32 weeks

  • Baby girl is just a bit under 4 pounds and getting bigger every day! She's got finger and toenails and real hair. According to my weekly baby center updates, her skin is starting to become soft and smooth as she "plumps up" in preparation for birth. Eeep!
  • If the old wives tale regarding heartburn and the baby coming out with hair is true, this little one may have lots of cute little bows in her future. Heartburn is a regular occurrence around here, no matter what or when I eat. Thank goodness for tums.
  • The kicks and movement are getting stronger. Maybe we have a dancer on our hands?
  • Sleep is getting pretty uncomfortable. It takes some serious effort to roll from side to side. That coupled with my {at least} once nightly trip to the toilet equal a sleepy mama. Prep for motherhood, that's for sure.
  • My feet have grown about half a size...and it's not swelling, they are just...bigger. I never knew this would happen but some of my shoes are seriously tight!
  • I've also had some aches and pains here and there. My back and hips, mostly. I started seeing a chiropractor a couple months back and it has seriously been one of the best things I've done throughout this pregnancy. He can work wonders!
  •  Some of you have asked, and yes, baby girl does in fact have a name. The hubs and I decided on the first name a few months ago, but we're still undecided on her middle name. We're going to wait until she's here for the big reveal. 
  • I'm so looking forward to this weekend. Tomorrow we're headed back to my hometown for my first baby shower. I can't wait to see my family and best friends! I'll hopefully have lots of pictures to share next week :)
