31 Weeks



How far along?  31 weeks.

How big is the baby this week?  Baby Center says he is is the size of  a coconut and that we should get ready for a growth spurt. I'm already feeling large and in charge, so this should get interesting.

Total Weight Gain?  19 pounds. 

Maternity Clothes?  Yes. I'm starting to seriously look forward to maxi dresses.  I'm so over pants.

Best Moment of the Week?  GETTING OUR HOUSE DONE! This is probably the best moment of this last month. Remodeling half your house while 7 months pregnant is not the smartest decision- just FYI. But now that it's done, I couldn't be happier.  It is so nice and clean looking and I'm thrilled that we won't have to mess with it post-baby.  We are so indebted to my parents for a solid week of help painting and making Home Depot runs in order to get it done. I'll post photos soon!

Trouble Sleeping?  I have slept like a rock- again this is mainly due to sheer exhaustion. 

Miss Anything?  Getting up and down off the floor without feeling like I need a forklift to assist. Again, don't remodel your house while 7 months pregnant. My job was to paint the trim down low since no one trusted me on a ladder. Needless to say, I got a good leg workout hoisting my body weight + 20 lbs up and down and up again.

Movement?  Tons. 

Food Cravings?  I FINALLY got my hands on Hazed and Confused ice cream from Ben & Jerry's. It was glorious. Not quite what I had imagined in my head, but still so good. Sweets in general are pretty delish these days.  Also: Schlotzsky's*. 

Belly Button - In or Out?  Mostly an outie with a touch of innie.

Symptoms?  Hungry and some back pain.

Wedding Ring - Off or on? On

Happy or Moody?  Happy! Having a freshly remodeled house to marvel at will do that to you.



Looking Forward to?  Finishing up the nursery and spending the weekend at Andrews Ranch with all my college girlfriends for Alex's bachelorette party. Sad that I'll be the lone sober one for the majority of the weekend, but you better believe I have my O'Douls packed and ready to go!  

*Before you judge me for eating lunchmeat, I ask them to run it through the toaster thingie twice to kill any possible baby-harming bacteria.

You look great! I'm so impressed you're tackling home renovations while pregnant - I know that has to be exhausting! But it will be so nice to feel settled when baby Graham arrives. Only 9 more weeks! Hope you'll keep sharing house pictures on IG - love seeing the progress! Makes me dream of tackling some projects at our house.

Have a great weekend!
