I’ll be 33 weeks along tomorrow, so it’s time to tell you all about week 32! It was a good one – yay!!
Another week with a deceiving photo – I swear I look more pregnant in person!
What’s Up With Baby
- According to What to Expect, baby is weighing almost four pounds!
- Baby is practicing all his skills – swallowing, breathing, kicking, and sucking! Preparing for skills he needs outside of the womb.
- More fat is accumulating under baby’s skin and he’s becoming less transparent and more opaque.
What’s Up With Mama
- NO CONSTIPATION!!!! Ever since I was told bananas are constipating (who knew?), I took them out of my diet and I’m CURED! Lol, seriously so amazing. I literally have taken zero stool softeners this week and have been able to use the bathroom daily – thank goodness.
- Baby continues to have his dance parties and I LOVE feeling his movements. Can’t wait to see what type of little personality he’s going to have!
- I have a midwife appointment today, so I’ll possibly come back and edit this post with details.
- Workouts have been really great lately… mostly in part that any type of back pain (ligament or sciatic) has been non-existent. Let’s hope that trend continues a bit longer!
Moments of the Week
- Taking Xander on an impromptu visit to the National Zoo.
- Washed and organized newborn/3 month baby clothing.
I don’t have any “deep thoughts” this week, which I consider a good sign that pregnancy #2 is moving along smoothly. This week I have been much more fascinated by X’s development and how it compares/contrasts to a newborn. It continually amazes me to see how much X understand and has his own opinions even though is speech is still developing. I hope his love of sign language helps Baby H2.0 pick it up even faster. It’s wonderful to have the ability to communicate with our toddler and just understand what he wants to do, eat, etc. I think it has also reduced his frustration with us as he can connect signs with actions, objections, etc. and helps him understand how things are connected (i.e. “I sign this when I want to eat.”) It’s crazy to think that in a few short weeks/months we’re going to have a communicating toddler and a newborn “blob.” I’m sure we’ll be quite busy trying to communicate between the two of them!
Hope you enjoyed the recap! If you have any questions for me or John along the way, please don’t hesitate to ask! <3
