How far along: 32 weeks! I know most people say pregnancy flies by but I feel the exact opposite. Like, I can't believe I'm only 32 weeks along. Shouldn't I be like 38 or 39?!?!?!
Baby Size: Squash!! YUM! At my doctor's appointment on Monday I was measuring a little small but nothing to be worried about. We'll confirm that he's growing properly at my next ultrasound in a couple weeks.
Maternity clothes: Definitely been rockin' the maternity jeans and t-shirts that my friend gave me on the weekends. As far as work clothes go, though, I've still been able to get away with non-maternity stuff thanks to dresses, skirts, and the one pair of dress pants that still fit (yes, I'm VERY sick of wearing the same things over and over!!)
Stretch marks: None but still not holdin' my breath for that to last. My stomach just keeps stretching and stretching and stretching!!
Sleep: Same as last week - not horrible but certainly not great either.
Gender: I think we've covered this.
Movement: definitely moving and getting cramped in there!! He prefers my right side and likes to put his foot (I assume it's his foot since at the last ultrasound he was head down) under my rib cage. Since things are rather cramped in there his movements make my whole belly 'jump' and his kicks and movements can be painful at times!
Looking forward to: plugging away at working on the nursery and my Christmas shopping!
Food cravings: Fruit...still!! I can't get enough!!
Weirdest food I ate this week: dry cake mix - my one must-have splurge before we started this new clean eating challenge!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Labor Signs: Nada.
What I miss: feeling and looking like myself...not gonna lie. Oh, and running, of course - especially since this weekend I was supposed to run a half marathon and it's been the PERFECT running weather!!
Symptoms: sore back (which I learned may be due to some fluid buildup in my one kidney so we're keeping an eye on that), sore pelvic area, tendency to be warm (when usually I'm ALWAYS cold!)
Nursery: No new progress. But that'll change after this coming weekend since Saturday is my baby shower!!
Belly Button in or out?: In and flat but one side is definitely starting to pop out :(
Wedding rings on or off?: On
Workouts: Same old. Same old. I did get my prenatal pilates DVD and did a couple of the routines Sunday so I'm hoping to work it into my workout schedule.
Things that suck: (besides the normal stuff) - when you're 32 weeks pregnant and someone asks "'How are you feeling, chubs?" Yes, someone REALLY said that to me yesterday. *cue anxiety attack*
Things that don't suck: the girls are definitely still lookin' good! Oh, and fall! I love FALL (you know - all 4 weeks we get of it here in upstate NY ha-ha) But I'm trying to soak it all in and enjoy it. It's my favorite time of year!!
