Pregnancy #2 - week 33

Yahoo!  We have less than 50 days to go until baby brother's anticipated arrival.  Seems like both such a long time and not enough time to go.

This week I had my first sports medicine physical therapy session for my back.  I had anticipated trying acupuncture but my doctor recommended other techniques before delving into needles.  After an intense adjustment and deep massage in my lower back I felt great Friday leaving their office.  Unfortunately the pain is back and I am looking for some much needed relief.

Also this week I took a third round of maternity pictures.  I'll post some of my favorites soon!

And lastly I get to attend my baby sprinkle this Saturday at my friend Steph's house.  She graciously offered to throw me a small get together to honor baby brother and I couldn't be happier!  I can't wait to see my girlfriends during a laid back, rock inspired, baby brunch.

According to, baby at 33 weeks is 4.2 to 5.8 pounds, and 17.2 to 18.7 inches.  Seems so close to full grown ... can't imagine how much bigger baby will get in the next 7 weeks.

pregnancy symptoms at 33 weeks
  • Hot! Your metabolic rate is through the roof, and that may leave you feeling overheated. (too cold in Charlotte lately to feel any additional warmth)
  • Headaches, due to hormone fluctuations, stress or dehydration. (unfortunately yes)
  • Shortness of breath -- though you're probably used to it by now.  (especially walking up and down the stairs)
  • Forgetfulness and clumsiness, also known as baby brain. This is totally normal. (I can't imagine being any more clumsy than I already am)
