32 weeks {babybrink#2}


Size of baby: a large jicama. No, I have no idea what that is. And yes, I was too lazy to google a jicama :) They also say I should be gaining a pound a week (half of that pound going towards the baby) but hey! I was already gaining that before, ha ha! One thing I do know for sure is that there is no mistaking the fact that I'm pregnant. I'm feeling so BIG these days!

Movement: his movements are so explosive and allllll over the place! I don't remember seeing my belly move with Mia the way it does with this one. I'm guessing it's because Mia was mostly head down so a lot of her movement was real low, or really up in my ribs. This little guy is all over the place!

Cravings: nothing specific. My sweet tooth is still out of control, but I don't think that's any different than when I'm not pregnant ;)

Miss anything: being able to cuddle Mia comfortably. The bump is officially large and in charge and tends to get in the way. Sometimes we don't notice it, other times it gets frustrating for Mia, and a lot of the times it gets frustrating for me because I can't hold Mia the way she wants or needs me to because it causes me some pain. I just keep reminding myself that this bump will only be around for a short while longer... then I get to snuggle both my babies more comfortably :)

Random: I am officially done running. I will still be (attempting) speed walking but it's definitely not worth the pain anymore to keep trying to run. I wasn't able to run past 16 weeks with Mia so it still blows my mind that I made it to 30+ weeks with this pregnancy! I'll keep spinning, walking and I'd like to start doing the elliptical and try a water aerobics class! In reality, I wish I could just sit around and eat ice cream for the next 2 months, ha ha! But I know that exercise helps with labor and recovery so I'll keep on keepin' on!

Best moment of the week: one night during our bedtime routine with Mia, Eric gave me a kiss, kissed Mia goodnight, then gave my belly a kiss and told baby brother good night. As he was walking out of her room, Mia called him back and told him to "tiss baby brudder" while patting her belly. He tried telling her that he already kissed baby brother in my belly but she wouldn't let him leave without kissing her belly and telling baby brother goodnight, ha ha!

You look amazing girl! Can't believe how close you are! I still remember when you told me your pregnant and now you're only a few more weeks away! And seriously can't believe you were still running up until recently, you go girl!

My goodness - you seriously look gorgeous! I can't believe you were running until recently! I love that you make fitness a priority, even when all you want to do is eat ice cream for two months. ;) How about I do that for you? Hehe...

You look so good and girl pregnancy does amazing things to your hair!! Haha! I am starting to feel a little cramped when snuggling with Scarlett too, it kind of sucks but you're right these bellies will only be here for so long... then they'll be squishy and a whole other challenge! I love the story about Mia wanting daddy to kiss baby brother in her belly, she's so sweet :)

You look awesome, girlfriend!! And good for you on the exercising! It's a struggle for me to stick to a routine while NOT growing a baby- hehe! :) Love your Mia stories, always.

Sarah said...

Aww, you look great! And good for you to keep working out! I figured, these are the only 9 months that I have a semi excuse not to work out, so I fully took advantage of that, haha ;)
