32 Weeks!

It feels so good to say that I have made it to 32 weeks of this pregnancy on May 17th!  I'm so thrilled to be in the 30's and hanging in there!

Surprised by who was the willing kid to take pictures with me this week?! :)  I'm glad the her princess tiara was able to make the pictures, too!

At my 32 week appointment I was measuring right on track.

This little kiddo loves to become active right around bedtime.  It's like clock-work.  Right when I go to relax in the evening or lay in bed he/she starts doing somersaults moving and kicking all around.

This past week I had more contractions happening each day.  Because of that my doctor checked me at my 32 week appointment - happy to report my cervix is still closed and seemed long.  Phew!  Happy to hear with all of those contractions I didn't have any cervical change.

I only have 4 more weekly progesterone shots left!!!  (my last one I will receive will be at 36 weeks)

I definitely feel tired during the day now being now in the third trimester.  I try and take a quick cat nap when Kate and Matthew nap if I am able.  By the middle of the day I just feel wiped!  Plus taking my contraction medicine - which is used also for lowering blood pressure - really makes me tired and slow down.

Kevin and I are still working on picking out our girl and boy name for this little one.  Finding it harder this time around.  But we aren't sharing any names...sorry. :)

Feeling excited that in 2 months or less we will get to meet you Baby Willms! <3 p="">

Baby Willms #3 is 30 Weeks!

Saturday, May 3rd, marked 30 weeks for little Baby Willms #3!  Thirty weeks is awesome!  I'm so excited to be in the 30's.  Only 2.5 months away from baby's full term due date of July 12th!   

At 30 weeks baby is about 15.7 inches long now and weighs almost 3 pounds (about the size of a large cabbage).

At my 30 week doctor's check-up I was still measuring right on track and the baby's heartbeat was in the 160's bpm.  My Obgyn still thinks the baby is head down at this time.  (fingers crossed he/she stays in that position!)

What a goofball!  He loves to be Mr. Funny and place the sign over his face!

As I'm getting closer to the due date, I'm getting more anxious and excited to find out if this little one is a girl or a boy!  It's going to be fun to have that moment when we find out...I'm so glad we are leaving it a surprise!

my photographer got creative, lol! :)
