How far along? 32 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: 17-19 pounds…bouncing back and forth.
Maternity clothes: I received the dress in the mail that I think I am going to wear for the baby shower. I bought it off of ASOS online. We will see.
Sleep: I am still sleeping good for being 32 weeks pregnant. I am experiencing some crazy dreams.
Best moment this week: Did some more nesting and organizing this week. I am starting to receive some of my baby shower gifts via mail, so I am just getting things organized. I am also working on a pretend “fire” made of felt. His room will have a tepee in it and I thought he would love to have a little fire to go with.
Miss anything? Nope, feeling great!
Movement: Tons of movement! It makes me giggle, he moves so much!
Food cravings: This week I was especially carefully about what I ate because of the impending 3 hour glucose test. I ate very healthy and hardly any processed food. Felt good! 🙂
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: No symptoms really. I am very happy to say that I DO NOT have gestational diabetes. My test came back normal! Such a good feeling!
Belly button in or out? In but I know it won’t be for much longer, haha.
Wedding rings on or off? On, but some days it seems tighter than others?
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and little lonely this last week. It has just really hit me that I am all alone down here in NC. As I am trying to get things ready for the baby, I just kinda wish that he was a little closer. I know that its for the better that he is there but I did have some moments where it would have been nice to have him here.
Looking forward to: My trip back to WI for my baby showers. I am having one in Platteville on Saturday, August 13th and another one in Milwaukee on Sunday, August 14th. It will be a quick trip but I am looking forward to it. I can’t wait to see my family and friends. I also received my 3D-4D pictures of baby and they turned out amazing!
Days to go: 56 days to go!
Baby development: Baby is the size of a jicama. He weighs around 3 3/4 pounds and is 16.7 inches long from head to heel. I am gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that is going right to my baby. He will gain a third to half of his birth weight during the next 7 weeks as he fattens up for survival outside the womb. He now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair. His skin is becoming soft and smooth as he plumps up in preparation for birth.
