32 Week Pregnancy Update

32 Week Pregnancy Update

Size: Baby B is about 17 inches long, nearly 4 lbs, and the size of a squash. 

Due Date: November 2 (measured for Nov 6 at the ultrasound, but they aren't changing it). 

Heartbeat: It ranges from 122 - 166 depending on the day. 

Symptoms: Indigestion, leg cramps, shooting pain near my pelvis (I think it's ligaments). I'm moody as heck. I basically have zero time or patience for anyone who is in my way of whatever I'm trying to do. Essentially... leave me alone and don't ask questions. 

Currently Missing: Not having heartburn.

Cravings and Favorite Foods: Fruit and raw veggies. I bought peaches this week that were amazing.

Sleep: This baby thinks it's out of the womb and needs to wake up all night. If I roll over or get up for any reason it gets to kicking for a minimum of 30 minutes before I can go back to sleep.

Food Aversions:
Eggs aren't that appealing.

Exercise: I absolutely do not have the energy for it at this point.

Weight: At the last appointment I had only gained 20 lbs! That's a personal best considering I was massive last time. I also haven't had any sweeling or high blood pressure, which is really nice after the stress of Harrison's pregnancy.

Movement: Constant and painful. The baby books say movement should be slowing down due to lack of space but the baby hasn't gotten the memo.

Maternity Clothing: Yes. Some of it is even starting to not fit.

Gender Guess: Learning towards girl this week.

Side by Side: Still thinking my face is more swollen with Harrison. My belly is about the same this time, only difference is that it might be a touch lower right now.
