33 weeks!

Sorry for all the slacking, it's just that I had to finish up GRAD SCHOOL and everything. But now it is all done!! Hooray!!!!!! Tomorrow is official graduation, and we might even post some pictures of that, too.

The boy is getting BIG and his bones are hardening, which makes for some pretty mighty thumps in the belly! And he's terribly good at getting the hiccups at 3:30 a.m. Oh, and he's also decided that I need to eat a bowl of cereal between 4-5 a.m. every morning for the past few days, but after that I'm free to go back to sleep. So he's not a total slave driver.

On to the belly!

33 Weeks!

Psych! I'm totally sucking it in here...
Here's the real 33 week belly!

Round like the moon...
The whole enchilada. Mmm...enchiladas....

30 weeks!

Yes, we now have 3/4 of a baby! Holy moly. Less than 10 weeks to go until the due date, and less than 7 weeks until we're considered "full term". EEEEEKKK!!! So much shopping to do before then! AAAACCCKKK!

When we saw the midwives last week, everything was looking great. I had gained 4 lbs since the last appointment (3 weeks prior, with a 21 lb gain total) and the bebe appeared to be head-down and in the perfect position. So we told him he better stay that way or there would be repercussions, in the form of bacon denial.

The babe and I have also started seeing the chiropractor so that everything is aligned and in working order for the big day! I was also lucky enough to play guinea pig for the second time for a prenatal massage class today, so we're all very loosey goosey and relaxed feeling. The bacon cheeseburger for dinner didn't hurt either.

He's been prettttty active lately, and is working hard at giving me constant heartburn. Sometimes instead of watching TV Chad and I just watch my belly wiggle and jiggle all by itself. We can only imagine how entertaining he'll be once he's "on the outside."

On to the bigness of the belly!

30 weeks, 2 days!

At this point, we're convinced the belly button is in to stay. Too bad! I really wanted an outtie!
Baby? Are you in there?

Oh yeah, I also got my haircut. The jury's still out whether we will ever go back to that stylist.
