Update and 32 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 32 weeks 3 days

Size of baby: Baby is the size of a head of lettuce (19 inches, 3.8 lbs)

Maternity Clothes: Yep. All Maternity when I get dressed. Otherwise yoga pants and XL t-shirts.

Gender: Baby BOY! Sawyer Anthony. 

Movement: Yes but more distinct movements which are more uncomfortable for me. 

Sleep: I've been sleeping pretty well this week!

What I miss: Feeling normal. I think I say that every week. I'm just ready to have my body back to myself. I said that last week and I am saying it again this week. (yep, this again)

Cravings: Dairy. All the dairy. Yogurt with berries, string cheese, ice cream.

Symptoms: That's where this post will get interesting. If you follow me on social media then you probably already saw that Sawyer and I spent the day in L&D being observed yesterday. My blood pressure started creeping up last week some and was pretty high on Monday night. After resting in the L&D triage all day my pressures stabilized and my labs all came back ok. I went to my normal doctor's appointment this morning, my blood pressure was still good and I turned in my 24 hour urine. My doctor just called and my 24 hour urine is still within normal range so I get to be on modified bedrest for now and as long as I can keep my blood pressure under control at home I'm good until I see her again next week. I am still measuring about a week ahead and his heart rate is great, I got to listen to it all day yesterday on the monitor. I am so thankful to be able to live a somewhat normal life for now, but I have to take it easy- which means no grocery shopping (yay for grocery pick up) or cleaning or anything active- like at all. We REALLY want to make it to 36 weeks!

So that's the update. Nothing like an eventful pregnancy.
