My Baby Story: 32 Weeks.

This week also went by super fast. One week of December already in. Usually December seems the fastest month of the year for me. I hope it isn't, since I want to treasure every single moment and day I have her in my stomach to the maximum. =) Plus, I love December because it is the Holidays and I like the festive atmosphere, decorated trees, garlands, lights, hot cocoa and Christmas music around me.

To My Baby Girl:
Baby Girl, you have been tossing and turning a ton this week, it's like you are a little dancer. As much as it pains me to know you are not very comfortable (moving this much) since it is a small area there, at the same time I know you are growing up each day, getting bigger, stronger, healthier. So you moving a lot, is a good thing. I also know that feeling all those moves & kicks means you are healthy & strong and just being a baby. I guess I should get used to them since as the next few weeks will go by, you will get bigger and the space around you will seem smaller. I put up the tree a couple of days ago with you in mind. You already have some ornaments I purchased for you and YOU ALONE (candy & cupcake ornaments). The tree this year is White with splashes of Pink because IT'S A GIRL, YOU ARE A GIRL!! I purchased all new everything. Yes I spent quite a bit on them but since this tree and this Christmas, we are only thinking of you, I thought it was fit to buy brand-new ornaments because you will be New in our lives and the best gift any Christmas, any New Year's and any Holiday combined could bring us. I think the tree came out gorgeous and you would love it. You will get to see it in photos, one day.

I love you my little cupcake, Mamma's Sweetheart!!

How Far Along: 32  weeks (give or take 8 months).
Total Weight Gain: I haven't weighed myself this week. Maybe I have gained a pound or two from last time.
Stretch Marks? I am maybe noticing one going the long way (vertically). But more than a typical wrinkly stretch mark I think it is just my skin all stretched out to hold all the weight I have gained. I keep forgetting to apply Almond Oil. I need to start applying daily from now till at least a month after giving birth.
Maternity Clothes? Yes, of course. I have been wearing maternity pants, tops & my Maternity skirt this week. However yesterday I was wearing my Non-Maternity Skinny Corduroys that still fit me very well, actually they are a little loose on the waist (low waist). And today I am wearing a very comfortable, loose, Non-Maternity, Empire-Waist Dress.

Best moment this week: Every moment is the best as long as I know she keeps growing in my belly. =)
Miss Anything?  Certain foods especially typical Junk (American) food, as well as Chinese food & Mexican food. I never ate any of these that much, but now I am craving them.
Movement: Yes,  several times a day. Especially when I get hungry, while or after eating and late at night before I go to sleep.
Food Cravings: Like I said I have been craving junk food lately. But I have also craved classic, traditional Albanian dishes with either Beef or Lamb. I have enjoyed some classic Albanian dishes this week, though.
Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
Gender: A Little Princess.
Belly button in or out? Half-way in, getting more out.
Wedding rings on or off? On but loose. I keep it on my middle finger, usually.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy in general, but I am starting to get a little nervous & scared because she will be here SOON!
Looking forward to: Receiving a packiage of goods from one of my best friends, some of it is stuff from her own daughter who is now 11 months old, and some of it is brand-new, purchased for my baby girl.
