HERE is my 32 week bumpdate with M
How Far Along: 32 weeks! Yay, it feels good to be that far along. I read that if the baby happened to come at this point there is a great chance that they would be okay. So, with my cerclage and always anxious of preterm labor, that makes me feel a lot more at ease.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I am still right at 17 pounds gained. I’m so glad it is less than when I was pregnant with M. Not that I gained a TON that go around it’s just I’m already higher than I’d like on the scales, so if I can keep the pregnancy weight gain within reason and stay healthy then that is for the best.
Maternity Clothes: I haven’t had to buy anything new, but with the weather getting cooler I am enjoying some of my warmer clothes now. I have several little cardigan type sweaters that aren’t necessarily “maternity” but they are still cute even with my belly bump sticking out.
Gender: At this point we have put off announcing anything for so long that I almost think we should wait until baby is born to announce “boy or girl”…..
Movement: I LOVE feeling this little lovebug kick and squirm all over. There are certain times of day when baby is especially active, right around 4:00pm and then again around 8:30pm are SUPER active times. I think baby is having a jazzercise class in there. I also got to feel some hiccups yesterday. I didn’t ever feel those when I was pregnant with M. I’m sure they happened I just didn’t know what to feel for or expect. This was a repetitive little twitch over and over again so I’m pretty sure it was hiccups. So cute!
Sleep: I have been having a little insomnia on occasion but nothing too serious. I can be so completely exhausted but once I actually get in bed it takes forever to get to sleep. So weird!
What I miss: Well…. this week is the start of Fall Break for Kenny and we are usually packed and heading out the door on some great adventure but we have got so so so many things on our to do list and with me needing to stay off my feet we had to cancel any trips this fall break. Bummer, I know Kenny is missing traveling but thankfully we are getting a lot done.
Cravings: I am still chugging decaf iced tea. I think it’s a good thing because it is forcing me to drink a lot of (tea flavored) water which is always a good thing. I am loving all things Italian too, spaghetti, lasagna, pizza…. it’s pretty strange because the last time I was pregnant I was NOT a fan of Italian food at all.
Best Moment this week: Moving M into her big girl room. She was so excited and I am so proud of her for making that transition so smoothly.
