I’ve made it to 8 months!
The rest seems to be helping keep this baby in a bit longer. I’m so glad I can move around more, but I can also say I feel it when I do too much. This week I’ve been on my own with Griffin more than usual, and taking him to the toy store was pretty strenuous on my body. I can’t wait to be able to run around like normal again!
How Far Along – 32 Weeks
Size of Baby – Squash or large Jicama
Gender – Boy
Total Weight Gain – 6 Pounds
What I Miss – Walking up the stairs without being exhausted, running errands like a normal person, picking Griffin up
Cravings – I’m still craving more dairy than usual, so there’s been a lot of yogurt and Paleo granola being consumed around here.
Symptoms – Tons of Braxton Hicks contractions. Some of them have been different than the last pregnancy, also. They seem to hurt a bit more, which has been slightly scary at times.
Maternity Clothes – I’m done purchasing maternity clothes if I can help it. There’s just not enough time to wear them without feeling I’ve wasted my money. I am starting to think about postpartum/nursing attire, though.
Worst Part of Pregnancy This Week – The afternoon after the toy store, I reclined in a chair and really worried about the scary contractions I was having. I prayed the entire time – luckily they all passed with no issue.
Best Part of Pregnancy This Week – Going to see the progress on the new house and realizing that we will most likely move in before the baby arrives!
