Bump Date: 33 Weeks {'POP' Shower}

This is almost a week late so be expecting 34 in the next few days.
How far along:
33 weeks

Size of baby:

Maternity Clothes:
I can wear workout pants and some dresses, but the rest are maternity.

It's a BOY!!! 
Baby Boy's Name:
Oliver Gammill
Oliver- after my Great Grandmother Olive / Gammill (like camel with a 'G')- Andrew's mom's maiden name, as well as Andrew's middle name

I found this picture today of me and my Great Grandmother, Oliver's namesake.  This was in 2004 not too long before she passed away at 95.  She was a trooper and very witty.

Little man is very active these days and I love it.  He definitely has his active times, which don't go unnoticed. 
He still finds my bladder a blast to punch or push off of. 
He's been continuing to be pretty active at night.  I wake up occasionally with him doing lots of wiggling.
He's also putting in requests for more leg room.  He's a mover and loves stretching.  When he stretches out his legs, my stomach takes the form of a football.  His booty sticks out right under my left ribs and his feet right under my right (long legs).

I've used my doppler the last couple nights to find his heartbeat and I'm finding it much lower than I have been.  I'm thinking it's possible he's dropped.

Bathroom breaks are down to one at night unless I drink an excessive amount of water.
 As I've said in previous posts, I'm pretty much a side sleeper now and a pillow between the legs is officially a must.

What I miss:
Sometimes I just want to lay on my tummy. Not really gunna happen.

Cravings: Not a whole lot of cravings right now actually.  Maybe you could say Tums, as heartburn has been my newest development.

Other Symptoms:
1- Still pretty tired.  Hoping I can use what energy I have to get everything done before he gets here.
2- Hello heartburn. According to the old wives tale lots of heartburn means lots of hair.  That's what I'm hoping.  Also, it's a good thing I don't mind the taste of Tums.
I can honestly say it looks like he's working on some.
3- Braxton Hicks, I didn't really have these with Hads, so this is a new one.  Hoping this means he'll come earlier than Hads (41 weeks).
4- Crazy dreams.  Yes, they continue.
5- NESTING!!  With my short bursts of energy I've been cleaning out closets and throwing stuff away.  Maybe I'm more purging than nesting.  I've cleaned out my closet and it feels so much more organized. Oliver's closet has been cleaned out and I've started packing both of our hospital bags.  All of his sheets have been washed as well as a few newborn outfits and every part of his car seat has been washed and wiped down.

Big moment this week:
I have been blessed with wonderful friends.  Just a few weeks ago I had a shower at church that was was fantastic and this past week had a shower with friends from the Med School. (I also have another shower after Thanksgiving with friends in Arkansas, SO blessed!!) 
My sweet friends that did this shower went with 
'She's About to Pop!'

The foods were all 'pop' related, very cute! 
 There were also jalepeno 'pop'pers and 'pop'corn chicken.

 They also did a gift card shower, which was great!
 Oliver got some other goodies too.

The hostesses stuck this on my camera as well.  =)  Thank you ladies!

My talented friend (and one of the hostesses), Jessica, took some pictures of me and Hads a few days before and had them strung behind the table as well as on the table (you may have noticed).  Here are a few.  You'll have to accept my pictures of pictures for now.

I'm getting so excited about this little guy's arrival.  And there is no doubt he will be well stocked in everything he needs.

Thanks for checkin' in!!
