31 weeks!

31 weeks down, 9 to go... holy single digits batman!? Today marks two months to the day [aka 61 days and counting] until sweet pea is due! I'm so freaking excited/nervous/ready... oh yes, and I'm huge. huuuuuge. big belly in the house. I can definitely feel the extra weight I've put when I try and do any sort of phsyical activity [including simply walking from my parking garage to my office]... I think baby j is hanging out on my sciatic nerve too because I've been having some bad leg/hip pain when I walk, fun. You know what though? It's all worth it! She's definitely getting big in there though -- I can clearly see Sweet Pea moving from the outside of my stomach now - even with a shirt on [when its tight/form fitting]... so strange!

It's been a good 31st week...we had a great weekend with Josh & Tiffani - they came up our way and hung out around town with us on Saturday and then on Sunday we headed down to Athens and had brunch with them at Farm255 [amaaazing]. It was a fun low-key two days with them - I'm going to be so sad when they move away in May... luckily I have a feeling we'll be pretty busy/distracted in May!  anyways, this week hasn't been too eventful other than working like crazy and getting DJ ready for his trip. I'm still not sleeping great, and it was even worse the past two nights without DJ here [insert sad pouty face here].

we went to our newborn care class on Monday and it wasn't too bad - just pretty basic stuff but good to hear again none-the-less... also, we're officially childbirth class dropouts. I emailed our instructor yesterday and told her we weren't going to make the last two classes - she sent me what they'll be covering so I'm just going to do some research and try and cover them myself... as terrible as it is, I feel like that is going to be a much MUCH better use of my time!

here are the 31st week stats...

  • baby j is currently the size of a pineapple, whaat! she's weighing between 2.5 to 3.8lbs... when you see how big my stomach is you're probably going to agree with me that she's probably closer to 3.8. hah. seriously. she's also measuring between 15.2-16.7 inches... nutso!
  • I've still been drinking OJ like it's going out of style... and I haven't had soda in weeks [since I "quit" cold turkey].
  • Tiff & Josh gave us a super sweet gift for the nursery... I might share it with you soon but then again it would be a pretty big hint towards Sweet Pea's name soooo we'll see... maybe next week. hah.
  • heartburn has been my worst enemy this past week. I've never had it before getting pregnant... it's seriously NOT fun?! who knew.

31 week bumpin' bump... enjoy the bathroom self-portrait... no photographer this week and I'm too lazy to setup the tripod...

31st week snapshots...

beautiful flowers from my love ~ 90s music while playing board games ~ newborn class ~ DJ's new grownup suitcase all packed up and ready to go...

....and the many faces of adorable ollie this past week....
so that's that. 
31 weeks down, 9 to go!
one more week closer to meeting our sweet pea!

I had Olivia right at 39 weeks... so be prepared *in case* you go early! ;) I also had horrible heartburn with her from the day I conceived until a few hours after I had her. Fortunately- she was born with a bunch of hair so it wasn't all for nothing! HAHA! ;)

I also had a huge craving for orange juice and even now, I can't function without a glass of orange juice every morning- it's so weird, it's like my coffee.

You look adorable! 31-32 weeks was what I considered the worst for me. I felt so big but I still had two months to go which felt like forever! BUT it did go fast and now I have a three year old. Dont blink!

Love your Kate Spade iPhone case! I remember feeling so big toward the end... Like, so big that my longest shirts were starting to get too short. Happy 31 weeks (a little late)!
