32 weeks

I'm 32 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 32 Weeks
Size of baby: Hollis is the size of a sack of potatos (about 3.75 lbs)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 14 lbs
At the Dr's office they said I gained 16 lbs but at home I wear the same thing every time I weigh in and at the dr I had on flip flops & a sundress the first weigh in and today heavy boots and clothes so I'm going to stick with my at home weight gain!
Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans and pants but everything else is regular. I'm down to just a few things I can still fit into. ha!
Gender: It's a girl!!! Hollis Barrett Stamps
Movement: She is VERY active - especially in the afternoon and at night
Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty good!
What I miss: Nothing really - maybe sleeping on my stomach? Or bending over? ha!
Cravings: I've lost my appetite lately - I think maybe my stomach has run out of room?
Symptoms: Lately I've been having a lot of pressure - mostly because she is low and it's the second pregnancy. I think my morning sickness may be back.
Best Moment this week: Doctor's visit today and hearing her heartbeat! She is measuring right on track and everything looks good!

I had a rough day yesterday. I went to Bible Study and then Laurie and I went to visit a shut in from church and while we were at their house I started getting super nauseous. So I came home and slept while Harper napped and then I started having a lot of pain - maybe more pressure than anything. So as soon as Scott finished working - he took over taking care of Harper and I got in bed. I was SO sick. I thought maybe I had gotten the stomach flu but now I think maybe my morning sickness might be back? Thankfully after all that rest - my pain/pressure is gone. I'm trying really hard to slow down and take it easy but it's SO hard when you have a toddler and when I feel like I have SO much to do before Hollis comes - along with cleaning house and laundry and everything else that needs to be done. Right now I'm just so thankful for MDO so I can get a few hours of rest or a few things done and for Scott who is really helping me! I don't know how Mrs. Duggar does it - having so many babies! ha!
(I should add I saw my doctor today and I think I'm okay - just normal second baby/sitting low feelings. And I feel much better tonight!!!)

P.S. I'll try to get a full schedule up by tomorrow but Friday's SUYL is going to be all about adoption. I realize that doesn't affect most people but I thought it would be fun for people to share their adoption experiences and I know a lot of you may be thinking that way or considering adoption - and it might be helpful! Adoption is a wonderful thing!!!! So if you have adopted - I pray you will share your story with us on Friday!!!
