32 Weeks – Hank the Tank

Today we had the 32 week appointment for little brother.  Everything continues to look great and move along smoothly.  He is now starting to measure big, 33-34 weeks instead of 32 weeks.  Looking back Cooper started measuring big at the 36 week mark so his little brother is definitely getting a head start in the size department.  Little brother is definitely a mover.  As soon as I sit to rest he goes into full gear pushing and kicking.  The placenta is on the front of my belly so we are not supposed to be able to feel him as much, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.  The doctor’s guess at this time is that his head is up and on my right side. It is crazy how much movement you can see through my shirt without even touching my belly to feel it.  I have started to have some lower back pain about once a week typically after standing for long stretches of time.  One night I woke up with a charley horse in my calf, so I feel very fortunate that it has only happened once so far.  Overall still feeling really good and usually only waking up once in the night for a restroom stop.  I had wanted to get out and do more walking, but I still feel torn putting Cooper in a stroller for me to get exercise vs. letting him walk for his own exercise.  We walk around the block once a day to get the mail which does take 20 minutes or so, but it definitely can’t count as exercise for me.  The lack of exercise and eating too many sweets could be the primary contributors to me being up 35 lbs. at this point.
