32 Weeks

Here's my lovely 32 week selfie.
(I feel huge.)
I actually got ready for the day yesterday (primer! foundation! eyeshadow! a braid!) and thought I needed to document.

Today I had my 32 week appointment, and everything is still looking good.
Weighed in at 158, baby's heartbeat sounded great, no troubling symptoms to speak of.
My OB said, it's basically just a waiting and growing game now.

We are under 8 weeks to go, which is crazy and exciting.
I feel pretty huge, and am still having trouble sleeping some nights due to hip, rib and back pain (and just insomnia in general - I can be so tired yet still not fall asleep).
But, I've said it before, I've had a fairly easy pregnancy, so I'm grateful.

This week in our birth class we talked about induction, other interventions during childbirth, and pain management options. It was pretty informative. Next week is our birthing center tour, which I'm excited about :) I'm excited to give birth at KMC, because they really seem to be what I wanted out of a hospital (skin to skin contact immediately, really focus on baby/parent bonding, etc), so I'm happy about that.

(PS, my wedding ring is officially off. My finger feels naked.)

Congrats on the baby! That last few weeks drag and then all of a sudden the baby is here.

You lasted longer than me with the wedding ring.
