Lakeon's Pregnancy Journal: Week 32

Doctor Appointments:  Feb.13-- We got to see baby Brantley on the 4D ultrasound and he's adorable! He even made us have a good laugh when he stabbed his forehead with his big toe!

Food cravings:  ChikFilA cookies and cream milkshake.

Symptoms: The past couple weeks I've had pains off and on in my cervix. Once I think I even had a real contraction. Contractions are new to me since I got to 39weeks 4days with my daughter and never had any contractions with her. Maybe it was a painful braxton hicks contraction? My tummy has been feeling very very heavy lately and I've had some swelling in my hands, legs and feet.

Weight gain: I've gained 28 pounds.

Measurements: (before pregnancy while standing up, it was 32 inches)
(while lying down)Below the navel- 43 inches.
(while lying down)Above the navel- 39 inches.

Sleep: Now I'm up most of the night peeing. I get heartburn every night and rely on my 2 tums before bed. I still sleep pretty great, though!

What I've been up to the past 2 weeks: Trying to put my feet up off and on throughout the day to keep the swelling down. I had to break down and finally buy some tank tops since my belly tries to peak out of the bottom of my t-shirts. My husband was able to be home this week and he's been helping me out with housework and Chloe, which is a huge relief to me! I'm trying to prepare everything for Chloe's 4th Birthday next month. Finally have my hospital list ready and started packing my hospital bags. It's a little early for that, I know, but I'm just too excited!
