32 Weeks!

32 weeks

8 months... that is what 32 weeks equals. OMG. This kid is going to be here before I know it! Maybe I should get the nursery in order or wash at least some of its clothes? I'm getting sooo excited and wonder more and more about who this kid is everyday. I can't wait to meet him or her! 

I've continued to feel pretty great, which I'm endlessly thankful for. The one major complaint I have is carpal tunnel. I've had it throughout my pregnancy, but my hands would just go numb once or twice a night and it wouldn't be very severe. In the past week its gotten to the point where I wake up numerous times and I have to work pretty hard to get feeling back in my hands. And I find that during the day my hands are going numb in certain positions. In the morning I have a hard time gripping things very tightly, but that seems to get better throughout the day. Really though, its not the end of the world and I make do just fine.

What else? I'm really looking forward to my baby shower! Its in a little less than a month and so is our maternity photo session! We are meeting with the midwives twice a month now - I go again on Wednesday. I'm looking forward to hearing if babe is still head down. I think he is though. He is a funny little thing, always movin' and shakin'. He prefers to be on the right side of my belly almost always and he continues to GROW! Its kind of insane the rate at which these things gain weight. The babe is now approximately 3.75lbs and 16.7 inches long! Crazy. 

So that's us... carpal tunnel and growing at a rapid rate!
