8 months!! (32 weeks)

Friday, May 04, 2012

my pregnancy is flying by.  i can’t believe i only have 8 more weeks to go! it is SUPER exciting!  i am starting to get a little nervous about having everything ready for this little one in time.  it actually is starting to make me feel scatter brained & all over the place, i guess the best thing to do is to take one task at a time.  i am SO anxious to meet this little ducky. i can’t wait to hold him, kiss him, hug him and just stare at him!! 

we went this morning for our 32 week check-up at the doctors & everything is perfect!

{just the tip of my shoes are still visible}

how far along? 32 weeks
maternity clothes?  nothing, yay me!!
sleep?   not that bad. only have to get up during the night to go and pee (even if it only feels like a tablespoon full).  wayne’s snoring also keeps me up but it’s better now that he drinks half a hayfever tablet a night.
best moment this week?  feeling this little boy kicking around like CRAZY! on wednesday he had a quiet day, so when he starting kicking & moving around that evening – we were so happy (we were worried there for a bit).
miss anything?  nothing really.  
movement?  all the time!!  he is laying head down now, curled up on his side with his back on my right side.  i think this is his favourite position at the moment, because then he can give his mommy a good old kick in her ribs.
food cravings?  frozen yoghurt with fruit
anything making you queasy or sick? nothing for this week.  
ducky's size?  42cm from head to heel.
ducky's weight?  1.7kg (same as a fresh coconut)
size of bump?  32cm
interesting facts about ducky?  ♥ ducky now gaining layers of fat & this makes his skin soft & smooth.  ♥ his skin will become pinker now & less transparent. ♥ may have hair.  ♥ ducky is gaining weight fast & will double it from now until his birth.  ♥ fingernails & toenails now fully formed. 
what Ducky is currently doing?  ♥  he is busy blinking, looking around, grabbing things, making faces, practicing his breathing, peeing & listening to everything around him.  (kind of what he will be doing for the first 3 months of his life). 
labour signs?  nope
belly button in or out?  in
wedding rings or or off? on
happy or moody? super happy and excited to meet this little man!
looking forward to? the long weekend! (bank holiday on Monday). 
what mommy is feeling?  ♥ i’m suppose to start getting Braxton Hicks contractions – to prepare my body for what’s going to happen.  luckily not had any of those. ♥ i’ve been told that it’s a good idea to start packing the hospital bag.  yikes! ♥ suppose to get a lot of heartburn & shortness of breath.  i only get heartburn if i eat oranges & if i’m hungry but other than that i don’t get it often.  shortness of breath i get when i climb the steps out of the tube stations.  ♥ from now on our check-up appointments are every 2 weeks.  ♥ leg cramps at night is common.  i do get those but mostly when my feet are cold.  ♥ i am VERY lucky! i actually feel GREAT! i am getting more tired but it’s not that bad.  i just can’t believe that in about 8 weeks i will have a wriggling little mister in my arms! Smile

for everyone in the UK – have a great long weekend! (with rain).

for everyone in SA & everywhere else – have a great weekend!!
