32 Weeks (8 Months) Pregnant!

Today I am 32 weeks and 1 day pregnant. This means I have a minimum of 4 weeks and a maximum of 8 weeks to give birth if she is not overdue. It's actually really exciting and I can't quite believe that I am going to be a mummy very soon. :)

Each week my bump is getting bigger and it's becoming harder to move about, I'm still fine but I underestimate my size and frequently bump into things! All is good apart from the occasional heartburn and shortness of breath, I just can't wait to meet the little one!


Hubby: "Why are you huffing and puffing?"

Me: "I'm not, I'm out of breath"

Hubby: "But you didn't do anything"

Me: "I did, I rolled over"



We finally have the cot and it looks beautiful, it makes me smile every time I look at it. My mum came back from Turkey on Friday, and the blanket you see draped over the cot is one that she had made especially for baby bubbles, it's beautiful and I LOVE it!



She also got some lovely bedding but we are going to personalise it and make it even more beautiful, so I will show you at a later date. She also got some other bits and bobs but look how crafty the teddy is in the pic below, you can use it as a changer or sleeping spot - you can tell my mum is so excited to be having her 1st grandchild, my dad is also ecstatic I think he's even trying to give up smoking to set a good example! *Yey*


My wonderful hubby surprised me yesterday with the quilt that I wanted which I thought wouldn't fit, it's a bit big but I have tucked it under, he also got a mobile that plays "hush little baby" Awwww! :) This means I will have 2 sets of bedding which is perfect, the other is a white set so it will be nice to switch it up sometimes. It's all coming together and I can't wait until I hold my precious little one in my arms. :)


Oh did I tell you maternity leave makes you bored. very bored? Well it does, there's only so much you can do before you start getting crafty. I YouTube'd how to make a crochet baby hat and I actually made a hat and matching mittens, I'm actually quite smitten with myself as I didn't think I would be able to manage it. GO ME!



I didn't stop with that I also made a blanket which I will show you soon and I have gone a bit crazy making hair bands. I woke up at 07.30 this morning and I found myself crocheting, you had so see my hubby's sleepy eyes when he caught a glimpse of me.... :) I have made 4 so far to match some of her outfits and I am amazing myself with new techniques that I can do which I never knew I could and am having so much fun doing it.


Anyway, I can go on and on and on....

Until next time, kisses from me and baby bubbles! x X x

Awww so excited for you Muhsine! I really hope everything goes well during labour and that you both remain healthy and happy :)

The blanket is gorgeous! Home made items just make everything feel so much nicer.

You've been sensible about mat leave. I didn't take mine until I was about 34 weeks pregnant and I could barely move lol let alone get on and off tubes at peak time.

asmaa said...

You look gorgeous mashallah! Everything looks so cute, baby-bubbles is so lucky to have so many lovely things already :)

Oh speaking of heartburn... my mum always says that a pregnant woman who has heartburn is a sign that her baby will have a nice head of hair! She tested out the theory with my sister-in-law and it was true, my niece had lovely long, silky hair :) i was so surprised!

Catherine said...

you look absolutely beautiful. You actually have a glow about you which i never really 'got' before, when people would say about about pregnant women. But you're just gorgeous

I actually really enjoy reading your pregnancy updates too, it's such a personal thing to do, but you do it really well (coming from someone who never wants children!)

Muhsine said...

You are all so amazing to leave me such wonderful comments, thank you.

I remember reading that somebody asked if the Neals Yard Mothers balm was working (my eyes have gone funny and I can't find the comment) The answer is yes it's working, I have no stretchmarks on my belly, just yet and hopefully it stays that way.
