32 Week Bumpdate

I say it every week, but we CAN'T WAIT to meet this little fella! 


Thanks for the new shirt, mom! ;)
Our baby:
  • He is almost 4 pounds and about 19 inches long! 
  • His skin is becoming less and less translucent and more soft and smooth.
Best parts of the week:
  • When we went back to my parent’s house this weekend, we had some maternity pictures taken! The photographer even sent us a sneak peak the same night she took them! You know I am a big picture person, so I am thrilled to have sweet pictures to capture this special time, and I’m so excited to see the rest in a couple weeks! 
  • I feel him hiccuping at least once a day, which never fails to make me smile! 
Cravings:
  • Chocolate has been on my radar the past week – thanks mom for the chocolate zucchini cake this weekend! :) 
Symptoms:

  • The usual + an itchy belly! 
  • THANK YOU for your prayers! After three weeks, I am no longer having foot pain. I was even able to go for a walk with Thomas and my parent’s dog this weekend. I am beyond thankful to get back to morning walks with my husband! 

Funny/Weird Things:

  • I’ll tell you what, pregnancy must be catching up with me. I have had all kinds of comments and questions just about every day over the past month, but this past week I started to get some negative comments - how tired and under the weather I look and how I have the pregnant walk, etc. I even had a man mock the way I’m walking, but I didn't think I was waddling yet! Yikes!
  • I also had a woman walking towards me shout out about a lizard on the wall because she didn't want me to get scared and go into labor! 
Other: My mom, aunt, and sister have a baby shower planned for me next weekend, and I am really, really excited about it! The baby and I are feeling very blessed and loved!

    1. It's from Kohl's! My mom is so sweet and got it for me because she said she remembers feeling like she had nothing to wear towards the end of her pregnancies!

  6. I love your shirt! You really look so great. I hate when people feel they need to tell you how tired/sick/bad you look. Like really, what good is that supposed to accomplish?
