32 WEEK PREGNANCY UPDATE BABY #2


Turns out I actually turned 32 weeks on Monday and not today which I found out at my midwife appointment this week. At each appointment she always said a different date to what I had thought I was that week but I always nodded and went along with it thinking she was just getting mixed up, I went back through my notes when I got home and found out my due date had in fact actually been the 5th of January all along!! I have no idea where I got the 9th from, perhaps when I was trying to work out when I was due before my first scan I'm not entirely sure ha ha! I know that it doesn't really make much difference at all but it is nice to knock a few days off! 

This week baby boy is the size of a squash, he weighs around 3.75lb and is roughly 16.7inches long. I can't believe how big I am this time round compared to when pregnant with Amelia! I already feel as big as I did when I was about 36 weeks and beginning to feel the joys of pregnant that I did then such as pain when sitting down, hard to put socks on and bend down and many other things. 

At my midwife appointment everything went well, my iron is low but not as low as with Amelia so nothing to be concerned about, he had a good heartbeat and everything else came back normal apart from the fundus measurements just like the last appointment. Two weeks ago he was measuring 3 weeks behind and now he's only 2 weeks behind so there is improvement. At my next appointment if he's still measuring behind they may refer me for a growth scan to monitor things. 

I've found it difficult to do simple things this week such as putting my shoes and socks on, bending down to pick things up, sitting on the sofa and getting up again. It's also beginning to be uncomfortable at bedtime and I've been enjoying the using the Theraline pregnancy pillow which I got out last week. You can see in the photo above that the bump is getting much rounder, I took this on the day of the midwife appointment which is when I would have been 32+1 to get more of an accurate growth photo as Friday's photo will be my 33 week one instead, although I am pretty bloated at the photo was taken late afternoon.

Baby boy has been kicking me in the ribs a lot this week and is very uncomfortable! Especially when I'm sat down, I just can't seem to find a comfy position without getting kicked every minute! He never seems to be asleep at night time and is far more active than Amelia ever was in the womb. 

You can check out my 31 week update here and we will be back on Monday instead of Friday's from now on with our next update!

  4. it's nice knocking a few days off the "wait". I'm 29+1 weeks pregnant today. I also found I'm much bigger this time round than with my first - and just like you struggling with "normal" things like putting on shoes, getting off the couch or out of bed - I literally roll out of bed!!!
    I've been following your journey and even emailed you a few weeks ago!
