Baby Bump: 32 Weeks

32 weeks & 4 days to be exact! Ahhh! Here's the latest bump update for you!


Baby: About the size of a head of lettuce (19 in, 3.9 lbs)

How I feel: PREGNANT! It's definitely starting to wear on me more lately. I'm tired all the time & my body aches in ways I never really knew it could. But other than that, I'm making it! I'm hoping the heat is starting to calm down here.. I need some fall weather in my life-- weather that won't make me instantly start sweating the moment I step outside.

Food: I'm still not craving anything really. I have noticed I'm a little more hungry than normal.. I think it's because Ruby is gaining half a pound each week!

Clothing: Nothing new in the clothing department really over here. I'm sure pretty soon I'll have to invest in some maternity jeans (even though I'm almost done with this pregnancy). I don't think I'll be able to quite make it wearing shorts every day until mid-October. Currently though, on "cooler" days, I've gotten away with wearing leggings & they suffice. Plus they're comfy. So maybe I won't have to buy any jeans after all.

Sleep: Like I said before, I'm tired all the time. I'm having a harder time falling asleep, but it's really not been too terrible. I wake up a lot during the night to go to the bathroom. My doctor says that Ruby is making her way head down & I can definitely feel the pressure on my bladder (ha!).

Best moment of the week: On Sunday our cul-de-sac had the sweetest baby shower for me! My mom & mother-in-law got to join in on the fun as well. Ruby & I definitely felt loved by our neighbors. Seriously guys, I don't think we will EVER have this awesome of neighbors again in our lifetime. They are the best. Andrew & I love where we live because of them.






What I'm looking forward to: We still have two more baby showers coming up! I'm excited to start washing all of Ruby's clothes & getting everything in order before she comes. It seems like time is flying by & I can't believe my eyes every time I look at the calendar. We still have one more baby class next month over infant massage which we're excited about! We finished all of our other ones (Caring for Your Baby, Birth of Your Baby, Breastfeeding, & Infant CPR) & I feel so much more informed about this whole experience we're about to embark on. Andrew on the other hand may be a little more nervous after watching the birthing video in class the other night ;). We're both super excited about her arrival, but we're definitely soaking in our last few weeks of being a family of two.

Here's to the last 7-8ish more weeks!
