Bumpdate: 32 Weeks

January 21st – January 27th, 2014

So what has been going on this week?
It’s been a busy, busy, BUSY week. We did a lot of work on the nursery to get it ready enough for all of the stuff we were bringing home from the Baby Shower. I had a doctor’s appointment on Friday the 24th. Big week people.

How far along?
32 Weeks.

Maternity Clothes?
I miss pants that have buttons and zippers. I want to feel like a big kid again.

Stretch Marks?
Eek! Yes. I’ve seen a couple small ones on my sides and a couple small ones towards the middle of my stomach. I am slathering oil like crazy and they look like they are fading! I’ve been using the oil stuff I had before, but my mom just ordered me the Mama Mio Oil since everyone is raving about it. I honestly don’t care about the ones on the inside of my thighs because no one will see them, but I can NOT have them all over my stomach. I know I don’t have a lot of control over it, but I’m going to try like hell!

Wiggle Worm central. My app said that he is starting to run out of room so he will be more wiggling around than giving big kicks and hits. Umm… that transition happened a couple weeks ago. Every so often he uses my insides like bongos, but for the most part he’s just squirming. I hope he’s not running out of room already! Although he’s always been measuring ahead, so who knows!

Food cravings?
I am freaking KILLING it with the food. I’m not perfect. Things happen (like Cadbury mini eggs… which I avoided as long as I could since they came out the beginning of JANUARY) but for the most part, it’s cereal for breakfast; fruit, yogurt, or granola bar for snacks, a relatively healthy lunch of leftovers or salad, a smoothie in the afternoon, and a relatively healthy dinner. I’m loving fruit, which is just the cold/sweet snack that I need. No ice cream in almost 3 weeks!

Nausea, vomiting, or sickness?
Nope. Doing good. (*knock on wood*)

What I miss:
Wine. Italian subs. Sleeping on my stomach. Not being tired. A waist line. Being able to put my shoes on without a struggle. Getting up from the couch without grunting. Not feeling like a poltergeist is going to rip through my belly button. Being able to do more than one thing in a day. Yep, yep, and yep.

Round ligament pains are a bitch. I mean, I’ve had them since before I saw those two pinks lines (it’s actually the reason I took a test, I remembered them from my first pregnancy. When doctors tell you that they don’t happen for awhile, they lie) but they are pretty killer lately. And last a little longer than the initial zing they used to have. Heartburn is a beast. And the breathing. Same ish different day. The NP told me that all pregnant women have trouble breathing and I should know the difference between that and when I should use my inhaler. I then wondered if she had checked my chart to see that I’ve been to the doctor, hooked up to an ekg to check my heart, and then sent to a pulmonary specialist who then put me on a daily inhaler (and upped my dose) because it isn’t just normal “trouble breathing” it’s that my body is a total hot mess of symptoms mixing together with shit I already had and making it worse. No? Ok. Thanks lady!

Best moment this week?
Getting to hear his sweet heartbeat at my appointment! Hitting 8 months officially (sometimes I pretend that it really IS 9 months and I’m almost done…rather than the actual 10). My Baby Shower. It was a big week.

I did my prenatal yoga DVD and went for a walk with KG (in the rain and cold – commitment). Plus I’ve been pretty much non-stop so that helps I’m sure.


I’m not answering this. Every time I say something I screw myself. Although I did wake up with splitting side pain last night which concerned me, but I think I was just sleeping weird and there was probably a baby wreaking havoc on my insides. So that was fun.

What I'm looking forward to?
Getting everything organized from the shower. Going on a massive shopping spree with Ma Dukes to get the rest of the stuff we need. Moving upstairs. Seeing my GORGEOUS bathroom finished. (Seriously, it is going to be amazing). Everything. Life is good!
Bert bomb. Once again. He loves to be in pictures. And also legit will not leave my side. He's such a good boy!

He just needed some love and attention. I think someone's worried about not being Mama's Baby anymore. I try to tell him that we are just getting a new bud to play with and that he's going to LOVE him when he starts eating solids, but he's still skeptical.

Linking up with Kristen over at Mama and Mou!


  1. 32 weeks! You are so incredibly close!! I can not believe how quickly the time has flown. And you are right, you definitely are rocking it with your food. And I can't resist those damn Cadburry eggs either. Gah! They are so good! And I am going to try and get your shower gift in the mail tomorrow. I forgot it at home once again today! Oops!

  2. Getting so close. I know it's tough but savor the last few weeks. I miss being pregnant but love having my little man in my arms!

  3. I have yet to buy an actual stretch mark cream. I've just been using lotion. I don't know which to get, but I guess its different for everyone.
    Ughh I'm tired of pants with buttons and zippers at this point. Some of my work pants get a bit snug by the end of the day and I get button marks on my stomach.

  4. This is so random but is that your handwriting on the board? It's so pretty!

  5. wow!! 8 months already!! Craziness! You still looked wonderful! How did you like your prenatal yoga DVD? Sometimes I feel silly doing mine because I don't feel like I am really "working out"! lol

  6. UGH, I HATED round ligament pain! I feel like it was something I had never heard of and it totally blind sighted me! You are getting SO close though! The end is in sight!
