How far along?: 32 weeks and 8-ish to go! I can’t believe 32 weeks is here already! Wow. Less than two months left and I’ll be holding a screaming baby girl.
Maternity clothes: I still haven’t ordered the beautiful maternity shirt I found from Target yet. I’m kind of sad about it, but I’ve decided to see if I can wait it out and order fun nursing cami’s and tops. I actually need those more. And with limited fundage, I’d probably better just wait for what I really need. This is what being a responsible adult is like. Boring!
Stretch marks: Ok, I still don’t have any new ones, but the ones from Gunnar are really starting to show more. Boo! Good thing it’s nowhere near bikini season. Not that I’d be wearing one anyway.
Sleep: J made me go to bed early last night. (You will understand why when you read the worst moment this week.) And by “made me” I mean he shut off all the lights and electronics downstairs and went up to bed. I had nothing else to do but follow. Only problem was I’d had a tad too much ice cream with chocolate sauce. So I was tossing and turning with restless legs and the whole bit. I couldn’t fall asleep for about an hour. But I did get some much needed rest!
Best moment this week: Uncle Davey (J’s brother) came to visit us this weekend. He and a friend were here to watch another friend compete in a national rock climbing contest. (Their friend got third, BTW, so now he’s third in the nation. Crazy!) Anyway, it was really fun to see Dave and get to hang out with him and his friend, Michael Moore. (No, not that Michael Moore.)
Worst Moment this week: MONDAY. What is it with Mondays? I had a bad one last week too. Yesterday I woke up tired and stayed that way for the rest of the day. And Gunnar was a total whiny-pants. (Oh my word. Mama needs some earplugs!) We just sat around all day – two bumps on a log. It was sad. We’ve both got some sort of cold that makes us super cranky.
Movement: Moving all around in there. I can tell the space is getting tighter and tighter for her though. She keeps trying to stretch out but she just can’t. There’s nowhere to go!
Food cravings/aversions: Really not much to report here. Though I was craving some Cuties the other day. I had J pick up a bag from Costco yesterday, and they do not disappoint! I gave some to Gunnar for the first time today. He ate three. Guess that means he likes ’em!
Belly Button in or out?: Just continuing to get flatter and flatter. Boy it looks weird. Gunnar still loves it though!
What I miss: My nice, clean, spotless house. Oh wait, nope, I must be thinking of my mom’s house. Well, I miss my mostly maintained house. It’s gotten a little out of control lately. But today I worked pretty hard getting it back into relatively good shape.
What I am looking forward to: Gunnar getting over this cold. Also, we’re having one of our good friends, Johnny, over for dinner on Sunday. We haven’t seen him in a while so it will be fun to catch up!
Milestones: Genevieve is almost 4 pounds and around 19 inches long! She’s probably in the head down position now, which is the best possible place for her to be for birth. (I think she is in this position because I feel a lot of toe tapping on my ribs.) Her digestive system is all set to go this week. And her skin has turned from see-through to opaque. She’s looking more and more like a newborn!
Symptoms: Mostly just tired this week. And it’s really difficult to bend over to pick up Gunnar’s toys. Kid needs to figure out how to clean up after himself. 🙂
