Hump Day || Bump Day - 32 Weeks

For the record, I hate this picture but it'll have to do.

How far along: 32 weeks!

Baby's size: Squash!

Baby's progress: Baby girl is a little over 3 pounds and about 16 inches long. I can tell sister is growing up a storm because there is definitely less room for her to squirm around! Also-she's head down already. YIKES!! She's almost ready to make her entrance!

Weight gain: 20 pounds. Not mad about it one bit. Perhaps this is the Fruit Loops, bagels and cheese talking, but I can honestly say I have thoroughly enjoyed gaining these 20 pounds!

Stretch marks: None in my stomach, hips or thighs, but still a small one on my boob. I knew these things were growing out of control...

Sleep: Sleep is good when it's good. The restless legs have subsided (hopefully) but I've noticed when I wake up to go to the bathroom all 18 times in the middle of the night, it's getting harder and harder to roll out of bed. And I literally mean rollllllll outta bed...

Gender: Girl. Duh.

Movement: Yes-all the time! Either her butt/back is pushed up against my belly button or her foot is poking out of my right side. It's crazy! 

Best moment this week: Paisley's crib bedding being delivered!!!!! I have literally waited almost 12 weeks for it to come in because it was off in Never Neverland being designed so when I opened the box and put it all in her crib, I wanted to cry. It's just so pretty and all I can do is imagine a sweet little girl snoozing away in there!

Also-totally not related to my pregnancy, but this weekend I'm helping host a gender reveal party for one of my absolute best friends, Ashley, and I got to find out the gender on Sunday! Needless to say, I am SO excited for her to find out what she's having!!! I feel like knowing the gender of someone else's baby when no one else knows is probably the coolest thing ever!

Looking forward to: Seeing all of our friends this weekend at Ashley's gender reveal party!! Also, making more progress in the nursery and attending our first birthing class this Sunday. (Beau is just thrilled about it...lemme tell ya!) ;)

Something else I'm looking forward to is Katie finding out the gender of her little one today!!! I just remember all the excitement that comes with finally knowing whether it's a boy or girl and my heart is happy knowing that she will soon know whether Baby K is a mini athlete, like her husband, or sassy as hell, just like she is. ;)

Food cravings: Watermelon, still. Really...any juicy fruit...pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberries, etc. And chocolate. You could not have paid me to eat chocolate the first half of my pregnancy but I swear it's all I can think about these days!

Weirdest food I ate this week: I'm ashamed. But it was so worth it. Are you ready for this...Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Pop Tarts. There. I said it...

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope

Labor signs: Negatory

Symptoms: The restless legs have subsided (thank GOD because I was getting ready to saw both of my legs off had this lasted much longer) and I believe my SI pain is on its way out, too. The only symptom, really, is pubic symphisis and dang, does it hurt! If I sit too long it hurts. If I stand too long it hurts. What gives?!

Workouts: I got in a great workout last night and it felt a.maz.ing. I did a little bike action with some arm weights and left feeling like a million bucks. Thanks to the pain in my pelvis/pubic region, I think it's safe to say most leg workouts (squats, lunges) are out of the picture for a while...but tricep dips are totally my thing. As awkward as it is trying to dip this big ol' belly between my legs, they hurt SO good!

What I miss: Having a waistline. Just throwing that out there. I miss having a figure...but soon enough, I'll have my figure back and a little baby in my arms so I'll be patient and wait this one out! ;)

Things that suck: Just feeling achy all over at times. I think I've said this before but it's just so weird to not feel "normal".

Things that don't suck: Being pregnant with yet another best friend!! (Yes...that makes 6 friends and 1 cousin, so far...and there's still one more!) ;) I've been wanting to shout it from the rooftops for weeks now so I'm so glad the cat is out of the bag that one of my other best girlfriends, Brooke, is pregnant with baby #2! I had so much fun snagging these sweet shots of their little growing family this past weekend!

Is Jude not the most precious little boy EVER??!! I want to steal him. 

And just like that, I'm 8 months pregnant. EIGHT MONTHS. What in the WHAT?!!


  1. Love that dress on you! Can't wait to see the rest of baby girl's nursery! That preview is adorable!

  2. Wow she is really growing!! Looking forward to seeing her nursery.

  3. All these bloggers being pregnant makes my baby fever spike even more. P.S. I fully intend on having a boy my first time around and I've had the name Beau picked out for what seems like forever. Your Beau should feel honored ;)

  4. You popped! I want to see this nursery!

  5. You look beautiful!! I hope I look like you when I'm pregnant one day!! Also, dying to see the nursery!! :)

  6. I totally had a pop tart moment this week too! And also opted for the brown sugar and cinnamon flavor!! You look so great! Can't believe you are 8 months already!

  7. You look beautiful and are ALL belly! Love that you are still getting a workout in when/how you can. Can't wait for the nursery reveal.

  8. I can almost hear THE FINAL COUNTDOWNNNNN song playing. :D

  9. I know you hate the picture but, you really do look great!! & You do have a figure... A baby bump figure! :) Also, someone mentioned Smore's pop tarts the other day... haven't had or even thought of those in years. Now, it sounds good! AHH!

  10. I can't believe you are already 8 months! It feels like you were just announcing all of this!!
