Bump Watch 2008, 32 weeks, 3 days

My not-quite-weekly belly pic!
32 weeks, 3 days

Only 53 days left to go!

When we took my photo this morning, Brent asked if I could see a progression in my photos. I think so. Check out a sampling.
Belly progression

Feeling pretty good, although I'm starting to get a little uncomfortable, mainly while trying to sleep. I can't remember the last time I slept through the night, but before I was even pregnant I often woke up at least once to go to the bathroom. I'm now typically going at least three times a night. I told Brent, who rarely doesn't sleep through the night unless I'm snoring, that this is good practice for when we have to wake up frequently for feedings. I jokingly suggested that every time one of us wakes up in the middle of the night, we should make the other a sandwich. You know, to get into the habit of feeding someone. ::taps mic:: Is this thing on?

People keep saying that my pregnancy seems to have gone by quickly for them, as bystanders. For me it crept by until the 24th week or so. Now I'm amazed by how quickly it's going.

We still have a lot to do in preparation for the baby, but we've gotten quite a bit done, too. At my last check-up on Monday, the doctor said, "You should think about getting a car seat soon." Check. "And sign up for a maternity ward tour." Check. "And childbirth classes." Check. "Oh, wow. Ok, then you guys are ahead of the game." Score!

"Oh god, I hope you're not pregnant. We can't afford another kid. We already got Chris, Stewey, Richie, Joanie, Greg, Marsha, Bobby, Jan, Mike Seaver, Carol Seaver, Boner, Urkel, Mr. Furley..." - Peter Griffin, Family Guy

  4. It's so cool to see the change!!

    I agree it seemed fast, but then again, most readers didn't know until you were well into it.

  11. At 32 weeks, I enjoyed an awesome pregnancy massage. At 38 weeks, the same massage was considerably less enjoyable. Get another onenow, before it's too late!!!
