How far along? 32 weeks 6 days
Total weight gain/loss: eh I kind of have given up standing on the scales even. It’s just depressing but I have to at my drs appointment today. 🙁
How big is baby? Baby is the size of a squash. Still growing, baby girl weighs in at about 2.5 to 3.8 lb and measures about 15.2 to 16.7 in long.
- She’s getting ready for her descent – she’s likely in the head-down position now.
- And she’s probably feeling even more cramped.
Maternity Clothes? Yup, I have maternity clothes. That’s I’m sure all that fits. I wear gym shorts and hubby’s tshirts to bed and my belly shows between the two. So super sexy… not!
Stretch Marks? I saw this earlier this week (don’t remember where) and it made me feel a little better. Now after baby if I could get my stomach to look like this it would be even better! (sorry about the one word, I don’t like that word at all)
Best moment this week? The Ultrasound this week… although I haven’t had it yet. My drs appointment is this afternoon.
Movement? Those kicks and or punches are soooo sweet. Sometimes they are uncomfortable and this week something has been getting jammed into my right ribcage. Hubby read that she’s starting to lose room in there so she is moving less… but It’s hilarious to watch my stomach do the wave.
Food Cravings/Aversions? So I’ve not really had cravings. No more so than before I was pregnant. I have had aversions… steak we learned. and the bacon onion dip mix from the Amish store. So anyway last week hubby had a steak at one point and I was actually able to eat it. I’m still not ready to run out after steak but it wasn’t bad. And I absolutely LOVE steak.
What I miss: Prior to being pregnant there were nights I’d have to get up to pee during the night but otherwise… I could sleep on my stomach and sleep through the night. I kind of miss that but we’re coming back to that… maybe. I might just be in a habit. I also miss not having my hips hurt all the time.
What I’m looking forward to: The Ultrasound this afternoon, obviously and the baby shower on Saturday thrown by 2 of my really GREAT friends!!
Nausea/Vomiting? I’m doing okay this week on this front… Hopefully I don’t jinx myself. Where’s the wood to knock on?!?!
Labor signs? well I don’t think so….
Gender? We have had them verify it’s a girl 3 different times. Think it’s a girl?!?!
Belly Button in or out? It looks like a frigging orange parking cone most of the time.
Wedding rings on or off? Sadly they’re off. I do have the “cheater” ring just so people know I’m married but I want my rings back!
Sleep? The stress of school has been lifted so that hasn’t been a factor. I wake up most mornings feeling like I’ve been run over by a freight train or a mack truck or something, but otherwise I can pretty well sleep through the night, you know minus the bathroom breaks. I have been having weird dreams though, of course I’ve always had weird dreams, I’m just having more of them.
Weekly Wisdom: I think you remove stress and I haven’t really felt like napping during the day although about 5pm I’m ready for bed. I have not been going to bed that early though.
Due Date: Thursday June 26, 2014 was what we originally thought. Then I was told June 30, then July 4th, then June 26, then June 27 and after the 3-D ultra sound June 28. I guess she’ll come when she’s ready, right?
