Pregnancy Update #5

How far are we: 32 weeks and 6 days

How big is baby: Connor is about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long and weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds - he is about the size of a pumpkin squash. He is getting big, that's for sure!

Total weight gain: 21 pounds total. At my appointment this morning, the doctor told me I was doing wonderful! I only gained a pound and half since my check-up 3 weeks ago and I swear it's because if I drink too much, I don't have room for food. BUT if I don't drink at least 100 ounces of water a day, I get leg cramps at night.

Maternity clothes: I am all maternity! I struggle with tops that fit me right. For example, the top I'm wearing in this week's photo is a bit long. I know that it will be okay in the next few weeks as my belly grows. I can't help but think I look silly in some of my outfits. I'm okay with that though, Momma has to be comfortable!

Stretch marks: NONE! Thank you, Jesus. 

Movement: TONS! He is a mover for sure. Especially at night. He is head down so I am feeling a lot of kicks and punches around and above my belly button.

Sleep: I've been so blessed! I've been sleeping so well. I only have problems when James is out of town which has been a week each month since I don't know when. Before pregnancy, I would take an Ambien and pass out. Now, not so much!

Best moment this week: I spent my entire Labor Day working on Connor's room. It is about 80% complete. I hope to have it done within the next week! Once I do, I will have a nursery reveal post.

Food cravings: None really. I thought I would look forward to "needing" certain foods but it's been nice to eat whatever and it not be anything crazy.

Labor signs: None and I'd like it to stay that way.

Belly button in or out: In and I'm hoping it doesn't pop!

What I miss: Being able to carry things without bumping into the walls. For example, I was carrying a basket of laundry upstairs and didn't give myself, belly and basket enough room and ended up running into the wall. I earned a bruise on my belly with that one!

What I'm looking forward to: We get to go for a 2nd session for our 3D/4D ultrasound on the 10th. Hopefully we can see a little more this time.
