How Far Along: 32 weeks and 1 day.

Size of Baby: According to BabyCenter, the baby is the size of a squash, is 16.7 inches long, and weighs about 3.75 pounds.

Total Weight Gain: Still not talking about it...

Gender: It's a girl!!

Maternity Clothes: Yes and yes.

Wedding Rings On/Off: On

Stretch Marks: A few, but I haven't found any new ones {yet}. Still crossing my fingers that they will eventually go away.

Sleep: Sleep is just okay. I'm waking up a couple of times a night, pretty much whenever I move. I'm also waking up an hour or two before my alarm goes off and I usually can't go back to sleep.

Cravings/Aversions: I had a craving for warm brownies with vanilla ice cream this weekend and have been eating it every day since. So good.

Symptoms: Back pain has been a killer this week!! It started late last week and has gotten a little worse every day. It's not really achy or sore, it almost feels like I have a pinched nerve or something. Heartburn is happening almost every day, and I'm still super short of breath. The Braxton Hicks are back, but not nearly like before. I probably have a few every day, pretty much only while I'm at work. Oh, and I'm crazy tired.

Movement: Lots! I'm even starting to see big twitches on my belly from the outside, too. I'll be watching TV and feel her move, and out of the corner of my eye I can see my blanket practically jump. I'm excited to be able to see little elbows and knees rolling around.

Mood: Very happy most of the time!!

What I Miss: Just the silly stuff that doesn't really matter. I'm sure I'll miss being pregnant after she's born, so I'm trying to soak it all in and not wish the weeks away. It will be over before I know it.

Looking Forward To: We're going to our 32 week doctor's appointment tomorrow! I just love going to these appointments! Also, my mom and I are going to do some shopping this weekend for the nursery. She's going to help me decide on some frames for the nursery from the *several* I've saved to my favorites on Etsy!

Best Moment This Week: I was gone all weekend at a church women's retreat, which was so much fun, but seeing my husband on Sunday night after being gone for two days was so wonderful! I missed him like crazy. Having Monday off was pretty wonderful, too!

  1. This chalkboard is super cute!! You look great, and it's really hard to believe we'll be very soon saying "next month!" I'm anxious to hear about your dr. appointment. I hope the back pain eases up!
