31 weeks

How far along: 31 weeks!  

Size of baby: A pineapple! He is getting close to his birth length now but he will still double or triple in weight. My doctor says he is probably 3-4 pounds now but we will find out his "exact" weight on the ultrasound next Tuesday! 

Total weight gain/loss: Don't know exactly...close to 30 pounds and kind of over it. It is what it is at this point. 

Maternity clothes: Yessss and no. Most of my lounge type hang around the house clothes are non-maternity.   

Gender: Sweet baby boy! James Austin Green!

Movement: Still lots of that going on. Austin felt his little arms and legs this week and thought it was SO cool. Super fun tracing out his little body! 

Sleep: Sleep is ok I could definitely be worse. My arm has been ok for the most part and I don't really get up to pee, just toss and turn a lot and struggle to get comfortable sometimes.   

What I miss: My normal body size. I'm just large. And in charge. 

Cravings: Still loving milk. I love lots of yogurt and fruit and pass on most meats. 

Best moment this past week: Got our stroller today! We got a Bob and I think I'm really going to love it. So excited to roll little James around in that!  

Symptoms: The carpel tunnel is by far my worst preggo symptom. It is so annoying and painful and I can't wait for it to be over. I'm thankful to not have heart burn or sciatica pain or any of those awful symptoms. 

What I'm looking forward to:We have our hospital tour on Thursday and I'm pretty excited about that. I know it's going to feel so real being in those L&D rooms! 

Milestones: All 5 senses are working now! 

Mood: happy and crying at the drop of a hat. Mostly happy tears thank goodness!      

Labor Signs: no but I am having Braxton Hicks contractions. Only 5 more weeks until he is considered full term!

Wedding rings on or off: on

The nursery is almost finished! Still waiting on the gilder to go in that left corner and we will be all set. Now we need a baby!!

The frames over the crib are empty for now...we are going to put black and white photos from James' newborn session. I'm sure we will take one or two, don't you think? :)
