baby alex: 32 weeks

i sort of forgot this was sitting in my draft folder waiting for a photo. whoops!


how far along: 32 weeks

how big is baby: the size of a large jicama (16.7 inches long and weighs 3 3/4 pounds)

weight gain / loss: i started at 142.4 lbs and was 160.5 lbs two weeks ago. i'm almost to the twenty pound weight gain mark, weighing in at 162 lbs now. i've gained 1.5 pounds in two weeks which is great.

symptoms: i'm getting full really easily now. is that a symptom?

cravings / aversions: i'm sort of over water some nights and need something with a sweet flavor like orange juice or root beer.

movement: plenty of movement, but not quite somersaults. more like random bulges in my stomach.

gender: boy

belly button: we've moved past half in / half out and are at about 3/4 out. might as well call it an outie now.

sleep: sleeping pretty well, but if i do wake up i can't fall back asleep without using the bathroom first. that's getting annoying.

what i'm looking forward to: figuring out when this kid will arrive. i have an appointment coming up where we should start talking about the timeline for alex's arrival.

what i miss: my wardrobe. i feel very limited now, down to about 5 dresses and 10 tops for work. i realize that means i can wear different things to work for 3 weeks straight, but that doesn't mean i like the lack of options.

highlights this past week: when i asked leila who was in my belly, she FINALLY said "baby alex." for the longest time the response has varied from belly button to food to princess cinderella. i'm considering this a step forward in her understanding that a baby is on the way.
