It has been an eventful few weeks. My body seems to be expanding somehow, even though I feel like it is running out of room. It has officially affected my balance. I had a bit of a fall the beginning of last week. Everything was fine, but I did go for some routine monitoring. That lead to a long evening at the hospital and a couple different medications because I was having a lot more contractions than I was aware of. My doctor did a couple additional tests and they seem to be harmless contractions at this point. Brooke should continue to hibernate for at least a few more weeks. Hopefully these extra contractions are just getting me ready for a smooth delivery-----fingers crossed!!!!

33 weeks: Baby weighs as much as a pineapple
Your baby is proportioned like a pineapple when it comes to weight-- a little over 4 pounds.
(Length: more than 17 inches, head to heel.)
Jarrod is also making progress.....mentally ;) He breezed right through his diapering and swaddling inservice. He was a natural. I am fully confident that he will excel even when the baby is moving and the diapers are full. 100%

Husband Hicks has also been very busy preparing the nursery. He finished repainting the changing table, hung my curtains, hunted down the out of stock mobile arm, got us a great deal on the new light fixture, and took down the fan. The glider is finally ordered and I think we will have a crib soon. Thanks to a surprise visit from the Potter's, we also have the chandelier installed and functioning. It is all finally coming together and it is very exciting!
