32 Weeks

How far along? 32 weeks! And feeling every one of them.

Size of baby? I've made it to the melon stage... baby is the size of a cantaloupe this week. Around 4.5 lbs and 18 inches.. all of which sits right on my sciatic nerve. :)

How I'm changing? 24 lbs gained. Remaining uncomfortable. Back kills me, I can't breathe, Braxton Hicks continue. OK, it's a vent type of week it looks like. Ha.

What I miss? I miss my closet of clothes, I know that sounds ridiculous. Even the maternity stuff I have is starting to cling tight. I stand in my closet in the morning just staring at things on hangers that no longer fit me. It's a little bit depressing. I really want to wear a t-shirt and sweatpants to work at this point. I feel like Miranda Hobbes every morning- I can't believe I have to go pretend to be an attorney now.

What I look forward to? BEING OFF WORK. Still planning to work up to my due date if I can stomach it. The commute and my desk chair kill my back though, so we will see what happens. I brought a pillow and heating pad into work this week, which helps temporarily thank goodness. Hopefully Hubs takes a hint and gets me a prenatal massage soon... eh hem....

Weeks left? 8... go clock go. This girl is so uncomfortable!! Ready to meet this baby already.

32 weeks and feel like I look full term. Seriously, how am I so big already? I actually asked the doctor that today. Ha. She said babies grow at different paces at this point in pregnancy, and mine was just going through a big growth spurt. I'll say.

It's because you were so tiny!! So baby looks bigger... Trust me you aren't big:-) I totally had a pillow for my back at work and arranged my computer tower where I could prop my legs up on it. Countdown is on!!!
