32 Weeks and a Baby Shower

I’m currently 32 weeks + 4 days with Little Rabbit. My belly is bigger and bigger by the minute, work is nuts, and I’m starting to feel more fatigue settle in. Getting up once I’ve relaxed on the couch is HARD!

Last weekend we had 2 baby showers. The first was girls-only and was hosted by my mom’s friends. It was really sweet of them- they made some potluck brunch, we played a game, and they were so generous with gifts. Later on that evening, we had our main baby shower- a couple’s one, hosted by our friends. The main pic here is me, swinging at a piñata and everyone else staying far far back 🙂

Last week we had our 32 week scan- and everything looked good! She is head-down which is great, and about 42nd percentile. My fasting glucose was 12 points lower than the previous reading, which means my GD diet, even when its annoying, is really working. I was so thrilled to hear that!

Things are getting real now- really real. We have the vast majority of our baby gear, we’ve taken an infant safety class, I got my breast pump, I am trying to rapidly finish (or at least make significant progress on) my work projects– and really, the countdown is on.  I still can’t believe I am here and even though I am still anxious sometimes, I could not be more grateful.

Less than 8 weeks to go…

  1. Good luck! If you haven’t already, I would totally recommend seeing a lactation consultant before bub arrives, make sure you have the correct size flanges for your pump and she/he can give some practical advice about starting off. I wish I had then maybe my breastfeeding journey wouldn’t have ended at 3 weeks 😦

    Then, if you are having problems you will already have met the consultant and you will probably feel more comfortable with them and they will know your background already!

    I will be doing this of we ever have baby number 2 as washing bottles is a pain in the butt 😂

    1. We are actually taking a breastfeeding class but I also wonder if I should meet with a consultant for one-on-one attention. I don’t know what options are in every city but in mine, the city offers something like up to 5 free visits
