bump & baby update: 32 weeks

When I searched back through my posts to see when I last put up a bump picture, I had no idea it had been 4 weeks. I can't say it enough, time is going by way too quickly! I had a doctor's appointment last Wednesday. I seem to be having quite the uneventful pregnancy and I'm completely ok with that. I'm measuring right on target, my blood pressure is fine, my weight gain is normal, and Q's heartbeat is strong and consistent. 

29 weeks

30 weeks 

31 weeks

32 weeks

I felt like I was growing before but holy cow! Look at the difference between 31 and 32 weeks. I can only imagine how popped out I'll be at the very end. 

Even though he's losing more and more room in my belly, Q's activity has seemed to increase tenfold. He gets the hiccups at least once a day and I can now see the rolling ripples across my stomach as he shifts from one side to the other. I'm still not the biggest fan of all the gut punches but I've gotten used to it. 

One morning I hadn't felt him move yet and panic began to set in. I was downing orange juice and eating chocolate at 11am to try and get him to wiggle around for me. Luckily right as I sent the freak out text to the hubs, Q gave me a kick. I remind myself to take nothing for granted. Even an uncomfortable moment is a good thing.
