How far along: 32 weeks and 2 days
Just for giggles, here I am at 32 weeks with Brooke.
Slightly on the bigger side than I am now, eh? But I carried her MUCH lower and apparently I had time to actually do my hair in the mornings. My how nice that was…I believe they call that ‘effort’…
Baby Size: A squash (15.2 – 16.7 inches and 2.5 – 3.8 lbs) or a head of lettuce (19 inches, 3.9 lbs) [the first stat is from TheBump.com, the second is from WhatToExpect.com]
Weight gain: Up around 17lbs or so. Dr. is good with it so I am good with it.
Workouts: The past week hasn’t been the best. Whatever I came down with on Sunday hasn’t left yet, OR I’m dealing with some crazy heartburn (which I’m thinking is exactly what it is)…but I haven’t been eating a whole lot so I haven’t had a ton of energy…The last time I was at the gym was last Thursday (Thanksgiving day) at CrossFit Charleston…I’m hoping to make it in tomorrow! But it wasn’t all bad, made it several times the week before 🙂
Maternity clothes: Yes.
Stretch marks: Nothing.
Sleep: Meh. It’s been better. I’m so tired that I’m falling asleep on the couch super early, but that’s likely because Brooke hasn’t been sleeping well the past few nights…when she doesn’t sleep well, mama doesn’t sleep well…
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Movement: If he isn’t kicking or punching me, little dude has the hiccups. And he is constantly shoving something (hand, arm, leg, foot) into my rib cage (hence the heartburn).
Food cravings: Cold cereal is still in rotation. I haven’t been too hungry the past few days with the sickness and what not, so I can’t really decide what my ‘cravings’ are. As of this morning, I would have told you I had none and don’t talk about food in front of me. Luckily, I’m feeling better right now.
Aversions: No serious aversions…except for the aforementioned ‘this morning’ where all food sounded like an aversion…I’ll be glad when this junk goes AWAYYYY.
Labor Signs: Some braxton hicks, but nothing unusual.
What I miss: Not having a baby taking up my entire rib cage. And not having heart burn. And not feeling nauseas. Those are big things. I also miss the gym. Hoping that fixes itself tomorrow!
Symptoms: Again with the crappy memory. I am also way low on energy and SUPER tired. But I’m chalking that up to being sick…
Nursery: Nothing in the past couple of weeks. We DID order the crib though, so that’s a win! And we got the most adorable blanket (knitted by the ever fabulous Aunt Heidi) that is the perfect colors 🙂 I’ll take pictures once we get everything all set up. Whenever that happens.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Mood: I’d be a lot better if I felt normal, but I think I’m managing okay. I’m not perfect 🙂
Best moment this week: Spending time with family for Thanksgiving was wonderful! I can’t wait to see them all again!
Looking forward to: We’ve got quite a bit going on in the next few weeks. A baby shower for my wonderful, amazing friend Melissa, another for my sister, a Book Club Christmas Party – it’s going to get a little crazy around these parts 🙂
What are you looking forward to??
