31 weeks. Whoa. 9 weeks left (give or take). Nine. Single digits. That is feeling close. The good news is we have a name - Lainey Reese. YAY! She has this chalkboard in her nursery and also a really big L that will hang above the changing table.
How Far Along: 31 Weeks
Baby's Size: Coconut
Maternity Clothes: Yep! Loving all things stretchy :)
Movement: Lots of movement. The other night she was doing something crazy. I almost got worried she might have flipped head up because it felt like something wild was going on inside me. But I still feel the usual movement all around my mid belly area so I think she is still head down.
Sleep: Great. Althought it takes a ton of effort now to flip sides or get out of bed. It seems like my belly weighs a thousand pounds.
Symptoms: I feel good, just tired and heavy all the time. I am so thankful for the expectant mother parking spot at Kroger. When I step out of the car and it is approximately 250 degrees outside and I lift my 27 pound toddler and rest her on my enourmous bump I am glad I don't have to walk far because my legs barely work in this August heat. My feet swell a tiny bit by the end of the day but really not bad at all. I am so thankful for this because when I was working full time during my first pregnancy they were crazy huge (due to sitting at a desk all day). I still get braxton hicks throughout the day. I haven't gotten the linea nigra yet but I am expecting it soon.
Food Aversions/Cravings: Nothing new really.
Best Moment this Week: Meeting Lindsay's baby boy.
What I miss: Having energy, being able to maneuver easily, sleeping on my back and tummy.
What I am Looking Forward to: Celebrating my Dad's Aunt Thelma's 90th birthday this weekend and seeing lots of family.
Goals: We painted the chalkboard and the L for Lainey's room. I haven't bought storage bins for under the crib yet but plan to go this afternoon to get them. I haven't bought any props for Lainey's newborn photos yet either. There are just too many options on Etsy. Ok, so this week's goal is to buy newborn photo props.
