Baby #2 – Thirty Two Weeks

Mother of mercy, I am 8 months pregnant.

(It’s 9:15am and I already took that belt off and threw it under my desk in a fit of rage. A woman needs to breathe!)

Last week I was able to have a follow-up growth ultrasound to make sure the baby was still on track. I honestly wasn’t worried about anything after having the first ultrasound done because of how all his measurements came back just fine, but I was pretty excited to just be able to see him on the screen again. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: pregnant women love ultrasounds. I mean, you feel this kid moving around and punching your organs for months and months, think about them constantly, and you can’t help but wonder what they actually look like up in there.

Well, I’m thrilled to report that my son seems cute. I know I’ve talked about my fear of having an ugly baby before, so this is some seriously fantastic news for me.  Also, his feet are freaking huge…

For some reason, at every ultrasound I’ve had so far the technician absolutely INSISTS on printing out a picture of his — how do you say? — balls. I don’t ask for them to do this, but they take it upon themselves to go on a little Easter egg hunt and they just seem to get really excited when they can get a good shot of them. Hmm, nothanks. I have like 5 photos of those and it’s just getting weird.

Anywayyyyy. Have a good day. :)

  1. congrats. you look great, morgan! and I agree!!! — what is up with the ultrasound techs?!! I had similar experience with scarlett and her very obvious girl parts! they not only printed that one for me but put a big arrow pointing to it, incase family and friends missed her woo-woo front and center!! I was so embarrassed, especially when it got passed around the men folk in the fam! DIE!! I mean, there certainly were other views they could have printed and JUST LOVE the arrow!!!

  2. You look adoreable as ever! Maybe you can use his boy part photos to make a special slideshow, or use this as inspiration for a new type of yarn wreath ….jokes, jokes

  3. Ahahaha, you absolutely crack me up!!My husband was on my facebook account recently and goes, "Who is Mrs. Priss?" And I was like, "I don't know, but she is ridiculously hilarious!"

  4. Jenn: Yes, he’s Jack. :) And thank you! I bought it last night at Forever21, haha!

  5. hahaha…yea, i liked to check and make sure she was the same sex,but didnt need a pic of the lady bits everytime..LOL.

    Your looking too cute!

  6. Congrats on being 8 months pregnant! Not too much longer and you will have your little boy in your arms. I bet your little girl is going to be such a good big sister. How exciting to have one of each. Good luck with this last stretch.

  7. lol. that’s weird that they keep giving you those shots! I never had one of those once, always just a profile.

    also, you look super cute! I wish I had looked half as cute as you when I was preggers

  8. Okay you are hilarious! I always laugh so hard at your posts! Even if it weren’t for your cute craft projects I keep coming back for the laughter!

  9. Jody: Thank you so much for that bit of encouragement. :)

    Casey: I would KILL for a good profile shot… for some reason they haven’t been able to get many of his face which is what I actually want to see! bah!

    Taylor: That made my day. xo

  10. Just found you on stumble! Adorable blog. :)

    I am *almost* 32 weeks, I will be on Monday. I’m also having a boy, Parker.

    I think it’s pretty funny that your tech’s are so adamant about giving you the “money shots”. Mine forgot. haha When the ultrasound was over she literally started shaking, and apologizing, tried to get me to lay back down to get one, I told her it was no big deal, I have one from my first son, I know what it looks like. :P

    Be thankful that you have a “small” belly. *I’m sure it doesn’t feel that way!* I’m allllll belly, but still measuring perfectly. Go figure!

  11. first of all when did you become 8 mos pregnant already?! And #2 the testy photos are weird…can’t you just say uhh I’ll pass? Do some people really want those?

  12. I am a new follower, and I lerrrve your blog because you say things like “mother of mercy.” I had baby #1 3.5 weeks ago and wanted to say “Congrats!” if I haven’t already.

    I’m reallly good at starting to follow a blog and forgetting whether or not I’ve already left my maiden comment.

  13. You look so great my dear! and THIRTY TWO WEEKS?! How is this possible? I feel like you were just 32 weeks with MADDIE.

    Let’s all please stop getting so old.

  14. By the time I’m 8 months pregnant I will be wearing my long tank tops, gaucho pants and flip flops. I am so proud of you for still looking so amazing! Jeez, makes me feel bad!
    Dave actually requested ball shots every time, and (luckily) they could never get a really good shot, but I still had to go through the embarassment of him asking.

  15. You always look so cute! Pregnant women (and even non-pregnant women) must be super jeleaous of your adorable fashion sense.
