How I’m feeling: Pretty good. The gym took a back seat this week. It was my first week back to work and I was exhausted! Unfortunately, this blog has been suffering. My back has been giving me a run for my money too. The shoes I wore to work for the first day of school had about a 1″ heel. Seriously. Smallest heel ever. That evening, I put my feet up and did not see ankles. I fully had cankles. From here on in I will wear flats and my compression pantyhose to work. Here’s what my feet looked like…
New and weird: Braxton Hicks contractions. They don’t hurt, but if it is a taste of what the physical pressure of real contractions will be like, um, let’s just say I’m getting nervous.
Exciting: the baby’s room is really coming along! I can’t wait to show you guys!! I also googled printable free nursery art. I have two printed out that I like and I printed out one customizable picture for our boy name and one for our girl name 🙂
Rings Fitting Fingers: Snugly

Baby is the size of: a durian fruit
The baby at 33 weeks:
- He or she’s keeping eyes open while awake.
- Baby’s also starting to coordinate breathing with sucking and swallowing.
- The bones are hardening.
- And he or she is going through (more) major brain development — that’s one smart baby!
