32 weeks pregnant

IMG_7262

How the little bean has developed;

  • I now about the size of a squash
  • I’m 42.4 cm long and I weigh 3.75lbs now
  • I’m running out of space in here now mummy as I’m getting so big I’m still moving a lot though to let you know I’m OK
  • I can use all on my five senses, I can hear your voice, taste the amniotic fluid, look around me and grab at my placenta
  • I’ve grown my fingernails and toenailsย 
  • Keep checking my movements as they won’t slow down from now on remember to #countthekicks

Mummy update

Baby is continuing to do well and at my 32 week doctors check I was told I have a very nice size bump and the baby feels a good size. Wondering now if that means she’s about average or does good size mean that she’s going to be big??

She’s in the head down position which is great and I’m hoping that she stays that way until she is born. I’m feeling so much movement, the doctor just had to look at my stomach to see it moving, she didn’t need to feel it!

The baby does feel quite cramped up against my ribs at the moment and it’s always a guessing game what might be a bum, foot or leg that’s moving around.

Day to Day life

Things are definitely moving along at home now, which is a good thing seen as baby’s arrival isn’t so far away and Christmas is now less than a month.

The baby’s room is decorated and now just waiting for the carpet to go down and hubby can build the furniture and cot we’ve got. I’ll also have room to store the bits I’ve been buying.

The kitchen fitters started on Wednesday so next week I should have a working kitchen and I should also have doors on the extension so we will be properly water tight and have a proper room. I’m so excited.

I really need to start thinking about Christmas, with the great points exchanges going on at Tesco and Sainsburys, I’ve got the boys main present sorted out. I’ve also been looking on Amazon for their black Friday week, maybe a little too much with all the packages that are arriving…

The boys are so excited about Christmas and Ben has been practising for the school nativity which is next week. Will is doing a Carol Service this year which is always great to watch, so there has been lots of singing of Christmas Carols going on at home.

Health update

Braxton Hicks were coming thick and fast last Saturday which was a little bit concerning it didn’t matter what I did they wouldn’t stop. I did however manage to get to my hair appointment and have it cut and coloured for the last time before baby arrives!

I’ve also been feeling more breathless than normal and my heart has been racing, the doctor told me to mention it to the consultant when I see him next week. My blood results have come back and I’m slightly anaemic, so I’ve started taking iron tablets, just one a day at the moment.

On Monday I was meant to have a nice day out with the girls for a little shopping trip but got less than a mile down the road before the car had to pull over as I was about to pass out. I think it’s all connected to the breathlessness and racing heart rate. My BP is absolutely fine so I’ve just been told to take it easy and rest.

Lastly my pelvis is holding up at the moment, it is getting more painful as the baby is getting bigger and putting more pressure on it but the painkillers and the crutches are enabling me to get around the house and on short trips OK.

    Not long to go now. I went shopping on the day I went into hospital because waters were leaking. That was at 39 weeks.

    Nice bump. Exciting that there’s not much left, but everything with the house seems to be on tract.

    Aww what a lovely update, you have such a lovely bump! I hope that you feel better soon, it’s difficult towards the end, and for me at least everything just seemed like as massive effort!

      Thank you, it is all a massive effort at the moment but will be so worth it in the end ๐Ÿ™‚

    You look great! I understand how you feel about your shopping trip! I tried to go places and some days once im dressed it is too much for me (due to illness- not pregnancy) and i just cant do it! Other days are better!

      Thank you, I think I just need to take it at a slower pace in the morning. Who’d have thought the simple things like showering and getting dressed are so exhausting. It was the same after my back Op’s, just wanted to go straight back to bed again!

    I used to feel so breathless and dizzy when I was this pregnant. I just think some people manage with the extra pressure on their bodies, while others don’t. Definitely take it easy, because feeling a bit iffy when pregnant is the worst. By the end I remember the movements changed from lovely little pokes to full limbs moving across my stomach lol. I used to love it ๐Ÿ™‚ x

      I love feeling her move but they definitely aren’t little pokes anymore. Sometimes I actually yell ouch as some part of her goes into my ribs. At least it’s reassuring that she’s OK though. x

    aww what a lovely post. I am glad you’re getting the house sorted. I used to love going sitting in the nursery. Hope the breathlessness stops soon. That sounds rubbish #MaternityMondays

    I’ve been getting the braxton hicks as well. I was told to just drink water as they’re worse when dehydrated, but it’s not working ๐Ÿ™ I wish we were as prepared as you – I have got Christmas done and dusted, but as for decorating the nursery or buying for baby, we’ve done nothing!

      Wow 33 weeks, that must have been scary. I’ll be happy to get Christmas out of the way so I can enjoy it with the boys. Then she’s more than welcome to make an appearance

    Oh how exciting! Your bump is so neat. I loved being pregnant – I am so blessed that i have ‘done it’ four times! I suffered terrible heartburn with Pickle. Kaz x

      4 times, you deserve a medal for that. Thanks for the neat bump comment I was worried it was larger than it should be!

    I remember the last month. It’s a bit uncomfortable at times isn’t it? I had bad indigestion and couldn’t eat much as the baby would kick and I’d throw up! It’s worth it in the end though ๐Ÿ™‚

      I know what you mean by the eating. It gets so uncomfortable and it hurts to eat more even though I’m still hungry. Little and often seems to be the best way.

    Aww, what a lovely bump. My son is 2 and I still miss having a baby bump. Glad you are doing OK and that things at home are coming together nicely for you. I was told I had a good sized baby and he was 8lb4..not that big but definitely not that small either!xx #Maternitymondays

      My first was 8.4 and second 7.7, although he was 3 weeks early. Hoping for an average sized baby and not a 10lbs fingers crossed x

      Thank you, I’ve enjoyed this pregnancy much more than the last 2 even though it’s been a bit more difficult. Perhaps it because I know this will definitely be the last x
