How far along? 32 Weeks!
How big is baby? 3.75-3.9 pounds and ~17-19 inches long.
Gender? Boy-Henry George
Weight gain? I don’t know for sure. I think about 20-22 pounds total. I have an appointment on Tuesday, so I will find out for sure then.
Symptoms? Heartburn and shortness of breath. I go upstairs to get something and I have to sit down until I catch my breath before I do when I went up there to do. I’ve also become that annoying person who takes the elevator up 1 floor. BH Contractions anytime I do anything active…like walking or cleaning.
Food cravings? Iced Tea. I bought some mix to make it and John wasn’t happy about the possible caffeine and sugar in it. So he got me some decaf tea and now we make it ourselves. Also, fruit snacks and mandarins.
Sleep? Once I get comfy, it’s pretty good. Sometimes I just can’t get comfy all night long. But it could be worse. Sleeping in a hotel bed this weekend wasn’t good at all.
Movement? Yes. But less than before. My baby book says that’s normal and I still get my 6 kicks in an hour when I count them. So I try not to worry too much. I had my first kick in the ribs today. I wondered when I would feel one of those.
Also! After dinner on Friday night I felt this huge pressure just below my ribs. So I felt it with my hand and I’m 100% sure it was a bum pushing me. John felt it too and he agreed. Woo!
Other Stuff: I still have no stretch marks. My belly button is still an innie but on its way out. My linea nigra is getting darker under my belly button, but it’s still pretty faint above my belly button.
What I am looking forward to? My appointment Tuesday. I’m still having appointments once every 4 weeks and I feel like everyone else at this point gets them at least every 2 weeks. Weird?
Pregnancy Moments with John:
R: Can we go on a weekend away every year for my birthday? Just you and me?
J: Well Henry too…right?
R: I think I’ve reached the stage where my face got fat. I was hoping that wouldn’t happen until much later.
J: I don’t think so.
R: Really? Because I’m almost 100% sure.
J: If anything, you look cuter.
