Sorry about the picture…we’re attending a costume party this evening and I’ve yet to begin with my makeup!
I absolutely cannot believe I’m 8 months pregnant. It’s scary to think that Baby White could literally be here in just over a month! We had a doctor checkup on Wednesday, and things are certainly progressing. She said that full term for me would probably be 36 weeks, but they (obviously) want to see me get to 38 or so. I’ve been having so many Braxton Hicks contractions just in the last few days though, it seems he is getting me ready to go!
How Far Along – 32 Weeks
Size of Baby – Squash…although no specification on the type. I’m thinking Butternet perhaps? Either way, he now weighs 3.11 pounds!
Gender – Boy
Total Weight Gain – 6 Pounds
What I Miss – Getting to stay out late! That costume party I mentioned above? Not sure how long we’ll be able to be out and about.
Cravings – Sugar, Candy, Treats, and Chocolate. Oh, that’s all the same category? Well it’s Halloween, after all. I’ll be glad when the mini-size candy bars disappear!
Symptoms – Tons of Braxton Hicks contractions. In fact, we had to leave the theater in the middle of a movie last night. Jeremy got nervous when I told him the tightening was happening pretty frequently and began timing them – they were two minutes apart! He called the doctor, who insisted I immediately guzzle 24 ounces of water and lay on my left side. All was well after that!
Maternity Clothes – I purchased my shower attire, but nothing came from the maternity store. Just fun, slim-fitting dresses and sweaters to show this baby off!
Worst Part of Pregnancy This Week – Definitely missing out on the ending to Cloud Atlas. From what I saw of it, I give it two thumbs up, however!
Best Part of Pregnancy This Week – Realizing that I have 3 showers within the next coming weeks. I am so blessed with friends and family that already love this child!
