32 Weeks, or so

Today I am 32 weeks and 2 days pregnant… which means I have about 8 weeks (hopefully a little less!) left. The last few days have been so full of travel, family and friends that I haven’t even had a chance to take my “32 weeks” photo, which I totally planned on doing. I had to settle for a pic from my Mom’s phone for this one.

32 weeks

Two days ago, Husband and I were busy driving a little over 12 hours from our home in Tennessee to my parent’s home in southeast Texas. I just knew it was going to be the most uncomfortable ride of my life, but I drove the first six hours and felt pretty darn good the rest of the trip. We got Starbucks, a little too much junk, jammed to Frank Sinatra’s Christmas music, let Belle hang her head out the window and actually enjoyed the drive more than can be expected. I hope the drive back goes just as well!

Anyhow, at 32 weeks (or 8 months) pregnant here’s my latest stats:

Weight gain: about 15 pounds

Stretch marks: none so far, fingers crossed!

Belly Button: so far out, it’s frightening

Symptoms: Rights side of ribs are pretty much in constant pain and breathing has become a challenge. I spend much of my time stretching back to make more room and taking long deep breaths.

Good side effects: My hair, nails and skin are freakin’ awesome. I have NEVER had such clear skin!

Sleep: I’m getting up somewhere between 1-3 times a night, but it’s not so bad. Honestly, just getting out of the bed is the hard part. It’s more of a roll out of the bed at this point.

Cravings: I’m just hungry a lot, but have to eat small meals and snacks because I get full so fast…and then hungry again 30 minutes later.

What I miss: feeling comfortable

Looking forward to: My baby shower in Texas is this weekend and my shower in Tennessee is the next! I am so so so excited to see what Luna gets!

Workouts: I am still working out six days a week, and still doing the Asylum most days with Husband, but it is soooo modified that it barely resembles what Shaun T is doing. My goal is to workout for the same length of time, keep moving and to just try and work the same muscle groups they are working.

Overall health: Doc says the baby and I are just perfect and he expects no complications! Yay!

I can’t believe how close it’s getting to her due date! Only a couple more updates until she’s here!

Cheers!
