32 Week Pregnancy Update – June & July

25 weeks

25 weeks

June and July: I’m totally slacking here and I have no excuses and no apologies.  June and July just simply flew by.  Paul was busy with youth work camps and trips.  We had a few baby showers, he played some gigs, and we continued to prepare ourselves to become parents!  The trips have now wound down and work travel for me is doing the same.  I’m 32 weeks today.  8 weeks to go, which seems nearly impossible.  Just flipping back through my weekly belly shots from the past 32 weeks I can’t understand how that many weeks can fly by in the blink of an eye.

26 weeks

Feeling: Overall I’m still feeling mostly good, and I recognize that I have absolutely nothing to complain about because for the most part, I have had it made and I know that pregnancy is so much worse for some women.  Paul is such a supportive partner, too.  There is no way I would be doing as well without his cheerleading!

I have started to feel some fatigue creeping back, especially after over-exerting myself, or after spending too much time in the heat.  Although, I cannot complain about the summer weather – it’s been extremely mild up until the past few weeks.  My rib cage feels like it’s going to explode most days but other than that my body is holding up well.  I’ve been working with a chiropractor for a couple of months now and she is helping me to stay lined up and I’m so grateful for that!

I’m also feeling extremely excited to meet this little guy or girl, especially knowing that it’s really right around the corner.  We are still in the process of really letting it all set in and it’s funny sometimes, the things that make us look at each other and say “we are really doing this!”  Each step we take in the process probably makes it a little more real, and might make us a little bit more excited (and terrified!)

25 Week Pregnancy Update


25 weeks along and Baby L. is about 2 pounds and over a foot long and growing more and more each week. Food: Thankfully, no food aversions.  Pretty much ALL food sounds good, ALL the time.  No strange food craving combinations, but definitely some cravings are going on.  I am not...

may 8

May in Missouri was pretty fabulous, I must say.  I’m definitely out of the first-fourteen-week-weirdness of pregnancy, have regained some energy and had a full calendar of life-living to do!  And it’s hard to hate May when the weather was as great as it was.  Yes, we had some...

Baby Laemmli - 20 weeks

HALFWAY!!  We are halfway to meeting our little babe!  The pregnancy is flying by and I’m so happy to say that I’m feeling much better than I was during the first 14 weeks.  I started to get some energy back around week 12, and then had another week or...

April was – dare I say it – uneventful?  Except it was full of good stuff all at the same time.  I had a conference out of town for work, a bridal shower, a wedding, and a weekend trip to KC which included my first IKEA experience.  And I...

My thoughts on pregnancy: 3 months in


In case you missed something along the way…Paul and I are expecting our first baby in October and we couldn’t be more excited! When we first started trying I had no idea what to expect but I would be lying if I didn’t say that I was hoping that we...
