How far along: 32 Weeks
How big is baby: From The Bump - The size of a squash. Still growing, your baby weighs in at about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds and measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches. He's getting ready for his descent -- he's likely in the head-down position now. And he's probably feeling a even more cramped.
Weight gain/loss: Up 2 pounds for a total of 20 pounds of weight gain.
Stretch marks: Yes. In fact the midwife looked at me today and said, "your poor belly."
Sleep: I still sleep really well if I can just get my brain to turn off when I want to go to bed. I usually go to lay down and then seem to mess around for a good 2 hours before I finally feel tired.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Nothing new here.
Movement: It's gotten more painful. I keep saying it feels like how one of the dogs sits there and scratches his bed for awhile and turns in 50 circles before finally settling down. Baby boy only does this a handful of times during the day but OW! Also the pressure on my bladder is not cool.
Symptoms: Again, nothing new in this area.
What I'm looking forward to: I'm heading to Dallas this weekend. I'm going to go see New Kids, Boys II Men, and 98 Degrees with my bestie Virginia. Then I have another shower thrown by my lovely Texahoma friends. It's a pool party but I will be sparing everyone my beached whale look and will just be soaking my cankles. The cankles will certainly be epic after the drive and the concert.
Best moment of the week: John in birthing class. We actually had a great class and I both think we got quite a bit from it.
How I'm feeling: I'm hanging in there. I really have felt really good lately. I just heard on the weather we're supposed to get to 101 degrees this week. Not cool weather. Not cool at all. (Quite literally actually)
