Baby Barrett 32 Week

Size of the baby: Baby Barrett is now the size of a honeydew approx.. 19 inches long & approx 4.5lbs.

Total Weight Gain/loss: I have gained 19lbs (as of my last doctors appointment, I don't really want to get on the scale at home).  My belly is  growing everyday.  I swear when I wake up the morning it has grown overnight.  The last couple times I have been measuring two weeks big so it appears will be having a fairly good size little peanut =)

Maternity Clothes:  I can still wear a VERY few of my longer shirts, but most of my pants are now maternity or stretchy yoga pants.   I am still totally in LOVE with leggings and sweaters. 

Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby Barrett arrives in May!  Everytime I am out and about I run into someone who has an opinion about what we are having.  

Movement: Definitely have been feeling movement.  Baby B is moving all day long now.  It is such an amazing feeling to feel baby flipping and kicking all day long.  At our last appointment Baby B was already head down and ready to go =).  And I am pretty sure Baby B has started to drop, I feel like I lost my shelf =)

Sleep: Not getting much anymore.  Sleep has become a very precious commodity.  Loving my weekend naps.

What I miss: Not having smells literally have me running for the bathroom.  Not getting heartburn.  

Cravings: Ummm... Nothing really in particular lately. I am still working on trying to get in 100 grams of protein a day and let me tell you, that is is not an easy thing to do.  

Symptoms: Just more and more Braxton Hicks contractions.  It's such a strange feeling to have your whole stomach tighten and contort into weird positions.

Best moment this week: Well I am kinda cheating because it hasn't happened yet but I know the best moment of this week is going to be picking hubs up from the airport on Friday night.  He has been gone since Sunday on a business trip and I miss him like crazy.
