32 weeks

how far along?  32 weeks
how are you measuring?  33 weeks
size of baby? According to Baby Center our baby is 16.7 inches long, about 3.75 pounds, and the weight of a larger jicama. (What is that?)  
heartbeat? 135 bpm (at our 32 week appointment)
total weight gain/loss? +29 lbs (I would like to keep my weight gain at no more than a pound a week from here on out. It is so stinking hard to not gain too much.  I have found that it is SO easy to gain weight during pregnancy.  I'm hoping it falls off as easy as it has come on!! But that is wishful thinking I'm sure!!)
maternity clothes? Maternity clothes all the way!! I went to Motherhood Maternity this week and got a few things for my showers coming up and bought some nursing bras.  My regular bras were just too small and I figured if I need bigger bras, I might as well buy ones that I can nurse in.  
stretch marks? Not yet.  I'm still hoping they won't make an appearance!!
sleep? I slept pretty good this week.  We have been so busy the last few weeks.  I think I'm just going to bed exhausted.  Of course I'm still getting up 2-3 times a night for a bathroom break!
best moment this week? Our glider came in!! Oh my goodness, it is so comfortable.  It will definitely make those 3am feedings not so bad.  We also got the curtain and a wall hanging put up and a few other little projects for the walls started.  I'm hoping to have his nursery all complete by the end of April!!
movement? Lots and lots.  He is a busy boy, always have a party in my belly.  I LOVE it though! He gets the hiccups about twice a day.  He almost always gets them in the morning before I even get out of bed and then some other time during the day too.  
food cravings? Ice cold water.  I can't get enough of it.  I'm always SO thirsty. 
gender predictions? It's a BOY!!!  Pearson Davis Link!!!
what i miss:  I know I keep saying this, but I really miss being in shape.  I know you can work out during pregnancy, but I'm so afraid to over do it. I do not want my belly pain to come back.  I'm just starting to feel my face, legs, arms and butt grow and I don't like it one bit.  
what i'm looking forward to: I have my first shower on Saturday!! I'm so excited!!
how are you feeling? No belly pain this week again!! Praise the Lord.  I really thought that it was going to be a long miserable end to this pregnancy if my belly pain continued.  I am so thankful that I'm not hurting anymore.  I have been having LOTS of Braxton Hicks contractions.  I've been feeling them since about 25/26 weeks, but I'm definitely having more of them lately.  I have at least one almost every hour.  They don't hurt, but they sure are annoying.

Don't worry about your weight. You look great, it will come off, and it's sooooo worth it!
