How far along? I am 31 weeks today! I can't believe we are down to single digit weeks. Blows my mind!
Total weight gain: I am up 6 pounds. I am honestly surprised it isn't more because I ate and ate at the wedding we went to over the weekend. I am trying to get back on track eating healthier--not necessarily for the weight part, but just how much better I feel when I am filling my body with veggies instead of sugar. ;)
Maternity clothes: Almost all maternity, although this top is not. I have been wearing almost all dresses lately and I LOVE that! My sister loaned me a few cute maternity dresses for the weekend and I loved wearing some of her plain, long maxis.
Sleep: I am sleeping really well! I sleep through the night just about every night and I am really thankful for that. My sister is two weeks ahead of me and already waking up several times a night to go to the bathroom, so I am really happy that hasn't happened to me yet!
Best moment this week: On Monday night, Henry fell asleep while we were reading books together in his room. He snuggled up really close to me and my belly and it was such an amazing moment. I rocked him for over an hour and just couldn't get over how sweet my little boy is. We've also been outside a lot lately and I keep thinking that this is what memories are made of--just the simple times we have outside running and playing together. Life is very good and for that I am extremely thankful.
Miss anything? I miss wearing my wedding rings. I wore them a little bit this weekend, but they were incredibly hard to take off in the evening. I am officially putting them in our safe, but it makes me really sad.
Movement: Yes and I love it. He is moving and kicking all of the time. I can even feel his little baby hands pretty often. That was one of my favorite feelings with Henry, too. :)
Food cravings: Not really...my work has an awesome cafeteria and their green beans are amazing. Other than that, I will eat just about anything. ;)
Anything making you nauseated or sick? No thank goodness!
Gender: Boy!!! :)
Labor signs: I have had a few contractions off and on, but nothing to really talk about in the past week. My previous belly pains have gone away for the most part and for that I am really thankful. He needs to stay put a few more weeks!
Symptoms: Just a lot of baby kicks.
Belly button in or out? In-but it is really starting to flatten out. Henry is obsessed with my belly button which really cracks me up!
Wedding rings on or off? Off--I am pretty sure all of the weight I have gained is in my fingers!! GEEZ!!
Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy. I get a little frustrated when I get really tired or run down in the evenings, but I know that is just a temporary thing. I did start taking an iron supplement and that has made a HUGE difference in my energy levels. Sometimes I didn't know how I was going to make it through the day because of how tired I was, but the iron has helped tremendously. I still get really tired--but now at 9 PM and not at 4 PM. :)
Looking forward to: The weekend with my family!! One of my friends is leaving her job to stay home as a momma full-time and we are going to be celebrating her with a dinner at The Melting Pot. I am also hoping to get Henry a pool to play in on our deck. I am mainly just looking forward to relaxing and getting our house in order after traveling and being on the go so much lately. And, of course I am looking forward to sleeping in a little bit. ;)
I also met with my new OB and really, really liked her. I was hoping for an ultrasound, but she wants to wait until my 35th week appointment for that. I had a list of questions and she was so awesome about answering all of them and told me she actually appreciated me coming to my appointment with questions already thought out. I loved that because I am such a list maker!! My main concern was my belly pain (which she thinks might be the baby kicking me directly in the gut sometimes!!) and the low amniotic fluid I experienced with Henry. She has scheduled me for an ultrasound at 35 weeks to start checking it and I am really thankful for that. With Henry I had zero notice about being induced, but at least this way we will (hopefully!!) have a little bit of an idea if that is going to happen. I am such a planner by nature that the suddenness of my previous induction was really, really difficult for me.
