32 weeks

 
baby is the size of: a jicama!
how far along are you: 32 weeks, 3 days
due date/days left: jan 10/53 days
sleep:  still not great - up anytime between 3-5 to pee, chug water, eat tums, and take off my pants.    
best moment this week: the weekend.  we took it pretty easy.  it was nice, for a change 
what are you looking forward to: our childbirth class on saturday (technically yesterday) 
what do you miss:  sleep. 
symptoms: when people ask me how i'm feeling, my standard answer now is, "pregnant."  nobody wants to hear that my back and hips hurt constantly, that my knees hurt, that i feel like my stomach is going to split open, that i can't breathe, that i am gtting heartburn, and that i generally just feel huge and sluggish.  they don't care.  so i just say i feel pregnant.  cuz i do.
weight gain: about 23 pounds.  
movement:  he's gonna be a dancer, i'm sure of it.
gender: baby boy!! 
belly button: shockingly, still in!
rings: on, but i find myself removing them pretty frequently. 

on another note, in an email chain with my sister and mom, i thought it would have been cool if i'd cooked a meal each week using the fruit/veggie that is the size of the baby.  way too late this time around, but maybe with the next baby i'll do it.  i'll write a blog about it.  and then it'll get popular and someone can write a movie about me.  i wonder who would play me in a movie.....?

and just for fun, here's another picture.  padfoot wanted in on the action...

You look fabulous!! And Padfoot is so cute!! Love the idea of cooking with the fruit/vegetable that's the size of the baby each week! :) I laughed at the taking your pants off...I've been waking up so sweaty and uncomfortable some nights, I end up naked by morning. Lol.
Have a wonderful week and a Happy Thanksgiving!

I definitely told people that I felt "pregnant" for quite awhile for the same reasons you're doing it...

Now I just tell people I'm "done" :) I want this baby out!
