Week 32 Pregnancy Update- Large Jicama

21 Dec

Week 32 came and fly by super fast.  It was a pretty uneventful week, but in my book that is always a great week of pregnancy!  On a side note, cutting up a jicama into matchsticks and putting them into fajitas is my favorite thing to do with jicama!  Smile

How Big is Baby?

Baby, fetus at 32 weeks - BabyCenter

According to,

By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds (pick up a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You’re gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, she’ll gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next 7 weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb. She now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). Her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up in preparation for birth.

According to,

Your baby sleeps approximately 90 to 95 percent of the day now. His skin has become thicker and he continues to become more of a pinkish color. Your baby’s movements will peak this week. From now on they will change in quantity and quality. Most of the wrinkles are disappearing from your baby’s face, and there may be a lot of hair on his head. The weight gain has been fairly incredible recently. Your baby is now almost 4 pounds and is 17 inches long.

How I’m Feeling Physically

Physically I’m doing great.  I think the biggest thing I noticed that happened in week 32 was my baby bump grew a lot.  I mean a ton!  I’ve been making it into the gym five days a weeks still, trying to get in my 3 weekly prenatal sessions and also trying to go on five dog walks a week.  This is keeping me busy and my body is good shape.  Not to mention my stress levels low because of all the endorphins!  Smile

I have been getting really exhausted around noon every day.  I could probably curl up in bed and take a two hour nap if I had the time!  Other then feeling exhausted by noon, I have started noticing a sharp shooting pain that runs down my stomach randomly during the day.  It is pretty intense and I usually hunch over immediately for a few seconds until it passes.  I will ask my doctor what it is at my next appointment, but when I looked it up online, it didn’t seem to be anything too random.

How I’m Feeling Emotionally

Excited!!!  I.  Can’t.  Wait.  To.  Meet.  Cameryn. 

I’m in a huge nesting phase and am trying to keep getting things done around the house.  I’m trying to tackle my desk mess before company gets into town starting tomorrow as I type this.  I also cleaned out our pantry and the fridge/freezer in the kitchen.  Since getting the bedroom furniture, I’ve also washed all her clothes from newborn to 3 months and have filled her drawers with all her clean things!  Keith and I decided to shop and order the rest of the baby’s items in the beginning of January and I think we’ll also install her bookshelves and curtains at that time too.  Once her room is complete I know I will feel like a million bucks!

It is really nice to have Christmas to distract me from pregnancy and I can’t wait until company gets into town so I don’t spend my next week day dreaming about the baby 24/7!  Smile
