Wahoo BABY - Ummmm...I think I/we grew from last week a lot!
Charlie acted like he wanted to join the picture - however he didn't smile.
And look at how LARGE she looks. And low. Sheesh! No wonder my pelvic area hurts carrying that around all day long!
I finally got him to change his SMUG impression a bit. What a cutie.
How Far Along? 32 weeks
Size of Baby: size of bok choy (?)
Gender: Little baby GIRL
Weight Gain: 29 lbs
Maternity Clothes: yes- and it's getting HOT. However, I wish my arms were toned to make up for my huge belly!
Nursery: Ordered the rug and going to order a few more things that we still need- like a second camera, changing pad cover. I rearranged the room last week though...and I'm excited because I'm going to put a little "reading nook" on there with pillows, books and quiet toys. Eventually for her, but in the mean time for her brother to make him feel welcome in her room but encourage quiet play. Yes, I know that won't probably happen- but it's worth a shot, right??
Movement: She's still moving and shaking and I am thinking she's head down because most kicks are up in my ribs.
Symptoms: Well folks- it's official. The swelling has started. And the water weight has started. I am happy for my week by week with Charlie because I went back to the 32 and 33 week posts with him and this is when it started last time. Just so not a fun part of pregnancy that I like so much. With the heat, water and walking don't seem to help. No where NEAR how swollen I was at the end but had to pull out the fake wedding ring this week in fear mine would get stuck!!
Cravings: Still loving on that watermelon and Charlie is too! I'm also loving frozen lemonade at night. Very refreshing!
What I Miss: Being able to tie my shoes!
Best Moment This Week: With the nursery coming together, I love just going in there to sit and think about what all will happen in this room. Even when crazy Charlie is in there, it's so fun to think about the two of them!!
Panic Moment This Week: Walking the swelling starting really got me down. It was just not fun last time and I was hoping to somewhat avoid it but may
Looking Forward To: A long weekend with family in Iowa. My grandma hasn't even seen me pregnant and Charlie has changed so much so it will be good to see her, my aunts and uncles and cousins!
