How far along: 31 Weeks!! Holy crap guys. Remember when I was going to post weekly bumpdates? Oops. Things got a little busy these past couple of weeks, but here’s one… and right on time!
Also, only 9 weeks till the big due date. That’s pretty crazy, huh? Especially since time is literally just flying by. This little nugget will be here before I know it!
Total weight gain: I have an appointment with my OB on Monday, so the answer to this one will have to wait. How do I feel? Like I wish someone could walk around with me holding up my belly. That would help.
But really, I definitely don’t feel as pregnant as I look in photos. Every so often I see a photo or a mirror glance at a weird angle and I’m totally thrown off. Holy hell! Who is that?
I don’t recognize myself.
But that’s okay! The positive is that this baby is such a wiggler… makes me feel like we’re “spending time together.”
Maternity clothes: I bought a couple new shirts and a pair of faux leather leggings. Clearly a maternity must-have. I haven’t worn them yet, but maybe this weekend.
Stretch marks: Still going strong with no stretchies.
Sleep: Sleep has been on and off. Last night was an off night. Definitely could have done without my bout of insomnia from 3-5… but what can you do?
Best moment of this week: Well, these past few weekends have been great! I’ll post more about those in a separate post, but it’s been a happy week. Charlie turned 20 months, Mark and I celebrated 3 years… all good stuff!
Miss anything: Putting my socks on with ease.
Movement: The other night during our parenting class, my back was killing me. To get a little relief, I put my hands under my belly and essentially held it up with my hands. Apparently, the lift caused the little man to require a readjustment because he instantly made a huge movement. The cool part is that he moved in a way that it literally felt like he was in my hands… like I was holding him. I spent the rest of class trying to replicate the experience with no luck.
Food cravings: Nothing too crazy these days.
Anything making you queasy or sick: My toddler… but I don’t think that’s what this question is referring to. But dang it… C and I are cold-ridden again.
Have you started to show yet: Big ass belly.
Gender: A Mister.
Labor signs: Just the run-of-the-mill Braxton Hicks.
Belly button in or out: It’s a very strange crater-like inny outty. Don’t ask…
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Happy or moody most of the time: I’ve been good these past few weeks! We’ve had a lot of fun.
Looking forward to: We are celebrating our anniversary this weekend! Hot date with my hubs at a fancy shmance restaurant… what could be bad? Also looking forward to my OB appointment. I don’t know why, but I am. Hmmm. I am hoping to schedule a hair appointment, so that’s exciting, too! All good things.
That first photo is my life. lol You look great!!
She wanted to shut the door… Her favorite game…
I can’t believe how fast your pregnancy is going! (Or well, it’s going by fast for me, as I’m looking at your photo’s! Ha, ha!! Going through it might be a different story?). 🙂 You look SO great!!!
Thanks, darling! It’s actually whizzing by for me, too! I’m sure you will totally get this, but the whole toddler thing just sends time into warp speed.
