My 32nd week of pregnancy brought with it an increased feeling of being pregnant. I feel bigger, my rings no longer fit, I officially have cankles, and I have been informed by a few different people that I now do the pregnant waddle (at the speed of a grandma). Sweet.
I’m keeping up with walking the dogs, but my 1.7 mile walk this morning actually wore me out. I also have noticed my energy lagging a bit the past few days but maybe that was due to traveling?
Sleep continues to be a challenge – between acid reflux, an aching back, sore hips, and inner thigh pain each time I roll over, I’m amazed I get any sleep at all. Some nights are better than others, but I am SOOO ready for this part of pregnancy to be over. I’m kind of thinking 9 hours of crappy sleep isn’t any better than only 2 hours of good sleep.
Emma continues to kick away, though she goes through periods where she does hardly anything. When I was in Minnesota last weekend, she was hardly kicking around at all. Maybe a growth spurt? I did gain 3 lbs this past week so we’ll go with that (and also water weight from swelling).
Overall pregnancy is still treating me well, but I can see why so many women say they’re ready to be done by the end of it. It just gets old dealing with all this stuff.
Anyway. My workouts last week:
Su: 1.55 mile walk
T: 1.15 mile walk
W: 20 min prenatal Pilates
Th: 1.15 mile walk
F: 1.15 mile walk
Symptoms: See above
Cravings: Frozen yogurt – which I satisfied at the airport on my way to MN!
Weight Gained: 3 lbs this week (26 lbs total)
Rings on or off: Off – even a ring that’s usually too big for me is too snug now. I could barely get it off the other morning! So now I’m completely sans rings. *sigh*
Belly button in or out: Mostly just flat
Stretch marks: None so far
Baby purchases: I went to Carter’s with my mom in the Twin Cities and bought Emma some cute little outfits. I can’t wait to dress her up! I also got a lot of baby stuff from the shower (duh) but I’ll post about all that stuff when I recap the weekend.
Best moment this week: My baby showers in Minnesota!
Looking forward to: Flying to FLORIDA on Sunday! I’m excited for warm weather, sun and spending a whole week with my family.
