33 Weeks and 49 Days!

I'm 33 weeks along and have LESS than 50 days left until my due date.  That sounds so weird to say!  I remember when my little ticker on my pregnancy app had over 150 days!  According to the Bump, Carson is now the size (weight) of a Honeydew Melon!  They say he weighs about 4.2-5.8 lbs and is 17.2-18.7" long.  Seeing that he was approximately 18.9" long at my last ultrasound (31w4d), it seems like Carson might take after his dad's height!  (Not that I'm short or anything....)  Baby Center says that Carson weighs as much as a Pineapple at a little more than 4lbs.  Carson was already (about) 4lbs4oz at the last ultrasound!  These food comparisons are much more appetizng than last week!

How far along? 33 Weeks!  Less than 50 days to go (49 to be exact)!  I can also officially say that I'm due NEXT MONTH!
Total weight gain: I found out at my doctor that I'm officially up 18.5 lbs overall.  My doctor said that's on the low end of normal but she isn't concerned at this time since my fundal height is measuring right on (and Carson is measuring ahead)!
Maternity clothes? Yep.  I'm still wearing a lot of non-maternity tops and dresses though!  (scroll down for my newest bump pic!)
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: It's been getting better.  I wake up a lot to pee but I've trained myself to go right back to sleep!  I'm not even sure if I actually fully wake up, haha!  I also haven't been able to sleep in much..I guess my body is getting me ready for Carson!
Best moment this week: I had a great doctor's appointment and was able to hear Carson's heart beating away!  I also went to meet with a pediatrician and I really liked him!  We're scheduled to see another one but it feels good to at least know that I have one great option in case anything were to happen earlier than expected!
Miss Anything? Right now I'm missing being able to bend in half.  It's getting hard to do things I used to take for granted like tie shoes for my kindergartners or paint my toe nails!
Movement: Carson's favorite thing lately is to put his little bum on one side of my tummy and kick a foot out to the other makes for a weird, lopsided looking stomach, haha!Food cravings: I caved and definitely had some Oreos this week!  I also have been eating a lot of fruit still and I've been loving the peanut butter fudge I made! :)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender: Baby BOY Carson!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: My back aches haven't been as bad this week but I try to change positions a lot when I'm sleeping so I don't get cramped up.  I have had some tightness in my belly but nothing super painful....
Belly Button in or out? It's still a "halfie".... :/
Wedding rings on or off? Still on and loose.  Hoping I don't have to ever take them off...I'm not ready for the side eyes I'll get at the grocery, haha!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: So much!  We have ANOTHER 3d ultrasound tomorrow (I feel SO lucky and fortunate to be able to see Carson so much), we have our first baby class (childbirth preparation) at our hospital on Saturday, and Sunday we're going to my mom's for Easter and to celebrate my sister's 22nd birthday!  My little sis is turning 22...that makes me feel way old! :(  

Here is my bump at 33 weeks (32w6d to be exact)!
