32 weeks

How Far Along: 32 weeks, 2 days
Size of the Baby: Large Jicama (cuz that helps...), 16.7 inches, 3.75 lbs
Weight gain/loss:  Appointment is Thursday and I'll know then, but I feel HUGE. I'm really struggling with it. I know that I'm well within where I should be for weight gain (under, even) but I feel gross. I hate hanging over my pants and I feel so swollen. My face looks huge! I know that weight gain is part of pregnancy, but it's still hard to see those numbers going up.
Sleep: So very tired, but can't stay asleep for any decent period of time. So tired.
Best Moment of the Week: Starting the New Year - it's the year of baby!

Movement: Same. Moves allllllll the time. Last night Hans and I just laid in bed and watched my stomach dance around for about half an hour. It looked like someone was setting off fireworks in there.
Symptoms: Swollen. Nauseous. So very nauseous. Heartburn.
Food Cravings: Don't want food. Just thirsty.
Gender: :)
Belly Button in or out: Same
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing in particular, it seems. Lots of smells. Refried beans is the only one I remember.
Labor Signs: None.
Wedding ring on or off: On
What I miss: Cheeses - brie and ricotta and gorgonzola... I miss them.
What I am looking forward to: More nursery decorating
Nursery: Started several decorating projects this week, but didn't finish any. I'm working on some bunting, a frame gallery, and a mobile. We also received our changing pad this week and somehow that makes it feel more nursery-ish. I still need to figure out curtains, a rug, a lamp and a crib skirt. Whew!
Emotions: I feel like I'm moving in slow motion. I have so many things I want to get done in the next eight weeks and everything is taking longer than I'd like. At the same time, I'm not in a hurry for time to speed up.... those eight weeks can take their time.
Stupid things I have done: Just more clumsy. Lots of dropping things and bumping into things.


  1. Remember ~10 weeks ago you still awaiting that movement? In another ~10 weeks you'll be able to hold it in your arms =D

  2. You look great! And that is such a cute sweater! Wow, less than 2 months left...you're almost there!!!
