Happy happy 32 weeks to us monkey!!! T-minus 8 weeks until you’re here, OMG! 😀
How did we get here so fast?! Wasn’t it just yesterday that Daddy and I embarked on a wonderful vacation to Costa Rica to do some healing and enjoy each other’s company and get away from reality? Wasn’t it just yesterday that I saw those two pink little lines and then promptly tested again and realized that I had the most precious souvenir from Costa Rica that I could ever ask for? Le sigh. It was just yesterday. I can’t believe we are nearing the end…
Here’s what you look like from the outside this week!
Symptoms: Fetal movement (pow pow and lots of tickles!), fetal hiccups, tight tingly breasts, transforming belly button, braxton hicks (lots!), furry tummy, congestion, insomnia, sciatica, fatigue, slight edema in hands, bendy joints, shortness of breath, vivid dreams
Weight Gain: 19lbs
Here’s what babycenter.com has to say about your development this week:
By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You’re gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, she’ll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb. She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.
32 weeks, 32 weeks, 32 weeks! We are so pregnant haha! I love you my sweet sweet girl! Happy baking for 8 more weeks… Pssst, please don’t come early okay? I love you!!
