32 weeks.

Baby #2- 32 weeks.

No. I'm not delivering the baby. That is Lucy behind me!





How far along:  32 weeks. 2 days. 

Size of baby:   The baby is the size of a squash. Our baby weighs between 2.5 to 3.8 pounds and measures 15.2 to 16.7 inches.

Weight Gain: 18 pounds. This week I have been at 16.5- 19 pounds. I was hoping to only gain 20 but it doesn't look like that will happen! Oh well.  The good news is even if I gained 5 pounds per week for the remainder of my pregnancy I would weigh less than I did with Lucy! Let's pray I don't. I'm hoping to gain at a max 1 pound per week!


Maternity Clothes: Yes. Since it is so warm I have pulled out my dresses, capris and shorts. Most of my summer maternity clothes are still too big. I'm not going to buy anymore so I'm wearing a lot of the same stuff!

Gender:   I almost asked the voodoo people at Jackson square if they could tell me what the baby was but I decided I could wait 7 more weeks to find out! 

Movement: The baby is pretty active. Especially when I am stationary! I need to move more! 

Food Cravings/Aversions: Just trying to get back in the hang of counting my calories. I'm also trying to tame my sweet tooth! I've also wanted Diet Dr. Pepper. I want everyone to know that I quit drinking caffeine starting January 2011. I have just now started taking more and more sips since entering the 3rd trimester!

What I miss: Bending over. I did clean the baseboards this week and decided that I'm too pregnant to do that everyday!

Sleep:  I have slept pretty well this week.  It's nice to be back home. 

Symptoms:  I've had more energy this week. I've been trying to put my house back together after being gone for vacation!

Best Moment of the Week:  My Doctor's appointment on Tuesday. It's the only time in my life that I'm excited about going to the doctor. I think that is a perk of being an obgyn, your patients are excited about seeing you! We also went ahead and scheduled my c-section! That's right Baby Bost has a birthday!


What I look forward to:  My Doctor appointments are every 2 weeks now! 

The End.
