33 week update

More than you ever wanted to know...

How far along?
33 weeks
Total weight gain? 21 lbs
Maternity clothes? Some and some non-maternity clothes that I am "making work"... my belly is starting to hang out of my medium t-shirts...
Sleep? Hit or miss. Lots of trips to the bathroom and difficulty getting comfortable.
Best moment this week? Sharing our 4D ultrasound pics with friends
Movement? Absolutely! He likes to stretch out and gets the hiccups at least once a day
Food cravings: Water and salty foods
Labor Signs: A few braxton-hicks contractions, but nothing more!
Belly button? Not much of one left, but not an outie
What I miss? Drinking Coke (although I do sip Josh's from time to time) and having fewer aches
What I am looking forward to? Deciding on a name!
Milestones? Under 50 days until my due date!

Bama Football vs. South Carolina

The volleyball schedule has been less than ideal this year in relation to Alabama football. There are only TWO weekends that volleyball is at home and there is a home football game. One of those was this past weekend.

It was a VERY full weekend... volleyball matches on Friday night and Sunday afternoon, volleyball recruits in on Saturday and the football game Saturday night. We also had two house guests... Josh's brother Matt, who is a manager for the South Carolina football team, and Mike, a college friend of Josh's who is an NFL scout in town to check out some of the Bama talent.

Josh took the vb recruits on to the field before the game... and, for the first time, I got to go too! Here are a few pics from the evening...

Sneak Peek

After a week and a half delay, we finally had our 4-D ultrasound today! I wavered a little about whether or not to get the ultrasound, worried that it would ruin the surprise of seeing him for the first time when he is born, but in the end the desire to get a peek at the little guy won out.

T-Von (his nickname, don't ask...) kept his hands up by his face through most of the ultrasound, in spite of the tech's most determined pushing and prodding, so we only got one or two pics of his sweet little face unobstructed. But you can't miss those chubby cheeks, even with a fist in the way!

Needless to say, the next 2 months can't pass fast enough... I'm anxious to hold him in my arms!

Sweet little face

Here's my foot!

Won't you guys just let me sleep?
