How far along: 32 weeks! (as of this past Saturday)
Size of baby: A large jicama (um, excuse me..what exactly is that!?) - about 3.75 lbs and 16.7 inches on average!
Total weight gained: At my appointment last week, I had gained 2 lbs since my last appointment - I will take it! So I guess, in total, that means 15 pounds so far. And my blood pressure was 103/78 - I was thrilled to see that.
Maternity clothes: Um, most definitely. I have finally stopped wearing a bunch of the tshirts that I had before - they aren't long enough and show some belly! DEFINITELY not attractive!
Gender: The 4D ultrasound confirmed that he is definitely still a boy!
Movement: Lots - and when he does move, most of the time it is a slow, steady move across the belly. Whew - and when he's active, he means business! He gets hiccups ALL THE TIME! Like at least three times a day - morning, early afternoon, and as I'm settling into bed for the night.
What I Miss: Walking normally - I feel like I officially have the "pregnancy waddle" going! I definitely miss waking up and feeling rested - it will be a long while before that happens, I know. And when I get out of bed, I have to walk like a 90 year old - everything is sore and so stiff!
Cravings: I can't think of anything in particular!
Aversions: Can't think of anything here either. Though when I have that heartburn feeling, spicy things are definitely not a good idea.
Symptoms: Oh my - heartburn is in full force these days. It happens when I'm hungry, it happens while I'm eating, and it happens if I lay too flat at night. Thank goodness for Tums. Oh, and the back pain - no fun at all. Thank goodness for a husband that is willing to rub my back every night (even though he doesn't like to)!
Best moment of the week: The 4D ultrasound was awesome. It is so neat to know that that is the baby that is growing inside my and will soon join the world. I can't wait to see him "in person" and hold him and kiss him. And I can't wait to see how much Katie loves her little brother. That smile he did for us during the ultrasound melted me for sure.
And for good measure, here I am at 32 weeks with Katie in comparison to 32 weeks with Jack. I think I look the exact same. Maybe...just maybe...my face isn't as puffy this time around.
And this shows how I have grown since the last belly picture at 30 weeks!
And just for fun, here I am at 24, 28, 30, and 32 weeks. I'm definitely growing...that is for sure!
I think the rest of our furniture comes in this week (I hope!) and I CANNOT wait to get things going in there...furniture in, clothes washed and put away, bedding in, things on the wall...fun!! More to come on that as it happens. Whew! I wonder how much more my belly will grow...I feel as if I am close to maximum capacity now but I also know that there is 6.5 weeks of baby growth. And we all know that baby growth = belly growth :)
PS: I have found a new online collage maker since Picnik closed. It is iPiccy! VERY easy!
