Alright ladies these weeks are just going by a little to quickly now! If you follow the Honeybee on FB or Instagram you’ve probably already seen this pic I posted the other day but wanted to do a full update…
At our last appointment this little lady was already over 4 lbs (and that was two weeks ago), head down and in launch position! Hoping she stays that way until after 37 weeks (which is apparently considered full term if your having a girl. My doctor said 38 weeks is a good window if your having a boy) Either way we want her to bake as long as she needs to plump her little self up! Although at my 30 week ultrasound she already had a rather large tummy and little double chin! haha love that!
How far along: 32 Weeks
Total weight gain: 20 pounds gained!
Maternity clothes: Still just one pair of maternity jeans and one pair of maternity leggings. Im determined not to purchase any more. I still wear my normal jeans just unbuttoned/unzipped with my belly band over them. Although Im leaning more towards the leggings daily because the pants are feeling a bit snug. Also SERIOUSLY need to buy a nursing bra, top and pads. Any recommendations are welcome if you ladies have favorites!!
Stretch marks: not yet! (still knocking on wood)
Sleep: Up at least twice a night for bladder calls but luckily still pretty good. I’ve also adopted three pillows now to make this tummy a little more comfortable 😉
Miss Anything: Yes medicine! I have come down with another cold! I guess these little babies really do take a lot out of you. I’m hoping this is just a small cold and doesn’t progress into one like I had a couple months ago. Im also missing out on lots of girls nights and girls trips with my non prego friends. This new life style is sinking in but I have to say while I miss these fun outings with the girls Im pretty darn lucky and excited about this new life to come!!!!!!!
Movement: Lots of movements! Her kicks literally stop me in my tracks now. Also she is having a lot more hiccups in my third trimester! Did this happen to any of you as well?
Cravings: Lots of carbs lately! Cereal has always been my favorite food but i’ve been an animal around it!
Symptoms: As previously mentioned my eye lashes are still pretty sparse. I also have some lovely little dark spots showing up on my face (Its called the mask of pregnancy apparently) but can be covered up with makeup and usually disappear after the baby arrives.
Belly Button in or out: Out
Mood: Pretty good besides having this cold. I did have one day last week where I was in such a bad mood I just hid out in my room because I didn’t want to snap at my hubby…. Love these horomones!
Looking forward to: My next doctors appointment and starting our parenting classes this week (should be entertaining to say the least 😉
Exercise: Just walking a few days a week now.
Nutrition: Pretty much the same just upping my calories a bit in this last trimester. At my last doctors appointment I hadn’t gained any weight (when I should have gained two lbs) She said the baby is measuring perfect but she is just taking everything I am eating and I should up my calories a little bit esp in the third trimester. Needless to say after the hubby heard that, we went straight to Whole Foods cookie section and dominated!
Favorite moments this week: My husband giggling at me when he catches me changing or getting up in the middle of the night to “waddle” to the bathroom. I told him i’m going to get a complex if keeps laughing everytime he see’s my bare belly! I have been so lucky to have a husband who is so excited (if not more excited than I am) to have a little baby girl! The way his face lights up when he sees me has truly made this whole experience for me and I know just how fortunate I am to have him! Now just remind me of this when DELIVERY day comes and i’m cursing him out 😉
