Thirty Two Weeks Pregnant

Thirty Two Weeks! My how the time is passing by quickly. I am okay with that as we are moving in 4 weeks and I can not wait to be in our new home. Time can slow down after that has happened. I am very busy now with all these non stress tests. HA! They should be called all the stress tests! I have brought my two little ones with me, 4 years old and almost 2 years old. They are pretty good at these visits but it is stressful for me. I am strapped to a monitor and have to dictate to the kids, which I sort of hate doing. What is worse is my oldest knows I can’t get up so she is testing her limits, seeing how far she can go. Luckily my doctors office has specific rooms for the non stress tests. I am in my own room with a door that closes so we are not bugging anyone else. As the high risk doctor said, my children are welcome to come to any and all appointments. If someone doesn’t like it, they are in the wrong profession. Go doctor! I go twice a week to these non stress tests. So far it has been okay. Although it does kill my hips. I am in a room with a not so nice hospital bed which does my hips no favors. It takes me 2-3 days to be able to walk normally after these visits. I am laying on this hard bed for 40-60 minutes and my hips hate it. I am seeing my chiropractor once a week now thanks to the non stress tests. Ugh. While I enjoy seeing her, I would rather stretch it to every two weeks as that means I am not in pain! Baby is doing well. I have an in depth ultrasound to check on his intra abdominal umbilical vein varix to make sure it has not grown or started clotting. Fingers crossed it goes well!

Symptoms:

BIG belly! He moves so much it makes my belly jump all around!

Cravings:

Olive garden. But only at 9 or 10 at night. When they are closing. We do not live near an Olive Garden so this makes this particular craving difficult. Brownie mix. MMMM. Not brownies, just the mix. I substitute more oil instead of eggs. MMMM.

Aversions:

Sleeping. My body does not want to sleep anymore!
