Week 33 Bumpdate

This past week was so wonderful that is definitely deserves a highlights recap! Thursday we had our 32 week check up and Miss Caroline is looking great! Our doctor is really happy with her progress and I am really enjoying seeing her every two weeks now! Friday afternoon my family arrived in town and we had a delicious lunch at Cabo Fish Taco, revealed our nursery progress and had a late dinner at Bad Daddy’s. Saturday my mom treated my sister and I to mani/pedis at Polished and blow outs at Blo before my BaByQ shower! The shower was more amazing than anything I could have ever wanted and we had the best time celebrating baby Caroline with 40 of our friends and family! On Sunday we had brunch at Leroy Fox with my parents before they flew home. And last night we took our first class at the hospital – infant CPR! So we had a jammed pack week filled with so many special moments!

  How far along: 33 weeks

Baby Size: A pineapple {my most recent craving} and is 17 inches, 4.25 lbs!

Weight gain: 25 lbs

Maternity clothes: So glad to finally wear my coral maternity maxi dress {pictured in bump photo} for my shower over the weekend. Love it? You can score it from ASOS Maternity for $30 {here}!

Stretch marks: No, and thankful!


Sleep: Depends on the night. Caroline loves to play around 3 am for a good solid hour before going back to sleep.


Gender: Lots and lots of pink came home with us from our shower.

Movement: Oh yes and Caroline is a dancing machine. I just love feeling her move around in my tummy.

Best moment this week: Celebrating Caroline over a BaByQ shower with amazing friends and family, spending the weekend with my family, crossing off our infant CPR class last night at the hospital, and a great checkup.

Looking forward to: Our maternity shoot this weekend!

Food cravings: Still fresh orange juice (with lots of pulp), pineapple and mango!! Loving fresh fruit. And still eating an egg sandwich every single morning.


Anything making you queasy or sick: No.


Labor Signs: Not yet, but expecting Braxton Hicks any time now…


What I miss: My energy, bending over without feeling like I’m going to topple, sweating at the gym and vodka in my lemonade.


Symptoms: Back pain, heartburn, shortness of breath, tiredness, etc.


Nursery: Almost done and the hubby deserves a huge shout out for lining the dresser drawers with the prettiest paper for me this week!

Belly Button in or out? Pretty much even at this point and super sensitive.

Wedding rings on or off? On and no swelling yet!

Mood: Anxious to meet our baby girl!

Workouts: Just one workout this week. 

Prayer for Caroline: 


Dear Lord, Thank you for the blessing of being pregnant with Caroline. Your Word says everyone good and perfect gift comes from above. I acknowledge You as the giver of life. I can’t wait to meet this little girl and will praise You for as long as I live! In Jesus’ name. Amen. 

I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will life up my hands. – Psalm 63:4

    YES on the belly sensitivity! Same here. You are looking fab and you were positively radiant on Saturday! What a steal on that Asos dress … I have added so many of their maternity items to my cart and just never pulled the trigger. Now I'm having regret for not getting a few pieces!
