32 Weeks

How far along:  32 weeks!
Baby is the size of: a jicama...dont' know what that is.  She is about 3.75 pounds and 16.7 inches long.
Sleep: If I can get comfortable, I'll sleep a good 3 or 4 hours without waking up.  Otherwise, it's every 1 or 2 hours.  The other night I woke up at 3:30 starving, so I got up, ate a bowl of cereal, watched TV, then went back to bed at 6.  I guess this is REALLY preparing me for the sweet girl's arrival!
Cravings: Milk, peanut butter cups (mmmm...), breakfast food (think pancakes, waffles, bacon, etc.)  I'm actually eating smaller & more frequent meals as I fill up quickly.  More like 3 small meals and 2 or 3 good sized "snacks" a day.  I went to the doctor today and only gained 2 pounds in the past two weeks, so that was a relief.  I wasn't sure what that scale would reveal after 2 weeks of holiday eating!
Symptoms:  Backache, difficulty getting deep breaths, my feet don't really seem super swollen - but my shoes feel tight and uncomfortable...I'd just rather wear slippers all the time!  I've had this weird cramp up under my ribs on the right side; I'm assuming it has to do with the baby's position, but I'm planning to ask my doctor.  I went to see her today, but she had to leave for a delivery before I got a chance to meet with her, so I rescheduled for tomorrow.  It was either that, or wait for an hour in the waiting room that seemed to be 100 degrees.  Of course, I'm hot often these days... What a complainer I am!
Milestones: Made BIG progress on the nursery yesterday.  I actually can leave the door open now!  It was at the point that I had to keep the door closed all the time because it would make me so anxious to walk by and see the state of her room.  However, now it is looking great!  I came up with some storage and organization solutions (thanks to the bestie!) and now things are looking much better around here.  We are calling our girl by name these days, which is fun.  Our childbirth class starts next Monday, so I am getting excited about that.  I also checked out some books from the library and have been reading about breastfeeding.  So much to learn!

Overall, getting more and more EXCITED to meet this sweet little girl! 
Pictures of Christmas to come soon.....
