Bump Update - 32 Weeks
This week baby boy is now around 42cm long and gaining weight fast. His lungs wont fully develop until just before birth but baby's born now have a very good chance of survival. He may also have a full head of hair by now... I guess we will see :)
I've noticed a couple more stretch marks this weeks, mostly on my lower belly near my belly button.
I'm finding it hard to sleep again and regularly wake up around 2/3/4am. Once I wake I tend to find it quite hard to go to sleep and stay asleep and I'm sometimes wide awake around 6am in the morning. I have started napping this week though as Paige has suddenly started napping again. I normally only manage an hour or even half an hour but just laying in bed and resting helps.
I can defiantly tell that my uterus has grown this week. It feels a lot higher up and sitting upright is getting uncomfortable. Baby boy still feels pretty low compared to what Paige did.
I've had slightly less heartburn too which is nice but this seems to vary on a daily basis. When I do get it, it's mostly right before bed or during the night.
My skin has broken out a little this week too. I'm still getting a ton of Braxton hicks and baby boy is still wiggling up a storm. I have noticed that he does tend to have a day or two a week when he will be really quiet and hardly move. He is still also getting hiccups 2/3 times a day.
I think we have sorted out our pram situation. We are going to buy a new car seat that fits onto two of our pram chassis we already have. We will then get a buggy board for Paige to stand on. I'm a little nervous at the fact we won't have a double and I'm not sure how I'll cope when I'm on my own with them both but we can always buy one after baby boy arrives if I find it too difficult.
Don't forget to check out Paige's 32 week update and last weeks 31 week update.
