Weekly Check-In: 32 Weeks/8 Months!


How far along: 
31 weeks
How big is baby: Pineapple!
Baby may have turned so she’s in the head-down position by now, poised for her trip down the birth canal. And you may have noticed your nipples looking darker. That’s so a preemie can see them for breastfeeding -- isn't your body so amazing? 

Total weight gain:
+22.5 pounds (Yes....I lost 3 1/2 pounds)
Maternity clothes?
Belly button in or out?
About the same... pure suckiness. Once I get comfortable, I'm out... but lately I'm waking up with horrid heartburn and have to sit up for awhile, then try to lay back down. Ugh....
Best moment this week: 
Less than 10 weeks. This week makes it only 6 weeks (5 1/2 now) until I hit the "full term" mark and 9 (8 1/2) until my EDD, which I doubt I'll make it to. Soooo....less then two months until I meet the little one! YAY! 
Food Cravings: 
None really. Milk... I love milk when I'm pregnant!
Food Aversions:
Carbonated beverages.
Insomnia, lower back and hip pain (to the point where I can't walk in the morning), crazy dreams, hemorrhoids, and all the other usuals. Heartburn is back with a vengeance...even taking zantac twice a day--I'm still having to pop but hopefully that means she has just as much or MORE hair then our Gabriel did. :-)
She's my strong crazy girl. She usually keeps my belly looking all crazy and lopsided. She loves curling into the left side, but I don't get much kicks anymore because she's SOOOO BIG. So I usually just see her movements and feel her rolling moving legs and arms. She has TONS of hiccups, which Gabe had a lot of them too. I don't remember Gabe's being sooo powerful, because hers hurt sometimes.

What I'm looking forward to: 
Gabe's reaction to his sister. He loves babies, and I think he knows one is coming soon. 

What I miss: 
The energy I had to play with Gabe....

8 months pregnant! Still not on bedrest!!!! Only 2 months to go!

Next appointment: 
April 2nd @ 11am!!! :-)
