32 weeks

How far along? 32 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 26 lbs

Maternity clothes? It's getting cold here! Too cold for leggings, so I've got one pair of jeans,a pair of pajama pants and one pair of black sweatpants to last me through til delivery. 

Stretch marks? Not yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if I don't end up with some around my belly button. I feel like we are at maximum capacity in there.

Sleep: Better the last week. My cold is finally gone. 

Best moment this week: Any time I can sit down and kick my shoes off. Seeing NZ and Sal assemble her furniture and rearrange furniture put a smile on my face as well.

Miss Anything? No.

Movement: Yes. Lots of rolling. I think she went from head down to oblique today. I think I now have feet coming out my sides instead of into my ribs. I have an ultrasound Saturday so I'm curious to see if my protruding body part prediction is correct.

Food cravings: ice and hash browns. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing 

Gender: Girl.

Labor Signs: unfortunately yes. On Tuesday night I had cramping and contractions for about an hour. I drank water and went to bed hoping it wasn't preterm labor, and was thankful to wake up in the morning and the pains were gone. I still have the occasional Braxton hicks that don't hurt. 

Symptoms: Back & groin pain

Belly Button in or out? Flat

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody?: Happy and anxious. My contractions and the realization that I am two hours from my hospital got my head spinning...thankfully I feel better today, but I'm still a bit anxious.

Looking forward to: seeing my Doc on Saturday and hoping for good growth report.


  1. I think I caught your cold! Well, not yours, but someone else's. My Dr even put me on antibiotics and told me to start taking meds so I can get this kicked before delivery date in a couple of weeks.

    I'm glad it was just a labor scare...little girl needs to hang out for a while! Here's a question though? What happens if you go into labor before induction? Do you try to make there and pray you do? Just curious!

    1. Danae, if I do go into active labor before induction, we will be at the mercy of a local Chinese hospital. I have been to the maternity hospital in town, once--when newly pregnant, and I would love to never go back, but if we must, we know it is there, and we would just have to ask Nick's assistant to be at my bedside to translate. I shudder just thinking about it.

    2. Baby Girl, Please stay put til at least 1/6. Thank you, Love Auntie

  2. It is so much harder to remember to drink water as the weather gets colder!
