8 Months Pregnant!
Compare with 23 weeks in same church outfit by clicking HERE!
How far along? 32 weeks
Total weight gain: 19 lbs!
Stretch marks? Not yet...knock on wood!
Sleep: Requires lots of pillows around me and a potty break around 3 or 4 AM.
Best moment this month: Feeling so very loved. Matt has unpacked countless boxes so that I don't have to lift heavy things or bend over. My family has been taking care of me and is always helping me out. My ward has been so wonderful and I just feel like the luckiest girl alive :)
Movement: Still constant! She is our crazy, active, bouncy babe. Recently she moves her elbow or knee in a circle around my bellybutton. It's hilarious to see & feel!
Food cravings: Lemonade, oranges, apples/apple cider, baked goods.
Labor Signs: None.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: Moving quickly. Haha!
What I am looking forward to: Finishing the nursery :)
Monthly Wisdom: A lady told me that as a pregnant woman, it is my right to go to the front of the line at the post office and bank. I didn't know this! I still couldn't bring myself to walk to the front when I was at the post office the other day...I just waited forever like normal. Ha!
Milestones: Ada responds to her Daddy's voice and dances to music!
Baby's now the size of a honeydew!
Things are heating up inside as well: Baby may grow up to a full inch this week alone, and her brain is developing like crazy. Pretty soon, she'll be able to coordinate breathing with sucking and swallowing. Also, her bones are hardening, and she's started to keep her eyes open when she's awake.
