Total Weight Gain: 29.7 lbs!!!
This week, Baby is: 1.9 kg or 4.2 lbs (and expected to double from her on out which will put him right in line with Lil Mister!)
How far along? 32 weeks, 5 days
Due date: 15 Dec 2012 (has not varied a single bit!)
Total weight gain/loss week: Okay I know it is quite a jump and not completely accurate but it has been 6 weeks since my last appointment and I was guestimating!! So in 6 weeks I gained 12.1 lbs!! Woo-hoo!!
Maternity clothes? A firm nope!!
Sleep: Absolutely terrible! We’ve had two weddings in two weeks which involved hours of incredible dancing! Add that to my normal workouts and my body has decided it hates me!
Best moment this week: Getting to hear LJ’s heartbeat for the first time…it is so SO strong!
Food cravings: Salty salty salty!! OMW…you know about sunflower seeds back in America! Especially the Davids brand! I WANT!! We don’t get them here…
Movement: He has some slow days but mostly he is active at least a solid 15 minutes every hours!
Symptoms: Extreme pelvic pressure! Lil Mister always sat far in my back. LJ normally does too but he has been laying forward lately to the point where I feel like I need to support my belly or bend over.
Labor Signs: Nope!
Stretch Marks: nope and we’re working hard to keep it that way!
Swelling? In my feet a lot and a little in the face!!
Belly Button in or out? its definitely almost out.
What I miss: sleep guess I’m preparing!
Feeling toward Pregnancy: Truly ready for it to be over. Just a few weeks ago I felt like it had flown by but now the stress on top of our home life is just too much! LJ just needs to make an appearance and remind us what it is all about!
What I am looking forward to: Watching the friendship grow between brothers over the years!!
Milestones: LJ has turned!!
News: I had a doctors appointment on Monday! I was incredibly excited! I finally got to have an ultrasound as Dr got a new machine! I could hear LJ’s heart and all! He is definitely a boy! I was relieved to know FOR SURE!! Blood results have all come back normal so for now we wait to hear what the gynae will say in two weeks. But my weight is up to a good point for birth and my size and there are no other complications so natural birth here we come!

Oh and in my true fashion I have made a list for the hospital bag as well! Maybe this will get me in motion a little bit. However, despite having been through this before I feel like I’m not packing everything I will need! I’ve revised it into the separate bags I will pack. (My hospital is an hour from our home!)
