31 weeks...

how far along: 31 weeks

weight gained: 18 lbs (this time around with sweet cheeks i had gained 19 lbs, funny how close the two pregnancies are)

maternity clothes: yup and those are even starting to feel small. my belly is quite round and my shirts feel like they are barely covering it.

stretch marks: yippy! NO!!!

belly button in: nope. i have 100% lost my belly button. can't find it anywhere.

baby movement: definitely. i feel her all the time. she is quite the gymnast. it often feels like either her elbow or her heel is coming out of my side. kind of strange feeling. the husband got to feel it the other night too. makes me wonder what position she is in.

cravings: yoohoo and chocolate eclair ice cream bars. yummy! explains the 18 lbs i guess.

aversions: still the same restaurant... just the smell of it.

next appt: monday, mar 7th

update from last appt: the doc i saw isn't my fav. she made me feel rushed. i had my gestational diabetes test and my antibody test, both of which came back fine. this doctor went ahead and scheduled my c-section for april 25th. i am hoping to avoid a c-section all together. i am going to ask my (favorite) doctor at this coming appt if they will at least push the c-section date off until may 2nd, as i'd prefer it after my due date to give me the chance to go into labor naturally. we'll see what he says.

symptoms: currently i have a cold. blah. sleeping is still sporadic due to leg/foot cramps. and reflux... oh my gosh... the reflux!!! it is so horrible. i avoid bending over at all costs because of it.

nursery: it looks so beautiful. i already shared a pic of the new paint, which is gray on 3 walls and gray/white stripes on one wall. the nursery now has a crib, dresser(need to go get these knobs for it though from anthro), and table in it. i need to get a mattress for the crib. holy cow are there a lot to choose from. i feel overwhelmed every time i start researching the topic.

gear: i got an ergo baby sport carrier in blue. not the color i probably would have chosen, but babysteals.com had it one day for a great price so i had to take it. i have heard lots of good things about these carriers, so i hope baby girl and i both like it.

and finally my belly shots

big and round... i'm talking about my belly here!

WOw, your belly is so round. You are gorgeous! I hope you can move your c-section, since like you said, gives your body a chance to maybe do it's own thing.

love the pics- you do look great! I hope your fave dr lets you labor and have a vbac too!! I saw the ergo on there that day and meant to email you- glad you got it for a steal ;)
