyone else not really get this nursery rhyme?)
Labor Signs: So I think I finally felt one of those Braxton Hicks contractions everyone talks about...and let me tell you, they're not painless. Unless you feel no pain when it seems someone's jabbed a knife in your side. I had a few over the weekend but nothing since. If this is a preview of real labor...I'm in for a rude awakening!
Belly Button in or out? In. I think at this point I'm in the clear.
What I Miss: My ankles. Somewhere in the last week or so I've lost all resemblence of an ankle bone. I noticed it for this first time while getting a pedicure, I now officially have cankles. Great.
What I'm looking forward to: Actually finishing the nursery this weekend. Well the painting part at least. This project has drug on loooong enough and it's time to get moving!
Weekly Wisdom: When you get random bouts of energy....take advantage of them!
