32 Week Update

Merry Christmas!

We've been on the go since Tuesday and I finally caught a moment to post an update!

How far along? 32 Weeks.

How big is baby? Close to 18 inches and 4 lbs! 

Best moment this week: Spending time with both of our families and spending Christmas morning in our pajamas eating monkey bread!

Miss anything? Energy!

Movement: feeling less kicks and more rolls and stretches. Several times this week she has stretched and made my stomach a weird shape.

Food Cravings: Ice Cream and Cheesecake

Food Aversions: Cheese...just don't even go there.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I've noticed that if I do too much I get a little nauseous. Carrying some stuff up the stairs left me winded and queasy for about 30 minutes!

Symptoms: Is uncomfortable a symptom? That's the only way to describe it. She's running out of room and rearranging all of my insides. 

Looking forward to? Now that the holidays are over I'm ready to finish up the nursery and finally give in to Tim and pack my go bag! I'm actually pretty excited to start washing all the tiny clothes and picking out what she'll come home in.

30 Week Update and A Winter Woodland Baby Shower!

How Far Along:  30 Weeks! 
Size of Baby:  At our last appointment she weighed in at 3 lbs and was in the 57th percentile. Hopefully she will continue at that pace and not get too big. Today she is the size of a motorcycle helmet'
Sleep:  I have good nights and bad nights but when I sleep, I sleep hard.
Best Moment This Week:   Celebrating baby girl at the baby shower!
Movement: Lots. She is definitely running out of room in there.
Food Cravings/Aversions: Nothing in particular. I'm just so tired of the the diabetes diet. It would be much easier if I could eat whatever I felt like.
What I Miss: Just like previous weeks, breathing is what I miss most.
Stretch Marks:  Nope.! Hoping that if I don't have them by now Ive avoided them.
Belly Button:  Still in! I'm winning the bet!
Mood: Feeling exhausted and getting a little nervous.
Labor Signs:  I don't think so...I'm not too sure if what I've been experiencing are Braxton Hicks but there are days when I feel like she's going to fall out.
Milestones:   Bi-weekly doctors appointments start now!

Upcoming Appointments/Events: Looking forward to our last Christmas with just us. Hoping we can take a moment to ourselves and just enjoy each other before holidays take on a whole new meaning.
What I look forward to: Completing the Nursery

This weekend my Mom and Sister threw the most wonderful Winter/ Woodland Baby Shower!
I couldn't have asked for a more special day.

We are both so thankful for all the love and support from family and friends and so happy we were able to celebrate our baby girl together!
