And now -- BABY! I am ecstatic about this new chapter in my life. I know this journey includes many changes, but I know it will be amazing!

33 Weeks and Maternity Education!!

October 14, 2013 | 07:21 PM

I have a month and a half to go!!! This is absolutely crazy! I cannot believe how quickly time flies. I am certain that I will miss pregnancy when it is gone.

Now an updated Q&A Session at 33 weeks!!!

Total weight gain/loss:

I have gained a total of 30 pounds, perhaps even more by now. I know that number will grow even larger in the next month!! I feel incredibly large!!

Food cravings:

Mostly just craving carbs, as usual. I am trying to make healthy decisions, though.

Anything making you queasy or sick?

Nope! Baby Titus and I have felt pretty great lately!!

Miss Anything?

I am starting to miss my choice of shoes. My options are limited when it comes to comfortable shoes that I can wear and make it through the school day without incredibly sore feet. I can only wear something flat and supportive. My tennis shoes have definitely felt the best lately!

Best moment this week:

This past weekend, Ben and I had our first maternity education class and our hospital tour! It was such an informative day for us. We learned a lot and feel more prepared for the arrival of Baby Jacyn.

Mood:

This is nothing unusual, but I am incredibly emotional lately!! I feel everything from happiness, sadness, nervousness, and anxiousness. I feel happiness when I think about Baby Jacyn arriving soon. I feel sadness when I think about not being pregnant anymore. Yes, as uncomfortable and sore and large and I feel, I do still love being pregnant!!

I feel major anxiousness when I think about the actual labor process and delivery of Baby Jacyn. I feel overwhelmed when I think of all I want to accomplish before she arrives, both at school and at home. I feel nervousness when I think about just how much my life is about to change. I know it will all be incredibly amazing!!!

Sleep:

Thanks to my exhaustion from school, I have absolutely no problem getting a good night sleep. There are many nights I do not even wake up throughout the entire night. If I do need to get up to use the bathroom, I have no trouble falling back to sleep in no time. I do not have a pregnancy pillow yet!!

Annoyances:

No room for food!! It seems I cannot eat much before I am full. I am excited to enjoy food again. I usually feel quite uncomfortable after eating dinner. I do consider myself lucky, as I have not experienced any heartburn thus far in my pregnancy.

Jeans are no longer an annoyance because I have finally found a pair that I love. I found them at Target!!

My vein is still swollen and more annoying than ever. But my hands and feet are not too swollen yet and I am still able to wear my wedding ring and even take it on and off. I am thankful for this!

Movement:

In my class last weekend, the other Mommies said they are uncomfortable because of the jabs they keep feeling from their babies. Jacyn never makes me uncomfortable. Sometimes I get nervous because I do not think she moves as much as it sounds like other babies do. She definitely never jabs enough to hurt me or make me feel uncomfortable. I love her so much!!!

Looking forward to?

More Baby Showers!! A few teacher friends are having a shower for me at school this week! This weekend, Hubby Ben's mom is having a couples "Baby-Q" for us. I am looking forward to both of these events!! Following these, I will have a week off for Fall Break!
