Pregnancy has been a sweet and exciting time. Something I never thought I'd get to experience but am overjoyed that I have been able to. With only a few more weeks to go until we meet our baby, I can't help feeling a little sad that this journey is almost over - even though a new and greater one is about to begin. There is a part of me that feels like I haven't captured and enjoyed all pregnancy is, that it has gone by too fast. I want to relish this last month and a half as much as possible and document everything.
How far along? 31 weeks
Total weight gain: A little over 20 pounds and I honestly can't wait to lose it
Maternity clothes? Yes. I've had to wear maternity clothes since 13 weeks. I blame my small torso and her long legs.
Stretch marks? I went quite a while without any, but these last few weeks have definitely done a number on my lower tummy. They are beginning to get long, but I don't mind them one bit.
Sleep: I wake up periodically throughout the night to readjust or go to the bathroom. I haven't hit my sleep deprived grumpy stage, so I'm sure I'm still get enough...for now.
Best moment this week: Anytime I feel her move. My mom was able to come to a ultrasound this week and we got to see her sucking on her toes! Please baby, start moving head down though, this momma can't handle you being breech.
Miss Anything? I miss fitting into my old clothes and my hips feeling like they are 25 instead of 80. Pregnancy is all worth the pain though, right?
Movement: Quite a bit, especially at night. It's the best feeling.
Food cravings: Oranges.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Eating too much makes me a bit queasy.
Gender: A girl!
Labor Signs: Nope! And praying it stays that way for another 6 weeks at least!
Symptoms: Oh lord. I can stand peeing my pants and the nasal congestion, but I'm ready for the hip and lower back pain to go.
Wedding rings on or off? I bought a larger ring to wear, but honestly forget to put it on on most days.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I've been pretty happy this pregnancy! Although there have been definite times of ugly crying, like when watching Parks and Rec or listening to an old Chris Young song. I don't know why.
Looking forward to: I can't wait to feel her on my chest and hold her. And to see how excited Tyler is when she is finally here.
