This week, Baby is the size of a: Squash
How far along? 32 weeks
Due date: March 25, 2013
Total weight gain/loss: 10 lbs
Maternity clothes? Pants yes all the time and a combo of maternity tops and regular tops still.
Sleep: I've said hello to 4 am for the past week and while it isn't new for me to be up a few times during the night, I've started to get up and stay up for an hour or so right around 4. This is mostly because the baby likes to be up around this time so it's hard to fall back to sleep.
Best moment: We've made a good amount of progress on the baby's room and we're to the point where I can start working on furniture for the room!
Movement: Yep. Loving the early morning kick boxing class a little less everyday. One trick we have found is that if Nate puts his hand on my belly the baby calms down within minutes. This bums him out a little because he hasn't really gotten a lot of chances to feel the baby kick but it's great for me at night when I'm trying to fall back to sleep.
Food cravings: Nope. I have been enjoying homemade frozen yogurt sundaes a couple of times a week which just makes me happy.
Symptoms: These past couple of weeks I've just felt really tired and more uncomfortable. I can feel the baby pushing against my ribs when I sit which is fairly uncomfortable and my hip pain is getting worse so moving is not a ton of fun.
Feeling toward Pregnancy: I feel like I'm just riding out the pregnancy at this point. Everything is going fine and we're making adequate progress on the baby's room so we're just taking it a day at a time and counting down until we get to meet our baby!
What I miss: Running but I would even take walking normally at this point. I am so slow and definitely feel like I'm waddling.
What I am looking forward to: Next Monday we are having another ultrasound and possible getting carpet installed in the baby's room!
Milestones: We attended the epidural and newborn class so we now know all about what is going to happen at the hospital before the baby comes and after the baby comes. Now we just have the birthing class to go! We also are officially in the much safer zone. Babies born at this point have a really good chance of survival so, while not desirable, it is a little bit of a load off knowing that we've reached a good point.
Just for fun, here is a front view vs side view. Since you rarely look in the mirror from a side angle (at least I don't) I don't realize how big the bump is getting until pics are taken.
