How far along? 32 weeks
Total weight gain: 27 lbs.
Fundal Height (measurement of uterus): 32 cm
Maternity clothes? Oh yeah. There is no other choice in pants at this point although I do have some non-maternity long sweaters that will still fit over the belly :).
Stretch marks? Truth time - no new ones, but I do have one that I got during my first pregnancy with Sophie. In my younger, less wise days, I had to get a belly button ring. I took the ring out when I got pregnant with Sophie (or maybe a little before that), but it left a hole and a small scar and of course my growing, pregnant belly stretched the scar tissue. After 3 pregnant bellies, the scar is now a permanent stretch mark that extends about 1 inch from the top of my belly button. Oh well...lesson learned.
Sleep: I am waking up every night now sometimes multiple times during the night. I have terrible sciatic nerve pain through my right side and heartburn/reflux pain as well. It's ok...I know it won't last much longer.
Movement: All the time! I hope she is not that squirmy out of the womb :)!
Food cravings: Sweets. I have to eat smaller meals at a time now too because my stomach is being smashed and I get full faster.
Gender: Another girl!
Name: Top agreed upon picks are still Mary, Emilie, or Lily for first names and Claire or Kate for a middle name.
Belly Button in or out? Out
What I miss: Walking, sitting, movement without pain in my hips, butt, or lower back.
What I love most: My baby belly...holding her, feeling her move.
Weekly Wisdom: Slow down to cherish every fleeting moment and find time to sit and rest!
