32 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 32 Weeks today.

Size of Baby: He weighs around 3.75 pounds now (the size of a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long from head to heal.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I've gained around 27 pounds total.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes.

Gender: Its a BOY!! Jackson Thomas Smith

Movement: Yes!! His movements seem bigger now, like he's actually rolling around in there rather than just a jab or kick.

Food Cravings: Pasta and sweets, not much different from my non pregnancy cravings. :-)

What I miss: Being able to walk from my car to my office (about 2 blocks) without getting winded, wearing my wedding ring and sleeping through the night.

Sleep: Still not sleeping great. Just can't seem to get comfortable and am having to get up a lot to use the restroom.

Symptoms: Feeling really tired lately. I literally feel like I could sleep all day. I'm also having some sciatic nerve pain off and on and some heartburn.

Best Moment this week: My sister's baby shower this past Saturday.

What I am looking forward to: Having our maternity pictures taken on Sept. 3rd, my shower on Sept. 10th and meeting our sweet baby boy in just about 8 more weeks!!
