32 Weeks

I finally got around to updating my chalk board last night.  So here are the 32 week stats:

How far along? 32 weeks.
Baby size? 16.5 inches long and weighs about 4.5 pounds
What's going on with the baby? Baby boy is still moving around quite a bit.  Although his movements are much more noticeable from the outside now.  I'm pretty sure he's already head down (which is great!).  He's going to be gaining about a half a pound a week from now until birth.  
Total weight gain/loss: I'm not exactly sure where I am at this point.  Probably around 22-24 pounds total.  We have our next appointment on Valentine's day :)
Maternity clothes? Yep, 98% maternity clothes now.  Other than the few large size t-shirts of John's that still fit on the weekend.  As for jeans and work clothes though, its all maternity.
Stretch marks? None yet. I'm use Palmer's Cocoa butter massage cream for stretch marks after showers.
Sleep: I wake up a lot during the night (every time I turn over).  I'm having to go to the bathroom more often.  And I wake up with pain in my right hip most nights.
Best moment this week: Getting so much of the nursery done!
Awkward moment this week: Having someone at work respond with "Whoa March?!" after asking when I was due.  I can't figure out if she thought I was not big enough to be due so soon, or thought I was so big, that there's no way I'd make it to March...
Miss anything? Sleeping on my stomach, Diet Dr. Pepper, and sushi from Mikuni
Movement: He is super active now.  I feel movement pretty much through out the day.  The movements are getting stronger, and we can see little body parts as he shifts positions, he makes my whole belly shift!
Food cravings: Apple juice has been the only out of the ordinary thing.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope, not anymore
Have you started to show yet? Definitely! 
Gender prediction: Boy!
Labor signs: Nope. 
Belly button in or out? I'm not sure it qualifies as either.  It's pretty much flush with the rest of my belly.  It changes slightly depending on where those little baby body parts are
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy. Definitely getting in to the nesting phase
Looking forward to: Getting the "construction" portion of the nursery done and starting to organize.  Also looking forward to my baby showers coming up!
