Baby Update: Weeks 32 & 33

Week 32

Week 33

How far along? 33 Weeks

Baby's size? At the Doctor’s appointment this last Wednesday Hudson was about 4 pounds which the doctor said was right on track.

Weight Gain? I am up about 16 pounds overall. I gained a pound in the last two weeks. 

 Maternity clothes? I think I am really tired of my maternity clothes, or I really miss my pre-pregnancy clothes, because this week I found myself wearing a lot of my pre-pregnancy jeans with the belly band. I guess I should be glad they still kind of fit :) My shirts are a mix too. I have found myself buying more regular clothes that I can still wear now but will work after Hudson comes too.

Stretch marks? none yet but I have started putting lotion on my tummy every morning, I figured my luck at not getting them by doing nothing might run out.

Belly button in or out? It is still in but it is almost flat.

Sleep? This one has been interesting. I think my weird dreams are the hardest part of sleeping because I wake up feeling just as tired. I can fall asleep fine and I am getting up about 4 times a night to use the restroom.

Foods I am loving? I have been having a really hard time eating lately. Either I am not hungry at all and forget to eat or I am starving and then get full really fast.

Foods I am hating? Nothing really.

Best moment this week? Getting to see the Hudster :)

Movement? All the time. It is fun to watch my tummy go in all weird directions and a little weird when I feel a distinct foot. He really likes kicking me in the ribs.

Symptoms? Pretty much the normal third trimester things.

Gender? Hudson (a boy)

What I miss? Laying/sleeping on my back. Diet coke and coffee (though I do have the occasional one). My old body. Running. Not feeling the need to sleep all the time. Enough said.

What I'm looking forward to? My second baby shower today :)

Milestone: Nothing specific, I guess I am just glad Hudson in progressing like he should :)

Emotions: We got a lot of the nursery done (all but a few hanging things) which makes me even more ready for him to come! I had a little freak out about the labor and delivery but I asked the doc tons of questions and now I feel a lot better. Overall I am excited to spend a ton of time with the Hubs before the little guy arrives but I also can’t wait for him to be here :)


  1. look great!!!

    I'm with you on the maternity clothes--I am SO tired of wearing them :( But lucky you for your pre-pregnancy jeans still fitting at this point. I think mine stopped going up over my thighs/hips around 18 weeks? Talk about defeating.

    Time is flying by, isn't it?

  2. You look so tiny Ashley! And I mean that in a perfectly-normal-and-healthy-but-super-cute way (I know some people hate being told that they are tiny, so I thought I'd clarify - to me it was always a compliment). When I was pregnant I SO wanted to sleep on my back or my stomach, but I couldn't - made for some pretty uncomfortable nights.

  3. Girl, you're getting so close and you're still so little! You look amazing. I definitely had the crazy dreams and YES they will affect your sleep. I used to wake up exhausted after having them. You're definitely on the down slope, mama! He'll be here before you know it! xoxo

  4. I am finally catching up on blogs!

    Your new layout it so cute. :) You are looking so cute and so tiny!!! You're getting SO close, enjoy the last few weeks :)
