Pregnancy Survey

How far along? 31 weeks

weight gain/loss: Well, the dr. says 18. I say I gained some weight in between finding out I was pregnant and my first appointment. I say 25.

Maternity clothes? yep.

Stretch marks? None yet, I am hoping it stays that way. I know I am fighting a losing battle. But I still lube up the belly daily.

Sleep:Some nights are good, some are really bad. Luckily, I have more good.

Best moment this week: Just feeling him move. I will miss it. I love feeling him move no matter where I am or what I am doing.

Movement: He likes to punch mom's bladder

Food cravings: Does anyone have any pastries?

Gender: BOY!

Labor Signs: None, thank God.

Belly Button in or out? Way out, you can see it through my clothes.

What I miss: The things that I would not give a second thought to doing, like going tubing with the family in the mountains this past weekend. I was really disappointed.

What I am looking forward to: Meeting Aiden.

Weekly Wisdom: Thou shall never think a pregnant lady has it easy.

Milestones: 31 weeks is a great milestone. I feel more confident the longer Aiden continues to grow.

So I find symbolism in small places

I had a wonderful shower on May 30th. It was wonderful to get to spend time with the poeple I care about the most in this world.
Here are a few pics:

Now here are the pics when my best friends and I decided to get our husbands to take a photo of all of us.

Note to self: Get someone else's husband to take pics or get Jay photography lessons. We go through the same thing when we take my belly pics. I have Jay take 10 before I find one that will work.

After my shower I had to find some new homes for all of the goodies we recieved. Aiden is so lucky to have so many people that care about him. I went downstairs to find a spot for the baby bottles and accessories. Low and behold where is there room? Where my martini glasses are! SO I began to move my martini glasses to the top of the cabinet. Very symbolic don't you think? Martini glasses to baby bottles.
