32 Weeks

How Far Along: 32 weeks
Size of baby:   Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and weighs 3 pounds
Gender: IT'S A BOY!! We finally agreed on a name... and that we want to keep it a secret! Okay, we've told a few people but are trying to keep it a surprise for the most part!

Maternity Clothes: I am starting to run out of clothes that fit.  Some of my maternity shirts are getting too short because my belly is sticking out so dang far!!
Movement: Ugh, I feel like he's already running out of room! It is so crazy to watch my belly move! He's really active in the evenings and last night he had a limb jammed up in my rib cage.
Sleep: Still sleeping pretty well. It's getting a little difficult to get comfortable but usually an extra body pillow helps.
Weight Gain: 23 pounds
Symptoms: My ankles (especially the right) have been even more swollen this week.  When I went in for my OB checkup I asked the doctor to look at them.  I'm super paranoid now and check them at least 10 times a day.  She looked at them and decided that with my history it would be a good idea to have a doppler sonogram done on my right leg just to rule out the possibility of another blood clot. Back the the hospital I went.  Thankfully everything came back clear and I was able to go home! My blood pressure is also up so my doctor wants me to really try to cut out stress.  I may be going to part-time work.  Even though I would love to be home with Avery more it is a big decision for us and we have a lot of factors to consider.  I've been praying God will help me see the best solution. 

Cravings: Sweets (ice cream!)
Best moment this week:We are finally making progress with the nursery and I'm hoping to have pictures posted in the next two weeks.  Matt is almost done painting and I'm going to finish up the crib bedding as soon as I'm done here.  I'm so excited that it is finally coming together!! I can't wait to have that checked off my LONG to-do list!!

Here is one more comparison picture... 32 weeks with Avery!  I can't believe we were already done with her nursery at this point.
