and for the 32 week bump update…
i can't believe that i have less than 60 days left until my due date.

bump at 32 weeks
weight | at my last doctor's appt, i was up about 21.6 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. and i'm gaining about a half pound to a pound per week. people still say things to me like "you're all baby" or "you look like you're hiding a basketball". so i am feeling pretty good about that.

size of baby | about the size of a squash 
…16.7 inches and 3.8 pounds.

gender | a lil man.

movement | i'm an obsessive kick counter and always worry if i don't feel enough movement from him. i guess i just feel like we've come so far…to lose him now…i just can't even fathom it. so i am always on alert for any signs that he is in distress.

fun fact | baby sunshine is getting ready for his decent and probably head down now.

sleep | sleep. what's that?
i wake up at least every two hours from the pain radiating under my right rib cage. it's getting really tough to find a comfortable way to lay down.

exercise | honestly, i've been really bad about exercising. it's cold and dreary outside. the last thing i want to do is walk so i haven't been. plus, at this point…it is more of a waddle than a walk.

symptoms | my acid reflux is still in full effect. my back is still a wreck and the newest fun factor is the pain in my rib cage. ouch. baby boy is under there kicking and pushing on my bone structure. it's hard to breath and that area fluctuates between searing pain, burning, dull pain and numbness. but no matter how bad it gets, i'm still so grateful to carry him into this world. 

cravings/aversions | chicken tacos and chocolate and peanut butter bars.
and i'm anti-chipotle. that's my main aversion.

nursery | his nursery is done. i'm so happy with how it turned out even though it is a tiny bedroom. i'll be posting a reveal very soon. 

best part of the week | taking my nightly bath and reading in the tub. it is the place where i feel the least discomfort and most peace. i love watching my belly roll with his movements while i relax.

excited for | this baby boy to arrive safely so i can love and cuddle him. it will also be nice to have a flat stomach again and give him some space to grow. if i'm this uncomfortable, he must be pretty crammed too. i have no idea how he is going to double in weight and size in the next 8 weeks.

Pickle juice works wonders for reflux! I have bad reflux even when I'm not pregnant and it's gotten unbearable during both my pregnancies. In addition to taking prilosec twice a day, a couple sips of pickle juice did wonders!

Also, I had the right side rib pain with my twins and figured it was just all the limbs being jammed under my rib cage. Turns out it was my gallbladder and I had it removed 10 weeks postpartum

You certainly are all baby! Glad to hear he's growing and doing well. I remember the lack of sleep around this period. Not fun. Do what you can and I hope the pain subsides as he begins to drop.

And congratulations on hitting 32 weeks!!
