How far along: 32 weeks
Baby size: Large jicama--whatever that is (length average: 16.7 inches and weight average: 3.75 pounds)
Total weight gain: About 15 pounds or so
Sleep: Getting comfortable is definitely getting more tricky--especially when she's in certain positions. However, once I'm asleep, I'm sleeping like a rock. I have also been having really vivid dreams about random, unimportant things that I wake up wondering if they were real or not.
Movement: All the time--and super strong. She has some body part--bottom or feet or something hanging out near my ribs quite often now. If I lift my right arm and take some deep breaths, that usually coaxes her out. She hit my arm so hard with her foot today that it propelled it off my stomach. Pretty funny.
Food cravings/aversions: Sweet tea, citrus things. Still a pretty strong aversion to most authentic Mexican food. Nothing sounds overly wonderful right now.
Pregnancy Symptoms: Fatigue, sore body, and pelvic pain. I've also started to have some back pain in my lower, right back. I've had tons of achiness but I think I've been trying to get a cold on top of regular pregnancy pains. There were a couple days that my arms were even aching. A headache and neck-ache have also been pretty common. I've also had a few pain-free Braxton Hicks. I could keep going, but I won't bore you. :)
What I miss: Normal energy level and not being in pain every day.
What I'm looking forward to: My first shower a week from Saturday. I'm also not trying to wish time away at all (it's been a prayer of my heart)...but I'm ready to have my body back and my baby here.
Milestones: For me-- I've hit that "miserable" feeling of pregnancy. For Adeline--She has hair by now and is spending her days plumping up.
Best moment this week: Our breastfeeding class was really informative and went really well.
Moments with Justin: He was pretty entertaining on the way to and leaving our breastfeeding class. Also, it was neat to see how it struck him how important breastfeeding is for Adeline and how adamant he is about it. I'm so thankful to have such a supportive hubby as my partner during such a life-changing time.
