How far along? 32 Weeks
Baby is the size of a: Cantaloupe
Total weight gain: 9lbs
Baby Development: As of now, Daphne Grace is pretty much focused on getting cute and fat! Her senses are being fine-tuned and her lungs are working on getting strong enough to breath on the outside! I’m assuming/hoping she’s growing lots of hair because mama has heartburn! If all goes according to plan, she should be migrating lower in my belly to get ready for her birth.
Movement Daphne Grace is trying to escape out of my belly button, I swear. She is now constantly moving, I have no idea when she sleeps. I also now know the feeling other moms talk about when baby is in their ribs because, WOW, I feel her between my ribs. She is also sitting pretty on my lungs, I run out of breath just talking. Hoping she drops just a tad so I can breathe.
Food cravings: Drinks with bubbles. I’ve been drinking La Croix like it’s my job, but nothing quite quenches the bubble craving like a large Ocean Water from Sonic.
Miss Anything? seeing my feet.
Symptoms: Heartburn is still alive and well in my belly. I’ve lessened my coffee intake and am eating WAY less salt. That has seemed to help the heartburn big time. I’m also having really weird nightmares! Like terrifying nightmares of my babies getting hurt and its AWFUL!! I’m ready for that to go away. I’m also having Braxton-Hicks way more frequently. I don’t remember having them with Winifred, so this is a really new feeling.
Wedding rings on or off? Rocking the silicone ring, proudly.
Mood? Exhausted. I can’t get enough sleep.
Winifred Update: We not have two teeth! WHOOOO HOOOOO! Winnie J is rocking her milestones and development without much help from us. She is crawling all over the entire house and exploring anything she can. She’s obsessed with books, in particular, a farm animal book! She can Moo, quack, whooo whooo, and bark like a dog! Every time the dogs bark outside, she barks back! She has also become quite the showman. If she does something to make us laugh, she’ll do it over and over looking for our reaction. She has really started noticing music and rhythms. She’ll dance or wave her hands to any music she hears! Winnie J is quite the organizer these days. She’ll sort things by color, or want to choose two toys that are similar to take with her. If she is done with a particular part of a meal, she will put that food in the cup holder so it isn’t in her way. She been Miss Independent this week too, playing by herself. She’ll crawl into her room and shut the door! I’ll stand out there and just hear here playing with her books or yelling with her stuffed animals. It makes my heart so happy to have her asserting her independence! She got a big girl car seat and helped Dad work on her big girl room! We have a little assistant on our hands.
