Oi, it's 3pm and I still haven't posted my bump update. What a week it's been. I'm working on filling a difficult role so I'm feeling a little stressed which is why it's now 3pm and I'm just posting my easiest post of the week. So, let's keep it simple because it's effing Friday! Here's my update and don't forget to enter the giveaway which ends on Sunday evening!
Due Date? Scheduled c-section date of September 20th. I imagine this chunk will arrive before then.
How far along? 32 weeks
How big is baby? The baby is the size of a large jiacama about 16.7" and about 3.75lbs. Now we know the baby is larger than that estimate but that's from my baby app and it's an average.
Weight gain? +26
What's going on with baby? Baby will gave almost half his body weight by delivery. This additional fat will keep the baby warm on the outside. The soft lanugo hair is starting to shed. Over the next few weeks his real hair and skin will become soft and smooth.
Stretchmarks? Nothing new from what I can tell at least. I'm sure they're there but the amount of stretching going on, I'll likely not know until after he's out.
Sleep? Great sleep, waking once to use the restroom and can generally get back to sleep easily. I'm finding myself waking up almost completely on my stomach so I think I need to get out my snoogle.
Best moment this week? Hanging out at the fair last Friday with Addie and Rick. She seemed to enjoy it and loved all the food she got to experience. She also got to go to her first movie Saturday morning which was fun to go through, but also stressful. We were super aware and sensitive to her being loud and needing to leave. We nearly made it the entire movie but had to duck out about 10 minutes early.
Movement? A lot of really intense jabs and shooting pains that I didn't have with Addie so I don't know what's normal and what's not. From what I've heard from other moms this is completely normal.
Food cravings? Not a whole lot really. I had my share of fair food last weekend but I could do with another gyro and fair fries.
Labor signs? none.
Belly button in or out? Slowly thinning but still in.
What I miss? Having a drink. It's been a rough couple of weeks in my new role and I'd like to enjoy one glass of whatever when we go out for dinner. It's just that time of year when you get to really enjoy it and I get to watch everyone do it.
What I am looking forward to? I left this blank last week somehow...whoops! I'm always looking forward to the weekend so we're nearly there again.
Milestones? I'm halfway through the 3rd trimester so it's become a countdown. I have officially 7 weeks until I get to hold my little guy, maybe sooner if he decides to surprise us.
Next doctor's appointment? August 15th and then my biweekly checks begin!
