Mommy Monday {33 weeks}

You guys, this belly is no joke. I've been so uncomfortable lately and just can't imagine having to last 7 {SEVEN} more weeks. On a completely unrelated, yet somewhat related, note, I've been toying around with hiring a doula and cannot for the life of me decide if I want to {or if it's worth it to} spend the money. Has anyone hired one? Thoughts? Are they worth it? Help!

How far along?  33 weeks, 4 days
Total weight gain/measurements: I'm just gonna stick with 28 lbs because I haven't weighed myself recently. 
Maternity clothes: I'm seriously living in dresses. I'm so glad it's warm out again.  
Stretch marks: None to report and hoping to keep it that way. I'm lathering my belly in Burt's Bee's Mama Bee. I have added The Honest Co. Belly Balm and just love the smell of it. I'm currently using both of these to make sure my belly is nice and moisturized. 
Sleep: I have been dealing with some major pregnancy insomnia lately. It's really taking a toll on my mental state. I'm up from about 1-3 or 4 every night. Nothing I do helps and I just can't seem to stay sleeping.  
Exercise: I'm not gonna lie, I haven't done Beachbody On Demand since we moved and I likely won't again until baby comes. I might try it this weekend and see if it helps me feel any better physically. I have been going to my Prenatal Yoga every week, though.
Best moment this week: Lennon's 2nd birthday party. I still can't believe she's going to be 2 in a little over a week! 
Miss anything? Exercising  and uninterrupted sleep! My back has also been killing me lately. If I'm able to just lay down and relax, it doesn't hurt as much. Let's be honest, though, that never happens. 
Movement:  She has been most active around 9-11pm. Although, today she decided to kick me real good in the ribs. That was the first time she's inflicted any pain. She has, however, managed to make my entire belly numb from all the kicking. 
Food cravings: This week, I'm all about watermelon!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Bell Peppers and Celery!
Gender: Girl #2!
Labor signs: Braxton Hicks were no joke this week. I actually started timing them because they were a little concerning. I may actually ask my doctor to monitor me for a little bit tomorrow during my appointment. Hopefully nothing too concerning is going on and they are just Braxton Hicks. 
Belly button in or out? In, but sneaking it's way out. It's out sometimes depending on where baby is located in my belly. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: My mood has been off and on lately, some days I'm more happy or sad than others.  
Looking forward to:  4 day weekend for Memorial Day!

Until next time!
