32 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 32 weeks

Total Weight Gain:  12 lbs (or 27 from my lowest low)

Baby Size:
Squash (Average size: 15.2-16.7 inches, 2.5-3.8 lb.)

    Maternity Clothes: Its starting to feel a little like fall! Its fun to pull out long sleeved shirts and jeans and experience some of my maternity clothes that were too warm before :)

    Gender: We are having a Girl! 
    Movement: Movin' and a groovin'.  Don't know why I just wrote that.  Sunday at church she started moving like a shark under water and I could see my whole belly moving!  I tried to descretely tap Neil's arm to get his attention, because if she knows that I know that she is kicking, she will stop!  Also if she knows daddy is looking she will stop!  What a silly.  So I tap tap tapped on Neil's arm and he didn't notice.  So I tried again -

    Tap tap tap.


    By the time I finally got his attention, she had stopped moving - boo!
    Sleep: Sleep is going well.  My dreams have calmed down some.  I did dream the other night that we had the baby and brought her home.  For some reason we left her in her car seat to sleep through the night.  When I woke up the next morning, I realized that I had slept through the night and not heard her cry even once.  So then I was in a panic, thinking I had slept through her crying and she was distraught.  I went over to the car seat to check on her, and she was just sitting there happy as can be, looking right at me!

    Cravings: I've been eating a LOT of cereal lately.  Its just so good and crunchy and milky and easy :)

    Other crazy symptoms: I can tell I have to go to the bathroom more than I did before.  I still only have to get up once each night, which is pretty lucky I think.  My sister said she was getting up 4+ times a night at the end!
    Best Moments this week: 
    My friends gave me the best surprise on Saturday!  They tricked me into thinking I was just going to lunch with Amanda and Abi, but actually all my friends were waiting for me at the cutest little restaurant!  It was all decorated shabby chic and my friends got me purple flowers and cake pops that match the nursery colors :)  They overwhelmed me with presents and love and I am so thankful to have them in my life - my Missouri family!

    I've been sewing up a storm.  I made some burp clothes and attempted to do another rag quilt (my mom will have to bail me out of this one - oops!)  I also made some little toys and I have hopes of making some paci clips.

    The women's group at church started this week!  I am looking forward to spending some time with some wonderful ladies :)

    We went to the doctor and he said everything is looking just great!  I mentioned that she has been hiccuping a lot and he said that hiccups are a really good sign of brain development and then he said "I think God gives baby's hiccups to test out their little diaphragm and make sure everything is working right before they are born and need to use it to breath".  I was overwhelmed!  How lucky we are to have a good christian doctor - who isn't afraid to talk about God and acknowledge that he is the one that creates life!
