32 Week Bumpdate

40 minus 32  = 8. 
8 weeks to go.... so beyond excited!!!

 

Size of baby:  4 or 4.5 pounds. He is growing and putting on the weight... so is mama :)

Symptoms: Upper back and lower back pain. Ouchy! Carrying this extra weight in the front is starting to wear on me. Thanks to my husbands nightly back massages I think we will make it through just fine!

Cravings: Honestly, I feel like in the beginning I craved EVERYTHING! Now I just want lots of small meals feeling hungry almost every 1-2 hours. Goodness gracious...


Something you Miss: Nothing! This week I am just so anxious and have been praying a lot for patience!
{just love this photo of our jude!}

Milestones: Finishing the nursery! Starting our hospital bag packing list/packing. Creating a birth plan and list of important people to call when I go into labor. Lots of prep stuff!! Also we have had 2 of our 6 birthing classes and have learned SO much. I feel much more prepared for whats to come and that is a really exciting thing!

Looking Forward To: Showers coming up in February & March. Can't wait to see all the lovely ladies in my life and get some valuable advice!!

Prayer for our baby this week:

Dear Lord, As Jude continues to gain weight and grow we pray for his strength! It is not to early to pray for his little life and what he will be like when he officially enters the world - you know the plans you have for him! Help him to continue to grow strong in these last few weeks in the womb. With all the preparations, books we are reading and time we are spending together please help Josh and I to trust you in this new season of parenthood. I pray for my labor and whenever that is - that your JOY would be my strength!! Thank you that you know exactly what that will look like and you will keep Jude safe and healthy. We love you and thank you again for this blessing! Amen.
