How Far Along: 33 Weeks, 1 day

Total weight gain: 33 pounds as of my last appointment, We threw out our scale because it wasn't working correctly so I'm only getting weighed at my doctor visits every two weeks. 
Maternity clothes? Pants just sound horrible right now. I've lived in leggings and sweatpants over the Thanksgiving weekend. I'm not looking forward to a week of getting dressed for work. 
Stretch marks? Still haven't found any but I'm consistently drinking a ton of water and using elasticity oil. 
Sleep: This week wasn't so bad and I slept through most of the night without waking up a ton. It's getting harder and harder to switch sides while sleeping and I have to hold on to the side of the bed to hoist myself over. It's really attractive :)
Best moment this week: Spending Thanksgiving with family was the highlight of our week. We had a great day visiting, watching football, and eating too much. Ronnie is also off this past week and next week before he starts a new job. I'm looking forward to him being home every night when I get home from work
Miss anything? My shoes! My feet are typically puffy or swollen by 10am so none of my shoes fit anymore. I had to go buy moccasin slippers at Target last week. I feel a little silly wearing them but I know it's just for a short time. My boots still fit but I don't expect it to last much longer.  
Movement: SO MUCH! I actually got nervous because she was moving a ton and it was painful this past Saturday night. I know her typical patterns of movement early in the morning and the evening when I'm relaxing on the couch. I think she even elbowed me pretty hard on my right side. My stomach constantly looks like an alien has taken over whenever she starts twisting and twirling.
Food cravings: Same as the last few weeks...water and the new one so far is anything mint flavored. I've been chewing a lot more gum and eating mints two or three at a time. Food in general doesn't always sound appealing and I've been getting really full really quickly. I'm snacking more than eating actual meals. 
Labor Signs: No signs yet. 
Symptoms: Same as last week with feeling achy and basically like a grandmother. I tell Ronnie almost daily that I'm ready to meet Baby J and get her OUT. 
Looking forward to: Moving soon! We've found a new apartment with more space for us and the baby so we've been packing a little bit each weekend. I'm looking forward to decorating for Christmas and nesting a bit in the nursery.
