32 Weeks

This past Monday, we went to our 32 week appointment and had another ultrasound. It is amazing how much Cash has grown since we saw him at 18 weeks. I mean, I can totally FEEL and SEE him moving inside of me, but seeing him on screen still amazes me even after 3 pregnancies. He waved his hand at us and open and closed his mouth like he was a little fish or something. So cool! We did find out, however, that our little man is breech. I have never had this problem with the girls, so this is all new for us. Dr Strong said he would give me until about 37 weeks until we start making decisions, so we will see. Right now, we are just praying for him to do some sort of a forward roll. :) Also, he seems to be a big ole' boy, and is measuring a week early. I think Cash is already giving us a run for our money. I thought boys were supposed to be easier?! We will keep y'all posted on the weeks to come. For now, here are some pics of our little love.

32 Week Baby Bump (or my mom likes to call it)

Week Thirty-Two
  • Your baby is up to 3.75 pounds (1702gm) now and is 16.7 inches (42.4cm) long.
  • You might notice she's not moving around as much now. Don't worry! She is fine -- just running short on room. She still has plenty of growing to do though, believe it or not!
  • All five senses are working. Your little one is fascinated and practicing testing these out as much as possible!
  • Toenails are completely formed even though she may not be quite ready for a French manicure.
  • Hair on your infant's head continues to grow in. Will he have dad's black hair or your red hair?
  • Brain scans have shown that babies have periods of dream sleep (REM) starting around the eight month. What do you suppose your son is dreaming about?

What an adorable belly! I will definitely be praying for Cash to do some gymnastics. Reagan was breech at that appointment for me too. And she ended up turning at the very last minute.

Praying that little dude flips around! If you have a c-sec. I will for sure come stay with you! :)

Charlie was breech then too! My doctor assured me he still had a lot of time, and even though I felt like he had NO room to do it, he flipped around I think at about 36 or 37 weeks. And it felt WEIRD!!! :) I've also did some exercises to get him to flip- don't know if that's what did it, but I can show them to you Tues if you want. :)

Actually my nurse that taught our Lamaze class gave it to me. I'll see if I still have the paper- its pretty simple, basically a modified head stand. :P I'll look for it...

Hey Ash!
I have had several friends with that problem. They all went and had acupuncture done and it worked everytime. Worth a try. I will be praying for you girl.

Look at that belly! Hoping Cash does a roll and heads south! We'll be praying for that!

Ashley said...

I'll say a little pray for you and Cash....FYI both Kaden and Brynn were breech until week 37-38. Those little stinkers flipped the last minute!
