33 weeks

I made it to 33 weeks. I have started experimenting with my non-pregnancy spring/summer clothes to see what still fits. It means trying a few outfits on in the morning, but I have found a few to put in rotation.
Yesterday was LONG, I was busy from 7:45am-9:30pm. Today I was happy to be home by 5pm. In childbirth classes we went through labor stations and I had to stick my hand in ice and water for a minute or longer while we practiced breathing techniques and labor positions. It was really cold (John even stuck his hand in the water with me on the last time). I learned that when I am pain I tend to talk fast,groan and look for distractions. John tried to distract me with information from his history class that he was studying for his finals, but it wasn't exciting enough for me:)

Other Random thoughts:
I bought some smaller baskets from Walmart and put them in my changing table (the big one is from Goodwill). I washed a few of the pants, onsies, and other random things that don't get hung up and put them in the baskets ready for baby.

I have had a few days where I really just don't feel that good (still nausea), but some days I feel better (and the pill helps it!)
I go to the Doctor again on Thursday, so if anything changes in my status, I will probably update it then.
I really want to work on writing my birth plan, but at night most of the time I am too tired. Maybe when school is over in 2 1/2 weeks:)
Baby has been moving/kicking a ton lately. A few friends from school got to feel him kicking during our CPR class.
I GOT INTO GRAD SCHOOL! It probably isn't that big of deal, but I was accepted into the Educational Technology program at UNC. I plan on taking one class at a time at first (especially with a new baby), but I think it will be good for me and offer a little more job security:)
