Pregnancy | 32 weeks

Bump shot | As big as a squash | Bradley & I & Bump | 32 week bump shot

How far along? 
32 weeks.

Size of baby?

Midwife measured me at 33 weeks this week. He's apparently the size of a squash according to pregnancy apps. 

Any news this week?

I've been struggling quite a bit this week. Back ache, bump ache, mild SPD. Had my 32wk midwife appointment this week and she confirmed Ive torn my stomach muscles from the top of my bump down to my tummy button. I'm in agony. I've just been told to rest and take pain killers and if it gets any worse to go in. Just worried its only going to get worse as I get bigger these last few weeks. I've been in tears the last few days, its so so painful. 
In other news, he's found his way head down finally. :)

I've still been living in New Look Maternity Leggings (£14.99 x2) with maternity vests. 

I'm still moisturising daily with both Phytorelax Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream all over [as far as I'm aware you can only get this in the US, unless imported into stores such as TK Maxx which is where I picked it up from; £4.99] And moisturising my bump daily with Palmer's Cocoa Butter Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks (£2.10). I'm still reaching for my Anatomicals Spray Misty For Me Facial Spritz (£3.12) to cool down my feet and face during hot sticky nights. I've also started to introduce Elastolabo Perineal Massage Gel (£17.49*) this week.

Pain from torn stomach muscles, back ache, slight acid reflux/heartburn, tiredness. etc. 

Had one bad night this week where I couldn't seem to sleep at all! The majority of the week I've been sleeping well and still sleeping on top of the covers every night, wrapped around my Argos Sleep Pillow (£11.99).

Missing anything? 
Whippy ice cream - on the way home from the hospital once I've had baby, a trip thru McDs drive thru to order 10 caramel sundaes is in order, haha!!

Lots of strong movements. Did you see my video on my Instagram this week?? He was having a right party in there!! :)

Any purchases?:
Nothing new this week.

Best moment this week:
Midwife appointment going well.

Worst moment this week: 
The pain of torn stomach muscles.

Food cravings:
I still can't get enough cereal and ice lollies at the moment!! I can't imagine how many ice lollies and ice poles I get through a day!!

Anything making you queasy or sick:


Belly Button in or out? 

It's at the surface, so haven't really got an inny or an outy right now :)


Really tired.

Looking forward to:

My next midwife appointment in 2 weeks. The delivery of my Mamas & Papas 

Can't believe I'm now 33 weeks, 7 weeks to go!!
