How Far Along: 32 Weeks!I love this picture for many reasons: It shows how short my mom is ;), how large my belly is, and how cute we are together!
Baby is the size of: A jicama, what the heck is that?
Total Weight Gain: 28 pounds!!! Methinks I may be indulging too much? My prediction is I will gain 35 pounds when all is said and done through this pregnancy. Let me tell you....there's nothing like getting pregnant to make you finally appreciate the weight you were at pre-pregnancy:
Sleep: Getting up in the middle of the night is painfullll because I have to pee so bad. I'm waking up earlier and earlier and having more trouble falling back to sleep.
Best Moment of the Week:
*32 Week doctor appointment. Baby's heartbeat was in the 150's and everything looked good.
*My shower! More updates tomorrow!
Worst Moment of the Week:
*Tuesday and Friday! I felt like the baby was literally trying to bust out of my stomach. I guess maybe I over-ate at lunch? Or whatever I did eat didn't sit well with me. I kept asking Chris if he could just hold my stomach for 2 hours cause it just felt so. heavy. S/He was pressing so hard up against my stomach, I couldn't even poke my stomach or anything, it was like a rock: No give to it whatsoever, it was like carrying around a brick wall.
Miss Anything: Moving quickly, getting out of bed easily. Bending, etc. etc.
Food Cravings: Nothing specific - pizza?
Anything make you queasy or sick: Nope!
Have you started to show?
Gender: Team Green, but we finnaaally did the Chinese Gender Prediction chart, which tracks gender based on age and the month in which you conceive. In my case: 28 years old and March = BOY, yet another sign.
Symptoms: 90% of all the baby's movements literally make me stop in my tracks. Movements are CRAZY big now. Chris is feeling movement every night, and we can feel full on limbs. I was playing with an arm or a leg last night and it kicked/punched me back really hard...it's the weiiiirrrdddest thing!
*Leg Cramps, especially in the morning!
Workouts: Just some walks with the Puppy!
Mood: Very happy and loved :) and...as you can see here...tired.
Looking forward to: A three day weekend ahead when we can really dive into all our gifts and start getting things set up. Getting our crib next week!
Maternity Clothes: Absolutely
Stretchmarks: Yea, still using BioOil every day.
Rings on or off? Engagement ring off, wedding band on (but getttting tight!)
Bellybutton in or out? ehhh half in, half out! It looks really weird!
