Dear Baby: 32 Weeks

Dear Elijah,

This weeks pictures come to you straight from your nursery!  Do you like what you see so far?  I sure hope so, cause I love it!  I'll take more pictures of the room soon, I promise.

I can't believe we're 32 weeks this week!  This pregnancy is flying by and soon, you'll be in my arms!  Oh how I can't wait for that day.  I only have 5 more weeks of work until maternity leave starts which is making everything feel so real.  We're ready for you, sweetie!

I decided to do a fun little questionnaire this week to help me organize thoughts.  Here we go:

How big is baby? somewhere around 4 lbs and measuring between 17 and 19 inches long!

Sleep? Not so hot.  I've been experiencing a lot of pregnancy induced insomnia and it's definitely no fun.  I'm waking up somewhere around 3 times a night to either pee or because I'm uncomfortable and then I can't fall back asleep!  Very unlike me.

Symptoms? Frequent urination, fatigue, insomnia, lots of braxton hicks contractions, and feeling generally uncomfortable

Food Cravings? Nothing this week.

Gender? a sweet baby boy!  Elijah James :-)

Belly Button? It's becoming an innie/outie

What I'm looking forward to? Maternity leave in 5 weeks and most of all, meeting my little boy!!!!

We love you so, so much Elijah and we hope the next 8 weeks fly by as fast as the last 32 have!

Your Mama
