32 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 32 weeks! Only 8(ish) more to go!
Size of baby: About 16.7 inches long and about 3.75 pounds
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 21 lbs.(only 4 since my last appointment, which was a relief because, while I'm not against gaining weight [duh, I'm supposed to], I gained a LOT in short increments of time the last two visits, so I'm glad it's evening out now)
Maternity Clothes: I'm in mostly maternity clothes because I don't want to stretch out my "real" clothes, but I still wear some regular tops.
Gender: We're having a boy! Landon Matthew. :)
Movement: This baby is very active. All the time.
Sleep: What's that? I finally got out my trusty body pillow, and the verdict is... it doesn't help at all. I take forever to fall asleep, and then when I do finally drift off, I end up waking up multiple times a night because my back hurts, I have to pee, or Avery fell out of bed and I can hear her on the monitor (fortunately the last one only happens about once a week).
What I miss: Being skinny :) Okay, so that's a little vain. Sorry. I also miss being able to bend over like a normal person. Everyday activities are getting a little awkward. Hey, I can still see my toes though.
Cravings: Pretty much anything sweet
Symptoms: I have to pee like all the time. TMI, but annoyingly true. And I'm pretty sure I'm starting to waddle. I feel like a whale.
Best Moment this week: Washing and organizing Landon's clothes! I haven't gotten them all put away yet, but that will happen today. I got out some of Avery's neutral stuff (i.e. white onesies, green blankets, etc) from the attic, and I've been gradually building a collection from garage and consignment sales. I haven't washed any of his new stuff yet, but everything else is organized and ready to put away!

I also start two-week appointments now, so I go back to the doctor next week! That means that we're getting really close to the end! Hopefully that'll motivate me to start nesting. Maybe?

The 2nd time around my sleep was horrible. Hope are you able to get some rest during the day.

You look great! I HAD to keep working at the end so every night about 30 min before bed, oh probably for the last several weeks, I took 1 benedryl. It really helped!
