How Far Along: 32 Weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 15 pounds. As you can see, baby is a-growin!
Gender: It’s a girl!
Movement: She loves it when I eat! (Imagine that?) Ha! One foot likes to hang out under my right rib.
Sleep: Sleep is the same. I am up at least once a night and am stiff when I wake up.
Maternity Clothes: I am slowly taking normal clothes out of my rotation. Today I wore another dress that I will definitely not be able to wear again until after she gets here.
Symptoms: My workouts are now the equivalent to sweatin’ with the oldies. In Zumba it is a pretty modified workout and my time on the elliptical is SLOOOOOOW. However, moving a little has to be better than nothing at all and I feel a lot better once I motivate myself to actually go. It is the getting there that is like pulling teeth.
Aversions: Fried food, alcohol, the smell of coffee, however, I have had a strange craving for it since it has been “cooler.” (Read – the 90s.)
Cravings: Still ice cream and fruit, especially watermelon. I had a hankering for sushi, but had chicken fried rice instead. Because that is basically the same.
Best Moment this week: I had several best moments this week – as always, hearing the baby’s heart beat, a reprieve in the weather and we made some progress in the room. We got our glider in, bought a lamp and my father-in-law and Tommy hung the curtain rod. My mom and are trying to dye the curtains to the exact shade of turquoise…so far notsomuch. But once that happens it will definitely be included in a “best moment” category!
