How Far Along? 32 weeks! Wow 8 months, that is crazy to me!
Maternity Clothes? That is all I can wear at this point!
Weight Gain? I lost .5 pounds last week. So we are at a total of 15.5.
Stretch Marks? I may have some new ones, but still none on my belly!
Sleep? Actually sleep is painful now. Sleeping on my side is causing me to have sore hips and a sore lower back. I feel like an old man when I get out of bed in the morning! Even my two body pillows don't help. I thought I found a solution, but it only helps sometimes. The best thing to do is sleep shorter nights and now that I am on bed rest I can take afternoon naps, which are the best sleep I get!!!
Best Moment of the Week? Having the contractions calm down. I still get them, but much less frequently. I still have one or two times a day that I will get 5-10 in an hour, but I take my medicine and they calm down.
Weirdest Comment: Nothing really.
Movement? Her movement has changed, I guess there is a lot less room in there, because mostly I only feel little jabs and when she rolls or twists around. Though sometimes she punches me in this one spot and I don't know what organ is there, but whew that actually hurts!!!
Gender? Girl, Avery!
What I miss? Sleeping on my back and waking up feeling like a 28 year old!
Symptoms: The big ones are the sleep stuff. Skin is still not great. Otherwise doing pretty good!!!!
What I'm looking forward to? And of course vaca is a no go, but Ray and I are taking Thursday and Friday off together to just relax and spend some time together.
I am also looking forward to the Dr appointment tomorrow, for two reasons . . .
1. I want to ask more questions about what is going on and see that I am not dilated or have gotten more effaced.
2. This will be my first trip out of the house in a week. Seriously I haven't even gone outside (partially because it is too hot).
Weekly Wisdom: Naps!!!!!!!!!!
Milestones: 8 months
Emotions: Getting excited. Nervous to hear how things are going. I am really hoping that I am not dilated and haven't gotten more effaced. I want to know where this is headed, am I am going to have a baby really early? Are things a lot better now? And relieved that the BH contractions have really slowed down.
