32 Weeks!

How far along? 32 weeks.
Baby size: A squash...and I think The Bump is running out of fruit & veggies, because a squash doesn’t seem all that big!
Weight gain: 19 pounds.
Maternity clothes: Maxi dresses, and still squeezing into my jeans when I’m feeling ambitious.
Sleep: Too good...the fact that I’m sleeping more heavily the past few weeks makes me paranoid that I’ll sleep through baby’s cries in 7 short weeks...
Gender: GIRL!
Movement: Lots of’s even getting a little uncomfortable these days when baby’s foot pokes into my ribs or my side!
Best moment this week: Our maternity photo session and getting baby’s crib bedding in finally!
Looking forward to: Our first baby shower this weekend and hopefully finishing up the nursery.
Food cravings: A club sandwich on a husband mentioned it and then I had to have it.
Weirdest food I ate this week: Nothing too weird.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Labor signs: No.
What I miss: Being stomach feels super stretched and full and my back aches all the time. Small sacrifices, though ;)
Symptoms: Feeling full all the time, achiness, occasional headaches, exhaustion...
Workouts: Still running & walking. Definitely have decreased the running mileage, but still feeling fairly fast occasionally. Just depends on the day...
Things that suck: Getting out of breath easily, like while doing laundry. If that doesn’t make you feel lame, then I don’t know what does.
Things that don't suck: Baby showers, maternity photos, and only SEVEN weeks to go!

Best moment this week: Getting some essentials for baby at Target this weekend (they had a great sale!)...a Rock n’ Play & video monitor made it seem just a little more real!

Food cravings: I wanted orange cinnamon rolls one night at like 11, and Michael didn’t waste any time running out to the grocery store to pick some up! That was the first true ‘pregnancy craving’ that I’ve had, so we both jumped at the chance. ha.

30 Weeks!

How far along? 30 weeks.
Baby size: A cabbage.
Weight gain: 15-16 pounds.
Maternity clothes: Wishing I could wear workout clothes everyday...but suffering through in maxi dresses, skirts and jeans with a belly band ;)
Sleep: Can’t complain...I sleep pretty good.
Gender: GIRL!
Movement: All the time! Baby seems to like kicking me in the ribs these days.
Best moment this week: The 3-day weekend we was SO nice to relax, spend time with family, and finally have time to clean & organize the house!
Looking forward to: Upcoming baby showers and counting down the weeks…we’re in the SINGLE DIGIT weeks now!
Food cravings: Nothing really. I haven’t been super hungry lately. Maybe if anything, just cheese, fruit, lemonade...
Weirdest food I ate this week: Nothing that I know of.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not right now, thank goodness!
Labor signs: No.
What I miss: Not having a constantly achy back.
Symptoms: Exhaustion...but getting random spurts of energy, somehow. Achiness.
Workouts: Walking and running...last week, I actually ran more days than I walked, which hasn’t happened in a while!
Things that suck: Dreams about bed rest, Michael missing baby's birth (his dream, not mine), etc. I think we both are having crazy dreams now that the countdown is really on!
Things that don't suck: Being less than 9 weeks away from meeting our baby girl....yikes, that's so soon (and so much to do!)
