Frilly Baby: 32 Week Update and 10 Signs You May Be Pregnant

32 weeks. Only 8 weeks left.

Things are still just sorta the same, but puffier. Oh, and I also have constant pain in my left foot. It feels like it needs to be cracked, but crack it will not. Still though, I certainly don’t have much to complain about.

Baby Bee is about the size of a large squash today, at roughly 16.5 inches long and 4 and a half pounds! Baby Bee sleeps about 90-95% of the day. That’s a LOT more than Baby Bee’s momma’s sleeping these days. I’m starting to think I’ll get more sleep once the baby arrives. Between tossing and turning, getting up to pee, and just plain being restless, sleep is practically non-existent. I got up at 4am today.

Baby Bee’s skin is getting smoother all the time, with most of the wrinkles starting to disappear now that fat deposits are building up under the skin. Baby Bee’s hair is also becoming thicker and thicker. I do hope Baby Bee is born with a good head of hair.

At home, the nursery is now starting to take shape. The room is cleaned out now for the most part, and Daddy has put new baseboard trim in the room. This is a picture of Baby Bee’s room, before:

And here we are now. Daddy is busy putting together a lovely dresser and change table, compliments of my parents. Soon the crib will be on its way from Auntie Jennifer and Uncle Jesse too. This little room will take shape in no time.

While Daddy is busy putting together furniture, I’ve been busy making Baby Bee a felt mobile to hang above the crib. We were hoping to go with a bit of a woodsy nature theme. While checking on Pinterest for stuff that might go with this theme, I found some great pins for felt mobiles. So I decided we had to have one, but not for the $100 price tag most of these mobiles cost. It’s still in the beginning stages, but hopefully our version of a nursery mobile will fit the bill. All in all, our mobile has cost us $10-$12 to make. Not too shabby.

I’ll post more pictures of the nursery and the mobile as they near completion. Until then, you’ll find me sleeping in a recliner… Zzz…
