32 weeks!

Today is: April 18th, 2013

How far along: 32 weeks 3 days

Total weight gain: 7.2 since last visit, 23.2 for the pregnancy. So much for staying under 25lbs...

Baby is the size of: A SQUASH approximately 15.2- 16.7 inches, 2.5-3.8 lb.  My belly is (just like Truitt) measuring 3wks ahead so he's probably at the upper end of those numbers

Baby is a: A BOY! 

Maternity clothing: Of course. I tried to wear a regular tshirt yesterday but tons of my belly panel was showing

Sleep:  Insomnia is finding its way back into my nights.  I'm also having a hard time staying comfortable and Charlie Horse leg cramps have started

Movement: Oh my goodness, is there ever! I don't remember Truitt's movements being so strong. He rolls, kicks, punches, jabs and I love (mostly) every minute of it. Things are starting to get uncomfortable with some movements but it is reassuring to know he's growing and active

Cravings/Aversions: Cravings? SnowCones of course, melon, chocolate, soda

Symptoms:
- Fatigue.
- Pubic Symphysis pain
-Irritability- sorry to my family and friends

 How this pregnancy is different than the first:
-Exhaustion. I know I was tired with Truitt but it seems that 3rd trimester has hit me MUCH harder this time
-Heartburn It comes and go but I swear this makes me think B is going to be a baldy!

 The best moment(s) since last post:
-Lots of movement
-Hearing the shower preparations are in full swing- it's in two weeks!
-WE SET A DATE! Unless my body or Bennett have other plans, he will be arriving on June the 7th at 39weeks and 4days.. umm THAT'S ONLY 7WKS AWAY!

I'm looking forward to:
-Working on the nursery- yah, we still haven't started
-Baby shower!
 -Getting ready for my baby boy and meeting him in less than two months!
