31 weeks and 5 days Pregnancy Highlights

 William took my 31.5 week profile picture using my Iphone.  It's pretty good for a 4 year old photographer, but kind of hard to see the "bigness" since I am wearing all black.   Today we are having an ice storm and now it is snowing.  Gotta love winter around here.

 31 weeks and 5 days Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: Almost 32 weeks
Size of baby: Baby B is the size of a sack of potatoes
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Total of 24 lbs so far. Lost 1 lb at this last appointment. 
Maternity Clothes: I'm wearing my maternity dresses with my boots and leggings. My black pants are also a staple.  The sweaters are in full force too.
Gender: IT IS A GIRL!
Movement:  She likes having a party at night.  I feel her the most in the evenings once I finally sit down.  She's also made more of a racket when I first try to fall asleep.
Sleep: I sleep on my left side and wake up a few times in the night to readjust myself.  I have had a heck of a time with congestion at night.  I am stuffed up and have a hard time breathing through my nose.  It's worse this go round than with William.  My legs have also given me a few Charlie Horses which are so painful!  I also have a muscle on the left side that aches down by my pelvis and hip. 
What I miss: jogging, but I stay active with William. Climbing 42 stairs to my door everyday, several times a day is also handy.  I also miss having lots of energy.  I tend to have to pace myself more often and do a few tasks before sitting down for a bit.
Cravings: meat sandwiches from Quiznos, eggs, fruit, orange juice, a surge in the sweet tooth, but I am mostly hungry for just 3 meals a day. 
Best Moment this week: Just thinking how close we are getting to meet our little lady!  8 weeks and counting!
