thirty-one & thirty-two weeks!

bump watch: measured exactly 30 weeks at my appointment at 30 weeks and 2 days. my next appointment isn't until 33 weeks so we'll see how baby girl is growing! the size doesn't seem much different to me, but somehow i'm feeling more unwieldy, having a harder time rolling out of bed in the morning or bending down to help Greta get dressed.

little peanut: at 32 weeks is the size of a head of lettuce, 3.9 pounds and 19 inches long. her fingernails have finished growing and now her toenails are starting to develop! she's breathing in amniotic fluid as her lungs continue to develop.

best moment: finding some new maternity dresses on clearance last week! they'll be perfect for maternity pictures, and for the weekend getaway we're planning to celebrate our anniversary next month.

symptoms: this past weekend i was definitely feeling tired, achy, dizzy, and emotional for no particular reason. i was starting to think this would just be the norm for the rest of the pregnancy, but yesterday and today are much better, so who knows? definitely having more Braxton Hicks (especially in the car!), and occasional mild cramping. no regular contractions yet. baby girl, keep cooking! and my blood pressure was perfect at my last appointment, so hopefully that trend continues.

cravings: La Croix coconut sparkling water. i'm obsessed.

what i miss: real beer. i had a sip of Nick's beer at the Oktoberfest celebration we went to this weekend and it was sooo good.
looking forward to: meeting Amelia's sweet baby girl next month when they come to visit!
