Pregnancy: 31 Weeks ... Pineapple sized baby!

The blog is a little wonky this week because I did it on my phone... We gave up TV for Lent, so we also don't have the Internet. I have been going to my moms to blog each week, but I didn't go over there bear with us :)

How far along? 31 Weeks 2 days ... The countdown is officially in single digit weeks. Woah!
Total weight gain/loss: 30 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yes, yes, yes... And I would like bigger ones lol!
Stretch Marks? My chest has them, but the belly is still pretty clear. I have lots of bright blue veins, though.
Sleep: I am waking up multiple times a night now, and at 7:00 this morning I could not for the life of me get myself back to sleep.
Best moment(s) this week: First cheer practice of the season! Sam and I also had a wonderful meal at my moms (she made pancakes by our special request, and she laughed and laughed that they were what we wanted)! We journeyed up to see one of our students play ice hockey, and today we were able to finish about 99% of our house!!! I went to the gym today and walked on the treadmill.. Woohoo!
Miss Anything? I miss laying on my belly.
Movement: Yes! He makes little roller coaster waves ripple across my belly. It is a very strange thing to watch for a first time mom!
Food cravings: I am still loving milk.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just the heartburn really.
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: No... I keep telling him May, baby, May baby hey!
Symptoms: The heartburn is rough! My back is doing funny things where it really hurts. Some swollen ankles this week, but loads of water and some walking has helped all weekend.
Belly Button in or out? Innish? Flat really
Wedding rings on or off? On for now... Fingers are getting a little bigger. Now, I am thankful for not resizing my ring!
Happy or Moody most of the time? I am a deliriously happy girl. I cannot believe how fortunate I am. My husband is awesome and has been taking stellar care of everything lately! Also, there is so much good stuff coming up. Ok that all being said... I am not a nice person when I get hungry anymore. Something happens and I go into this other place... Rar! Feed me! Haha :)
Looking forward to: There is so much to look forward to! Our friend's wedding is this weekend. Baby shower is coming up. Spring break is on the horizon. What a wonderful life!!!!! Praise The Lord!

This giving up TV thing is actually pretty awesome! I really don't mind it. I have been productive, and I think it has kept Sam and I focused on God and each other! (Which was the whole purpose...I know) But really I suggest giving up the TV even if its just for a week :)


  1. Now THATS being active. Good job. I'm looking forward to walking more and a treadmill looks like a good idea. says pretty much any treadmill will fit since its only used for walking. Which one would you suggest?

    p.s. who drew that very detailed picture of a pineapple?

  2. I just use the treadmill at the local gym, so I'm not sure what kind it is. Sorry!
    And I drew the pineapple :) I have definitely gotten a little more skilled at the chalkboard art as time has gone by.
