32 Weeks Pregnant {Baby Number 3}

Sunday, 26 November 2017

My goodness do I feel reaaaally pregnant now! The weeks are absolutely flying by too, and it really feels as if I'm going to blink and my due date will be here. Talking of due dates, for some reason I just have a feeling I'm going to make it there this time, and maybe even beyond too. But who knows!

HOW FAR ALONG?
32 weeks & 5 days

DUE DATE?
14th January 2018

GENDER?
Girl!

HOW’S BABY DOING?
I use the Baby Centre App to check on baby's progress - baby girl now weighs roughly 1.7kg and is as long as a kale leaf at around 42.4cm long. Her finger and toenails are now full formed, and if she has an itch she may even scratch it (cute!). By this stage most babies are head down, but who knows with this little lady. She is always on the move.


WEIGHT CHANGE?
I actually stepped on the scales last week, as I was really interested to see how much weight I've put on. I've put on 4.6kg which is about 10lbs, which I'm actually really happy about. I don't know whether it's too much or too little, but it sounds okay to me!

SYMPTOMS?
Lots of hiccups and braxton hicks this last week, and all the baby wriggles too. My ribs are still in a lot of pain most of the time - although I'm unsure if this is from a foot, bum or head! 

SLEEP?
I've had a another rubbish cold recently, so while that's been at it's worst sleep has been awful! When my cough hasn't been keeping me awake though, I've been sleeping like a dream. I did get woken the other morning by baby girl though. She was pushing into my side so much it was pushing me up!

CRAVINGS?
Nothing of note this week!

HOW I’M FEELING?
My goodness am I well and truly at the waddling stage now! I'm slow, putting on my shoes is difficult and once I'm on the floor I'd rather just stay there... How I'm going to cope with another 8 week I'm not sure.

MISS ANYTHING?
Being able to wear normal clothes! My coat doesn't fit so I'm extra chilly when out and about, and I've still not found decent pjs that don't cost the earth!

FAVOURITE RECENT OUTFIT?
I feel as if I'm repeating the same few maternity t-shirts at the moment. I've got a few new bits on order to collect this week though, so fingers crossed I fall back in love with clothes again!

BEST MOMENT THIS FORTNIGHT?
Getting the last bits ready for bump and thinking about organising / building / preparing! I'm planning on washing the baby clothes in the next few weeks, and I've made a start of my 'hospital bag' bits too... eek!

LOOKING FORWARD TO?
It's our biggest girl's birthday on Sunday, so I am SO excited to celebrate her this weekend. I've then got another midwife appointment on Monday, so I'm really excited to hear how baby girl is doing. Fingers crossed she's head down still!

You can see how this pregnancy compares to Parker's (my second) here.
