Week: 32. 8 more weeks to go! Also, only 39 more work days before my due date. Yes, I’m counting those too!
Baby Gender: Boy!
Nicknames for baby boy: Nougat, Colgate
Mama is feeling: Pretty good. It’s been unusually hot for San Diego for the past two weeks, so I’ve been more uncomfortable than in weeks past. I’ve always hated being hot, even pre-pregnancy. Luckily, we have a small AC unit in the bedroom that is pointed on me at all times, so I am able to sleep.
Cravings: Fruit – my mother-in-law and I went to the Farmer’s Market this weekend and stocked up on grapes, peaches, mango, cherries – and it’s already mostly gone. Still have a sweet-tooth, but have noticed that my cravings for sweets are much more directly related to my emotions lately. Example: I’ve been feeling tired and sad today, and there are donuts in the break room at work – I want one terribly, even though on Saturday I mentioned to Nathan how donuts never sound good anymore.
Movement: LOTS! Nougat is getting bigger, and his movement is bigger.
Joys: Birthing class. Started last week, and I love it. I think going makes everything feel so real. Another joy is how confident I am feeling regarding labor. I’m actually looking forward to it.
Not-so-joyful: The heat, which not only causes me to be overheated, but also overemotional even more than usual.
