Preggo Status - 32 weeks

How far along?

Bubba's chunk-o-meter: 
Apprx. 16.5 inches / 42 cm, 3.7 lbs / 1.7 kg 

My total chunk-o-meter: 
15 lbs / 6.8 kg

Stretch marks? 
Not yet, my belly is itching like crazy though...

Belly button status? 
More out than before, can't stand it when Diver Dude touches it now - EWWWW!

Counting sheep? 
Had a few restless nights with crazy legs, peeing every hour and minor belly aches that had me worried about preterm labor. Probably shouldn't have popcorn and chocolate right before bed...

Foods I can't live without: 
Tomatoes and avocados. And why do Milky Bones suddenly seem so tempting? Pickles with ice cream?

Foods I can't stand: 
I wish there was some food I couldn't stand, put it in front of me and I'll eat it!

Best moments this month: 
Spending the holidays with my family.
Nephew feeling Bubba move and relating to Bubba as "Baby Max". 
Pregnancy photo shoot with Sister. 
Getting the baby room (close to) ready. 

Worst moments this month: 
Falling on an icy beach while taking pictures - saved both belly and camera but it scared the living crap out of me. 
Diver Dude having a moment of total freak-out when realizing Bubba will be here in two months. 

I'm feeling it and seeing it, and so are others! It's like an alien belly show every day :)

Braxton Hicks, shortness of breath, minor heart burn - nothing to complain about.

Yup, Bubba's a boy!

What I miss? 
Sushi, Sashimi, Sake, Sauvignon and Stilton.

What I'm looking forward to? 
Baby Shower Jan 22nd - I honestly never thought I'd have one, but a friend of mine insisted on throwing me one and I'm thrilled! 
Labor rehearsal on February 10th. 

Monthly Wisdom
If a girl needs to clean - stay out of her way!

Hmmm, making it this far still boggles my mind :)

Happy, calm, overwhelmed, amazed, worried and organized - all at the same time!


  1. Wow before you know it you'll be posting about sleepless night, feeds and dirty bums that need changing!! I can't believe how fast these past 32 weeks have gone, it seems like only yesterday that you were sharing your exciting news about being pregnant!

    ENJOY the baby shower and make sure you don't lift a finger!! LOL


  2. You look great! Be careful on the ice.

  3. Yikes watch out for the ice!! Bubba will be here before you know it!!

  4. That is the cutest baby belly I've seen in awhile! I'm so happy for you both! To realize all we've gotten to go through "together"... Sigh. Extra love to you all! xoxox

    Heather (

  5. All sounds perfect and you're still looking cute as ever!!

  6. You are SO CUTE, I just want to give ONE piece of advice and then I will shut up......Try not to scratch your belly, but some belly balm on it instead. Scratching will help the stretch marks so if you can resist you may get away with NO stretch marks :)

  7. oh CP, you look beautiful...amazing...and you sound like everything is just perfect. I'm so happy for that...that things are exactly as they should be.

    Gosh that belly is making me SMILE. :)

  8. You look so good!! 32 weeks!! Awesome, just awesome!

  9. I second the comment on how far you've come. It seems like just yesterday you announced your amazing news! I am still so happy for you.

  10. Loved hearing your update... and the photos... I might have to start doing that too ;-)

  11. You look so great! Wow - you're getting so close. It cracks me up that Diver Dude had a freakout moment - I think this is common for a lot of dads... And you cleaning - love this!

  12. Wooohooo, hot mama! :) Congrats on 32 weeks!

  13. What a precious little bump you're growing there, Mama! So incredibly happy for you and can't wait to see little Bubba! :)


  14. Så fin du är!!!!!!!!
    Spännande nu när det närmar dig med stormsteg.
    Men allvarligt +6,8kg?????????????
    Hur f*n lyckas du med det, jag gick ju upp 5 kg innan vecka 12! Haha!!!
    Puss och kram

  15. Can you believe we're getting so close?!!??!! I am having a shower on the 22nd too. I love your bump pics.

    Enjoy the weekend!

  16. Holy moly - I can't believe how quick that your pregnancy has gone (though I am sure it probably has not seemed that quick to you!!). SOOOOOOO exciting, it is really getting close now - I am so excited to your beautiful baby boy!! Good luck - I am thinking of you.

  17. YEAH!!!! 8 months! I do hope we have our kiddos on the same day. It would make it really easy to remember birthdays this way.

  18. Consider yourself lucky only having one baby, realizing as my baby girls are maturing that maybe we should have had them one at a time! ;)
    They are going from nice well-behaved babies to wild and curious beings.
    Also, January 22nd was my Dad's birthday and the date
    I would have liked my girls to arrive at... *wiping away a runaway tear*

  19. look at your cute bump! i love it! congrats on 32 weeks! can't wait to hear how things progress over the next 8 weeks!

  20. You look AMAZING!!! Oh, the falls, yeah...scary shit. No more ice for you! Oddly, hubby isn't freakin out about baby's arrival...but I am. LOL. And can I just say that the alien baby belly is my favorite thing in the world, and probably the thing I will miss the most. Mine looks like popcorn popping sometimes, all over the place, LOL. HUGS. Have fun at your shower this week!!!

  21. Wow! How'd it get to 32 weeks already. So near, and yet I bet the time will crawl from now on.

  22. thanks for the update.
    32 weeks and just 15 lbs!
    I will have gained more from marriage than you gained from pregnancy. Bubba must be burning all those calories for you.

    Glad you are still feeling good and that the slip on the ice didnt hurt either of you!

  23. First hope your shower was awesome, they are so fun and even better when we realize that it is OUR shower. You look awesome girl, man just amazing. Just wait till your little man gets here it just gets better. I'm still amazed everyday when I see our litle miracle. So glad all is well my friend. xoxo

  24. CP are you still there? I'm telling myself that no news is good news, but I'd much prefer good news... Hey, you tucked away your 34 week update in the side bar! ok, got my good news then :-)
    Hope you are calm and excited and not too uncomfortable.

  25. You are looking so well! So happy to hear all is going well for you.

  26. Hey CP, just stopped back to let you know that I have nominated you for an award!!

  27. Just wanted to send you a hug and a thank you for the support you left for me on my blog...there was no associated e-mail id or I would have responded on that.

    Good Luck with everything.

  28. Time for an update, right? 36 weeks - ahhh! And I NEED to know what a labor rehearsal is :) Hope you're well!


Talk to me. Hug me. Spank me. Whatever, just comment.
