32 Week Baby Bump!

{Big ole beach ball}
How far along? As of today 32 weeks 3 days
Total weight gain: Not sure. I have a scale here at home but I haven't weighed myself lately. I have to say I'm quite pleased with my body this pregnancy. Not that I'm watching my weight of course but I haven't gotten the chunky upper arms and face that I got last pregnancy. Then's not over yet.
Maternity clothes? Yes some. I'm really running out of things to wear, even some of my maternity shirts are getting short and I'm not fitting into even more pants.
Stretch marks? No new ones this pregnancy. Confession. I don't lotion up my stomach every night. I probably only do it about 3 times a week. Yet I religiously lotion my arms and other stuff every night. Is it laziness about lifting up my top or nightgown? I have no idea.
Sleep: It's been pretty good except I do have to get up at least once to use the restroom. During the day it feels like I'm in the restroom all the time!
Best moment this week: It's been a great week. My body has felt pretty good and it's been an exciting week for me.--I totally re-used this from my last baby bump post.
Miss Anything? I'm starting to miss being able to wear whatever I want. I see such adorable outfits out on the blogosphere and all I can do is look at them wistfully.
Movement: Definitely!
Food cravings: Nope.
Food aversions: Ok I said I was going to be better about eating fruit. I didn't do so great this week. I maybe had a few grapes and half an apple. I have been drinking apple juice though. That counts right?
Boy or girl: Girl!
Labor Signs: No and I hope they stay away till 40 weeks.
Symptoms: I was getting a lot of strong braxton hicks contractions off and on last week but they have calmed down. Also I have this weird pain on the top of my foot that has been hurting for almost 2 weeks.
Belly Button in or out? Out I suppose.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Looking forward to: Hopefully seeing my baby via ultrasound at my doctors appt tomorrow. I have another confession. I missed my last appointment and it's been about a month since I last saw my OB. I haven't even taken my glucose test yet. I've been pretty busy and didn't want to tote both girls with me and it's not so easy to have my mom come and watch them whenever I want.

In other exciting news, we got a new car. H traded in his for something bigger. It's a 7-8 passenger crossover SUV. He came home with it on Saturday and I love it. I'll have easy access to two carseats and Serena will be able to access the third row easily. It's becoming more real that our family is growing!


  1. Oh this is so exciting!! You look ADORABLE! I am at 36 weeks and I wish my belly looked as cute as yours.

    1. I saw your previous bump pictures. You were adorable pregnant. :)

  2. You look great!! And I love that dress!

  3. You look so cute! I agree with you about wanting to wear cuter clothes too. At least there will be fun fall clothes and a bit cooler weather after the babies come!

  4. you look amazing!! I'm running out of clothes to wear too and keep telling myself to do more laundry and stick it out with 2 months to go!

  5. your bump looks exactly like a basketball or balloon would, i love it, its like the perfect belly. so cute. & your super skinny everywhere else lucky!!

  6. Francis, you are gorgeous!! I hope I look half as good as you do at 32 weeks!! I totally know how you feel about toting the other two to a doctor's appointment, I avoid it as much as possible! Congrats on the new car!! How exciting! I was over the moon excited to get a mini van haha


    1. Thanks Whitney, I learned my lesson. I totally got scolded today by my OB for waiting so long to see her.

  7. You look amazing!!! Love the dress!!

  8. You look great!!!! Love that dress !

  9. ok seriously. you look awesome, I love how you are skinny everywhere and ALL baby! good to hear no new stretch marks! Gives me hope for my next pregnancy! and I know what you mean about even maternity shirts getting too short! I didn't realize mine were getting too short until I got a mosquito bite on the underside of my bump last week and my husband commented saying it's probably because my shirt didn't cover my bump all the way--- I can't believe he let me walk around like that! yikes!

  10. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who was conducting a little research on this.
    And he actually ordered me dinner simply because I discovered it for him.
