I’ll try not to let it get to me.

Comment from extremely nice coworker that I see every day who probably didn’t understand how it came across to an overly hormonal pregnant lady:

Hey! You’re finally starting to look pregnant, huh?

Uh…yeah. Actually, as far as I’m concerned, I’ve been looking pregnant for a long time. Maybe even a couple months. So…what happened yesterday or last week that suddenly I “look pregnant?”

Maybe it’s because this child insists upon head-butting my cervix today and is causing me to walk funny? Maybe because I’m wearing a white shirt today and thus look like the side of a building? I guess I’ll never know. But…thanks for noticing that I finally look pregnant. In a month when I’m forced to shuffle at 1 mph to the bathroom every 20 minutes, I wonder what it is I’ll look like then.

Because I have no shame.

There’s a couple badges on the right that I would just be tickled pink if you’d click. In fact, just to make things easier – I’ll add them to this post. :)

Vote For Us @ PoshLittle.Com
This is just a listing of a bunch of baby blogs – but the more clicks from my site…the higher rating I get! It’s that simple. Plus, a few of my bloggy friends are listed here as well and you should probably check out their sites too.
I don’t stand a chance in hell of winning this one since Blair has the majority of the Bump brainwashed, but I wouldn’t mind trying. (Nothin but love, Ms Blair.) This one requires you to have a login to the Bump.
And finally, with the worst graphic on the planet – it’s your chance to place a bet as to the specifics of the Ninja’s arrival – gender, weight, birthday – the works. Give it a shot! In fact, I’ll have a little prize at the end for who is the closest. Place your bets!
Aside from being a vote whore, I’ve been tending to the hubs all day (he’s been dealing with kidney stones and the associated pain), which I think I’ve been doing an okay job at…aside from when I thought I was going to have to knock him out because he was in so much pain. He doesn’t deal with pain very well. (You know I love you dear.) I’ll show him when I’m a model patient when pushing a human being out my vadge in a few weeks. (Did you hear the sarcasm there? I’m pretty sure I’m going to make his tolerance today look like a million bucks.)
Tomorrow I have yet another internal check, and birthing class number four.  Thursday night I will have the house to myself for the first time in a while, and I plan on watching The Office and maybe a few of my Sex & The City DVDs, coupled with a glass of fake Chardonnay. A throwback to my days of yore. And Saturday, I scheduled an hour massage. I cannot effing WAIT.

33 weeks.

How far along? 33 weeks.
Total weight gain/loss: About +30 lbs. Some of it is in my face, for sure.
Maternity clothes? Indeedy. Please welcome the new member of the family – maternity leggings, on the left. Also the second round of new bra buying as well.

Stretch marks? Stomach still stretchie free – thighs are now considered a lost cause. I’ll never wear short shorts again.

Sleep: I’ve had a couple of better nights under my belt.

Best moment this week: Getting through another week with no progress!

Movement: A couple rib kicks, for once. And more cervix headbutting.

Food cravings: Still sweets. And I would REALLY love a hamburger from McDonalds.

Gender: *sigh* Now I don’t know anymore. Maybe I’m just wishing girl?

Labor Signs: The rest is helping the fake labor pains I’ve been having.

Belly Button in or out? Who cares – it’s GROSS.

What I miss: Sushi and white wine. Together.

What I am looking forward to: The hubs feeling better. It’s hard having two of us being uncomfortable!

Weekly Wisdom: None. Pregnancy causes snoring. And it SUCKS.

Milestones: Halfway done with birthing classes. Eeep!

The Fruit: Weeks 33-36 (Month 8)

Baby’s senses are continuing to improve — when light peeks in through your (extremely) stretched belly, those tiny eyelids and irises blink and dilate. And, baby can now recognize and react to simple songs… time to start practicing your lullabies! Growth (at least inside your womb) is starting to slow, and you may notice baby descend into your pelvis at the end of this month.

I’m not the first to say it.
