33 Weeks

33 Weeks: Baby O2 is the weight of a pineapple. 
The little one weighs over 4 pounds and is 17 inches long.  This week the skeleton is hardening, except for the skull plates which won't fuse together so he/she can fit through the birth canal.

How far along? 33 Weeks
Total weight gain? 20 pounds which is 5 pounds less than I was with Cole at this point.  With Cole I'd already started swelling too.
Maternity clothes? Definitely in pants with a mix of shirts.
Stretch marks? None as of now
Sleep? No problem whatsoever.
Best moment this week? All the projects that we accomplished this week: nursery trim painted white, new doors in nursery and Cole's room painted white, pallet wall finished, new dresser put together, and the baby's new bookcase built/painted.  SO much got done thanks to Lora coming up for the weekend to help Trent knock out some of his to do list.  Those two accomplished so much in a couple days!  We also had another doctor's appointment this week and the baby sounded perfect with a heartbeat in the 140s still. 
Miss anything? Nada
Movement? This baby is a mover like his/her brother was but in a different way.  Cole was a kicker- he liked to kick on the sides in short, quick kicks.  This baby... likes to puuuuuusssshhhhh as hard as he/she can in the very middle of my tummy.  This one definitely likes to stretch out in my tummy!
Food cravings? Sweets
Anything making you queasy/sick? Nothing
Gender? We shall see in 49ish more days!
Labor Signs? Nothing at all in this last week.
Symptoms? The stage where it hurts to bend over has officially hit.  Let's see if Cole will be understanding of this stage haha.  Not likely...
Belly button in or out? Out and puffy most of this week. 
Wedding rings on or off? On 
Happy or moody? Overjoyed and loving this holiday season with the excitement of Baby O2's arrival shortly thereafter!
Looking forward to? Only one more week of work and then it's Christmas break!!!!!!!  
Daddy moment?  Trent is already making sure that Cole and Baby O2 have equal treatment :)  Since Cole had a custom bookcase built by Daddy then Baby O2 had to have one as well.  I told Trent we could just buy one since he already had so many other things to do.  But a bookcase from the store just wouldn't do in Trent's eyes.  So one more project he added to the list and already got done this weekend!
Big Brother Cole moment: Out of nowhere this weekend Cole started calling his glow worm that he sleeps with, Baby.  He also insisted that Baby get wrapped in one of his old swaddling blankets and has now slept with him all weekend long.  He whines/cries until you hand him Baby all wrapped up and snug.  He rocks it, kisses it, and holds it in his arms while he sleeps.  It has cracked us up because he has never ever shown any interest in stuffed animals or treating anything like a baby. I'm sure with 5 girls at daycare it has slowly rubbed off on him.  Great practice for this big brother!!
