Bump-date randoms

Here is a little bump update along with some pregnancy randoms

I am currently 33 weeks. 
I can't believe that they consider you full term at 37 weeks.
I was 2 weeks late with Aiden, I will probably be late again.
My contractions slowed down quite a bit but have been crazy the past 3 days...I think a few people at the mall thought I was in labor haha
My motto is that if I can fall asleep with's not the real thing. (even though they wake me up all night long)
I am hoping to have a VBAC so these contractions give me hope for spontaneous labor and no pitocin :-) (yes my OB will give me pitocin, even for a VBAC)
My OB's are AMAZING!!!  Every time I leave my appointments I feel like the Dr's are mind readers.  They just get it!!!
I have gained 7lbs and TRUST ME I have earned every single one of those lbs
I am still vomiting and constantly nauseous BUT...
I desperately want the PIC line fact I have been weaning off the IV meds and tried oral meds HOPING that my doc approves the line coming out.  My arm is so irritated from the bandage and I am miserable! My home healthcare nurse has tried to move the bandage to allow healing but it isn't working.
The hubs playing nurse!

The start of the skin irritation blah!
I am on a 2 week trial which ends TOMORROW!  If I maintained my weight (or gained) for 2 weeks, she will let me get the line out.  2 days ago I had lost I just ate a huge dinner and 2 cookies...hopefully I keep it down long enough for her to pull the line :-).
I HATE maternity clothes...whoever said they were comfortable LIED!!!
I am still wearing my regular jeans...hello 7 for all mankind skinny jeans...they are the bomb!
My normal shirts are starting to get short...uggh if only I could avoid maternity clothes for 7 more weeks.
The past 2 days I have woken up at 4 am starving but chose to hold out until the morning...woke up both mornings too nauseous to eat...bummer!
What's a craving????  I have yet to have one.
I don't believe in eating for 2...a newborn eats 4 ounces...put down the extra big mac people!!!!
With that being said, I am barely eating enough for 1...guess I don't know what it's like to feel good enough to eat for 2 ;-)
Baby boy is so darn active...all day!  I love it!
YES...we have a name :-)
The fabric sample for his bedding arrived today...I love them!  I can't wait to finish his room!
Aiden's big boy room is almost done...Baby boy's room is in full effect!
The best feeling is hearing Aiden talk about his baby brother without me bringing it up...he has so much love in his heart!
Here are some updated bump pics...I embrace the bump :-) it won't be there forever!
Sorry for the cheesy self-portraits but the hubby is gone a lot so this is what I am left with :-)
26 weeks

27 weeks

30 weeks

30 weeks...blurry blurry

32 weeks

33 weeks

I am excited, nervous, scared, and anxious and probably so much more!  This pregnancy has been a lot like my pregnancy with A and so different as well.  I certainly don't want to wish the time away but there is so much to look forward to.  Wish me luck tomorrow :-)
