PREGNANCY UPDATE








I was about to go to for a nap, when I realized I need to write my 32 weeks pregnancy update. To tell you the truth, I haven't felt so energetic this last week. I am a little nervous about Baby MJ arriving earlier than expected. Hoping for a Christmas miracle he stays inside and grows fattier. He is suppose to arrive February 3rd, but he might be planning on coming earlier.
Also, Gavin has been working at a night shift for this week. The down side is that we don't get to see each other or spend some quality time like normally we did. I am counting the days until he is done with this new arrangement at work.
Anyways, everything else is going great in here. We are preparing our Christmas day plans, and wondering what can we eat or how to celebrate it since its just the two of us. For now, all we got are Gold Class tickets to watch 'Star Wars' on Christmas day. If you are outside of Malaysia, you probably do not know what Gold Class it! Its the movie theatre equivalent of flying in Business Class:




How far long: 32 weeks = 224 days. A hippo is born at 225 days of gestation. Definitely feeling like a mama hippo these days.
Baby MJ's size: Baby MJ is the size of a head of a lettuce. This lettuce is moving and tossing all day long, and poking my belly in so many directions.
Weight gain: I've been resting so much after my latest doctor's appointment, that all I do is soft yoga twice a week, and very light walking. I am definitely gaining at least 2 kilos this month.
Miss anything: Missing a nice warm chai latte, and my spinning class that I'm not allow to go anymore.
Belly button in or out: Half out. Silly looking for sure.
Best moment this week: I went for groceries the other day by myself. I managed to get everything and still not overdo my walking. Once I got to the cashier, the cashier man was so concern on me being pregnant and carrying stuff, that he packed all my bags, and even put all the bags back in the grocery cart. Such a helpful young man. Also, I really enjoyed the latin party we went over the weekend. It was wonderful to eat delicious latin american food, and speak Spanish all night.
Sleep: Not so much this week, since Gavin has been working a night shift for this week only. I get really worried at night when he isn't around.
Symptoms: Don't remember if I already started complaining about my sore upper rib cage. Sometimes it feels like Baby MJ is trying to kick down my ribs.  I already told my doctor and she said is all normal and part of pregnancy. Only 8 more weeks with sore ribs!
Food cravings: I've been eating lentils almost everyday, and increasing my dairy consumption, just to add more protein to my diet so Baby MJ can get fattier. I crave every morning for fresh fruits like kiwi, pomegranates, and oranges. 
Movements: It is kind of funny when he pokes his legs or arms on my belly, and Gavin comes to my belly and tell Baby MJ to stop hurting his mama. So adorable those two.
Names: Only a few weeks left to let you all know.
Looking forward to: Looking forward to starting my exercise routine back, even though I know that will take a long time. And also, looking forward to spending Christmas time with Gavin as a family of two for the last time.
