i haven’t posted in forever and i feel so bad. i’m working on a few big blog posts, they will show up later on tonight. i’m so sorry everyone 😦 i just haven’t had the interest in writing lately. but there have been some pretty fun things that have happened lately! so i’ll just do a mini-update for right now:
HOW FAR ALONG: 32 weeks!
BABY THIS WEEK: he’s around 4 pounds now! (according to numerous sources) and about 16.7 inches long! so he only has a couple more inches to grow before he comes out 😀
MY WEIGHT: well, i had a doctor’s appointment today, and i weighed 153. that makes a total of 30 pounds gained so far. this is a number that i’m pretty comfortable with.. i was 153 at the last doctor’s appointment as well so hopefully this is a sign that i won’t gain too much more weight!
SLEEP: eh. some nights it’s harder to get to sleep than normal but i just take tylenol pm and cuddle up next to my hot box, andrew, and pretty soon i’m drifting off into sleep-land.
BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: andrew got a job! 😀 finally, after four months. he’s working as a “mason man” as he calls it. basically just pouring concrete. but he seems to really really like it so far, so that’s awesome :)!
SYMPTOMS: my stomach has been extra itchy lately. no amount of any kind of lotion helps. but oh well, i can ignore it. i’ve been having the usual heartburn every day. but i told dr. meyer about it today and she recommended that i try zantac instead of my usual tums because tums could be what’s causing constipation. (but they are good for that little amount of extra calcium that they give!) i’ve been having lots of tiredness lately, but i’ve also been doing a little more around the house lately since andrew has a job now. (which is good because i need to start moving more!) everything so far has been very very tolerable. but i think i’ve only been telling myself that because i know how much labor is going to hurt, so i’m just trying to be a big girl about all the pain 😉
MOOD: i have SERIOUS mood swings. i find them hilarious at times but most other people don’t 😛 i try to keep my emotions in check, but for those days when i can’t and i actually let loose on people, i blame sawyer 😉 afterall, why not!
MOVEMENT: sometimes i can see elbows, knees, arms, feet, hands 🙂 it’s awesome. except for when it tickles! i never thought it would tickle! there are also times when it hurts a bit but that’s only when he tries to get all up in my ribs. which is a big pain >_< but also tolerable!
WHAT I MISS: my flat stomach 😛 but i do ever so love my evergrowing baby bump though 🙂 especially when i can see him just chilling in one spot for awhile (like he happens to be right now)
LOOKING FORWARD TO: finally meeting my little woodcutter 😉
i'm working on a very important post that will probably be posted either later tonight or within the next week. ya'll will love it 🙂
