How far along? 32 weeks, 8 months preggo... oh September, please come quickly!
Total weight gain/loss: Well, at my last visit with Dr. P, I gained four lbs., so that puts me at a total of 16lbs.
Maternity Clothes: None... haven't ventured shopping much during the past heat wave :)
Stretch -----: Stretching is what I have to do at night, for my legs... Charlie came back to visit me again last night. Thankfully, this visit was a bit shorter and less intense. Scared the daylights out of poor Jason again though, but he'll definitely be ready if I go into labor in the middle of the night!
Sleep: Doing pretty well, a little achy some mornings, and had another visit from Charlie, but other than that... no complaints. Actually one, Wiley REFUSES to sleep past 4:45am - 5:00am... We have forgotten what it is like to sleep in. And if he doesn't let us before Gwen gets here... we may never sleep in again :(
Best Moment of the Week: Catching a break from that ridiculous heat wave...
Movement: Tons! She is such a little wiggler, and she really loves moving around when her Daddy talks to her before bed. It's so adorable.
Food Cravings: Well, our friends, Jenn & Brian sent us 6 cupcakes from Crumbs in NYC (Thank you SO much guys), and Jason and I shared one, sometimes two a day! They were gone in a blink of an eye... so I guess they were my current craving, they were AMAZING! But other than that, a lot of fruit, especially Watermelon! Mmmmmm.
Labor Signs: None of true labor, but yesterday I had my first REALLY uncomfortable Braxton Hicks contraction, unpleasant but not unbearable. Good thing we took that class, because I knew not to panic, which is what I would normally do. Ha ha.
Belly Button, In or Out? In. Gwen still likes pushing on it though.
What I Miss: Being able to function like a normal human. But anything for my little girl!
Weekly Wisdom: Accept all advice given to you, but that does not mean that you have to follow it. No two experiences are the same.
Milestones: 8 Month mark, and completing our Childbirth Education Class... it made me a little less nervous about the labor and delivery process.
What I Am Looking Forward To: Our next class (Newborn Care, Dr. P says this one is the most important) and having time off finally to finish Gwen's room.
What Gwen's Up To: Ready or not, Gwen's getting ready to emerge. She's probably in the head-down position by now, with her bottom facing up. She is still the size of a Squash.
