Bump Day -- 31 Weeks

How far along? 31 weeks

Weight gain/loss: This week: Nada. Thank. God. Total: 20 pounds. Yuck.

Maternity Clothes? Yes. And those scrubs that were falling down merely 6 weeks ago now practically cut off the circulation in my hips and thighs. Why is it my thighs and ass need to be getting wider?? Last time I checked they had NOTHING to do with my growing baby.

Dear thighs, you were big enough before I was pregnant, no need to get bigger. Please stop.
Mrs. E.

Sleep: Not bad. It would help if our bedroom wasn't so stinkin' hot. Murphy's Law would have it be the ONLY room in the house that's hot as hades....maybe I'll start sleeping in the guest room.

Stretch marks: No

Best moment this week: Having 3 days off was pretty fantastic!

Movement: Slowing down a bit but still pretty active....I imagine he'll start running out of room in there soon.

Food cravings: Dairy Queen ice cream cake which I will be getting Sunday for my birthday! Yay!

Gender: Snips and snails and puppy dog tails (anyone else not really get this nursery rhyme?)

Labor Signs: So I think I finally felt one of those Braxton Hicks contractions everyone talks about...and let me tell you, they're not painless. Unless you feel no pain when it seems someone's jabbed a knife in your side. I had a few over the weekend but nothing since. If this is a preview of real labor...I'm in for a rude awakening!

Belly Button in or out? In. I think at this point I'm in the clear.

What I Miss: My ankles. Somewhere in the last week or so I've lost all resemblence of an ankle bone. I noticed it for this first time while getting a pedicure, I now officially have cankles. Great.

What I'm looking forward to: Actually finishing the nursery this weekend. Well the painting part at least. This project has drug on loooong enough and it's time to get moving!

Weekly Wisdom: When you get random bouts of energy....take advantage of them!
Milestones: Had my first "I don't want to be pregnant anymore" moment. If you can call that a milestone. I think the heat has finally gotten to me...and I fear it's only going to get worse.

Yay for no gain last week! You crack me up talking about thighs and cankles. I know when my time comes I’ll be feeling the same way.

Good luck with the nursery and I cannot wait to see pics!
