Bumpdate: 32 Weeks!!


How Far Along:
32 weeks! 8 months down - 8 weeks to go! I think I can I think I can...

Baby Size:
A large jicama (whatever that is?) - Baby is approximately 16.7 inches long and weighs about 3.75 lbs (according to BabyCenter)

Have you started to show yet: 
Yes! I feel huge, I don't know how I'm going to keep getting bigger for 8 more weeks.. Lord help me.

Baby Boy!

Maternity Clothes:
oh yeah. It has been so cold that my options have gotten really limited, I'm doing laundry more and more often these days b/c I'm only comfortable in about 5 outfits. And I refuse to buy anything new. Not happening. So ready for non-maternity wear!

Stretch Marks:
Nope but I'm nervous b/c I've been growing a lot! Still using the Mama Mio products and loving them! Pick up some for yourself here.

Thanks to my parents for getting me the Snoogle I've been sleeping a lot better! I would prefer to be Snoogled up in bed than on the couch most evenings. I was skeptical at first but ladies let me tell you, pregnancy pillows are legit. Get yourself one. I kept the packaging so I can roll it up and store it easily again to save for my next pregnancy.

Best Moment Lately: 
Having another Ultrasound to check things out and getting to see our little guy! He looks like a real baby now and measured in the 68th percentile! Perfectly above average but not enormous, phew!

What I miss: 
Being able to roll over in bed easily, being able to stand up easily, being able to put on socks and shoes easily... you get the gist. Things are getting tricky around here. 

Oh yeah he's still hammering around in there, Dave finally saw my belly move from the outside which he found pretty entertaining!

Food Cravings:
Sweets! I have chocolate milk after dinner most nights and crave dessert after lunch too... so strange b/c I was NEVER a sweets person before.

Mainly just discomfort when sitting for any period of time in the same position.. the drive to and from Tulsa over Christmas wasn't very fun. And hello heartburn! I don't go anywhere without a stash of Tums now.

Anything making you queasy or sick: 
Nothing in particular but still feeling terrible when I eat a large or regular sized meal.. snack size meals are my jam.

Labor Signs:
I've had a couple of Braxton Hicks contractions but never more than 1 a day yet.

Belly Button- In or Out?:
There's really no denying it - I've got an outie now. Sometimes I think it's cute but most of the time I'm hoping it gets smashed down with the 4 layers I'm covering it with.

Wedding Rings- On or Off?:

Baby Purchases?:
I got a backup crib sheet since Serena & Lily was having their huge after Christmas sale. And I bought the cutest Christmas bow tie that was on super sale a cute boutique in Tulsa over Christmas!

We haven't bought anything else because the little guy got so spoiled over Christmas!

Looking forward to: 
My 2 showers coming up!!!

You continue to look adorable! The bloated, puffy pregnant ladies ( like I was) must hate you! :) and little guy looks so sweet and squishy in that pic! Oh, a bit of unsolicited advice (because you don't get enough of that while pregnant!) I would get a backup or 12 for your backup sheet. I think we went through 4 sheets a night on more than one occasion when she was sick. We had some inexpensive but still soft plain cotton ones for those nighs.

Lookin' good! You're in the home stretch ... and I get it, you're uncomfortable, but you'll forget all that once he's here! Another piece of unsolicited advice, get some Zantac. I had to take one in the morning and one in the evening to combat my heartburn, but they work great! Good luck with the last 2 months -- so excited for you!

Already can't handle his sweet cheeks! You look great!

You're still looking so cute!! The last few weeks are tough but it will all be worth it at the end. That little face is so sweet and so clear in the ultrasound pic! I agree with Melissa- get extra sheets, I think I have 4 total because we now have a peeing through the diaper issue so I'm changing sheets every other day these days!!
