Less than 2 months to go! My pregnancy books are saying that I am officially in my 8th month now. WOW, I can hardly believe it!
And on top of that, it was a wonderful week. First, my mom and mother-in-law were in town this week for my baby shower on Saturday. It was so awesome to have them both here for the occasion. I love them both and am so lucky our families are wonderful, kind, caring and that they get along. (I know…super lucky!)
I’ve been heard saying that I want to include my family (both sides) in this process and that is completely true. But, after this week, I’ve realized it’s as much for me as it is for them. Their support, love and stories have been amazing throughout this pregnancy.
If you can’t read the board, here are the stats:
Age: 32 weeks
Height: ~16.7 in.
Weight: ~3.75 lb.
Notes: Daddy got to feel baby’s hiccups this week (drawing of my belly with hiccup quivers)
How far along? 32 weeks
Total weight gain? 32.5 pounds (Getting back on track! Not that I’m limiting my food intake to get here though.)
Maternity clothes? Of course.
Sleep? Hit or miss again. It was difficult falling asleep a few times this week, but once asleep I can get a few solid hours. I’ve also found that sleeping with a fan on has been helping.
Miss anything? My lap. I am used to being able to work while watching TV on the couch and that is getting harder and harder every night.
Movement? She’s starting to push out which is really fun for both me and Brett.
Cravings? Not really.
Aversions? Not really.
Labor signs? Not that I really feel them, but there could be some Braxton Hicks action going on.
Wedding ring on or off? Still on.
Looking forward to: The upcoming Steve Yates Memorial Golf Tournament and seeing our friends. Brett’s family has done an awesome job raising money for melanoma research again and we’ll all get together on Saturday to play golf and celebrate what a great man Steve was.
