HOW FAR ALONG ARE YOU? 32 weeks today. It’s getting real y’all!
GENERALLY FEELING: EXHAUSTED. Granted we did just get back from a whirlwind weekend in Dallas, but I just wear out so much more easily now. A girlfriend of mine said it best the other day – being pregnant with a toddler isn’t the same as just being pregnant. A whole new world!
SHOWING? What you see in the above photo is my current view…so yes. Showing. Quite a bit 🙂
CRAVINGS? Honestly I didn’t eat very well this past weekend, so I’m craving lots of veggies right now. And reasonable portions. Are we sure I’m pregnant?!
WEIGHT GAIN: Not tracking it, but my doctor has said I’m completely in the normal range and doing well!
FEARS: I’m starting to worry about the logistics of having two kids, especially at the beginning. Whether I’m able to have a VBAC or not there will still be a decent chunk of time that I have to physically heal, and I’m worried that I may not have my stuff together. I suppose no one ever really knows what all could happen, but simple things like going to the bathroom and showering (which, let’s be real, I struggle with anyway) are going to become super difficult for a while!
LOOKING FORWARD TO: I can’t wait to hear his first cries and see his sweet face. It’s just getting so real for us now!
WHAT I’VE BEEN LOVING: Our little bug is a moving, kicking, punching machine. While I’m not a huge fan of getting punched in the bladder so frequently, if it means he’s healthy and active then I’ll take it!
SLEEP: Ugh. Sleep has been hard lately for the sole fact that I can’t get comfortable in any position. I’m usually a stomach sleeper, which isn’t possible right now, but sleeping on my back sounds soooo nice. Too bad it’s not an option right now!
MATERNITY CLOTHES: I’m finally starting to realize that I may not be pregnant forever and that no, I don’t need to buy more maternity clothes. It’s time to focus on things like nursing bras and hospital bags and postpartum underwear (that phrase should bring in some fun searches!) – so strange! It really does feel like yesterday that we found out we were even pregnant, and now he’s almost here. I can’t believe it!
