I am a blog post thief... :)

...but, I found this quite interesting. Let me know if you do as well. :)

How far along? 32 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Haha - no way I am putting that number in black and white. Let's just say, I am still in the recommended window of weight gain...

Maternity clothes? Yes! I just got some new ones today - rather humorous that all the shirts are black...

Stretch marks? Knock on wood - cocoa butter lotion is my best friend.

Sleep: Sleep? Really? When do I do that?

Best moment this week: is kind of annoying, but kind of funny at the same time - Baby B plays a game with me. I push his/her foot/leg or something of the sorts out of my rib - as soon as I remove my hand, it quickly goes back in the "rib position". Other than that, I have LOTS of movement.

Movement: TONS. I can tell that they are running out of room a bit. The movement isn't so herky jerky anymore...I love watching my belly move.

Food cravings: No cravings persay, but I have noticed a definite increase in hunger. :) And yes, I ate pickled beets for breakfast this week. :)

Gender: No idea. I have had a few dreams of a blonde curly haired baby - not necessarily boy or girl.

Labor Signs: Lots of Braxton Hicks. Not fun.

Belly Button in or out? Haha - in for now, be sure to check next week - I believe it is on the way out.

What I am looking forward to: Meeting this lil' peanut. We can't wait.

Weekly Wisdom:
Wisdom? That resides in my mind - of which, I have temporarily lost... :)

Polka Dots

Yay! Finally, the dots are on the wall! :) I actually just got the valance today too. That will be going up shortly...



So - updates. We are at 31.5 weeks. I am going every other week to the Doc now. Needless to say, stepping on the scale every other week is tending to be a scary occurrence. I SWEAR that thing is incorrect. Blah. Baby/belly is measuring right on. I haven't take a picture of myself since the last post. I am not sure if one is in my future... :)

I know that I meant to includes LOTS of info for you all - I am also aware that my mind has left me...I will post again soon.

We are trying to get Cal used to all of this Baby stuff. She is getting accustomed to the music coming from the bassinet, she has sniffed the onesies over and over and over and - I believe that she is going to be a pretty good watch dog...

Now - we are counting DOWN...

Blah - what a gross night outside. Rain, rain, go away...

So yes, we are now COUNTING DOWN! We have just over 11 weeks until we meet Baby B. I plan on painting some polka dots on one wall in his/her room this weekend. Brad will be out of town, so I just need to get myself off the damn couch... :) I am not sure why the walls in the Babe's room look white in the photos - they are actually "fennel" - a light sage green color.

Papa Brad did get the crib together - and the dresser/changing table completed also. He is quite the husband! I believe the crib took less than a 6-pack!

Believe it or not, I do have another belly pic. I am so not fond of these whatsoever...this was just the other morning. I am not sure that I was entirely awake. I am still all belly and boobs (those can stop any time now...). And yes, I am still large and in charge. There has been TONS of movement. I can't decide if he/she likes high kicks, kick ball or karate is a toss up.

Hope you all have a nice weekend! XOXO
