Week 33

We have made it to week 33!  An exciting week for me as 3 is my favorite number :).  This past week has been exciting as we welcomed Ian Caleb Hartl into the world on Monday!  Ian was born to Crissy and Darren (our good friends who took Bradley classes with us and were 8 weeks ahead of us).  Although another 7 weeks seems like a long time we have Ian to tide us over until our little one arrives.  Crissy made it through natural child birth using the Bradley method (she was the first one in our class to have her baby) so the 3 of us remaining have a boost of confidence!  

We are still waiting to hear that the crib has arrived so we can go collect the furniture and put the finishing touches on the nursery.  I have all the laundry sorted and ready to be washed as soon as the furniture arrives.  Jason and I had a great time at the shower the running group held yesterday and we are looking forward to our final shower on Saturday.  

In case some of you faithful blog readers were not aware you can comment on any of the blogs/ask questions and we will answer!  We love to hear from you.

Fetal development in pregnancy week 33:fetus in eighth month For all the weight and bulk you’re lugging around these days, you’d think your little champ should weigh much more than a mere 5 lbs and measly 17 inches in height, but nope, that’s about the average size for a baby in its thirty-third week. In terms of appearances, they’re getting cuter and pudgier every minute as they pile on the baby fat for those adorable little wrist rolls and chubby toes. And as we’re sure you’ve already noticed they’re getting stronger with every passing day. Nowadays, it’s possible to observe a well-placed kick just by watching your belly—but you already knew that didn’t you? Although they’re getting stronger, your bigger-by-the-day baby is losing space to move around, so the actual rate of movement will drop off in the last few weeks, despite that powerful drop-kick they’ve been working on. Hey, did you know you’ll continue feeling their movements even during labor?
