Pregnancy Quiz

How far along? 32 weeks, 1 day

Total weight gain/loss: +31 lbs. Oooooh yeah.....had my dr.'s appointment and I only gained 1 lb. I was really excited. I was worried it would be bigger with all the candy and cake that's been around the last couple weeks.

Maternity clothes? Yes. My goal is to not buy anymore. I haven't bought a ton, but I think what I have will last me throughout the pregnancy.

Stretch marks? Not yet.

Sleep: I stopped using my pregnancy pillow and I feel like my hips don't ache as much as before. I don't know if its because I stopped using the pillow or if its normal for them not to hurt as bad now. They still ache a little bit, but not as bad as before. The last two nights I've woken up and my left hip and butt is aching. Usually it will ache for about 8 seconds after I take pressure on it but it didn't stop aching for a few minutes (even when massaging my butt - TMI?). I think I am putting pressure on my sciatic nerve.

Best moment this week: I had my shower on Sunday and that was really fun. It was nice to have family and friends together to celebrate "Bob" coming into the world. I wish I had a chance to talk to people more but I did the best I could. The other highlight was my dad started paining the nursery last week. I'll post pictures once there are more updates.

Movement: All the time. When I roll from one side to the other at night, he lets me know if I'm putting too much weight on my stomach.

Food cravings: Not really.

Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: Nope

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: Still am really missing laying on my back and stomach. I also find myself getting out of breath. Babycenter.com says "with your uterus pushing up near your diaphragm and crowding your stomach, the consequences may be shortness of breath and heartburn." No heartburn yet but I find myself getting out of breath when telling a long story while walking Buddy or just doing simple things around the house - like walking up the stairs! It will be nice to have more room in there to breath. :)

What I am looking forward to: Tonight is the first night of our child prep class. I'm a little nervous Rob might yell out "Ewwww" or "Oh god" when things get graphic.

Other Updates: At my appointment yesterday she said he is still in the normal range (not too big, not too small). I also got my swine flu shot yesterday. Stay away Swine Flu! The lady at the front desk kept going on about how there was very little testing on the vaccine and how if I get into contact in the next 2 weeks I could still get it. She was a Debby Downer but I still feel good about getting vacinated.

Bob weighs about 3.75 lbs (same weight as a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long.
