Bump Update – 32 Weeks

Eight weeks to go and almost eight months pregnant! Where has the time gone?!?! I feel like I say that every week. Oh and this is the first “barefoot and pregnant” no frills picture because it was 80 degrees in my house… in FL… in August… and I did not care. I got the quickest picture possible then went and put on as few clothes as possible. (Don’t worry, it’s somewhat fixed now and the AC guy is coming in the morning to fix it for good!)


32 Weeks (8/19/2013)

How far along? 32 weeks
Baby’s Size: Squash
Maternity clothes? Yep, and even starting to feel a little sad about the items I have and love and wish I could make non-maternity!
Best moment this week: NO question- seeing baby’s face at our 3D/4D ultrasound!!! I’ll share more in a post tomorrow! It was one of the best moments of my pregnancy, second only to hearing she was a girl.
Miss anything? My sanity! Beer! SLEEP!
Movement: Yes, and it always makes me smile. Today she was doing Tae Bo in there… MAJORLY kicked/punched on both sides at the same time, like 2 o’clock and 8 o’clock at once. Makes me smile trying to think of what position she’s in and what she’s doing. I’m still not good at all at figuring out what “part” I am feeling.
Food cravings: Still sweets, and I didn’t buy nearly enough while grocery shopping on Thursday. Major regret alert!!! Someone bring me some?
Anything making you queasy or sick: Back to needing some nausea meds. I don’t even remember what life was like before queasiness/nausea anymore. I’m over it, time to move on and just hope it goes away post-pregnancy.
Gender: Baby GIRL! Confirmed for the third time on Saturday at our ultrasound. You KNOW I asked.
Labor signs: Nope. Still don’t think I’ve had any Braxton Hicks contractions. So that’s good!?
Symptoms: I overdid it a bit this weekend with cleaning, and I’m back to needing a little nausea medicine, but mostly feeling pretty good this week.
Belly button in or out? Innie and creepy.
Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy, but I cry so. freaking. easily. I start to get choked up when our customers have issues I can’t solve (I WORK IN HARDWARE.) I cry when I can’t find something in a store or if they’re out of what I need. Our AC broke again today for the 2nd time this month and guess who cried? Me. I was a little bit of a sap before, but now I cry at the drop of a hat and can’t stop. Attractive.
Looking forward to: Our hospital tour on Sunday, and getting signed up for a class or two there. And of course, further organizing and cleaning!

Thanks everyone for your comments on my anxiety post on Saturday! B started his two weeks of “normal” schedule on Sunday, which meant he was off! We did a lot of work clearing out one corner of the stored stuff in the nursery. I also took advantage of the $25 off Amazon Mom new subscription deal to get 160 size 1 diapers for $2, AND utilized an infant/toddler buy/sell/trade group to trade a $20 coupon I had (and couldn’t use) for a bunch of size 2 and size 3 diapers. While who knows if baby girl will “like” the brands, at least I can try to trade them if they don’t work out. And it feels good to know we have some in here. Oh and that one teensy tiny newborn diaper sample I have. It’s so adorable that it hurts.

Speaking of so adorable it hurts… check out Dixie snuggling up with her little sister already! I die.


The next two weeks with B training are going to be stressful, fun, and bittersweet. We already have a lot of evening/weekend plans with our friends here, since most of our friends are B’s coworkers who are also on this 8-5, M-F training schedule until September. Bittersweet though, because it will end, and we’ll go back to having less time to spend together. I’m going to try to enjoy it while I can!

And the funniest part- baby girl seems to want to be on Daddy’s schedule. She is usually a night owl but today- while B was at work in the daytime- baby girl was movin’ and groovin’! I think we have a Daddy’s girl on our hands!

  • You’re looking SO CUTE! Love your bump! :) And I love hearing about all the movement you’re feeling…I absolutely can’t wait until I start feeling stuff!

  • Adorable pug pic! I really look forward to these updates :-)

  • Love the pug pic! So cute! Daisy could care less about my bump! In the last week or so I’ve started feeling BH contractions/period like cramps. Hopefully you won’t for a little while yet. I’m hoping that means I’m making a little bit of progress. I’ll find out on Thursday!

  • Psh, when our A/C broke earlier this summer, I cried and wasn’t even pregnant. And it wasn’t August yet. Floridians are allowed to cry when A/C is unavailable in August!

    Love the Dixie snuggle! How fun that Baby loves her Daddy so much already!

  • I cry at almost every commercial, tv show, cartoon! I think I cried more with Mackenzie though. I do just start crying sometimes and Erin’s like ‘what’s wrong’ and all I can tell him, ‘I don’t know.’ :o)
    Yay for getting diapers! Enjoy some ‘normal’ hours the next two weeks!
