Baby Update: 33 weeks

Well, things are moving along! All you prayer-supporters will be glad to know that I had an appointment today, and things are looking great! Weight gain, blood pressure, growth, all just as they should be.

I've been feeling great, just a little tired like in the first trimester. The baby is behaving nicely, with her head down just like it's supposed to be. All the bumping I'm feeling is probably her feet. She seems to like to push against my lowest right rib (not exactly comfortable) but usually stops if I sit up straighter.

While Haley was down here, she got a bunch of nice baby-bump pictures. Here are some of my favorites. Thanks Haley!

I had thought I was looking pretty big - until I went to a class at the hospital about a week ago. Actually, I look fairly small! However, I was at least a head taller than most of the other ladies, which might have had something to do with it. ;-) I don't feel like I've expanded much lately, which probably means I have some good growth ahead as Baby starts to put on some rolls.

We are more and more excited to meet our little girl!

. . . unless of course, it turns out to be a little boy after all! - GJ

Great photos! You look great and yes for 33 weeks you are small, but the taller you are the more room you have to hid it ;-)

I am still thinking blue...but I've been wrong before! Take Luke for example...I thought for sure he'd be Cora Joy!

Wonderful pics! I can't believe how quickly this pregnancy has flown by. (Well, for me, watching. . .) I'm glad you posted these pics -- the ones from the pie auction didn't show your baby belly much.

As you are getting closer to the end of this pregnancy, I wanted to share with you some mommy-encouragement. Carol has a great webpage on pregnancy and birth, and the side column has a collection of Scripture passages that are well suited for meditating upon as your time draws near:

Hi Gretchen-
Haley did a great job w/ the pictures. Did you two take them in your house? It's funny...I was 33 weeks @ your wedding. That seems like a long time ago now. Glad you're doing well!
