Gluten Free Pregnancy | Week 33

Taken at 33w 6d - nevermind my DSLR remote :)
How far along? 33 week / 34 when this posts :)
Total weight gain: Not sure, hopefully I'm not continuing to pack it on lol!
Maternity clothes? Most certainly, yes.
Stretch marks? Still none! My veins are very obvious in my belly though which looks gross - but that is due to it being huge and will thankfully not be permanent!
Sleep: What sleep? Except for one night...
Best moment this week: The night I slept! On Friday night I fell asleep somewhere between 1 and 2am and woke up at 7am - but I slept solidly for once! I decided to laze about in bed for a while to at least be getting rest, and I fell back asleep from about half 8 to 10am! It was amazing. 
Miss anything? My husband! He needs to get home (I have a countdown)!
Movement: Lots. Less rolls than the past few weeks, probably on account of him running out of space. He's also seems to be getting the hiccups more.
Food cravings: Not so much a craving but I just can't stay away from the chocolate almonds in my office. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Reflux. Aside from being huge, I think this is probably the aspect of pregnancy I will miss least. Also, food aversions definitely back - I ordered a GF Sweet Potato sushi roll for the dinner the other night and had to force myself to eat half, which was the absolute most I was going to be able to get down.
Gender: Boy.
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: Acid reflux, insomnia/exhausted constantly, sore back, sore belly (still growing), some swelling in my feet and hands.
Belly button in or out? Still in. 
Wedding rings on or off? On, but tighter than usual.
Happy or moody most of the time: Much happier this week! It's nice to be home and getting some things accomplished! My allergies have cleared up (yaaay!) and my eczema is almost gone - both things that make me very happy! 
What are you looking forward to? My husband coming home! We also are signed up for birthing classes at the weekend, and that has been a looming 'when are we going to get that on the calendar thing' since week 27 really. I'm not sold on getting an epidural, and I'm not sold that these things really prepare you for pushing a human out of your own body, but I hope to learn a few things and I think it will be nice to meet other expectant parents in our area.
