32 weeks + hot dogs & squash

Poppyseed is almost 4 pounds this week! (Well, supposedly.) I had my 32 week check-up on Tuesday, and all is going well. I have been really blessed with a healthy pregnancy on Poppyseed's side of things... he has been doing GREAT. (Just his momma who has to deal with all the side effects, haha.)

Luckily, my back has been feeling a lot better. It's just more general lower back pain vs. the super sharp pain in my SI joint. I can definitely handle general muscle/joint soreness. 

Busted out the leggings this week! I actually love this outfit.
Nothing super exciting happened this week... pretty much a boring week in the pregnancy world. I definitely do not forget that I am pregnant though - he is moving all the time. I have also been having a few Braxton Hicks contractions, which are a little uncomfortable, but really not a big deal. They give me an excuse to go lay down for awhile. ;)

Our friends had us over one night for a bonfire and wienie roast. Let me say, I typically do not like hot dogs very much, but this hot dog tasted SO good. I might have even had a second one. (So unlike me... before know it, I'll be eating beans & wienies every night.) It was a perfect night for a fire and to catch up with some friends.

Hot dog + ginormous pile of Cheddar & Sour Cream Ruffles = one happy Sara. 
32 Weeks - The Facts

Poppyseed's size: Jicama! And yes, I know what a jicama is... it's actually really good. They remind me a lot of water chestnuts (at least the texture.) I love it chopped up on salads, but I always forget to pick them up at the store.

Sleep: Overall, much better. Still have days when I wake up super early (like 4am)... I just choose to make those extra productive days.

Movement: He is definitely a mover!

Running/Workouts: The elliptical and I are becoming BFF's.

Cravings: The usual suspects - mac & cheese, cheese quesadillas, straight up cheese sliced from the block. I've also been loving the autumn squash soup at Panera... there was an instance where I was there two days in a row. (At least it's semi-healthy, maybe? Vegetables?) Let's just say my skin might be turning orange. 

Delicious squash soup that tastes like pumpkin pie in a bowl.
What I am missing: Sleeping on my belly, and running in this gorgeous weather. I just keep reminding myself how awesome it will be to start running again in January. With the beautiful snowstorms, ice-coated streets, and sub-zero temps. Haha.... yea.

Looking forward to: Heading to Michigan this afternoon to soak up some time with my Business Man! We are staying at our favorite B&B and even have a massage scheduled for tomorrow. And of course, the good food. Cannot wait.
