33 weeks confessional

Whew, 33 weeks and I'm feeling it! 
When I walk, I feel like Mr. August is going to fall right out!
I'm up 23 pounds, which I'm feeling pretty good about.
Nate only weighs 7 pounds more than me!
The diaper bag is packed for the hospital. 
I have new jammies and I'm still looking for the perfect robe.
I have a confession:
I've been drinking caffeine every day.
Sometimes coffee, sometimes diet coke
I feel really guilty about it.
But,
but,
I just couldn't make it through the day without it. 
I'm SO tired. 
I try to hide my belly from the girl at McDonald's drive-thru so she won't think I'm a bad mom. 
I feel a little better now that I've told you.
Please don't yell at me.

You are soooo cute! I just wish I could rub that belly! (Yes, that would be totally awkward and yes, I'm one of THOSE people...but I ALWAYS ask first!).

I drank caffeine everyday too. Trust me, there are MUCH MUCH MUCH worst things you could be doing! :)

I'm pretty sure I had more than a few diet cokes when I was pregnant....and I never felt {too}bad about it:) Those red shoes are ADORABLE!!

i'm a total blog stalker lately. and usually i don't comment, but i need to help a sister out here. do you know that you'd need to drink 5 cups of coffee per day to be considered as possibly having a negative effect on baby's birth weight? AND that tidbit has only been tested in rats, never seen in humans. drink up, mama, drink up.

I drank a cup of coffee a day with all three of my last pregnancies... my kids turned out hyper but healthy. I'm pretty sure that's an acceptable level of caffeine.

You are too cute!! And I drank caffeine everyday with my 3rd baby, I swear its because you have the other two that makes it impossible without it! He was my biggest baby, so don't feel guilty!

I know I've told you this before, but I did NOT drink any caffeine with Carson & he is my most challenging child. I did drink it with my 1st and 3rd child, however, and they are pretty laid-back kids. I'm not sure it REALLY has anything to do with the their personalities, whether I drank caffeine or not, but I agree with the other ladies. You aren't drinking enough to hurt your baby...and you are SUPER cute...preggo:)

The first thing, and I mean the very first thing the nurse said to me after delivery and all the work afterwards, was, "Would you like a Coke?" I gave her a horrified look and said, "What, I have been off of caffeine for 9 months and you want me to have a Coke?" She replied, "....yes, I think you need a Coke." :) And you know, I did!
