32 Weeks

Which means eight weeks to go! We have had a big baby week what with the first baby shower and everything. To say we are in full baby mode around here would be the understatement of the year...

So our sweet little baby C is still growing away! Apparently he/she is coming in between 17 and 19 inches long (depending on the website I read) and weighs between 3.75 and 4 pounds. The baby is fattening up, practicing his or her breathing and blinking skillz and basically getting ready to be born! All my resources do agree that things are starting to get pretty crowded in there, so movements may decrease a little from this point, but everything seems the same for now.

As for me, I am still trucking along and doing great! I just read that apparently it is because the baby is moving down some that I am having problems with some of my maternity shirts. They fit me in most places, but they aren't LONG enough. They get stuck on the belly and don't come all the way down to my pants. Annoying really. I had assumed it was because I was so tall, but apparently this is a common problem for everyone right around now. Good to know I am not alone. Besides the growing-out-of-MATERNITY-CLOTHES issue, I am really doing great! I have the nesting thing going on, so I am sorta feeling productive. I am still sleeping pretty good, eating a ton, swelling a little (and sometimes a lot), and basically just about normal for 32 weeks pregnant! Now belly pics...I don't look as large as I do in the shower pictures. That dress somehow really showed off this belly. Still, here we are at 32 weeks...

Shirt down.

Shirt up!


  1. Wow does the belly touch the shelf yet? You look great.

  2. Happy Easter to you, Nick, and the little one.
