32 Weeks

Written at 32 weeks (today I am 32 weeks and 5 days)

How Far Along?  32 Weeks, just 8 to go! (Hopefully 8 or less...no more)

How Big is Baby? She's measuring small (measured 30 weeks at my 32 week appt...due date is still set at August 15th though)

Total Weight Gain: 36.5 lbs

Maternity Clothes? Always.

Stretch Marks?  Still don't have a single one and I do not put lotion on. I got lucky.

Sleep: Not quite as bad as last week. Up just two nights for a few hours. The rest of the week I slept through. 

Best Moment this Week: My favorite thing this week was reading "Peter Pan" by J.M. Barrie out loud to Lilly. Last night, Matt read her "Mister Seahorse" too. These are the fun moments I'm going to miss about being pregnant (but it will be even better to read to her in our arms). She already kicks like crazy when we read and talk to her. She already loves her Daddy :)

Miss Anything: Dancing. Like a lot. It's getting hard feeling so restricted all the time. 

Movement: She's our Karate Kid ; ) I got a crazy video of her moving all around last night. I sent it to my parents to see too. She's so active in here!

Food Cravings: I haven't really craved anything lately. I still love tuna, but I could go longer than a week now without it and I think I'd be okay. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: The pain I'm in. Also when she rolls I get a little nausea.

Gender: Baby girl!

Symptoms: I am pretty sure I have SPD (look it up if you're curious). Basically it's the worst pain in the entire world (well, worst pain that I've ever experienced in my life thus far.) I realize that labor will have it beat, but at least that ends. This has been going on daily, every second of every day, for the past month already. It's awful. If I didn't have this happening right now, I'd be so so happy. I would really not have like any symptoms. It is crippling. I cried for the most part of last night because I was just in so much pain (and I didn't teach or anything all day, actually just worked from my desk). Not good.

I've been nesting like a crazy woman, too. Is that a symptom?

Looking Forward to: Meeting our sweet baby girl! I'm getting anxious (and ready to not be in pain) : ) 


  1. i hope your SPD lets up! almost there mama!

  2. I have SPD too and it's horrible! I feel for you!
