We are now 32 weeks into this pregnancy and the we’re going to have an infant again mindset has started to kick in. I haven’t started pulling out all the newborn necessities yet, but it’s definitely been on my mind and I’m slowly starting to create a list of things we need to get together. Luckily, with this being our third baby, there’s really not much we need to buy other than diapers, lightweight sleepers, and a handful of new baby things that friends have recommended I try.
Right now this little guy is the size of a honeydew. He’s very active throughout the day and is sitting pretty low. He’s head down so I’m feeling the usual pelvic pressure, but luckily I haven’t been kicked in the ribs yet (such an uncomfortable feeling — something that is burned into my brain from it happening so often with my secondborn).
For the remainder of this pregnancy, most of my posts will be weekly updates and all-things newborn + postpartum prep. It’s about that time!
How Far Along: 32 weeks
Size of Baby: 17-18 inches, approximate weight is 4.2 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Anything that is comfortable – pretty much leggings only at this point. I also wear a nursing tank everyday and just throw a lightweight long sleeve or a cardigan over it.
Movement: this baby is a wild one – can’t really put my finger on a specific time of day because it’s pretty consistent.
Sleep: This week has been great. I’ve been up maybe once to go to the bathroom, but other than that, I’m sleeping. Last week was an insomnia week (was up from 1-3:30 most nights) so I’m super grateful that this week has been good to me.
Cravings: Cookies. I knew I shouldn’t have bought my kids the variety pack from Costco.
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks every now and then but nothing like my other 2 pregnancies at this time.
To Do List: I need to decide on a new DockATot cover! We had the white one for Drake and Ford so we’re due for a new one. I love all 4 of these prints.

Best Moment of the Week: SUNSHINE! It’s finally starting to get nicer here so we’ve been able to get outside more. Also… I just placed my first Instacart order this morning and am already sold on it. I know it’ll be a lifesaver once this little guy gets here but I’m gonna start using it now. 🙂
Looking Forward to: checking things off our “before baby gets here” to do list.
