32 Week Pregnancy Update

Why does saying that I only have 8 weeks left feel like I could have this baby at any second, but then when I say I have 2 months left, I want to cry because it feels like she is never ever coming. Time is weird. I wish it would stop altogether so that I could prepare more, spend more time enjoying my husband before our roles change forever, spend more time sleeping and more time having clean hair and a clean kitchen. I know this is all going to change drastically once my babe makes her appearance. And as frightening as all of that is, I also can't wait. Every day, her nursery gets more and more put together, she kicks and squirms and gets hiccups, I dream about her face, and her demeanor and if she will have hair. She's already so special to me.

So for the updates!!

How Far Along?

I'm 32 weeks exactly

How Am I Feeling?

Feeling great as always. I'm still sleeping through the night with no problems. I rarely have heartburn anymore. The only real issue is the pain in the back and under my belly when I'm on my feet for too long. But honestly, it's such a small issue, I can't even complain.

How Big Is Baby?

Baby weighs 3 3/4 pounds (about the size of a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in my belly. I'm gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to baby.


From Pre-pregnancy weight to today I think I've gained roughly 23 pounds. Not bad, not bad at all!

What Do I Miss?

I can't think of anything I miss really. Everything is so perfect right now, I honestly don't have anything to complain about. 


Just the round ligament pain and lower back pain. But it is only a real issue if I'm on my feet for more than a few hours. So it's not even that bad.


I was asked about cravings last night at my baby shower  about cravings and I had to think really hard. I actually haven't been craving too much, I'm just back to normal with being able to eat everything. My sensitivity to spicy things has completely gone away, and I can enjoy my chips and salsa in full force! I guess the only thing I could say I crave is easy meals. I am not a huge fan of cooking at the moment (hence why my food blog is suffering) , and I'm guessing my back pain is to blame for that. So we eat out a lot because I'm just too lazy to make something that takes more than like 3 minutes to make. Needless to say, we eat a lot of hot dogs, quesadillas, sandwiches and bowls of cereal. 

Highlights of the Week?

So many Highlights!! We were able to finish painting the nursery a few weeks ago and I'm just thrilled with how it turned out!!

The coloring here is a little darker than it is in real life, but I think it just looks lovely. She will have white furniture and other grey and dusty pink accents and in the end it will just be wonderful!

Last tuesday Alex had the day off, and we were going to go out and get some new dressers for the nursery. And as I was saying that out loud to Alex I realized how silly I sounded. Now, you should know that our bedroom is a mishmash of hand me downs and free items found on the side of the road. So I decided that a newborn baby was NOT going to have brand new furniture before I did. So instead of buying baby stuff, we went to American Furniture Warehouse and bought a whole brand new bedroom set! I finally feel like a grown up. The bedroom is beautiful and I couldn't be more excited with how everything turned out. My family also needs a shoutout, because since we were getting all new furniture, our bedroom was completely cleared out. I have always LOATHED the paint color in my master bedroom. The previous owners did not do a nice job and did an extremely strange tree mural on one of the walls. I just knew that while all the furniture was out we HAD to paint it. So my amazing family, came over and helped us paint the whole room in just a few hours! So now instead of being an ugly blue, and dark purple with random tree murals, it's a lovely soft blue that goes just beautifully with the dark wood of our new furniture!!

 Is that not the ugliest thing you have ever seen in your whole life? ugh. the trees are horrible and you can see a little bit of the dark dark purple that was on the other wall above the door.

This is the new color. fresh, clean and lovely.

The new furniture. It looks amazing!! And it looks even better now that the room is put back together. We have bedding and things on the walls and curtains are hung. I will do a full reveal of how it looks a little later, once everything gets situated. 

This is me at 30 weeks.

An extra highlight for the past little while would have to be Alex talking to my belly. Is there anything cuter than your baby daddy talking to his little one through your belly? I don't think so. Usually at night, while she is kicking up a storm he will put his hand on my belly and get up nice and close and say "Hi baby, this is your daddy. I love you so much. Be nice to your mom and don't kick too hard. We can't wait to meet you." And my heart melts into a big puddle and it just love it so much!!
