Bumpdate: {33 Weeks}

I'm still scratching my head and wondering how the heck I've arrived at 33 weeks. It seemed like just yesterday we found out we were expecting. Time really does fly during this third trimester, doesn't it?

Weight Gain:  +1 lb. this week

Baby: I'll get an exact weight on her at tomorrow's weekly biophysical profile appointment (yep - we are going once a week now), but I'm guessing she's at 4 lbs. or more - a healthy girl!

Bathroom pic at work...sorry, no time to take a good photo last night : )

Cravings:  Pickles! I've eaten my weight (and my husband's) in mini dill pickles this week. How stereotypical of a pregnant gal is that? Ha! We've enjoyed steak twice this week, which has tasted oh-so-good. I'm also PUMPED for chili cheese dip while we watch the Razorback game Saturday!

How I'm Feeling: I still have a lot of energy once I get going, though it's been HARD to drag myself out of bed lately. Not the actual waking up, but the physical rolling over and getting up is difficult stuff : ) 

No swelling or shortness of breath still yet, and keeping my fingers crossed I can avoid this until the very end. Morning sickness has returned once again though, and Tuesday, I had to take a Zofran. 

Movement: Good gracious, yes. She's running out of room in there, so I feel everything. At some point last week, she flipped from the breech position to head down, which feels a LOT better on her mama : ) Breech kicks hurt like no other!

Favorite Moment this Week:  It actually happened last Friday, but we scheduled the date for the C-section! October 14th will be Caroline's birthday! Six weeks from Monday, by this time, we'll be holding a BABY GIRL in our arms!!

Sleeping: Sleep? What is this thing you call sleep? Ha! (I'm a pro at going on two hours at this point.)

Clothes: Pants are all maternity, with the exception of leggings and gym shorts, which I quickly put on as soon as I walk in the door from work. Tops are about half maternity, half regular. Dresses are all regular.

Most looking forward to: Our couples baby shower brunch that our friends the Sadlers are hosting for us Sunday. This is our second-to-last baby shower before Caroline gets here, so we plan to enjoy every second of it! (My mom and her friends are also hosting a Sip 'n See back in my hometown after baby girl arrives, which I'm pumped about, too!)

Thankful for: Zantac (the heartburn med) and Zofran (the anti-nausea med). They are my two best friends this week.


Do the DIP!!

Confessional Friday update: I plan to post a few of my favorite dip recipes tomorrow, in honor of football season beginning. BUT, you are more than welcome to do a Confessional post, too. Whatever you decide to write about, the InLinkz link-up stream will be up and going at the usual 7 a.m. time slot.

A lot of y'all seemed to like having the optional topics for each week, so I'll put up the fall schedule next week.

How to join a link up!

In case you are new to blogging and haven't done a link-up before, here's how you participate:

1) Write a post that pertains to the "link-up" topic. Fridays around here are Confessional Fridays and you can find a schedule of topics for each week here. Tomorrow though, I'll be posting dip recipes in honor of the beginning of college football season!

2) After you've written and published your post on Friday, you'll copy and paste the URL of your post into the InLinkz stream here on this blog.

3) And voila! You've linked up!


  1. Yay for baby Caroline's arrival in 6 short weeks! So exciting!:) Still looking adorable as usual, little Mama!

    I don't have any delish dip recipes to share, so will just be doing a regular confession post tomorrow - but will definitely check out the dips you are sharing (and hopefully some that are being shared by other bloggers)! Definitely need yummy ones to have around now that football season is back:)

  2. I love your updates because it gives me so much to look forward to over these next 6 months! I'm out of the first tri now and it seems like it was all such a blur filling out our book to this point!

  3. I second those breech kicks...ouch! My son was a double footling breech delivered by c-section at 37w6d and weighed a whopping 8lbs6oz!!! Keep in mind I'm 5'3" tall and gained a total of 18lbs. There was absolutely no room for my bouncing baby boy to kick except all my major organs! He was big and healthy...almost eleven years ago <3

  4. Thanks for the updates !!! I always enjoy stopping by your blog and seeing how fantastic you look and how much baby Caroline is growing :) She will be here soon.

  5. You are just beautiful!! Seriously. I remember having my little bump and oh how I miss it!
    Can't wait to "meet" your little girl - and before you know it October 14th will be. SO INSANE!!!
    Enjoy your weekend lovely lady :)

  6. Zantac was the only thing that controlled my raging pregnancy heartburn too! Hahaha :)


What'cha got?
