Baby Talk: 32 Weeks

Saturday, August 10, 2013

So, I am now 32 weeks pregnant and into my 8th month of pregnancy. 8 more weeks and this baby girl is coming and she's coming fast! I cannot believe this is happening so soon. Time is flying. At 32 weeks I am still feeling pretty good...other than the fact that I am getting larger every day, I feel grateful for the pregnancy that I have had so far.
32 week symptoms:
-tiredness has hit me hard again
-back pains
-braxton hicks
-sleeping has become really uncomfortable

I also have some other news that I was debating on sharing here on my blog for the public to see, but then I realized who cares. I can write whatever I want on here and I'm not ashamed.
So 2 weeks ago I got diagnosed with gestational diabetes (I hate that it's called diabetes! It sounds horrible) I was so bummed when I first found out, but I had this weird feeling that I was going to have it. I just knew it. My doctor said that there was nothing I could have done to prevent this and it's not my fault at all. which made me feel better. Basically my hormones are just unbalanced and can't keep up with the changes happening and with my growing baby. So i am now on a strict diet and have to prick my finger 4 times a day to test my blood sugar levels. So far so good. As long as I keep to my diet, then everything should be fine. If i don't, well then I'm at risk of harming my baby - she could be huge at birth (which would most likely result in an early induction or c-section) and she would be at risk of having health issues later on in life. So for me, eating this way is so worth it and it isn't that bad. 

Other than that, everything is good! I am so excited to meet this sweet girl. I love her so much already it's crazy. I am DYING to see what she's going to look like, what her personality is going to be like, etc. I actually have started to play little games with her - she'll push on me really hard and I'll push her back..then she pushes me somewhere else and I push her back again (softly of course) but it's so funny. At least I think it is. She probably already thinks her mom is so annoying. ha! 


  1. Annie! I miss you! You look adorable just like I knew you would the day I discovered you were pregnant. You will make the best mom and I can't wait for Will to have a girlfriend! Stay healthy girl! Hope to see you (and that Piper girl soon!) xo

  2. I just got done reading all the new posts so I will just do a "group" comment on this one. First...loved reading about all the adventures. So glad you are recording it all. You are the cutest little pregnant lady especially in a bathing suit and hat. Ha Ha! Hawaii trip looked so awesome and I am so glad you had the opportunity to do that. Graduation...a highlight for us as well. So glad we all went to Idaho to participate in the festivities and to see your old roommates. I love them. You and Jason are so sweet together. What a great team you make and what great parents you will be. On to the next adventure.
