Today marks 32 weeks into pregnancy and instead of saying 8 weeks left, I'm leaving it between 6-10 because that is just more realistic. That way I can't get ticked off when Feb 10th comes and goes and we still don't have little Nojo around here.
All is well according to my midwife who I saw today. The baby's HR has dropped a bit so for those who believe that actually means something, it would lean toward a boy. I've thought it was a girl and now I'm starting to doubt that, also due to dreams I've had. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
I have now felt the baby have the hiccups twice which is a riot. What a strange feeling, but it's a relief to feel them low, indicating the baby's head is staying down. Now if we can make sure I don't have a posterior baby (translation = painful back labor), we should be set.
Sleeping is getting a bit more challenging and uncomfortable, but not too bad yet. I wake up fairly sore from sleeping in one position, but feel OK after moving around a bit. I have kept Jonathan up a bit more with my tossing and turning; it's a pretty big effort to get from one side to the other. He's patient and understanding, though and doesn't make a fuss about it. He did comically refer to putting a cot in the baby's room after delivery (for me) so that he doesn't wake up every time the baby does. Somehow I didn't find that as funny. I give him 2 weeks max to sleep through every nighttime feeding! Our midwife says two nights.
Nothing much else going on; getting ready to head down to our parents' for Christmas. I hope this finds everybody ready for the holidays!
