32 Week Update


8. More. Weeks. I can't believe it! Some days it feels like the time flew. Other days it feels like it's going by as it should. As much as I'm looking forward to meeting my girl, I could use a few more weeks to wrap my brain around the fact that I'm about to be someone's mother. Sooo crazy! 


32 WEEK UPDATE

Due date?
September 16th

How far along?
32 weeks + 1 day! 

How big is baby?
According to BabyCenter.com: By now, your baby weighs 3 3/4 pounds and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You're gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, she'll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb. She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.

Cravings?
Still loving on some watermelon. Oh...and I'm craving breads and pastries. I could seriously eat a dozen croissants right now. Not good for this ever expanding rear end of mine. 

How I feel?
Still dealing with some indigestion although the Tums are really helping. And the exhaustion I felt in my first trimester is creeping back in. I've been super tired the past week or so. I guess baby is rapidly growing at this stage and she's taking all of my good energy. ;)

Showing?
Oh yeah. Per my last OB appointment, I've gained 33 pounds. Which means I only have room for 2 more pounds to be in the "healthy" weight gain category. Yeah...not likely. Sure wish I wasn't craving those croissants.

Movement?
She's an active little girl. We've progressed from kicks to full on movements. I was laying in bed the other night and my stomach was vibrating...like a little mini earthquake. Guess she was trying to find herself a comfortable night time position. It's so fun to see her moving around in there like that. So fun.

Gender?
Baby Webb is a girl! Read all about the gender reveal here.

Looking forward to?
Just meeting her. And kissing her. 

Sleeping OK?
Yep, still sleeping pretty well. With the occasional late night trip to the bathroom.

Next Doctor's Appointment?
Next Thursday, August 1st

Prayer Requests?
For me and my baby girl - for a continued healthy pregnancy.

For me and my hubby to continue to be in prayer together and to be on one accord as it relates to raising children. I desire to have an "us against them" mentality. I always want him to feel like he's my priority above everything else. Even the little people.

For this new and huge transition in our lives. Hubby and I are pretty care free. We come and go as we please, stay out late, eat when we want, etc. All of that is about to change, so I want to be as prepared as possible for it.
