How far along: 32 weeks
Total Weight Gained: 25 pounds
How big is baby? “By now, baby weighs 3.75 pounds and is about 16.7 inches long. Gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to the baby. In fact, he/she'll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb. She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.
Maternity Clothes: of course
Sleep: ehhhh….could be better, could be worse. I wake up a LOT to go to the bathroom.
Best Moment of the Week: Had a dr. appt. last week. I was in and out of there in NO time…and everything is still looking good. Measuring right on target this week. BP is good. Really nothing exciting to report!
Movement: oh yes….always! When I lay down for bed it seems to be CRAZY time for the baby.
Food Craving: Nothing in particular…just an unusually large appetite! I could just eat and eat (and I have been)
Food Aversions: none
Morning Sickness: nada
Gender: don’t know that time!
Symptoms: I pulled my back out this week, so back and neck pain. Also having lots of pressure and some cramping.
What I miss: being slim and sleeping through the night!
What I'm looking forward to: Only 56 days (or less) to go!
