32 Weeks!

How Far Along: 32 Weeks Complete!! Very, very happy to be turning 33 today!

Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: looks like I've got my baby measurements mixed up and this is this weeks prediction-  Baby is as heavy as a jicama and probably weighs about 3 3/4 lbs....I know our baby is well over this weight by now....

Weight Gain:  The Drs scale was down to 23 lbs this week. I will take it :) 

Gender: Sweet little girl

Movement: So much movement this week-all day long. Then Friday through Sunday the movements lessened. I was a little concerned, but still met my kick count requirements and felt her if I laid still. 

Sleep:  very rough! Having a really hard time falling asleep. Saturday night I was up all night.

What I miss: Work! I am a much happier person when I am working.
Cravings: can't get enough fruit!

Symptoms: back pain. I feel like an old lady!
Best moment of the week: making it to Bremy's birthday was a big goal of mine. Here is is and I'm still pregnant. It's a nice way to "celebrate" a difficult day. 
Worst moment of the week: I worked for a few hours on Wednesday and it was really hot. I ended up doing more than I had planned and knew it was too much for me. That night I was up all evening with braxton hicks. When I finally went to bed, they were pretty consistent-coming every ten minutes on the dot. After I had 6 in an hour, I called labor and delivery and luckily by the time I got on the phone they had stopped. He said it's considered normal at this point in pregnancy and is definitely a direct correlation to the busy day I'd had. It was a reality check as Drs have told me to not work at all. 

We have non-stress testing twice this week and a visit to my perinatologist on Friday afternoon. I'm anxious to see where we are at. He will no longer do cervical length checks so I'm curious to see how this appointment goes.  Very grateful to be this far along with our little girl!
