31 Weeks!

How Far Along?  31 Weeks! Just about 9 to go!

How Big is Baby? If she is on track with where the average baby would be right now, she would be a little over 3 lbs. and around 18 inches long. We'll just have to wait and see...this question seems a bit silly.

Total Weight Gain: At my appt. on Tuesday, I was 152 lbs. (the other 4 I lost in the past week must have been swelling). So, I guess 32 lbs gained.

Maternity Clothes? All the time. I've also come to love wearing Matt's t-shirts as pajamas.

Stretch Marks?  Nope!

Sleep: Hit or miss. Sunday night I slept for 12 hours, so Monday night I slept for maybe 3. Tuesday night I was up from 12:30-5:30am. Last night I woke up at 3:30am and have been up since. 

Best Moment this Week: My team baby shower was on Saturday and boy were we showered. I am so thankful for all my supportive team parents and all the wonderful gifts they got for us and for Lilly Belle. They put so much thought into all the food and theme and it was adorable. The girls seemed to really be having so much fun, too. I loved being with all of them so much!

Matt and I also really did a lot in her nursery this week. From Matt putting up some shelves for her plushes and building her bookshelf, to us getting her beautiful knobs for her dresser and some's all really starting to come together.

Also, seeing her carseat (a gift from my dance moms), all out of the box and sitting in her room made things so real. 

Miss Anything: Sleeping on my stomach.

Movement: She is still a mover. She has started to get her little feet jammed up in my ribs too. Ouch.

Food Cravings:  Still love tuna! Marie made me a tuna sandwich on Sunday for lunch and I was so excited. Then, got super sad when it was all gone. That's the not fun part about tuna being my craving. The only having it once/week part. The rest of this week I have really loved Peanut Butter Crunch cereal and cheese. (Not together). 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Eating too much, too quickly. Also when Lilly starts rolling all around, that has made me feel nauseous lately.

Gender: Sweet little Ms. Lillian Belle!

Symptoms: Not being able to sleep. Still on "no activity" from my midwives for high blood pressure. Still have a terrible constant pain in my right leg/groin/hamstring area (basically where my leg connects to my girl parts). Short of breathe a lot. Pain under my right ribs due to Lilly's feet hanging out up there.

Looking Forward to: Meeting our sweet little bean. I want so badly for her to come meet us a little early. I have a feeling that she's going to make me learn another lesson in patience though and not show up for at least a few days after her due date. I'd be happy to meet her anytime after August 2nd. That's my last day of summer camp and my official start of Maternity Leave. I told Matt that maybe I'll start going for runs after that to get her out (totally kidding!) Matt has finals August 8th too'm just kind of ready to meet her and be done with this part : ) I'm so ready for us to start our life with her.
