Bean Update # 5

Well, it's been about 13 weeks since the last update, so I figure I should do another!
Here's the belly at 32 weeks:
 Here at 33+1:

How far along? 36 weeks (9 months! 34 days --or fewer-- to go!)
EDD: January 31st- it will happen.
Total weight gain:21 lbs.
Maternity clothes? getting tighter
Stretch marks?no new ones yet
Sleep: I had to start sleeping on a little bit of an incline because I can't really catch my breath when supine
Miss Anything? being able to bend over and not get winded
Movement: this child is trying to reposition my insides!
Food cravings: sugar and alcohol
Anything making you queasy or sick: all the movement- rollercoaster from the inside
Gender: still a boy, I hope...
Labor Signs: Ribbons of sensation...I remember having it with Gracen too. It's like the most miniscule ripening of the cervix that will continue over the next 5 weeks until delivery.
Symptoms: Typical irritability and boredom with the pregnancy. Trying to hold off the feeling of being "done".
Belly Button in or out? in, never does pop.
Wedding rings on or off? on. with the cold weather, I have to keep turning my engagement ring to stay right-side up
Happy or Moody most of the time: I think happy, my family thinks moody.
Looking forward to: Saturday, January 12th (baby shower!)

Tim "the gun" Bergon

My husband and I dialogue:

Tim: "Your birthday present is shipping from Banglaore."
Me: "Um-Hmm."
Tim: "It's coming from India."
Me: "Hmm...well, if it's coming from India, I am sure you paid more than $3.99 to have it shipped."
Tim: "Well, it is and I'm not sari about it."

I can't remember this one word for word, but it went something like this:

Tim: "I want Kraft Parmesan."
Me: "We always get that; I like the more authentic stuff."
Tim: "But I like Kraft and the one we have is the same stuff that Carl gets at the station. So, when I'm at work, I have to use it there too and it doesn't make my lunch as enjoyable. And then I'm grumpy and it upsets my whole day and that effects my job performance. This is serious; people could die if my job performance is effected."
Me: blank stare

Me: "Fine, I'll get you Kraft."

This one was from a while ago:

Madeleine: Dada, why are we stopping for gas?
Tim: Because we need just a few gallons, we can't drive out to wine country and run out of gas...then we'll have to put wine in the car...and we already have enough whine in the car."

And there was another great one from last night that I cannot remember! Ugh, I will ask Tim what made me laugh and post it. Anyways, hope this makes you chuckle a little.
Love, Lauren
