31 weeks (baby #2)







31 weeks - baby is the size of celery 
She weighs 3.2 pounds and is about 18 inches long


How far along: 31 weeks!
Swelling: No
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Sleep is okay, I think due in part to my exhaustion - even though I struggle with getting comfortable, I'm usually so tired, I pass out no matter what.
Best moment of the week:  We had such a fun day at Magic Kingdom this week - Phil met us there after work, we rode a few rides, meet a few characters and princess, and ended the night with dinner at the elusive Be Our Guest restaurant! Such fun restaurant, great service and yummy food! After dinner, Harper got to meet The Beast, and when she met him, she bowed to him before dancing. I tell ya, my heart literally exploded into a million pieces right then and there! Such great memories.
Worst moment of the week: Broken record - but I've been pretty nauseous a few days this week with some throwing up. O-V-E-R it!
Running/Workouts: Knocked out four miles this week at 30.1 weeks - the rest of the week was a mixture of a mile or two, some elliptical and then weights. Feeling good.
Missing anything: I miss not having the sensation of having to pee all the time, which is obviously worse when working out. I miss my bladder control, too! Haha - tmi perhaps...
Movement: I feel her so often, all day long. I was able to get a sneak peak at her this week with an ultrasound and thankfully she is head down!! With all the movement I've been feeling, I was worried she was transverse (sideways) or something crazy,.
Things that make me queasy/recent cravings: Nothing has sounded too appetizing this week - eating the same old things usually. Throw up at least 3-5 times/week now.
Energy level:  Pretty low this week - I've just been a lazy bum
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Mood: Oh so happy
Looking forward to: I think I'm gonna start going through baby clothes this week - and now that we finally have furniture in the nursery, I'm actually excited about doing some baby laundry and getting things organized. Hello, nesting!
Something surprising about being pregnant with baby #2:  I just can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going by now. Oh how I wish I could just pause time or at least slow it down a bit. I relish in the moments when Harper lays next to me and snuggles with my belly. Everything is just falling into place right now that I am overwhelmed with love and gratitude for this life I'm living. I say this every week, but I just LOVE being pregnant, and I'm truly loving every single part of it!
