32 Weeks

Sunday, June 17, 2012

How far along? 32 weeks, or 8 months!
Due Date: August 11, 2012, my prediction is that she'll come July 22 though
Total weight gain: 15 pounds
Maternity Clothes: Not really, more or less just my swim suit and jersey knit maxi dresses
Stretch marks? Nope, almost made it to the home stretch so I keep a hopefuly heart that they stay away from me!
Sleep: Most nights I still sleep really well. I am starting to have more pain in my hips and back from sleeping on my sides all the time, but once I get up and start moving, it usually goes away.
Miss Anything? Most summers I typically tolerate the heat and humidity of Kentucky weather so much better than I am right now! I seem more like a wimp about it now that I'm getting so pregnant...still have the hottest days ahead of me so I guess I better suck it up!Movement: She's actually getting more and more active throughout the daytime hours now and you can actually SEE her moving around if you look at my stomach. It's the oddest thing!
Food cravings: I've been craving sweets a lot, but that's probably more my sweet tooth than anything to do with pregnancy.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, I'm pretty sure I'm past that stage. 
Gender: Baby Girl, Caroline Leeann
Symptoms: I feel some stiches in my upper abs when I stretch, presumably from the heaviest part of my baby bump pulling down on those muscles. Some mornings I wake up with a sore lower back, but I just have to walk it off!
Belly Button: Same...halfsies
Rings: On
Happy or Moody: So happy. I had a day or two last week where I felt pretty easily annoyed with most people, which unfortunately usually means family members since they're the ones I'm around every day and the ones who tolerate moodiness, but I know the chicks in the family understand and overlook it :) Especially since I haven't been too bad at all this whole 8 months so far.
Best Moment this Week:  Celebrated both Father's Day and my newphew's birthday today, got to spend some time with the whole family together which is always fun. My nieces and I tried to conquer a fondant birthday cake for my nephew, which we actually ended up spending two days on. I love working in the kitchen with them though....making memories and the cake turned out pretty fun, too, and definitely tasted great!
Looking forward to: Unfortunately, or maternity pictures were postponed, so hopefully we'll get them done this week sometime...still waiting to hear about when they'll be. We have an ultrasound in two days as well and my mama, sister and nieces are all going to come. I got to go to all three of my sisters ultrasounds with her kids, so I'm glad to be able to have everyone along for this last one. I can't wait to see her little face!
