32 Week Update

How far along? 32 Weeks!! 8 months! Holy heck! Time is moving faster and faster.

Baby's size? Over 16 inches long and weighing in at over 3 pounds!

Weight Gain? Still 18lbs. Not too bad considering I've only gained ounces for 2 weeks worth of bed rest.

Stretch marks? Yes :( These bastard things decided to show up this last week after everything else that has been going on. I'm not sure why they even have. I hope they won't get too bad and hopefully they'll at least be not very noticeable after she is born.

Belly button in or out? Still half way like always.

Sleep? I really don't care for this question much. I usually sleep between 3 & 4 hours then I'm up for at least an hour if not for the whole entire day.

Foods I am loving? Raisin Bran, chocolate as always.

Foods I am hating? Heavy foods, greasy foods, fast food.

Best moment this week? Getting out of the house today and hubby letting me walk a bit in Target, I'm losing my mind being at home, the contractions come if I'm moving or not, hydrated or not, and empty bladder or not. I figure I deserve a chance to walk once in a while.

Movement? Yup, she's quite the mover. Last night at dinner I was drinking a strawberry lemonade, and it was tart, and every time I'd take a sip she'd jump!

Symptoms? Everything? Just about I feel. Contractions, B Hicks, stretch marks, nausea, headaches, bloody noses, peeing all the time (due to bladder punches-- Thanks Abigail), nesting, bed rest, bruises from shots (still!) that will help keep baby in....leaking boobs sometimes, cravings...

Gender? Girl :)

What I miss? I love being pregnant, but the last 11 days I've missed being able to do stuff.

What I will miss? Feeling her move, feeling her respond to sounds and foods.

What I'm looking forward to? Hopefully getting her name done, that's my goal for today... getting off bed rest? Making it another week.

Weekly Wisdom: Don't take simple things such as walking to the kitchen for granted.

Milestone: Making it 2 more weeks since the hospital visit, (I was only 30 weeks then), and making it to 8 months!

Emotions: All over the place as usual. I'm starting to lose it I'm sure.

This whole no sex thing is ridiculous, it's hard to remember it's dr's orders, it's bad enough feeling unattractive because of the stretch marks and such, but to get turned down is beating me up.

Also, I feel unprepared, so much was supposed to be done in her room by now, but I've been stuck in bed, so it feels like nothing is done. Though it's just decorations and extras now.

Excited, I'm so excited to meet her, we're hoping to hold her in till 37 weeks so only 5 more weeks and she'll be here. (I'm sure she'll be early, if contractions come just sitting here blogging they will most definitely come if I'm up walking the mall religiously, for hours.)

Nervous, I'm wondering if we'll even make it to 37 weeks, I don't know how long I can fight off these contractions. I also wonder how it's going to happen.

Thankful, I have so many wonderful people in my life to help me out, or who are willing to help.I'm also so thankful for this little girl.

Sad, I feel so lonely lately. I feel like i'm just there and everyone is together and happy. It's strange and hard to explain.

By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You're gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, she'll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb. She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.
