Mmmh not very good at this weekly posting thing hey.
Anyways we have reached 32 weeks and 2 days today, being Sunday the 4th of August. Baby is weighing between 1.2 and 1.7 kilos at the moment. My tummy is HUGE, but nice and compact (apparently) so I feel good about that. No swelling and no stretch marks as of yet, so all good. Its getting difficult to bend down and tie shoe laces, use dust pan and brush and generally pick things up, but not so much because
of my stomach, but the light headedness that comes with it. So I think Ricky will have to take over those tasks for me! Im very excited because he is back from his holiday today. Its been 16 sleeps! I've managed pretty well though. No issues to mention and the dogs have been easy. We have spent a lot of time on the beach because the weather has been so amazing for August. It was 28 degrees last Thursday, so I took the afternoon off work and we sat on Camps Bay and then Hout Bay beach all afternoon and then as it was Dad's birthday we went for dinner and sat outside to eat! It was amazing.
Oh and huge news is our best friends Greg and Gosia had their little twins last week FRiday. They were 2 months early, but are doing really well. And Gosia was able to have them naturally which is so super as she had planned a c section. But the babies wanted out all on their own...
Her waters broke at work and she drove herself to the hospital and out they popped, one after the other, in less than 4 hours! They are being incubated at the moment while they put on weight, but they are starting to feed well and they can hopefully take them home in a week or so. At the moment Arizona, who came out first, but is the smallest at the moment, weighs 1.66 kilos and Indiana weighs in a 2 kilos.
So meet our babies "big sisters" Arizona and Indianna. So over the moon for them, and really looking forward to lots of family get togethers....

And out little baba is the size of a squash this week I believe, although not a little gem squash but a BIG squash! And squashed is how my stomach feels. I can't believe there is still 8 weeks to go and more growing to happen! And S/he moves so much, huge summersaults, hiccups and kicks. And mostly in the morning, just before bed and then in the middle of the night......
Here is bump and squash, hope you all have a lovely week:
