Weekly Blooms – 32 Weeks Bump Update
Happy Friday! This week has been a long one for us. Anyone else just have one of those weeks?! We all came down with the junk that is going around, my husband was out of town, and we just couldn’t get our sh** together to be honest. But it’s Friday and we are looking forward to a weekend of getting some rest and working on a few projects around the house. I am back with another pregnancy update today!
How far along: 32 weeks
Due Date: March 23, 2018 (our middle kiddos birthday!)
Gender: Baby Girl! Guys, we really can not believe it. We truly decided on trying for a third because we wanted to add another miracle to our family, and of course it would be an added bonus if the little miracle wore pink and sparkles ;). As many of you know we have two boys (4 1/2, and almost 3). When we found out we were having a girl it took us a solid month to really believe it, and to be honest I will probably be checking her for little boy parts when she comes out!
Name: Yes, but we won’t be sharing with anyone until baby arrives! Pink lady sparkles is what the boys are feeling lately!
Weight Gain: 21 lbs. I have officially surpassed my maximum weight gain with my two previous pregnancies (gained exactly 20 pounds with each pregnancy), and still have two months to go! I am telling myself it’s because of the baby being a girl and my third babe, right?!
Feeling: This week has been the worst I have felt all pregnancy, I think most of it had to do with this cold that we all caught! But hey, I am lucky I made it this far feeling so good with everything we have had going on. I definitely have been pushing it between the move, boys, and trying to do projects around the house. I really am going to make an effort to take sometime for myself these next few weeks.
Movement: Lots! No matter how uncomfortable I am, I will always miss those kicks, hiccups, and movements.
Cravings: I have been sooo thirsty these past few weeks, and orange juice has really been the only thing to quench my thirst! I have been taking down veggie sausages with sauerkraut and mustard like it is my job. This one came out of the blue, but has been a real true craving. Like give me a sausage with sauerkraut now!
Nursery Update: Last week, I shared the progress we have made in the nursery (here). It pretty much has sat the past week because we have been either too sick or too busy. I am hoping the wallpaper comes today so we can get that up this weekend! And then we can start hanging the decor, which is always the best part!
Pregnancy Items I am loving: Comfy cozy over here! We finally exchanged Christmas presents with the rest of my family, and oh my I got the most comfortable pants and pajama tops from my mom (shop below). All of these are in my pre-pregnancy size and fit the bump great. I plan to bring this plaid top, and black joggers to the hospital with me for after baby is born. And of course I have yet to take these slippers off my feet when I am inside.
Favorite Newborn Purchases: It has been so fun to finally be shopping in the girls department! I grabbed a few zip-up onesies from Old Navy this week that are my favorite for the newborn days. The boys lived in these those first few months. She will definitely be wearing her share of hand me down baseball and dinosaur onesies but a girl has to have a few pink outfits right?! I also grabbed these adorable towels and a few bows!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and have escaped all this crud that has been going around! Thanks so much for stopping by!
