Mommy Monday: 32 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2!

3 February 2014

How far along? 32 weeks - 8 months baby!
Total weight gain/measurements: 27lbs, stayed the same at 142 the last two weeks! 
Maternity clothes: My jumper is from New Look Maternity (bought from ASOS, it's sold out now...sorry!) My leggings are non-maternity from Heatons (bought a few years ago) and my tank top is actually a nursing singlet from Boob. I did buy a few more maternity items recently which I will share in an upcoming post.
Stretch marks? Still no new ones.
Sleep: Okay - I sleep with a pillow between my legs and that seems to help a lot!
Best moment this week: We finally decided on a stroller! I think we are going with a Jane Twone. Of course we had to get a double stroller as we will have two under 2! I also picked up some more clothes for the baby in the Debenhams sale! 

Junior J by Jasper Conran Train Babygro in Blue

I got this in size newborn to pack in my hospital bag. I'm still unsure of how big this baby will be so I am being careful when buying newborn sizes...I think Emilia wore newborn for about 2 weeks before she started fitting into 0-3 months. I will be playing it by ear as far as what my doctor says in the upcoming weeks with regards the baby's size but for the meantime I decided to pick up a few newborn items for my hospital bag.

Bluezoo Fleece Blue Striped Babygro (size newborn)
I thought this would be lovely & cosy for when he first comes out of me...ha ha ha!

Baker Baby by Ted Baker Knit Cardigan (size 0-3 months)
This is my absolute favourite purchase! Jonathan actually has a Ted Baker cardigan that looks very similar to this...I got it in a size bigger so that it would last longer and hopefully they can be twins! 

Miss anything? Same complaints as last week...right now I am feeling like a little old lady with my pregnancy aches and pains, I've never been the kind of person to suffer from any kind of back pain or aches when I get up from the couch or bed so it's difficult! 
Movement: Lots but he is a stubborn baby! Emilia used to be so reactive to whenever I'd touch or prod my belly to get her to move, but this guy is the total opposite. He has given me so many frights because although he has regular active periods during the day (and night), when he is asleep, there's no disturbing him! No matter how much I jiggle my belly he just lies there like a big freaks me out! 
Food cravings: I don't really have very strong cravings but the other day I reeeeeally wanted pancakes. Although I think that's just because I saw a picture on Instagram, ha ha!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Coffee and/or tea (as in black coffee, not frothy lattes!)
Gender: BOY!
Labour signs: I am feeling lots of pressure down there, which is probably just due to the fact that he is so low. I also have been experiencing the delightful lightening crotch! 
Symptoms: Apart from the few I've already mentioned, I'm still getting heartburn after every meal so I'm taking Rennie spearmint tablets which help.    
Belly button in or out? Out!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time? A bit of both!
Looking forward to: Meeting this baby! I can't believe he is due next month!
