How far along? 32 weeks on Sunday April 15, 2012
Weight gain/loss: +21.6
Size of baby: as heavy as a jicama? and as big as a squash
Maternity clothes? I guess I can’t expect to fit comfortably into my clothes at 32 weeks pregnant…so yes, maternity clothes are a must
Stretch marks: none
Belly Button in or out? neutral…and according to Sarah it looks funny…what do you expect?! haha
Sleep: sleep continues to be very broken…baby P bee boopin around and recently I have been waking up with a hard cramped up belly…possibly braxton hicks? (actual contractions which are indicative of false labor…just the uterus practicing I guess)
Food cravings: see aversions
Food aversions: FROYO…JK! ha I am starting to wonder if this is even a pregnancy craving…maybe just my newest food obsession…something had to take the place of Arctic Zero
Pregnancy Signs: So the other day I head to the sporting good store for some new walking sneaks. I am browsing around minding my own business and next thing I know I am being put in handcuffs and being accused of shoplifting a basketball! BUHHHAHAH! really?!
Movement: the other day I thought baby P was trying to escape..he was pushing out like no other…my tummy even felt sore the day after!
What I miss: painting my toenails is not so much fun anymore…strains my tummy…looking forward to pedis with the ladies!
What I am looking forward to: And the BIG NEWS is final…Matias and I are now homeowners! We closed on a place on Monday morning. It is a townhouse about 1.5 miles from where we are renting an apartment currently in Alexandria. AND we are going to be neighbors with DC Rainmaker! Maybe we can help test out some gear?! HEHEHE So what am I looking forward to? being situated. We closed but are doing a rent back for 2 months…which works because we did not have to break our current lease, which is up end of June…so this puts our official move-in date at June 15. baby P is due to arrive on June 10…this should be interesting…
Best moment this week: childbirth class last Sunday was very informative and made me feel like we are really ready for this. I have gone through a lot of severe anxiety phases with this pregnancy…OMG WHAT am I going to do with a BABY?!…but the more I learn and become aware of what all is going to happen the more calm I feel. after class we headed to Reston for the first official Tri With Belly gathering…really awesome to have this growing group of friends entering the world of having children together.
Milestones: 4 years ago from last Tuesday (tax day) Matias and I met for what was becoming a frequently ocurring bike ride. After the bike ride we shared our routine friendly hug…apparently we both decided we had had enough of that and moved in for the big first kiss the rest is history…
Weekly Wisdom: A mother’s joy begins when new life is stirring inside… when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone. this makes me weepy…since baby P began growing inside of me I have a sense of comfort and security in that I am never alone
Going the Distance: baby P has swam: 350.50 miles and biked: 1249.48 miles and done: 43 hot yogs classes
