Today, we are 33 weeks pregnant! I took the weekend (and probably overdid it) to go through every drawer, closet, and room in our house to declutter and organize. After all, we are making room for a tiny person over here! JJ had left for a couple of days to go on a guys golf trip in Palm Springs, so it gave me the chance to really focus and get things done as our weekends are filling up and there isn’t too much time left. I had some pains this morning, which my doctor said was completely normal. The reason for the sharp pains is her starting to move down and things are stretching (eek) to prepare for the big day. It’s hard when you are out and about and unable to be in pain in the comfort of your own home. Luckily, the pain has passed and I am feeling much better. I almost made a run for the hospital (clearly, I haven’t been to my classes yet). The only thing I kept thinking about was, “She can’t come before my baby shower.”

My shower is next Sunday and I am SO excited for it.
