32 Week Update: My Bellybutton is My Butthole

32

Baby is the size of: A large jicama (not just a regular-sized one, but a LARGE one)

How far along are you: 32 weeks, 1 day

What’s happening with baby: From Babycenter, “By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You’re gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, your little one will gain a third to half of his or her birth weight during the next seven weeks as he fattens up for survival outside the womb. Your baby now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). The skin on your baby’s body is becoming soft and smooth as he plumps up in preparation for birth.”

Due date: February 3rd

Sleep: Quantity is fine; quality sucks. I’m exhausted all the time now after having a few good weeks of energy.

Best moment this week: Definitely getting the good news from our doctor that my blood sugar numbers are looking good. We also installed the car seat, which took us about 30 minutes as opposed to the 4-6 hours our childbirth instructor had warned us it should take (still no clue why it would ever take that long). Just need to get it inspected now!

Worst moment this week: Honestly, not a lot of bad moments this week!

What are you looking forward to: My shower on Sunday!

Food cravings: Carbs. Cake. Pie. All stuff I can’t eat (natch).

What do you miss: Being able to get comfortable without nonstop wrenching back pain accompanied by a rippling tummy (not that I’m complaining about baby movements!).

Symptoms: Heartburn/reflux, back pain, mood swings, hemorrhoids, belly numbness, belly itching, constant peeing, swollen feet, absolutely and total steroid-level irritability.

Gender: Boy

Belly button: I’m calling it out. It looks like a butthole, which is totally gross.

Ring: Off.
