32 Weeks (and 3 days) !

Once again can I just say that I can't believe that we've made it this far! The weeks seem to be just flying by now. At the beginning of the summer I was hovering around the 21st week of pregnancy and everything seemed just so far away. I kept telling myself "just get through the summer", "just get through the summer".

Thank goodness the end of summer is just around the corner. Graham starts 3rd grade next week so that marks the end of summer for us even though it really isn't technically Fall until September 23rd. I wondered all Summer long if Graham would be starting the new school year with a new little brother. I'm guessing not. :) I can't wait to see what changes our little family of four will look like this school year as it turns into a family of five!

My sweet Graham took this picture of me this morning before church. He kept scooting back and I asked him what he was doing and he said that he wanted to make sure to get his brother in the picture too! :) (notice the little blue frame on the mantle? That's one of our sonogram pictures of him). Graham melts my heart!!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 32 weeks and 3 days!

Size of Baby: I hate to even guess right now. A week ago on Monday he was already 4 pounds 5 ounces. I have nooo idea how much more he will have grown in a week. I go back to the specialist for another growth scan on Monday August 22nd so I'll find out then! (I hate to go by what the Internet says because it never seems right for him...)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I decided to be a crazy person and weigh myself this morning in the Church bathroom (weird that they have a scale in the ladies room, I know). It said the same thing that the specialist office said a week ago so I'm guessing that's good!

Maternity Clothes: Remember last week when I was all excited about the new maternity tops that I had found at Kohls? I had tried on 1 of the 3 tops I bought as they were all the same size, same style, brand etc. just different colors. The one I tried on in the dressing room was great so I bought all 3 and when I tried to wear the other two this past week they were both way too small!! What the heck!! Now I have to go and exchange them. So frustrating!!

Gender: Still our little boy in there!

Movement: He's moving around pretty good this week. One night as I was falling asleep he decided to have some sort of crazy dance party in there and was moving soo much that I actually started to get worried. I had read before in my "What To Expect When You're Expecting" book that frantic movement can be a sign of fetal distress. Of course my crazy brain jumped immediately to that conclusion. I turned myself over to my left side, chugged a giant glass of water and he seemed to settle down a lot. How is it possible for children to already scare the heck out of their parents when they are not even born yet??

Sleep: Still sleeping pretty good with the exception of the nightly potty trips! :)

What I Miss: Absolutely nothing!

Cravings: Nothing really this week. (maybe that's why the scale managed to stay the same number. haha.)

Symptoms: Just some irritating Braxton-Hicks contractions and heartburn.

Best Moment This Week: Just making it one more week!
