32 Week Baby Update

Due Date? October 2nd--I will most likely be induced a week or two early again though because of my BP so we're looking at a September baby.

How far along? 32 weeks today

How big is baby? almost 4 pounds and the size of a head of lettuce

Weight gain? +27--gained quite a bit in 2 weeks. Not sure if that's actually weight gain or more water weight as my feet have definitely started to swell and get poofy. Either way, the numbers is creeping up there and I don't like it!

Maternity clothes? Yep

Stretchmarks? not yet

Sleep? I am currently using 3 pillows to help get comfortable and that seems to be helping. Still waking up a lot though to change positions.

Best moment this week? Got the baby bedding on the crib and some newborn boy and girl stuff washed so I have something to get started with.

Movement? All the time although they are turning more in to rolls instead of kicks and punches.

Food cravings? I have had a sweet tooth lately.

Gender? Team Green

Labor signs? Been having some tightening or Braxton hicks or contractions periodically. Sometimes at night they get decently bad. ??? Not sure what that's all about but they always seem to go away so i'm not overly worried right now.

Belly button in or out? in but starting to get more flat

What I miss? Laying and sleeping on my stomach, being able to breath, and not waddling.

What I am looking forward to? The end! If I could tap out now, I would. I'm pretty done being pregnant. I want to wear normal clothes and be able to bed over. I am trying to enjoy these last fees weeks though because I do love feeling the little peanut move in there! Although I do find myself trying to rush the days away. :o/

Milestones? made it to 32 weeks which means we could very well only have 6 weeks to go! 6 weeks seems like a long time but really it's not all that far away. And since Hannah starts soccer and school at the being of September, i think the time is really going to fly by!

Next doctor's appointment? August 20th--which will put me just shy of 34 weeks. BP was 142/86 and that was the second time she took it. The first time she said the first number was higher. :o/ it maybe looks like my bp is starting to creep up a bit. Doc mentioned a 24 hour urine...I wouldn't be surprised if I have to do one soon. Boo! NSTs are going well. I have another ultrasound before my next appointment (the 20th) so we get to see the peanut again which is always exciting. Nick is going to go with me to that one...maybe he's afraid I am going to peak at the sex! :oP

No bump pic yet. When I actually get dressed, I will take one and post it.

  1. Maybe nick wants to peak. :)
    September is so close! I know December is a ways away, but I know the Christmas stuff will be in stores early and target employee told me they were marking down toys to make room for Christmas toys. I may have had a mini panic attack. I need more prep time. :)


I'd love to hear from you!! :o)
