31&32 weeks

How far along: 31&32 weeks. 

Total weight gain: 29lbs. no weight gain the past two weeks. 

Maternity clothes? yes! 

Sleep: still going good, up around 3 every night with baby girl moving. Some nights I'll go back to sleep right away other nights it takes a few hours. Lately been up around midnight to pee also.  

Best moment this week: baby has become even more active and I can watch her just roll around my tummy and it's so fun to see. Maternity pictures!

Miss Anything? tummy sleeping

Cravings/Aversions: have not wanted Chinese food this whole pregnancy and still don't. I have been wanting waffles or pancakes with syrup a lot. 

Symptoms: Heartburn, tingling on upper right side of tummy, first Braxton hicks contractions, rib/upper back pain. Can barely see/reach my feet. 

Looking forward to: Resting! We are finally done traveling for the holidays and I'm excited for the upcoming weeks of nesting and relaxing to come before baby arrives.

29&30 weeks

How far along: 29 & 30 weeks

Total weight gain: 29lbs

Maternity clothes? Yes

Sleep: I am so very thankful for my sleep. Some nights I am awake for a few hours but most nights I wake up for a bit and pass right back out. 

Best moment this week: Doctor appointment! I love going to the doctor and checking up on baby. I am measuring 32 weeks right now, I have consistently been measuring ahead the whole time. Baby had a fast heart rate and seems to be breech at the moment, so lots of prayers she will flip which she has plenty of time to do. 

Miss Anything? I miss being able to do things on my own and at my pace. It is very humbling to be slowed down and have to rely on others much more. 

Cravings/Aversions: Peanut butter milkshakes. 😍

Symptoms: Heartburn (easily goes away with zantac), restless legs, rib pain (less than last few weeks). belly button is pushed out so far. a few stretch marks on my sides. my arches were swollen for the first time this week. You can see my belly button through shirts now! I decided to take my wedding rings off in case swelling picks up, I don't want them to be stuck! 

Looking forward to: We ordered a lot of items for the nursery, I am so excited to add some decor to her sweet space and make it more of her own. Also ordered her blanket and now for the hospital, so crazy she is going to be here so soon!
