Pregnancy Update: 32 Weeks

I'm writing this on Monday night- a day earlier than I'm used to writing these updates! Tomorrow, Tuesday, 2/3, will be so busy that today is the only time I'll have to write. Also, FYI- this is a picture-heavy post!

32w 2d

How far along? 32 weeks (I do these a week behind as a recap of the previous week, so I'm actually 33 weeks today.)

Total weight gain/loss: 144.2 lbs! I'm steadily increasing by 3-4 lbs each month.

Maternity clothes: Yes! I've found the greatness that is maternity shirts... My lower belly is no longer exposed and cold!

Stretch marks? Yes! I still have the same stretch marks on my boobs... and I think I see some creeping up on my belly.

Sleep: Sleep has been pretty good. I still get up 2-3x/night in order to use the restroom, but I fall asleep right away. I can't complain!

Four-Time Champs!! (Although at the time this picture was being taken, we were under "Deflate Gate"... Plus, Cristhian had to crouch down to get into the frame- haha!!)

Best moment this week: WINNING THE SUPER BOWL, BABY! Plus, the numbers on the scale and the image reflected from the mirror have been playing serious games on my mental health. I found my measurements from last March (when Cristhian and I weighed everything we ate, exercised like crazy and kept body measurements)... and I don't feel so bad about my weight gain- the 35 lb increase is basically 85% baby and fluids!

Worst moment of the week: I had my first/second dose of actual contractions on Thursday and Saturday! The pain wasn't what was horrible... it was the fact that labor can come any day! I need Lamby to chill in my womb until I come back from visiting her grandparents in Ohio. 'Nough said!

Miss anything? I miss walking for the sake of getting around! What brought on the contractions was that I walked 3,000 steps (~2 miles) just running errands. Seriously! What the hell!

Movement: Lamby is incredibly active between 10:30am-12pm, 3pm-4:30pm and 10pm-12am! I used to count kicks, but Lamby's activity is so on point that it's kinda no use.

Food cravings: Nuffin'! Ever!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.

32w 2d

Have you started to show yet: Oh, definitely!

Gender Prediciton: Lamby is a girl! Cristhian also finalized our "going home outfit" for her, too!

Labor signs: The tension and pressure in my lower abdomen causes anticipation... but it doesn't hurt, per se. Once I change positions, or relax, the tension goes away! I just need her to stay put until we come back from Ohio!

Symptoms: I have a skin tag-like thing on my right nipple, off/on pain in my rib (not where the baby kicks), right beneath my breast and constant pelvic pain. Also, my right foot was swelling last week- it's no longer swollen!

Belly button in or out? In... ish.

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Happy or moody most of the time? I have to say I'm still neutral.

Looking forward to: Going to my parents!, having our babymoon and relaxing!

Also, this past weekend, S and I were able to spend a few hours taking some photos for Part I of our maternity series. I'm so elated as to how the lot of the pictures turned out. They're amazing! I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I do! :)
