I can't believe we're getting so close! It's kind of freaking me out because I feel like there's still so much to do. I have a list of things I want done (mostly organizing) and I still need to pack my hospital bag just in case. I've been working so much lately that I just haven't had the time to do much else. Not complaining, I want to make as much money as I can before baby comes because I'll be taking a much needed break :)
Week 30 was really good! I am activity days leader for my church calling and it was my turn for the activity. We made homemade ice cream and it actually worked! We did the kind where you shake it in a bag of ice. I think the girls liked it too! I also shot my second to last wedding on Saturday and it went really well (thanks to having Millie come along to help me!). It was also my sisters birthday and they turned super 7. They are getting too old :( AND I taught relief society on Sunday! The lesson went really well and I feel so accomplished from last week (and feeling a little tired from it too haha). Unfortunately I think I worked a little too hard and had some major pain Sunday-Tuesday. But I'm back to normal with minimal pain and I can't complain too much!
Yesterday (during week 31) I was having kind of a lame day and we need to go grocery shopping because there isn't much left to eat in the house. Well pregnant ladies minus food kind of get grouchy and hormonal haha ;) I was really craving fruit and these turkey sandwiches I like to make and so we called the meat counter at Harmons at around 9pm to see if they were still open. They were just barely closing up and that made me so mad. And sad. I totally bawled my eyes out over it. Luckily Carson is patient and decided to grill me a frozen piece of chicken and it was seasoned so yummy. I felt bad because we don't really have good outdoor lighting so he was basically out there in the dark grilling my chicken up haha! We watched The Secret Life of Pets and ate our chicken. I felt a lot better. Being hormonal is scary and I have no control haha!
Today I went and got my turkey from Harmons and a few groceries, yay! I also went and bought more maternity garments because I'm tired of tight anything. Today 2 different people while I was out thought I was due way sooner than I am. I just laughed, because I don't look THAT big! I mean, I feel big, but I know I still have a bit to grow! Baby needs to pack on 3-5 more lbs! They were both men so I didn't take it personally ;)
Last week we got a lot of stuff hung up in the nursery and it's almost completed! I had my good friend Kassi hem my curtains and they look absolutely perfect. I am having his name cut out in wood to go above his crib and a few other wood pieces being made... and having my super talented artist friend Kate paint Jupiter to go above his dresser. I am really excited to have a lot of friends and people I know contributing their talents to his nursery. It makes it feel more personal to me and I love supporting small businesses. So be prepared for a full tour in photos of his room! <3
As far as baby goes, Ollie is doing good in there I think! He moves constantly, always pushing and stretching so my belly looks lopsided all the time haha. He hasn't crowded my lungs or ribs yet and when I lay down I can push on the top of my belly and feel that it's hollow. It's WEIRD. Just stretched skin over nothing underneath it. I assume he'll fill that space soon enough.
Some of the things I've been saying to him this week are "You're disgusting." and "Stop being so gross!" haha! Poor boy. The way he moves sometimes just freaks me out but I would rather him be moving all the time like he is than not at all. One morning I noticed he wasn't being a crazy psycho so I got a little worried and laid down to move him around with my hands. He started to move and all was well, and so I said out loud "ok, you're alive, go back to sleep and stop being gross!" haha! Don't worry, I love him.
How far along? Currently 31 weeks and 2 days
How big is the peanut? 30 weeks he was a zuchini and 31 he's asparagus (or a head of romaine lettuce)
Total weight gain/loss? I am 1.5 lbs up from my pre pregnancy weight. Total gain of 17.5 lbs
Maternity clothes? Yes! I bought some more garments today :)
Sleep? Good! I am still propped up because my back is the most comfortable. This also for some reason relieves pressure on my bladder and the baby and I don't have to get up as often.
Best moment this week? Week 30? hmm... attending my sisters birthday party! Week 31 we have yet to go through the whole week so I can't really answer that yet. We are planning on going to Kolob to canoe on the lake but it depends on what the weather will do.
Symptoms? Heartburn... I had major pelvic pain to where it was really difficult to walk but that's over now after much resting. hmm... oh my gosh a crazy amount of gas this week! That could have contributed to my pelvic pain too. It scares the baby too, I was laughing so hard at 4:30 in the morning because he would jump every time. I know, TMI.
Food cravings? Just good food. I love all the food. I get really sick if I don't keep eating so honestly anything. I love eating granola cereal right now!
Food aversions? Nope!
Labor signs? Hmm... nothing really!
Belly button in or out? I don't know anymore. It's both. haha.
What I miss? Moving quickly!
What I'm looking forward to? Next week we have our 32 week dr appointment and we get to see him on the ultrasound again! Last one before he gets too big to see!
Bump? Yes! People think I'm due already. Sheesh!
