32 Weeks

Your baby's the size of a squash!
Still growing, your baby weighs in at about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds and measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches.
Your baby at 32 weeks
  • She's getting ready for her descent -- she's likely in the head-down position now.
  • And she's probably feeling a even more cramped.

Due Date: February 9, 2012!

Weight Gain:30. ick. but Oh well.

Symptoms: Baby isn't the only one that's feeling more cramped! Momma is too! I have a hard time stretching out now. Breathing is becoming more labored too!

Cravings: grapes and clementines! yum yum

Aversions: chasing two kids around. :)

Sleep: Sleep...oh sleep. I haven't slept well the last couple of night and I'm about to spend the next week or so in a bed that isn't mine! I'm nervous about that! Hope that I can sleep well again soon!

I am loving: Ady got to feel the baby move the other night. She declared that the baby was trying to get out!

I miss: comfy sleep!

I am looking forward to:Christmas! I think the kids are going to be thrilled with their gifts this year!

I'm spazzing about: getting everything ready for baby. The nursery need to be cleaned and I haven't even started doing her laundry yet!

Best thing about this week: vacation!!

Milestones:passed my GD test. Baby can still roll around but soon she will get 'locked in' to her head down position. And I'll start going to the midwife more often now.

Movement: She's discovered my ribs!

It's a...: Little Lady!

Clift update

My mom pointed out to me that I should stop 'seeing red' (see last post) and update my blog! I guess she's right! I've 'forgiven' the husband for leaving me for a week to go to DC. :) So what's happened since then....
  • we had a great turkey day. Brother-in-law came down from AK to see a friend and spend the holiday with us. 
  • I attempted to grill our turkey this year. Didn't work out like I'd hoped. We couldn't get the grill hot enough. But it gave the turkey a great flavor for being on the grill about an hour. 
  • I braved Black Friday so that I could purchase a new camera! I didn't get the camera I set out to buy, but I couldn't be happier with our new Canon Powershot 300!
  • All the Chirstmas shopping is done! All the gifts are wrapped and mailed or waiting to be loaded into the van for our trip home!
  • Owen has started three word sentences. last night he said 'dad, hurt me!" when Ian was tickling him too hard! That's one for the memory books! :)
  • Ady is becoming a little book worm! Yay! 

That's about it I think.  When the holiday's are over, I will switch gears and focus on getting everything ready for the arrival of our little bundle. :)
