33 Week Bumpdate

At 33 weeks the little munchkin is the size of a pineapple or a durian fruit!  I just spent a few minutes researching the history of a durian fruit....fascinating!   
*Before I get started I would just like to point out that I am wearing actual pants in this photo, and not leggings.  

Summer officially feels like a thing of the past.  Reality has slapped me in the face, I'm beyond exhausted!  In a way I am glad that things are so busy.  Time is going fast, and at this point I am getting very anxious!  I'm just so ready to meet this little lady, and it seems like she is ready to come out and meet us too!  Seriously, it's like she is trying to bust out of there.  I've been describing her movements as "violent", but Stephen doesn't "like when I talk about his daughter that way"!  

Not only am I hoping these next 7 weeks go by quickly because I so badly want to meet my little girl, I am also getting more and more uncomfortable by the minute (dramatic)!  My hips are so sore, my feet hurt (no swelling yet), and my lower back is shot.  Not only do I feel like an old lady when I get up and down, but I look like one hobbling around!  Usually I am okay when I wake up in the morning, and then it is all downhill from there.  By 3:00 I am just so physically and mentally drained.  My goal has been leaving work as close to on time as I can, but it's so not happening.  There is too much going on as we try to kick off a new school year.  This is not an ideal time to relax...I'm trying to though believe me.  I'm also trying to take it one day at a time, and not get worked up over the insane amounts of phone calls I need to return, e-mails, and scheduling requests that are piling up.  Somehow it will all come together, I'm not stressing over it (yet).  

It's true what they say about everything coming full circle by the end of your pregnancy.  I am back to feeling queasy, losing my appetite at night, headaches, taking frequent trips to the bathroom, waking up every hour, and having unnecessary crying episodes almost daily!  It is like the first trimester all over again except I have gained 28 pounds, and I am getting beat up from within.  Regardless, I still feel like I'm walking on a cloud from all of the excitement!  It's so worth it!  

I love this picture of my cousin Jen trying to feel Baby Girl move, it didn't take long for her to experience it!  My cousin Kristen felt her too!  They kept saying "that is SO weird"!  It is pretty weird, I have to agree!
Another picture I have to share....can't get over this adorable ladybug "diaper mobile" that my Aunt Sherry, and cousin Nikki made for us!!!  I'm not sure I have the heart to take it apart, EVER!
Happy "Bump" Day!!!!
