32 weeks and growing and big news!


I had my doc appointment this morning and got some fabulous news!
She is measuring a week and a half ahead. 
Due to that and some other stuff that went down during my delivery with E (I'll spare you the details), my doc suggested inducing at 39 weeks.....um, yes please!!!!
We know my body responds well to the pitocin, so I am ALLLLL about it! 
So unless she decides to come sooner, Miss Leighton Kate will be here March 14th!!! EEEEEEKKKKK!!!
How Far Along? 32 weeks!! Just 7 weeks to go!
Size? a jicama - 17 inches long....plus a week and a half...ha!
Maternity Clothes? nothing new, feeling large and in charge these days!
Weight Gain? 26 pounds - eek!
damn those milkshakes.
Stretch Marks? Lathering and lathering!
Gender? Leighton Kate!
Sleep? so needed....so not getting.
I am so tired by the end of the day so I get in bed at like 8:00....and then I am wide awake. And then once I do fall asleep I have to wake up to potty (typically around 3:30-4) then I am wide awake for like 2 hours, falling asleep just in time for my alarm to go off. 
Last night my heartburn was so bad I had to sleep half the night pretty much sitting up!
 
And on top of all that, my poor sweet E has been sick this week :(


 So I was up with her and her for 3 nights....even less sleep!

Movement? big movements, and you can see my belly move - it's like the alien belly! HA!
Food Cravings? chocolate these days, like good ole candy....mini candy bars in my HR office at work are dangerous...
Anything making you queasy or sick? I have been super nauseous lately, like morning sickness nauseous - but I can't figure out why?!
Labor signs? lots of braxton hicks. LOTS!
Belly button in or out? it's funny looking, it is wide and flat and a little bit poking out - pretty funny!
Wedding rings, on or off? still on!
What I Miss? sleep, oh my sweet sweet sleep!
Symptoms? heartburn and just exhaustion - sick baby, 8 months pregnant, working full time, trying to get E in to MDO for next year (it's craziness!!), taking care of the house, and getting the nursery finished is finally starting to take a toll on this Mama!
Happy or Moody? the past few days, moody....my poor hubby. damn hormones!
Best Moment of the Week? More nursery progress!! We got the trim and doors painted last weekend, it needed re-painting SO badly and it was the chore I was lease looking forward to. With The Hubs help we knocked it out in like an hour and it makes a HUGE difference. I also pulled out the tassel garland I ordered and I love them it sooooo much!!
I also went through ALL of E's old clothes (man that child had a lot of little bitty clothes!!), and it looks like a lot of them are going to work! I think we are good for most of the summer....maybe a few more newborn pieces (and of course bathing suits!!), but then we are good until the Fall I think! :)
I forgot how small they were, look at this onesie!!
  Excusethe messy shirt, we had just gotten done painting! :) I got them all sorted and washed, now I just need to get them hung/folded and put away! 
 
Getting closer and closer!!

I can't believe you're 32 weeks! You look so great!! I was up 29 obs when I had my son and I looked like a whale. You are carrying just beautifully -- I'm jealous, skinny minny!!

That's super exciting!!! A girl I work with was told the same thing, but had the opposite reaction you had. This is her first and she was planning on having more time to prepare for baby. Turns out dr was wrong and she delivered a week after her due date. Whoops!

Hope big sister feels better soon!
