32 Weeks

How far along: 32 Weeks 1 Day
Total weight gain/loss: +13.5 lbs. On track for a total 20lb weight gain! And because I'm a dork, I've done a graph...

Stretch marks: I'm not sure. Under my belly I have these four little red marks (two on each side of the belly) that were skin irritations and now kind of look like stretch marks but Kevin says they're not indented so I don't know if they're stretch marks.
Belly Button: Still in.
Maternity clothes: Nothing new.
Sleep: After a really painful night (which was also bad because Kevin and Les bedrailed me) I was ready to go back to the couch. But since that night it's been good.
Food cravings/aversions: None.
Gender: Boy!!! Because of the job situation we're not going to paint his room or put up the wall border that matches his set. I want to save it for the new place.
Movement: Everyday! I can tell the difference between him moving around and kicking/punching. Also I think he's turned inward because he's regularly making my innards feel beat up on.
Best moment this week: Well the nicest was being invited to join a mom's group by one of the bunco ladies that apparently is by invite only. Also I ordered our diapers from Amazo.n at a great deal. Things are happening!
What I miss: My normal lunch spot (a grocery store)! It's closed for refurbishment and I'm lost w/o it!
I am looking forward to: Ultrasound this week! Kevin is going with me. Also the carpet is going in this Wednesday!
Weekly Wisdom: Stock up on diapers!
Milestones: 80% downloaded! Also we got two after birth baby books from the library - What to Expect in the First Year (which I got at the shower but somehow didn't end up in my suitcase) and the first Babyw.ise book.

Congrats! I love the graph :-D I have been thinking about you lately- hoping the job situation is looking good. Have you already found a new place? Did you get my email a while back?

OMG, a graph. Girl after my heart! Sorry about not getting good sleep, but you're so close to the end. I am sure it will be here before you know it! Keep up the good work (I am sure GV appreciates it!)

I kept What to Expect the First Year on my bedside table throughout all of the kids' first year. It was quite worn out & dog eared by the time Ben his is 1st bday. :)

if I can add my $.02 ...

Please return the Babywise book. Babywise has been known to cause failure to thrive. There's a warning against it by the AAP which tells me a lot. I read it after DD was born but it seemed so unnatural to me. We're all born with our own circadian rhythm, so why put a new human being on YOUR'S? You know? A MUCH better bok I would recommend is The Baby Book, by Dr. Sears, and also Happiest Baby On the Block. Those two are lifesavers and basically tell you what your motherly instinct already knows. They just give you confidance knowing that mothering your son and seeing where he leads is the best way to go!!
