32 weeks...

So we've hit the 8 month mark and now the final countdown has begun - 8 weeks or less. I'm actually surprisingly calm most of the time, but I did tell J that I will be starting my list making this week so we can figure out what we still need to do.

Due Date: May 27, 2012

How Big is Baby: Depending on the source, either a jicama or a squash. I feel like those 2 things are really not that similar in size, so I'm confused, but whatever. Apparently he weights about 3.8 pounds and is 16 inches long.

Symptoms: I have noticed more heartburn this week, but that's pretty much it.

Cravings: Not really anything. I have been eating grilled cheese and pickle sandwiches this week that taste pretty darn fantastic though.

Sleep: Ehhh, I don't want to jinx myself, but it may have actually gotten better recently. I'm still pretty comfortable so I fall asleep pretty easily and I can turn over to each side without too much of a struggle yet. It's mainly just the fact that I seem to wake up at 6am no matter what day it is, so I'm taking naps on Saturdays and Sundays to make up for the super early wake up.

I Can't Live Without: my trusty Sigg Water bottle (my constant companion) and super long v-neck t-shirts from Target -- I have them in every color and honestly I wear one every single day. They work for the gym, hanging out around the house and I can dress them up a bit with jewelry if we go out to dinner. 

I Miss: Now that the weather is nice, I'm really missing being able to go for a long run outside. I see all these people running through our neighborhood and I get super jealous. I just want to run and get really sweaty and feel great afterwards.

I am Looking Forward to: Trying to enjoy these last 2 months of pregnancy and then meeting this baby!

Milestones:  We've had both our baby showers now, so we have more baby stuff than we know what to do with. I did re-organize his closet this weekend and nursery progress continues

Exercise: Still trucking along at the gym 4-5 times a week and running about 3-4 miles a week. I only run about 1 mile at a time (broken up into run/walk intervals) and it's super slow...almost like a wog (walk/jog) pace.  But I want to keep going as long as I can so I can get back to running after he's born. Also doing light weights for my upper body and still doing my yoga DVD.

Diet: No difference - I'm still just eating my normal diet. Haven't noticed any changes in hunger.

Movement: It's getting sort of weird cause I guess he's running out of space. Not really kicking anymore, now it's just rolling and nudges, especially in my ribs. Oh and he gets the hiccups several times a day, which is cool and weird at the same time!

Labor Signs- No thank you!

Gender: It's a boy!

 This picture is actually from 31 weeks (taken the day of my family baby shower) last week, but we haven't downloaded my pics from this week yet. I look basically exactly like this still ha!
