32 weeks pregnant

                            [celebrating a college roommate's baby-to-be last weekend]
Weight gain: 16 lbs 

Maternity clothes? Yes! Hello dresses! Thanks to some warm weather, I'm sporting my pasty white legs under some maternity dresses which are so incredibly comfortable. 

Stretch marks? Couldn't tell you. Can't see south of my belly button.

Sleep: Better. Ever since we moved back into our house, and our amazingly comfortable bed, I've been sleeping pretty well. I've had a few difficult nights here and there, but overall, doing alright.

Best moment this week: Spending afternoons in our backyard, watching the kids play (and eat dirt) while enjoying some sunshine. 

Miss anything?: Being able to breathe. I am always short of breath these days. 

Movement: Yes....he's at the point where movement has gone from cute little kicks to "oh my God you've got to stop kicking my bladder before I pee my pants!". 

Food cravings: chocolate milk. I've had seven in a week and am already craving another make it eight by night's end. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of microwaved popcorn. Sal requests popcorn daily, and Nick likes it at night, so I feel like it's some cruel joke the universe is playing on me. 

Gender: Boy

Happy or Moody? Moody. I've got quite a lot of tears and they appear randomly. I have a melt down at least once a week out of complete exhaustion. 

Looking forward to: Getting one week closer to my due date! 


  1. I enjoy your blog (started reading when you were in China) but never comment. After reading your post today, I felt compelled to warn you not to eat microwave popcorn and especially don't let your beautiful children eat it. It's #1 on list of cancer causing foods!
