32 Weeks!

How far along? 32 weeks!
Weight gain/loss? Ok...I'm not going to lie. As of today's appointment I'm up 30 pounds. :::sheds a tear::: I'm still in the recommended 25-35 pound range but what are the chances I only gain 5 pounds in the next 8 weeks?
Maternity Clothes? Yes. I love my t-shirts from Target.
Sleep?'s OK.
Best Moment This Week: Her coming home outfits (yes, that is plural. I couldn't decide)came in the mail along with her "My first Fourth" outfit and bib.
Movement? These days it feels like she streches out an arm or leg and then as she pushes, she runs it down my side. It hurts but she is just reminding me she is doing well in there.
Food cravings: Chocolate and Diet Coke.
Belly button? Flat. Mike thinks it will pop out. I'm not sure.
What I miss: My husband. He's only been home a total of about 10 days in the last 8 weeks.
What I am looking forward to? I have a surprise I'll post in a few weeks. Only a few people know what it is and I'm not telling. :)
Wisdom of the week: None. Have any for me?
Milestones: I now see the doctor twice a month and am 8 weeks away from my due date.

This week Courtney weighs as much as a large jicama at almost 3.75 pounds. She is also about 16 inches long.

Time is seriously flying by! Have you began discussing the birth plan? Have you decided on a "setting" you'd like to have in the delivery room? I love the fact that you're taking "several" outfits to choose from. Wise decision... =)

We aren't really doing a birth plan per se. I know I want an epidural and I'd like to avoid the dreaded episiotomy but I'll do whatever the doctor recommends for a safe delivery for both Courtney and I. In the delivery room I plan for it to be just Mike and I. We want to have the first time seeing our daughter just be the two of us and then we will share her with the rest of the family. Other then that, we really don't have a plan since I've heard countless times that the "plan" usually goes out the window.

and thanks for reading Christina! :)

awww... I def agree with doing whatever the doctor suggests for a safe delivery. Very intimate setting & that's how it should be.

You're welcome... I'm just now really getting the hang of it on here. I put my blog back to public after it being on private for more than 6 months.

I can't believe how time is flying. I can't wait to get to Washington! That's what I'm looking forward to :)
