32 Weeks

Ok, it's starting to feel real. Like it's all really happening. We're 1 week+ into the single digit week countdown. As I've said to my SIL's Laura & Jess many times this pregnancy, it's almost like people don't take you "seriously" until you're 30+ weeks. "How pregnant are you?" "I'm 24 weeks!" "Oooooh. So a long ways to go then, hey?" I used to get that a lot, maybe it's just me. But when I've found when you say 30+ weeks...they get more excited as there's ~10 weeks until baby comes, and you're "really" pregnant. I also have a feeling that if I was still working, I miiiiight start getting some sympathy from my colleagues and patients, but just maybe! ;)
32 Weeks
When I go get my maternity pictures done, I will also be picking up my car seat from Ben and Jess. How is Abigail almost 5 months old? She was just born yesterday, I swear! This will be my last trip up to see my family before the baby is born, unless Jay wants to/is able to come with me sometime in October, depending on harvest. I would be too scared to travel by myself in case anything should happen!

Generally, I'm actually starting to feel better. I'm so tired at night...I fall asleep right away. 10:30-11PM until 5AM I'm out, get up for a pee break and then I go back to sleep until Braden gets up around 7:30ish. It's working really good and I feel rested in the mornings.
32 Weeks
I want everything ready to go for 35 weeks. If for some reason this baby comes early (which I'm praying does not happen) then a 35 weeker or more has a very good chance of being discharged from the hospital home. I emailed my carpenter again, and he says he'll be here dropping things off this afternoon...so hopefully he gets started soon. He assures me once he does get started, he will be fast...please pray for us! Type A Mommy wants to ORGANIZE! I did politely remind him that the countdown is now 8 weeks. Yup, you heard it here first...8 weeks!
32 Weeks
Decided to whip out the belly. I'm very surprised on one hand that I didn't get stretch marks (?yet?), though I didn't last time. When I was 18 weeks I swear I could see the beginnings of them, but so far so good. Man, I actually got quite tanned for me this summer, my belly is WHITE! I think I'm about the same size, maybe even smaller than last time. No linea nigra yet...I think mine came around 34 weeks last time. Also, it took everything in me I forgot to PhotoShop out my back fat/rolls from the side picture. There. I said it and I pointed it out! ;) I hate those back fat/flank rolls! But, it's real, it's life....it's making life!
32 Weeks, Braden

Also? All these pics were taken with my new Canon T3i that I bought at the beginning of this week! Plus I used my tripod and my remote - I'm so excited to learn more. Lighting in this room really sucks...but it is what it is! I'm very excited next week, I have lots of appointments: prenatal, chiropractic, massage (mobile massage - she's coming to my HOUSE!!!), and a hair cut/color before a friend's wedding on the weekend!

  6. You're adorable! And so stylish. By that point in my pregnancy, I was in nothing but stretched out Ts, maternity jeans and Uggs. Here's to hoping the baby doesn't come early either.

    1. Oh believe me, I'm only "stylish" for pictures...I live in jersey skirts and tanks if it's warm enough and yoga pants and t-shirts if it's cooler!

  7. Back rolls... Pffft! Had to reeeally look hard to find it!
    Shouldn't you have 6 prenatal appointments? Cuz you go weekly at 36 weeks.
    Looking great!

    1. Haha....trust me, they're there. I know I'm not "fat and rolly" it's just a really weird place to gain weight and I totally noticed it last time, especially taking bare belly maternity pics.

      You're probably right about the appts...they just keep pushing mine back so I think they'll forget at least one more! ;)
