Pregnancy Files {The Bump Week 33}

{I'm now 2 weeks behind in my bump posts and this is the best I could do for my week 33 picture}

Best moment this week: Stopping in to see my students from last year and hearing all their adorable comments about my baby bump. They are so excited that I'm having a baby.

Food cravings: Pumpkin, but this has nothing to do with pregnancy. Hello Fall!

Movement: I am finally, finally feeling more movement. Since my placenta is anterior I haven't felt movements as big or as much as I hear other people talk about. Up to now he's been moving, but it's usually when I lay down or sit. Well now he is officially on the move 24/7 and is strong enough to make sure I feel every little kick and spin. I love it.

Symptoms: Painting my toe nails for my shower this weekend is going to be a challenge since bending down is extremely difficult now. I'm feeling some definite pains as my tendons continue stretching out, but still no swelling thank you Jesus.

Nursery: We hung up a few more things on the walls this week and I'm having fun organizing all the little toys and clothes. Aw.

Prayer for Baby:
Dear Aiden,
I love feeling you move around in my belly. You are still gun shy when other people try to feel you move besides me and your Dad, but that's okay. Throughout this whole pregnancy people ask me how I'm feeling. It's so hard to even fully explain, but I have absolutely loved being pregnant with you. While I'm so excited to actually be able to hold you in my arms I already get a little sad thinking about missing the feeling of you move around in my belly. It is such an amazing feeling. I already feel so connected to you and love you so much.
Your Mama

Dear Lord,
I love knowing that you already know everything about Aiden. You know his exact date of birth before we do, you know what his little personality will be like, you know what he is going to love doing and what his gifts are, you truly know him already and I love that. Thank you for our little guy and for the love I already feel for him. Amen.

This is so so sweet! I love that you write letters to Aiden and prayers to the Lord. This will be so special to look back on in the years to come. :)

Ha, and I love that you're craving pumpkin and that it has nothing to do with being pregnant. I'm sipping a PSL because I just can't get enough!

Time to treat yourself to a pedicure, lady! :)

I agree with Anne, time to treat yourself (or your husband) to a pedicure :) I have an anterior placenta too and finally felt movement last week (at 21 weeks). Nothing from the outside yet, but she sires get moving and kicking that I can feel!

You are precious!!! I just love these post! I sure do wish it felt like fall here. We had two days and now it's in the 90's again!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

You need a pedicure! Or have Drew do your toenails! ;) So glad you are feeling him move around now! :)

I bet those movements are really exciting!

And I agree with Rach - treat yourself to a pedicure!
