32 & 33 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #2



Baby
It's estimated that the baby has grown from 16.7 inches long to 17 and is now the length of a pineapple! I never understood the fruit sizing references as they vary in size, you see small pineapples, large pineapples! But yes, she's now the size of a pineapple apparently! She's continuing to put on weight and should have gone from roughly 3.75 lb to 4.25 lb. It's comforting to know that if she was to come early she should have quite a substantial weight now. She should put on another half a pound for the next four weeks! I would love to know exactly what she weighs at the moment because she may double in weight by the time she's born. I think she will be around 8lb 2oz, a pound bigger than her brother, just a wild guess.

I also have a feeling that she's quite a big baby already or that she's just a lot more vivacious than Noah was in the womb. She moves around a lot and often responds to our voice or to our touch, which I absolutely adore. She is also really strong and some of her movements can really hurt, especially when she wedges herself in my pelvis or behind my rib cage. I think she's going to be a feisty one, just like her Mummy. 

I think we've finally decided on a name now too. It's the one that we've liked all a long but we were keeping our options open, that being said I want to wait until she's born before I totally decide!


Mummy
Thankfully my pelvis and lower back pain has now subsided slightly and I'm getting a little bit of relief. This is a surprise because at times I can feel the baby really low down and you'd think that would cause me further pelvis issues but it's not been the case as of yet. I've been feeling quite lethargic lately, forever tired and quite often feeling sick. I'm getting to that stage now where although I love pregnancy and everything it entails I'm looking forward to feeling human again and of course I'm so excited to meet our baby girl.

This pregnancy has totally flown by but I think from this point going forward it will now it will start to go slowly. I'm huge bump wise, just like I was with Noah and people have mentioned that they think I look like I've dropped, but I'm not too sure. I do still feel like she's going to come early but as I said on my last update, we will have to wait and see. I'd hate to go overdue but I wouldn't mind waiting as long as I can experience a normal labour and not have to be induced again. I really want to experience going into labour naturally and a water birth would just be a dream come true. 

I cannot wait for our family of three to blossom into four. Noah is so excited to meet her too, he's forever kissing and stroking the bump on his own accord and he keeps telling her to hurry up! I really do think he's going to make an amazing big brother.

See you next week.

  7. I hope you get the water birth you want. I had a water birth with both of mine and they were both amazing. I can't imagine giving birth on 'dry land'!
