How far along? 32 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? +18 pounds
Maternity clothes? Are so comfortable. My mom found another pair of maternity jeans for me for $5 at Old Navy two weeks ago, hooray. I can also wear one of my favorite maternity shirts that is strictly a third trimester shirt because it's so long. When I'm not pregnant, the shirt reaches to my knees.
Stretch marks? No, hooray.
Sleep? No matter how much sleep I get, I'm still tired. I'm starting to have a harder time rolling over and falling back to sleep when I wake up to use the bathroom.
Best moment last week? Lila's personality is starting to show. If I put pressure anywhere on my belly, she kicks at that spot like crazy until I remove the pressure. I also enjoy watching my belly bump in and out when she moves around.
Movement? Lila moves so much at bedtime that I have a hard time going to sleep, seriously. She also wakes up and moves like crazy when I get up in the night to use the bathroom. Lately her movements have been more pushes/ body movements rather than kicks--I think she's running out of room.
Food cravings? I ate cheddar and sour cream ruffles chips last week and remembered just how amazing they are. When I was pregnant with Reed, those chips were one of the few things that ever sounded good during the first trimester. Apparently they're my ultimate pregnant desire.
Sickness? Ever since I threw up my prenatal vitamin, it makes me sick. Other than that, I have no sickness issues.
Food aversions? Nope.
Labor signs? None, thank goodness. I do have a ton of Braxton-Hicks contractions, which is a new experience for me. When I was pregnant with Reed, I never had BH contractions. When I was pregnant with Asher, I only had BH contractions during the last few weeks of my pregnancy. This pregnancy, I've had BH contractions since about 5 months. I get the contractions whenever I bend over or clean, and sometimes when I exercise.
Belly button in/out? In.
What I miss: I miss my back not hurting. Whenever I do something to make my back sore, I deal with the repercussions for a week before my back feels normal (ish) again. No matter how much I stretch, heat, or have Ryan run my back, I just hurt.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting this little girl! I'm also excited to dress her--she's going to be spoiled.
Milestones: I now go to my midwife every two weeks instead of every four. I love the two week then the one week appointments because somehow their frequency makes pregnancy go a little faster.
