Gluten Free Pregnancy | Week 32

How far along? 32 weeks / 33 when this posts
Total weight gain: It was a bad two weeks - clearly there was too much sugar at my disposal... I gained 4 pounds between visits! It's been a challenge the past few weeks as I have basically been on the road - add to that the holidays / bad food choices being easily available, and for a week having a treat cupboard available to me (I rarely keep non-fruit/veg snacks/nuts at my apartment since I lack self control - especially while pregnant!). Clean eating is a go now!
Maternity clothes? Still yes :)
Stretch marks? Still none!
Sleep: Still terrible!
Best moment this week: Coming home. I feel like I haven't been here in ages and I am quite delighted to not have to go anywhere for the next few months! I also scored at TJ Maxx and Marshall's; we have lots of clothes but had few of the things we really needed, so I was excited to be able to stock up on things like hooded towel and burp cloths on the cheap there! Even better there were a few things I was going to get in Buy Buy Baby and on Amazon that I got there (exact same items) way cheaper.
Miss anything? Breathing properly. I'm still recovering from allergies.
Movement: Lots. And he still prefers my right side and I laugh at having a lopsided belly. Bricklet is getting big... and having found my ribs and sticking his arse out has made me really uncomfortable. 
Food cravings: Fruit. I just want to eat at home and nothing to do with the rubbish I have been eating.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Thought of having any more crap food.
Gender: Still a boy.
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Acid reflux and eczema are settling down now (yay / knock on wood!), sore belly from growing, frequent trips to the loo, increased appetite, and I am so tired! So tired. I'm constantly exhausted, probably from all the not sleeping, which really wore me down this week. I would also say I hit 'nesting' this week - I urgently want to have everything ready for him.
Belly button in or out? Still in!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Sadly more on the moody side again this week. Not feeling well / allergies really threw me off. Add to it my tiredness and my husband going on a 2 week business trip to another continent. So I'd say 30/70 split happy vs. sad/mad/other.
What are you looking forward to? The end of pregnancy! I'm working on the assumption he's showing up early, and I just can't wait to 1. meet Bricklet and 2. not being pregnant anymore.  Also looking forward to my husband coming home, I hate being away from him.
