Pregnancy Survey- 32 Weeks

How Far Along: 32 weeks

Size of baby: By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You're gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, he'll gain a third to half of his birth weight during the next 7 weeks as he fattens up for survival outside the womb. He now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). His skin is becoming soft and smooth as he plumps up in preparation for birth.

Total Weight Gain: 18 lbs

Sleep: It's getting a bit more difficult to get comfy. I hug a long pillow that goes underneath my belly to sleep.

Symptoms: Feeling pretty good, I am starting to get tired more at night after coming home from work/making dinner and all that, but it's not until 9-10pm so I guess it could be worse.  It could also be the holiday time and rushing around to get everything done.

Cravings: I could go for some pizza after hearing my sister say she had Pizza Hut.

Gender- Max David

Movement: He's still moving, not as crazy as the past couple weeks, maybe he's moved?

Maternity Clothes: Yup, and just wearing some things a size up from my normal is working pretty good still.

Best Moments this week: I loved going to take a tour of the hospital. I've never been to North Side and it is really nice there. The delivery room is huge and the rooms you go to after are all private and have private bathrooms and all that fun stuff. We now know where to drop off and check-in. It is getting more real and you could have left me there to have the baby and I would have felt good about it. I am almost ready.

What I'm looking forward to: I am so excited for the coming days. Michelle and James arrive this afternoon and mom, brother and sister-in-law tomorrow! Then it's baby shower time and Christmas festivities with family. It's going to be a fun weekend-week ahead.

Milestones: My crib bedding is IN! I really love it and can't wait to get the nursery going. David did a great mock-up of the closet and we'll be using some IKEA storage items for inside the closet. I'll document to show you how we're doing it. I am looking forward to getting a lot accomplished within the next 10 days. I am really starting to sprout now, lol I say this every week, but the belly is growing rapidly.
