Week 32

32 W 6 D
AJ tore up the carpet, padding, nail strips, and staples in the hallway in preparation for the wood flooring since the flooring company called to tell us the material was in.  There was a lot of dirt on the plywood subfloor - it's amazing to see how much and where dirt collects.  After AJ pulled up everything, I applied a coat of odorless Kilz that is suppose to block any odors (ya know, like pet urine...).  Next up - the living room.

This week also concluded the child birthing classes where we had a pediatrician and a car seat specialist come.  Both of the speakers were very informative - though it means I needed to add another thing on the list.  We need to have a prenatal appointment with a pediatrician, and I signed up for an infant and child CPR class.  In addition, the class went over postpartum recovery and briefly touched on breastfeeding, though I have another full class on Tuesday that will cover breastfeeding.
How far along?: 32 weeks 6 days
How big is baby?: According to What to Expect When You’re Expecting: Started the week as the size of a Head of Lettuce and about to be a Honeydew. The fruit doesn't change as often as it did early on. Going into week 32, Aidan is approximately 19 inches long and weighs 4.5 lbs.

Weight gain?: About 1lb. Total weight gain is 25 lbs.

Stretch marks?: Not yet.

Maternity clothes?: Definitely.

Sleep?: Still sleeping great, but if I sleep through the entire night, my shoulder and hip ache. I can't sleep on my stomach any more :( and I'm not suppose to sleep on my back.  At least I get a good night's rest, can't complain about that!

Best moment this week?: Some of the girls from work threw me a shower, and it was tons of fun.  I'm not normally one for games at showers, but they made them lots of fun that at the end of the night I had to stop laughing because I hurt every time I did.  In addition, my coworkers are extremely giving and generous.

Worst moment this week?: My two miniature daschunds decided to fight over a stupid bone, and one of them ended up with a bite on her butt and leg.  I'm not sure if it was as bad as she made it out to be - she's a drama queen and can over exaggerate and act like her feelings are really hurt if you have to scold her.  Still though, we had to baby her for a day or two.

Food cravings?: None that stick out.

Symptoms?:Little bit of lower back pain a few days a week.  Depends on how I sleep.

Exercise?: I walked 3 miles, played tennis for 45 minutes, and worked out my arms twice and legs once. 

Movement?: Aidan moves a lot!  He is the most active around 9 to 9:30 PM when I am going to sleep.  It's awesome to feel him move around so much and watch my stomach move with him.  The feeling is incredible.

Belly button?: Pretty much an outie!

What I miss?: Being able to sleep on my stomach or back.

Labor signs?: Not yet. Hope to keep it that for a while!

Purchases: Due to my coworker's generosity, I was able to go out and buy the stroller I wanted - I went with the City Mini Baby Jogger in Orange and Grey.  I bought it online, so I can't wait to get it in and play around with it.  In addition, I bought some cloth diapering stuff, cloth wipes, and a portable clothes line so I can line dry cloth diapers and covers.

What I'm looking forward to?: I'm looking forward to the wood floors being done!  I am so excited about the new floors and can't wait to see the change.  Almost there!
