bump - 32 weeks!

Matt and I had the best Baby Shower this past weekend.  We were blown away from the generosity of our friends and family.  This little girl is loved by so many already that it makes me feel beyond grateful.  My girlfriends did such an AWESOME job with all the little details that I can't wait to share pictures!!  Seriously the best group of gals a person can ask for! 

Total Weight Gain:  No idea because my appointment isn't till next week so I will guess +26.  I no longer care/ worry about this.  I am starting to swell!  WTF!  I actually couldn't get my wedding ring on this morning without forcing it so I decided against that.  I don't know if it was from my run/ walk or what, but I was shocked!  

Maternity Clothes:  I actually wore a regular dress to my shower this past weekend.  I wear only maternity to work and a lot of Matt's clothes around the house.  He actually said that I better not stretch them out.  If I had a shoe on me I would have thrown it at him.

Stretch Marks:  Not that I can see!

Sleep:  Not good.  Insomnia might be the worst symptom.

Best Moment of the Week:  Our shower! 

Worst Moment of the Week:  (This section is new mainly because I have rage over this.)  Finding drapery hardware for the nursery has not been fun.  I have literally ordered my 5th hardware set this morning.  I am trying it out from Restoration Hardware Baby.  I need the drapes in the nursery to actually function because I plan on opening and closing them daily.  The rods have all sucked because the rings won't go over the rod.  Infuriating.  We just hung them up over the weekend and I made Matt dig out the box/ packaging from the trash can this morning because I am returning them.  Matt called me a monster.  Damn you Pottery Barn! 

Miss Anything:  Functioning like a normal person.  I feel so much heavier now.  I feel so much more pressure.  It forces me to be lazy.  When we go out to eat I look at the chair I might sit in and usually ask for a booth.  This is very unlike me.  I am the kind of person who runs up the stairs two at a time.  Even whipping off Stella's paws is challenging.  I am not trying to complain, but it has been an adjustment.

Movement:  All the time!  Usually around 9ish in the morning and at night. 

Food Cravings:  Nope.  I can't seem to drink enough water. 

Anything Make you Queasy or Sick:  Same old same old.  Eggs and Mexican.

Symptoms:  Swelling, insomnia, leg cramps, back pain, belly button out. :(

Exercise:  3 runs at 2.4 miles.  2 of those I had to take walking breaks.  A walk of 2.4 miles.  This running thing will end soon.  Starting to get painful.

Happy or Moody:  A little of both?  I am starting to feel anxious about getting everything ready.  Like this past week I have been focused on getting stuff to nurse with.  Buying bras that you don't know will fit you or not seems stupid but I don't want to be stuck at home without any.  The sales lady told me you go up one cup size during pregnancy.....not this girl!  I bet I will be up by 3 when it is all said and done.  I am not a boob person so I am more than ready to have my old tatas back. 

Looking Forward to:  July 4th weekend in HHI with Matt's family.  I might be a whale on the beach, but relaxing sounds amazing!
