32 Weeks

The board is back up on the wall! :) I always like to take my pictures after church, because I feel like that is the only day I really put effort into my clothing options anymore. haha

How far along: 32 weeks or 8 months.... What!? Getting just a bit nervous....
Babies measurements: 16.7 in. 3.75 lbs.
Total weight gain: 16 lbs.
Gender: Boy
Maternity clothes: Not in this pic. This is one of the only skirts that still fits me, and its so tight I can barely breathe! haha
Movement: He is so active this week! I was worried last week and he must have heard me, because oh my gosh! This little man cannot control any of his limbs! haha I don't quite know if that's a good thing or not....
Food cravings: Still Mexican, and chocolate milk.
Miss anything? Walking normal, I have started the waddle!
Belly button in or out? It's starting to bulge ever so slightly.... :(
Best moment this week: Nothing in particular, but we keep slowly adding to his room! I can't wait until it's all done!
Looking forward to: My showers! None of them have happened yet and I'm getting so anxious!

I took this picture for a class of mine called Eating Disorders and Body Image. Now obviously I don't have an eating disorder, but I just took it as an elective and there was a project due where you had to use some form of media to describe how you felt about your body. So naturally I took a picture of the one thing I love most about my body right now. I wrote a couple of paragraphs on my growing belly and the amazing things it has been doing and I realized how truly blessed I am! I was able to get pregnant with no complications and I have been able to carry this baby (almost full term) without anything wrong at all. I am grateful that the lord has put his trust in me raising this baby! I am so scared and excited all at the same time. I'm also so glad that I have been diligent at keeping up my progress each week because I know this will be such a treasure to me later on when I want to look back and remember this amazing time of growing a human in my belly. I'm glad I took this picture because I think it's nice to be able to focus only on my belly without the board or anything else distracting. Anyway, just a little tangent there! I had to share how grateful I am for this little baby and my body that can do miraculous things!


  1. Look at that cute belly! I LOVE that picture! You are adorable! I can't wait for Jack's shower, either. It will be so fun to fill his room up with all his cute things!

  2. So cute Ky!! I can't wait for your shower next week! It will be so fun to see you! :) You are such an adorable pregnant mama! As my belly continues to get bigger, I could only hope it will be as cute as yours! :)

  3. I love that 2nd picture! the lighting is so beautiful!
