How far along? 32 weeks
Size of baby?31 weeks: coconut
32 weeks: jicama
Total weight gain? I'm still at a total of three pounds, but Baby Cookie more than likely weighs more than that now. I'm actually finding out this morning at my ultrasound!
Gender? GIRL! You can read about it here!
Maternity clothes? Full time. I do still have baggy t-shirts and a huge pair of gym shorts that I wear, but otherwise, it's all maternity clothes.
Sleep? I slept pretty well while Dan was out of town because I was able to sprawl out over the whole king size bed! Woo! I actually slept through the night for the first time in MONTHS... and when I say through the night, I mean five hours without waking... because let's face it - that's a LONG time these days.
Work outs? I try to walk, but it's pretty tough to go for very long... or very fast. I'm constantly telling Dan to slow down. I have always been a faster walker than him, so this is completely new. And you should have seen me on our trip to Colorado... that altitude KILLED me. It's crazy to think I lived there for four years just fine...
Cravings? Mexican / spicy foods! I have had my fair share of burritos lately, and I found an actual authentic hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint about 15 minutes from my house... and it's far better than Chipotle, Qdoba, Hot Head, etc. I'll be visiting them frequently, I'm sure.
Aversions? Still tomatoes... except I'm eating more salsa than I'd like (see above...), which causes heartburn. But I want that spicy food so bad that I just kind of suck it up. I refuse to take any meds for heartburn because I am already on so many for allergies and asthma... I just can't bear to take any more.
Best moment of this week? We went to Colorado Springs to watch a couple friends get married at the USAFA chapel, and that was a blast! I loved eating at all of my old favorite restaurants and strolling through Garden of the Gods - and we even bought Baby Cookie her very first flight suit and took a picture in front of her future school! ;-)
Worst moment of this week? I had some mystery pains last week right before Dan was set to leave town... we thought I could have been going into premature labor, so we went in to get me checked out. That was no fun, but at least we now know that Baby Cookie is safe and sound for a while longer in there!
Looking forward to? Some Ohio friends are having a small baby shower / get together for us this weekend. It'll be fun to see all of our friends at the same time!
