thirty-three weeks. bumpdate!


the weeks are not slowing down & my to-do list isn't getting much shorter.  but i'm realizing i'll never really be "ready" for this little boy so shoot, bring him on.  i'm so excited to meet this little guy!

this week i feel like we officially moved into the "baby is trying to bust out of my belly" stage.  his movements are so big that i swear he's doing full flips in there & contorting my stomach all over the place in the process.  i love it though... i love feeling him squirm around in there & i get uneasy when he's been still for too long.  movement makes me happy!

sleep is tough.  i position myself to sleep & then literally don't move an inch all night until sam leaves for work in the morning.  movement in bed is so painful that i can't do it in my sleep.  when he wakes me up in the morning most of whatever side i'm laying on is asleep & throbbing so i have to push myself up, carefully shift everything to the other side {legs, belly, hips, supporting pillow} & lay back down.  IT HURTS.  it literally feels like every bone in my hips/pelvic area is broken.  the weight of my belly feels like a bowling ball & sometimes my hips pop & send sharp pains down my legs.  so that's fun.

then, when it's time to get up i have to lean on the bed or bathroom counter until my body wakes up or else my legs give out.  less than seven weeks left.

don't get me wrong, there are parts of pregnancy i love.  i love carrying this little boy with me everywhere i go & feeling him move, watching him grow via my growing belly & sporting the bump.  i do feel like i have a "pregnancy glow" just because of the excitement & anticipation that pregnancy brings.  it's fun.

but physically?  i do not make a good pregnant girl.  some people seem to go through their pregnancies in stride but my body really does not fare well.  so much that sam & i talk a lot about whether i could ever physically do this again.  he says no.  especially because this pregnancy has seemed to cause a bit more pain than with parker, so who knows what #3 would be like.  it's such a hard call to make.

anywho, the good news is that with parker my body seemed to recover quickly.  once he was outta there the ligaments tightened right back up & my pelvis seemed to go back to normal.  seriously hoping that's the case this time too.

you guys, less than seven weeks left.  that's like a month & a half.  we're gonna be meeting this little boy before we know it!

  3. Pregnancy is amazing in that way - the pain that you're willing to endure to have a baby. Can't wait to meet the little one though!

  6. Oh my goodness girl, I feel ya. Pregnancy is so hard!!! I know many people that just breeze through 4, 5, 6+ kids and don't seem to have a care in the world. Ugh. So jealous of those people. For me?? Pregnancy is ridiculously hard. Vomiting and throwing up for 20 weeks and then all the soreness and aches & pains for the last trimester really takes its toll on me, so I totally know what you mean about not knowing if you could get through it again! Blah.
    In better news.... you are SO close! The finish line is nearing and you will be holding your little dude in your arms so soon. All of the pregnancy woes will be a distant memory! :)

  10. 7 weeks left that is exciting!!! I know every prego woman is different, but my first two pregnacies were aweful I was so sick, in pain, and could hardly move. But with my third it was 100X better. Don't get me wrong it wasn't easy...but it was a lot better and worth it!

  11. My second pregnancy with Charlie was much more painful. By the end, I had to sleep sitting up in the living room because my joints hurt so badly. But right as he was delivered, I let out a big sigh. My body immediately felt better. The body is pretty darn amazing. And then you forget about it and think you could have another one. :) Funny how that works... Hang on a little longer! Good luck with the home stretch!

  12. Oh man, I am right there with you! I'm thankful we had already decided this is my last pregnancy. That would be a hard decision to make in this state! :) Hang in there, they will be here before we know it!

  14. Glad to hear I am not the only one that has leg that feel like they are going to give out when I get up in the morning. I am 31 weeks today and the pain is 10 fold compared to my first two pregnancies. Good luck!
