Week 32

How Far Along: 32 weeks 2 days! Really starting to panic about the fact that we are so unprepared. We have so little for this baby and I feel like we are so behind. I am usually a planner and like to get things done early, but we want to wait till after our shower to see what we need.
How Big Is Baby: A squash even though a few weeks ago she was an acorn squash...I guess she is now an unnamed bigger variety of squash.
Total Weight Gain:
 As of last Thursday I have gained 18 pounds! Woohoo! I thought I was struggling with my weight, but I am right on track and the doc is very happy with my extra poundage.
Sleep: Sleeping fine. I still can't sleep in because I have a million things to do and my nesting is still in full gear. I guess my sleep in days are over for the next 18 years...
Movement: Constant rolls, nudges, wiggles, and still getting kicks. She also gets the hiccups at least once a day and sometimes more! She is so much fun!
What I Miss: Went to breakfast this morning and really wanted over easy eggs. I guess at the moment I miss runny eggs in general.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Feeling more prepared! My showers!
Milestones: baby not only sleeps, but experiences REM sleep. That is kinda cool!
Symptoms: Hmm still peeing a lot and my skin still breaking out.
Other: My best childhood friend is giving birth as we speak! She may have already had her little man as I figure she won't call me immediately after he makes his appearance. I am so excited for her to meet her sweet baby boy.


  1. I've been reading your blog for months now and feel I should stop being a stalker and make myself known. :) I'm a 30-year-old woman with CF and am currently 29 weeks pregnant with twins! I can relate to so many of your pregnancy experiences, most generally the fact that everything has been amainzingly smooth and that I am completely obsessed with being pregnant. In one of your blogs you referenced all of the negative press CF pregnancies get and your guilt at broadcasting your opposite experience. I'm so glad you've done this because you've given me inspiration throughout my own pregnancy journey! Thank you so much! Keep up the beautiful writing and growing of that miracle in your belly! I'm right there with ya'!

  2. I am so glad you made yourself known! Congrats on your twins!! I can't imagine how exciting having 2 at once must be. I am so glad your pregnancy is going well. I think Cysters need to know that, yes, there are risks involved in pregnancy with CF, but that doesn't guarantee a horrible experience. I honestly thought when I got pregnant that I would be in and out of the hospital, off work, and struggling for the 9 months. Quite the opposite! I am glad you are loving pregnancy as well, it truly is an amazing experience.

    I hope you have a very healthy and wonderful rest of your pregnancy! Please keep me posted on how you and your little ones are doing!
