31 Weeks

This week I officially have been pregnant for 7 months!
I had been keeping my eye on June 27, 2012 (Wednesday) for a bit now, since that was the 7 month mark.
Now I just got less than 2 months till I meet him, unless of course he wants to stay in me longer than 40 weeks...lets hope not!
  31 weeks, 1 day.
 Top: Ann Taylor Loft Maternity
Undershirt: Shade Clothing Maternity
Grey capris: Motherhood Maternity
Elephant Bracelet: Asia

How Far Along: 31 weeks, 4 days. 3rd trimester! As of today there are 59 days until the due date!
Size of the Baby: Head of lettuce, 3.9 lbs, 19 inches long!
Maternity Clothes: Awesome...I feel like I wear the same things over and over again though...and the temperature has been in the high 90's these days, so that is less than awesome. I wish I had more flowy breathable clothes haha.
Stretch marks: No. 
Weight gain/loss: 21 lbs.? I guess I'll see at my 32 week appointment on Monday! It looks like I'll end up in the higher range of the 'healthy recommended pregnancy weight gain' but hey, I'd rather gain a little too much (although I'm still in the healthy range) than not enough, since that can be bad for baby (can't tell you what is bad but I've read things). But he is healthy and that is all that matters!
Sleep: It is okay. I feel like I've been getting more tired lately and wanting to go to bed before midnight lol, like at 10 pm. I've also been keeping INSANELY busy doing 100 things a day! I think I am working myself too hard but I have to since I have so many things to get done. With the intense heat, I've been sleeping with a fan on me and that has been pretty awesome. And we do have air conditioning...but I'm still hot, so the fan helps.
Best Moment of the Week: Feeling our baby boy moving! Apparently some people have to do 'kick counts' to see if their baby is moving enough but I sure don't have to. He moves ALL THE TIME so it isn't even necessary. I wonder if he will be insanely active and wear me out after birth because he sure is active in my belly haha.
Movement: See above.
Symptoms: Leg cramps/sore calves, sciatica, back pain, heartburn (I call them heartburn attacks since I will lay down to go to sleep and then I will get attacked!), and tired feet...think that is basically it. Oh, and sadly the gag reflux is back...and in the morning I've been gaggy...yeah...not my favorite!
Food Cravings: You know what is bomb. Drumstick ice-cream cones...especially the vanilla ones with caramel in them. They are awesome. I had one at my parents the other day. Also, loving trail mix as usual and not sure what else.
Gender: BOY!
Belly Button in or out: Still in but I swear our son is trying to make it come out. He keeps pushing on it or around it...I'm serious ha.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Ummm gag reflux lol.
Labor Signs: Nope!
Wedding ring on or off: I have decided to not wear my wedding ring/band anymore :( It still fits but I am just paranoid of it getting stuck and having it get cut off (heard of that before)...so I wear random rings of mine hehe.
What I miss: A healthy non-aching back...that day will be awesome, if I ever get it back...
What I am looking forward to: Meeting our guy!
Nursery: Kevin painted the nursery last week. We set up the nightstand  and actually have to exchange our Pottery Barn Kids crib because the mattress didn't fit (apparently we got a rare defective one, just our luck!) and are waiting on the extra wide dresser. I bought a La-Z-Boy chair and that will arrive next Tuesday I think! We are getting some shelves at Ikea tonight for his room and I got some storage things at Target for the closet last night...once we have the furniture, things will fall into place! Oh, and Kevin will do some touch up paint work soon :)
Emotions: Good?
Stupid things I have done: Not sure.

What are you up to this weekend?

PS. We have a giveaway coming up...so be prepared!

  2. I love your updates. I love that shirt too. I really want to see your baby's room. It sounds really nice! Don't worry, he will wear you out no matter how active he is! :) But in a fun way! Get cabinet locks! It happens fast!
