You guys. I am sucking horribly at these bumpdates! It sure is difficult staying on top of life with the chaos of the holidays that’s for sure! And my sweet little primary class was definitely no help in keeping me on track. So, I am skipping the 31 week bumpdate and will just do 32 weeks (I’m assuming they would both be very similar anyways as the weeks just keep melting into each other!).
How far along: 32 weeks!
Gender: Unknown … the general consensus at this point is a boy … I am not convinced.
Weight gain: I would guess somewhere around 23lbs. I forgot to weigh myself at my last appointment, but there is another one coming up soon!
Maternity clothes: are everything. Hopefully I will be getting some more at Christmas!
Rings on or off: They are off. The sausage fingers have become an actual thing these days and oh my goodness my fingers are just so stiff and sore, especially in the morning when I guess they haven’t moved much. It’s a terrible feeling. I knew that the swelling might be a thing, but definitely wasn’t ready for the stiffness/soreness.
Belly button in or out: Innie … on its way into an outtie I think. Or a nothing.
Sleep: Pretty good. I can’t wait to catch up on all my sleep during the holidays! Hopefully my body (and this tiny human) let me sleep in some!
Best moment this week: Well, I have discovered through conversations and some reading that the 1 hr GTT is definitely not accurate. Anyways, I did the two hour one and everything was fiiiiiine! So give me all the delicious Christmas treats and cookies and chocolate and gingerbread.
Worst moment this week: Turns out my blood is going to have to be monitored every few weeks. Which means more needles for this Mama. Sigh.
Miss anything: Beer. Again. Especially with the holidays creeping up, I know there will be beer and wine everywhere!
Movement: Yup! This little bubs is moving around lots and it is the most amazing (and kind of strange) thing I’ve ever seen and felt.
Cravings: Cinnamon rolls. I think I have to make some over the holidays!
Looking forward to: TWO WEEKS OFF. Except I am told that two weeks off and then going back to work after having the chance to relax and sleep is actually even more exhausting. Celebrating our last Christmas together as just a couple (and our puppa!), spending time with our families. I’m super excited at the fact that Christmas falls early this year so we have a whole week after Christmas/New Years to just do nothing. Okay, we probably will do SOME things. Like wash/put away baby clothes and start packing hospital bags. WHAT.
