This week Dawson weighs about 3.75lbs and is about the size of a jicama (about 16.7 inches long). Don't worry, I'll post a picture of a jicama in a second for those of you who don't know what this is. I hadn't the faintest idea. I mean make comparisons with easier fruit/veggies, Baby Center :)
This past week was busy, but like I said, I feel like it's starting to drag a bit. I had a baby shower and then I hosted a wedding shower for my dear old friend Brooke that I grew up with. She is getting married in October - let's hope some of this baby weight is gone before I have to slip into my bridesmaid dress.....
I feel great. I seem to be growing at a rapid pace. Baby Center says I should be gaining about a pound a week with half of that weight going straight to Dawson. She will gain about half of her birth weight within the next 7 weeks.
I have been eating a lot of sweets. Maybe that's why she's been so active in my tummy. Sugar high, perhaps? I feel like she's running out of room. My stomach is getting tighter and tighter. I still haven't seen stretch marks, so hopefully I can steer clear of those. I don't know if I have mentioned this, but all I've been using is the Kiehl's Creme de Corps body lotion. I love it! Such a great lotion pregnant or not pregnant. So moisturizing.
Here's the Jicama.
And here I am at 32 weeks on Sunday. Wowzers. I think my stomach is more along the lines of a jumbo basketball than a Jicama.
