Bumpdate: 32 Weeks

Forgive me for being a day late with this prego update.  There were more important things last night.  Like the special Tuesday-night episode of The Bachelor. :)

No major thoughts this week.  Though it does seem crazy that I'm already making plans for May.  Like travel plans to Iowa.  That revolve around a second baby!  And did I mention the hubs has to go out of town for work for a week in May and again in June?!  I'm already terrified.  Hence, the potential traveling to Iowa to--fingers crossed--have some help from the fam!  Though I'm trying to figure out if it'll be more work to pack and drive to Iowa alone with two kids, or more work to stay at home and care for two kids alone...

How Far Along: 32 weeks

Size of Baby: ~16.7 inches, 3 3/4 pounds; the size of a jicama

Gender: BOY

Weight Gain: 25 pounds, the same as last week = relief!

Food Cravings: Nothing specific

Food Aversions: None

Movement: The same

Sleep: Back to sleeping pretty well!

Clothing: Same--maternity pants, long sleeve maternity tops, dresses with leggings.  Turns out, I don't love winter maternity clothing like I do summer!  What I wouldn't give to wear my maternity skirts...

Other Pregnancy Symptoms: The frequency of Braxton Hicks seems to have lessened, but maybe I'm just getting used to them so much that I don't notice them?  I'm back to wearing my wedding band every day and have worn the same shoes that killed my feet a week ago every other day this week--so swelling must have subsided.  Some acid reflux here and there.  5+ days in a row of headaches, but I think it's more weather than hormone/pregnancy-related.  Mostly just uncomfortable and big-feeling.

What I Miss: The ability to have my back popped.  I've had a headache everyday for what seems like forever now and I often think it would improve if the hubs could just pop my back to release some tension.  But since I can't lay on my stomach, it's not really an option. :(

Best Moment: Realizing I only have to work seven more work weeks this school year, INCLUDING this week!  Then, no work until August!

Looking Forward To: Spring Break in 2 1/2 weeks!


  1. Sarah you look amazing! You can do this, whether you travel or stay home... You've got this!

  2. So excited for you!!!! You are almost there!!! Two little boys will be sooo fun!!!

  3. It is worth it to go home and have extra help!! Or maybe they will come to you. Go where there is help, which will offer you rest and the least amount of stress!!
