Pregnancy Update ~ 32 weeks!

7 more weeks or 1 month and 18 days or 49 days! Let's just say it is coming up fast. Keeping the kids busy this summer is helping it fly by for me. We got Lucas' dresser on Thursday and Matt put it together last night while I was out for a girls night, so now that I have a place to put his clothes after I wash them. I am still researching what detergent I want to use for the cloth diapers so those will be getting washed soon too!

Also, on the 21st of June Matt went in for his Vasectomy. It went really well and he is doing great now. Since it is not 100% effective for about three months we didn't want to wait till after Lucas was here. When I really think about it, it makes me sad because I know that chapter (having kids) of our life will be over once Lucas is here but I have been given (almost) three wonderful gifts and for that I am truly thankful. Plus, like I have said before and many of you know, pregnancy and my body don't go well together!

How Far Along: 32 weeks

Stretch marks? just the ones from Logan, no new ones.

Movement: Still VERY active and I am savoring every moment of it!

Size of Baby: He measures about 17 inches long (size of a sqaush) and weighs in around 4 pounds. He is in the head down position and getting more and more cramped by the day!

Belly Button in or out? In but flat.

Cravings: COOKIES! I made cookie dough the other day (missed that post check it out here) and it was good but it seems cooked cookie are what I am craving. Kebbler Fudge Shoppe and Chick Fil A's new chocolate chunk are my favorites!

Sleep: Getting rough again but is not to bad since it is summer break and I don't have to get up early. My heartburn and pelvic is what keeps me up.

Sex of Baby: A sweet baby BOY...Lucas Parker!

Best Moment this week: Getting my c section officially scheduled for August 24th at 7:30am...7 more weeks!!

Weight Gain: We will not talk about this! ;)

Symptoms: Back pain, pelvic pain, and awful heartburn. I am taking a Zantac twice a day but having to take 2 Tums about an hour or so before I am due for the Zantac. This little boy better have hair when he comes out! haha

What you are looking forward to: At this point I am just looking forward to meeting our sweet boy!!
