How far along? 32 Weeks Pregnant
Total weight gain: 36.9 lbs.
Stretch marks? A few little on the underside of my belly and a couple on my hips (you’d think my hips were big enough already! lol)
Symptoms: Contractions are getting stronger, but no more frequent. Morning nausea and a little bit of dizziness. Swelling has been constant now…and no more rings or jewelry. This week I also had some crazy numbness in my legs as though both of my legs went to sleep. I’m pretty sure they’ve “dropped” so they’re probably sitting on my nerves.
Sleep: I wake up/roll around a LOT and get up to use the bathroom a lot. The pregnancy pillow helps, but there’s only so much it can do lol. The usual: About 6-7 hours a night and I try to squeeze in a nap when I can.
Best moment this week: 1) Breastfeeding class at the hospital where our nurse actually had IVF triplets herself! She was able to offer some good advice and information on feeding multiples and practical tools. I’m excited because she is a lactation consultant with the hospital and her husband works with the pediatrician’s office that we’ve chosen. 🙂
Worst moment this week: A little stress with our house that we’re renting/normal drama of being stuck in Georgia
Miss Anything? I still LOVE being pregnant and am so thankful that I get this amazing opportunity.
Movement: LOTS!!! Their movements are about the same, but definitely feel more exaggerated with their lack of room and increase in size.
Food cravings/aversions: GETTING HUNGRY A LOT!!!! Lobster, fried clams like CRAZY, fries, steamers from home in Maine. 😦 And sammiches again 🙂
Symptoms: Feeling great but getting really sore off and on. A little bit of back pain and quite a bit of stretching sensations and soreness. Starting to stay swollen.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The usual: Mornings as well as Cigarette smoke and cologne/perfumes.
Labor Signs: Contractions haven’t been too bad this past week and not showing any signs of labor yet 🙂
Wedding rings on or off? They’ve had to come off for good (during the pregnancy at least).
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly happy still I am getting more emotional and cry really easily (over sad and happy things). Hoping they stay safe and “baking” for at least 4 more weeks, but we’re getting more and more anxious/excited to hold them!
Looking forward to: We start seeing MFM every Tuesday until the birth starting this week! That means we get to see our sweet babies every single week until they’re born! We have to get the car seats installed and get Daddy his new truck before the babies get here. Then we just need to put the finishing touches on everything! 🙂 🙂
