Week 31 Update

{At my baby shower with Lindsay, Robin, & Amanda}
How far along?  31 Weeks (+1 day)

Weight Gain: +A LOT.  I'll weigh in next week at the doc.  My friends and family have been so supportive, and I'm so grateful to friends who have shared their weight gain stories.  It's tough being a girl sometimes!

Maternity Clothes: I found a super cute dress for my baby shower at A Pea in the Pod.  I'm looking forward to the day when I enjoy shopping for clothes again!  It was quite a task! :)

Stretch Marks:  Nothing new.

Sleep:  I've slept great the past few nights!  We've been so incredibly busy that I'm worn out and getting deep sleep.  If I get up 2-3 times a night to go to the bathroom, I'm happy!  It's the nights where I have to go 5-6 times that are tough on my body!

Best moment this week:  MY BABY SHOWER!  I can't even begin to tell you how incredible it was.  Every detail was absolutely perfect!  I am so grateful to my three hostesses Lindsay, Amanda, & Robin!  They made my day so amazing and special.  I'm so glad so many of my great friends were there to celebrate with me!  I missed a few of my girls (and my Mama) but I'm grateful to everyone who could attend.  Reed got so many AWESOME books and presents.  I'm going to enjoy organizing everything in the nursery this week!  Yay!

Missing anything?  Clothes that fit...

Movement:  TONS of movement this week.  His kicks and movements are very distinct now.  I can "see" his movements when I'm laying down.  He is sleeping in longer spurts now, so his movements come in waves...Nothing for a few hours and then BUNCHES of kicks all in a row!  Love the feeling, even though it tickles at times!  

Food Cravings:  Girl Scout Cookies & steak salad (I'm back on that...) 

Sickness/Symptoms:  Cracked rib!  I had a coughing spell last Wednesday when I was on the elliptical at the gym.  It's incredibly painful, and there isn't much I can do for it, except for ice and Tylenol.  It should heal in about a month-- well before Reed's arrival!  Ouch!

Labor Signs: No, but I did have a dream that I had Reed last night.  It was pretty easy in my dream.  =)

Belly Button:  Gigantic.

Wedding Rings On/Off:  On but tough to get off!  I'll just keep them on!

Moods:  Happy, excited, and grateful to my wonderful family and friends!

Looking forward to:  Kandra's baby shower on Saturday.  I'm also excited to organize the shower gifts in the nursery!!  
Celebrating with Kristin & Michelle
 Adorable & DELICIOUS cupcakes!
 Soooo many presents for the baby!
Darling centerpieces!  Wish I could keep them for forever!
Onesies decor!
 UppaBaby Cruz stroller (and cup holder!)  I can't wait to drive my baby around in this bad boy!
J.J. hadn't even finished putting the stroller together before Boise made herself at home.  She enjoyed being pushed around.  Such a cutie!
