How Far Along: 32 weeks
Size of baby: 15.2-17 inches long and 2.5-4 pounds aka the size of a squash (according to the Bump). I'm still not a fan of their measurement comparisons. They don't seem consistent.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 32 from pre-pregnancy...just realized that equals a pound per week. Not bad when you think about it that way ;-) and I know it doesn't look like I've gained that much. Some days it feels like I've gained 100 though...
Maternity Clothes: Same as last week. Apparently it is a big deal that I'm still wearing my "cute shoes" too, according to several coworkers. I am still wearing tank tops and cardigans most days for work and rotating all of my maternity dress pants. Scarves, belts, and blazers are a nice addition to my outfits for school. I'm so lucky that I have friends who have shared their business casual/ work attire with me! I've shared the wealth too by giving away a bag of summer maternity clothes that were passed along to me, but definitely won't fit!
Movement: Baby has a foot firmly wedged on the left side of my ribs. She has been doing a lot of rolling and I think I experienced my first hiccups too!
Wedding Rings: On. No swelling of my hands or feet so far!
Symptoms: The hip pain continues and I have had some pelvic pain that I thought was a result of a pretty hard workout last week. I think it is just my body paving the way for baby girl to make her entrance.
Sleep: Getting up a lot to use the bathroom, but still pretty comfortable
What I miss:
Cravings/Aversions/ food in general: Eating much smaller portions and I'm not typically hungry for dinner.
Workouts: Free weights, yoga, and walking.
Best Moment This Week: Learning some fun labor facts at childbirth class and some pain management techniques in reading "The Orgasmic Birth"
Worst Moment(s): Worrying about getting back into pre-baby shape and struggling with the changes that are sure to come with my independence.
Shopping: Putting together a list of the newborn necessities that we still don't have. I'm also working on freezer meals to make eating easier in the first few weeks.
