30-32 Weeks Pregnancy Update & Life Lately

Weeks 30-32:  Still can't believe how fast all of it is flying by.  I had my prenatal appointment at 30 weeks, and everything is looking good.  I actually don't need to see my midwife until first week of November since everything is going smoothly.   I weighed in at a little less than 132.  I truly feel like I am all belly.  I literally walk like a penguin, hehe!  I don't have a very long torso, so my belly is quite visible.  I finally went to see my dentist last week, and she was surprised at how well my teeth looked.  So was I!  She said to keep doing what I'm doing.  I'm guessing the apples I have been snacking on have been doing the trick ;)  I did increase my calcium intake, so that can also be aiding in my teeth staying strong ad healthy.  And I use a regular tooth brush, nothing fancy (even though I might invest in one in the near future).

For the last week, I have been having leg cramps at night.  I had these with my first pregnancy and completely forgot about them.   And my the acid reflux is also a not so fun symptom.  I really need to eat smaller meals now because if I stuff myself, that usually causes it.  This baby girl is super active, I would say even more so than Masha was.  I am very curious to see how much she will weigh at birth considering I am much smaller this time around.

Overall, I feel great!  Definitely have less energy than I did in my 2nd trimester.  I keep up my daily walks (morning & evenings) and it seems to help.  It is a bit cooler now, mostly due to less humidity.  Can I say I'm absolutely loving it!    Masha has been keeping me busy.  We are always out and about.  Love when my hubs has a day off, she is such a daddy's girl.  Love watching them play together.  Can't wait to go to a pumpkin patch this weekend!

Here are some photos from last couple weeks:

  1. Hi Luba!
    I just came across you're blog yesterday and it is really lovely as the name suggests :-)
    I'm currently 29weeks pregnant with my first baby, a girl, who were naming Luka! Plus she'll be half Russian (from her dad) and can't wait to meet her in December/January.
    You look gorgeous and little Masha is so cute, can't wait to see you're new little addition and more posts

    1. Wow that is a beautiful name!! Congrats to both of you on your baby girl!

  2. Thank you so much for your sweet comment!! Made me blush :))

  3. I love that Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. It's so perfect for my skin!

    (I’m currently running a giveaway for some gorgeous jewelry, if you’re interested.)

  4. I have the same Origins facial mask and was hesitant to use it since I'm also pregnant (27 weeks). Did you have the same concerns?

    1. No not at all. Origins using amazing ingredients and I only use it couple times a month. It works amazing with my skin. Try it out, if it doesn't work for you, you can always return :)


Thank you so much for reading! I love your comments/suggestions. I read each one of them and I appreciate you taking the time to leave one.
