31 Weeks on the First Day of Summer!

What better way to celebrate the first day of summer and the start of my 2 week vacation than a day at our cousin’s pool!  I’ve discovered that it feels delightful, yes, delightful to be in the pool.  I almost forget I’m pregnant!  Plus, I can still rock a 2-piece! (Bought @ Target)  When will there be another time when I don’t have to suck in and flex my beautiful abs!

31 weeks

How far along?  31 days

Total weight gain:  I don’t even care…

Maternity clothes?:  Yes, dressing more comfortably now that I’m on vacation for 2 weeks!  Dresses & tank-tops, summer has decided to rear it’s ugly face this week!

Have you started to show yet:  Unless you’re blind, you can see me from space!

Symptoms:  Back tightness & hip flexor soreness/pain…ow 😦

Stretch marks?:  I can’t see any!

Sleep:  Not bad, back to taking naps during the day too.  (sometimes 2/day!)

Best moment this week:  Feeling her move more often & watching hubby’s reaction when she does!  We also celebrated our 2nd anniversary yesterday and it’s hard to believe we are about to embark on this wonderful journey together! (very soon I might add).

Miss Anything?  Getting out of bed or off the couch on my own free will.  I can do it, but it’s just annoying!!!

Movement:  Yes, it seems like more and more in the last week, and you can now see when she has the hiccups!

Food cravings:  Nothing too crazy really…

Anything making you queasy or sick:  I love strawberries, but they don’t seem to agree with my stomach anymore…

Gender: Girl

Labor Signs:  I don’t think so, but my stomach tends to get tighter at night time, probably telling me to slow down and relax!

Belly Button in or out?  Flat as can be!

Wedding rings on or off?  Still on!

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Starting to get moments of shear panic and anxiety, but still very happy and excited!  (It could have something to do with the fact that my FIL & husband have decided to rip our condo apart and do some last minute renovations before the baby comes!)

10 Fingers!!!

30 weeks

Don’t you remember as a kid when you could finally count down the days (in this case weeks) on two hands, 10 days until Christmas, ten days left of school, 10 days til our wedding, vacation, whatever!  You just know you are one step closer to Nirvana!  Well it’s hard to believe I’m already there; 10 weeks (10 fingers) to go until my due date.  Now she’s going to come when she pretty much pleases, but it’s crazy to think that these 40 weeks have almost flown by!

How far along?  30 days

Total weight gain:  28 lbs…but does it really matter at this point…this is a stupid question anyways :p

Maternity clothes?:  Still mixing, but from here on out I think dresses & skirts/shorts are only going to be wore!!!

Have you started to show yet:  Haha Yes.

Symptoms:  Back & hip pain still, but I’ve been stretching, walking/exercising helps, massages from hubby & the heating pad have been great!

Stretch marks?:  Been very lucky thus far!

Sleep:  What’s that???  Naps are great, but I don’t know if I have too much on my mind or there is such thing as pregnancy insomnia, but I have it!!!

Best moment this week:  Feeling her have the hiccups for the first time!!! And now she gets them at least twice a day!  We also heard her heartbeat at our last appointment and everything seems to be going very well!!!

Miss Anything?  Bending over to pick things up & getting up by myself from laying down too.

Movement:  I was worried this past week, but every since last Wednesday she has been moving & shaking!

Food cravings:  I’ve noticed I’ve gone through many phases through my pregnancy…this phase involves a lot more sweets…but nothing that really stands out.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Eating too fast or citrus/caffeine makes my heart skip a beat!

Gender: Girl & we are desperately trying to figure out a name, IT’S SO HARD!

Labor Signs:  No, but it’s scary to think (excuse me, exciting to think) that in a couple of weeks my answer might change!

Belly Button in or out?  Flat and hubby pointed out this morning it’s making it’s move out…

Wedding rings on or off?  Still on!

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Very happy & extremely grateful & lucky!!!  My parents are coming up in less than a month, my twin sissy will be here too, then the whole-damn-fam will be in the same state once again!  I can’t wait!
