31 Weeks (and 3 days)!

Today I am 31 Weeks and 3 days! I suppose that I could have waited until tomorrow to do this post. I have an appointment with the specialist tomorrow morning and I'll have new pictures to share of our little guy! I'm so excited to see how much he weighs now. 3 weeks ago he was 2 pounds 15 ounces. Surely he's at least 3 and a half pounds by now right?

This is me from this morning. I convinced Bobby that we had 2 extra minutes before leaving for church to take my belly picture. Any later in the day and I would have been MUCH more worse for wear! :)

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 31 glorious weeks!

Size of Baby: I will find out tomorrow and post the exact measurements as soon as I get home. (I promise to become a much better blogger and update much more frequently than I have been doing.)

Total Weight Gain: I'm sure that it's a lot. I'll also find this out tomorrow. This bit of info I will be sure to NOT post. (unless I haven't gained a pound...yeah right...then you all will be the first to know about it!)

Maternity Clothes: You will all be  happy to know that I finally went and found myself some new tank-tops and 1 new pair of shorts. I was out doing a little school clothes shopping for Graham and found that Kohls had GREAT deals on summer maternity clothes!

Gender: Still a little boy!

Movement: This little guy is still making me CRAZY with his inconsistent movement. I'm trying to find the common element on his "bad days". Like, "Did I forget to take my pre-natal vitamins today?" or "How much water have I had to drink?" When I feel like he's not moving enough to satisfy me I drink as much water as I can stand and it usually helps a little.

Sleep: I sleep really good most nights! Every once in a while I still get a random night where I'm awake half the night. This pregnancy has been pretty good on sleep. I attribute that to the awesome new mattress Bobby and I purchased a year and a half ago. (random note: I will forever cheap out on everything else but NEVER on my mattress ever again. Sleep is just way too important!)

What I Miss: Nothing at the moment!

Cravings: Coke Icees! I love them in this heat!

Symptoms: My feet and calves are starting to swell almost everyday now in this heat. Ick. Also just a little bit of heartburn.

Best Moment This Week: The best thing this week was just making it through this week (that and getting to spend time with my awesome little guys - SEE BELOW :)

These are my sweet sweet boys after church today. They are the joys of my life and I can't wait until this time next year to have a 3rd little boy in these pictures!

In regards to his movements- where is your placenta? In one of my pregnancies, it was on the front, and it really prevented me from feeling a lot of the movements when the baby kicked in that direction.

And HOORAY for 31 weeks!
