HERE I AM Today at 32 Weeks!
YOWZA I weigh a lot!

I've been SO LAZY and tired lately. I am thankful I am on bed rest because honestly, I don't feel like I can do much more than lay around, eat and shower LOL.  I'm even too exhausted to blog much-UGH!

Monday-I had a stabbing pain in the left side of my abdomen for several hours that would not go away. My doctor wanted to check it out so I went to L & D and got monitored.
DIAGNOSIS....Strained tummy muscle.  This can happen as your belly grows especially if you don't get around much-like me.

The good news is, my cervix is closed and thick, I was having ZERO contractions and Baby Girl looked FABULOUS on the monitor-glad my mind was put to ease. The pain is completely gone now.

Here I am at the hospital in one of my HOT gowns :)

The Saturday before, My hubby asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day and truly, I wanted a pedicure and Olive Garden.
He dropped me off at the door of the nail salon and this is what I got-LOVE MY TOES!
Then all 8 of us went to Olive Garden. I kept my tootsies up all the way there and back.

My Dr. appointment a couple weeks ago went well, my amniotic fluid was up from 12 to 15!

I have my next appointment on May 20. They will measure baby then and I will also have my next 24 hour urine that day.

God has granted me the grace of making it this far, I just pray I can keep her inside and she will keep  growing for several more weeks!

The crazy thing is...
I STILL CANNOT BELIEVE I AM PREGNANT and it's almost over...
It is such a surreal experience.


  1. You look great! Love the pedi too. Won't be long now and you will be holding your precious little sweetie-pie. Can't wait!

  2. I'm so glad you are doing well! I was starting to get worried since you haven't updated in a while! Just a couple more months--tell that little one to sit tight for a while longer!

  3. You're look'n good in your cute gown! Sorry you had to make a trip to L&D! But so glad everything is going so well!

  4. You look fantastic! I'm so happy that everything is moving along smoothly and little girl is doing so well. Happy belated Mother's Day!

  5. Wow!!! Glad to hear everything is going well, your little girl will be here so soon! Pretty piggies too :)

  6. Love the toes! You look so cute!!

  7. You are doing it! You've made it so far! Keep up the "good work." ;)

  8. Great looking toes! Glad baby is still growing and doing well.

  9. You're looking great! Enjoy your last couple of months with her growing in your belly - She'll be here before you know it! :)

  10. You look great ! You have got a set of cute toes my dear!! Rest rest rest!

  11. after a long time of trying to get/be pregnant, perhaps it's easy to not see how quickly these pregnant months can flit by -- and put you square into what it's all about: mommyhood.


  12. Don't worry about the weight - you'll be surprised how much you'll lose the first couple of weeks.

    What a nice Mother's Day you had - cute toes!

    Your last comment about the surreal-ness of the pregnancy, how you still can't believe you're preganant and it's almost over - rang true with me. I can't believe I WAS pregnant and it went by so fast! It's hard now to remember what it felt like. Enjoy these last few weeks and keep up the good work (the resting, that is)!
