32 Weeks (Bump #2)


Total Weight Gain: 30 lbs, and I'm owning it...or trying to!  This was all I gained with Liam, so it's hard to know this number will be increase by another 10 lbs likely.  Although scale wise, I still weigh less than I did with Liam, so there's that small victory.  I need to remind myself that starting this pregnancy underweight means I of course will gain more.

Symptoms: Just more Braxton Hicks.

Food Cravings/Aversions:  Fruit, lemonade, & all breakfast foods (especially croissants)...exact same as last week.

Staying Active? Another four runs this week, boom!  However....I officially took my last run this week.  It has been getting increasingly hard on my body, and I knew I was pushing myself too hard.  My last run was an emotional one, and I'm still pouting about it to be honest.

Cries: A few.  It was another slightly emotional week.  But I'm a bit of an emotional person, so it's expected!

Liam's Thoughts:  He keeps telling me that Finn is going to "pop out"!  I'm sure hope so buddy, that would wonderful in comparison to Liam's 2 day labor!  He's also started talking about nursing much more, especially since my colostrum has come in.  The other night he very sweetly told Conor & I that he is going to share "Nini" (what he calls nursing) with baby Finn.  It will be interesting to see how all this plays out once Finn is actually here.

Birth Plan:  We have hired a doula, and both Conor & I just adore her.  She has already given me more confidence going into this birth.  We've met with her twice already, and I can't wait for all that is going to come with her and with Finn's birth!

  1. That's so cool your colostrum has already come in. I always figured one of the reasons I struggled with breast feeding was because noah came early and the body can't be ready with the milk that early. I guess everybody is different with when that happens!

  2. Did you have a doula with Liam too? Sounds like such a great person to have in your corner at that time.

  3. Don't even pay attention to the numbers! You look AMAZING and, as long as you're feeling healthy, that's all that matters! (I know that's easier said than done, but seriously...you are ROCKING the extra 30 pounds!) I am so proud of you for still getting in four runs last week, but good for you for listening to your body. ;) 32 weeks, wow!! It seems so fast!

  11. Yay for finding a doula ya'll are already loving so much!!!! So excited for ya'll. And girlfriend, I'm already a few pounds away from my delivery weight with Lily. I didn't gain nearly enough with her though, so I keep trying to tell myself that. Its difficult though. Lily seems to think she needs to nurse again too. We have had many conversations about the boobies. haha It'll be interesting to say the least.

  14. I'm amazed you were able to run that long...and keep up with a toddler! I was exhausted everyday without exercising, ha. And I definitely hope labor for you is much easier the second time!
