Pregnancy Journal – 32 Weeks Pregnant

Wow, 32 weeks pregnant already! Can you believe it?! Time is flying, isn’t it? This week had some of the same challenges but I worked through them. Check out my week below…

Pregnancy Journal Button32 Weeks Pregnant

About Baby This Week: (from BabyCenter.com) By now, your baby weighs 3 3/4 pounds (about the size of 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, she’ll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb. She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.

How am I feeling? I was off of work for 5 days straight and my back was, dare I say, feeling somewhat better. I still had my moments, but I actually had TWO moments of NO PAIN!!! It was awesome, short lived, but awesome! So, other than that my back has still been causing a lot of pain but we know that’s going to continue until I have baby. I’ve been having really bad heartburn, too. I wake up in the middle of the night with heartburn and have it numerous times throughout the day. I’ve also still been really tired…like I can take a nap with the little ones and then still be ready for bed that night at 8pm.

Food Cravings/Aversions: I’ve been wanting milk a lot this week. Other than that, no major cravings.

Sleep: I wake up 2-3 times to go to the bathroom. I wake up when I turn because of the back pain. BUT, in between I get good sleep.

Baby’s Movement: Baby is moving lots! I love feeling her move but some of the movements do hurt a bit! lol

Weight: I am still at a five pound total for this pregnancy. No gain/loss this week.

Next Appointment: I am going every two weeks now so it will be at the beginning of the new year!

What happened this week? When I was off of work I got all of the Christmas gifts wrapped. I did almost all shopping online this year since going to the store is just too much. It was great to get it done, but then I wanted Christmas to hurry up and get here. haha! I’m ready for everyone to open their gifts! I love the excitement! Not much else happened this week. It was pretty slow. Welcome to my world! Lol

Something that upset me: I’ve been pretty moody/emotional this week so a lot of little things upset me. Nothing major.

Something I am looking forward to: I’m so excited about Christmas! Earlier today I was more excited, but hubby upset me tonight and some of my excitement was ruined. GRRRR. Now, I don’t feel too excited at all.

Boy or Girl? Those strong feelings I had early on about gender proved to be right!!! We’re having a girl!!!!!!!!

Things I am doing to prepare: Nothing. I know, I know…I need to get busy.

Countdown: I’m at 32 weeks pregnant, so 8 weeks to go if we go to 40 weeks!

Pregnant? How are you doing with the added holiday stress?
