31 Week Bumpdate!

 Here we are at our church shower.... 
29 Weeks and 5 Days

Beach trip with Lee's parents...
30 Weeks

How Far Along? I am now 31 weeks pregnant!!!
 Size of Baby P? 16 inches long and 3.3 pounds
This week's major developments:
This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.
(from www.babycenter.com)

Maternity Clothes? Maxi dresses are still my favorite!
 Weight Gain? UMMMM.... at my appointment I am now up 25 pounds!! and a long way to go! He is measuring a week ahead though;).... I'm definitely getting the pregnant face and nose....
Stretch Marks/belly button?None and belly button the same! Dark line on the belly has officially appeared!
Gender?Momma's BOY!
Sleep?Still waking up for hours most nights...I get a pretty good nights sleep every now and then. I wake up about 4 times to use the restroom a night.
Food Cravings?Still loving peanut butter and milk.... still loving to eat!
What I Miss? Nothing really... I am starting to feel quite large though and my face is definitely looking pregnant!....
What I am loving? Preparing for little man's arrival! Being off for the summer!
Movement? He is running out of room. Always rolling and pressing on my bladder, which hurts pretty bad! 
Best Moment(s) of the Week and other random updates? 
  • Went to the doctor yesterday and she said everything looks perfect. Going back in 2 weeks!
  • His bathroom is complete, nursery ALMOST complete, and he even has a little playroom!
  • I got all of his items taken back and purchased what we needed. I still need to get his nap nanny!
  • We had our first beach trip last week and it was great! Definitely harder walking on the sand but I managed and actually exercised everyday!
  • Enjoying getting little things marked off my list. Still nesting a lot, which is really my personality  while not pregnant.
  • Ordering a video camera soon! Any suggestions welcome....
  • Scheduled our parenting class and breastfeeding class for July!!
  • Calling about pediatricians today! 
  • Packing hospital bag when we get back from our next beach trip! Any must haves that you took to the hospital???
  • Got a little craft project to do for his nursery soon!
  • Dropped off some little hats to get monogrammed for the hospital yesterday and they had them ready today! 
  • Forgot to mention that at the 4D, little man was head down, in position. Yes, I know, he can flip but I'll take it! :)
  • Guess that's enough updating for now....  Have a BLESSED day!

Gage in 4D!!

 This is how we spent the first 10 minutes of our 4D ultrasound. 
He had his hands directly over the part of his face we wanted to see!:) LITTLE STINKER!

He has his hands constantly around his face. Mommy sucked her thumb so I wonder if he's trying to suck his little fingers too!

He looks so sad here...

But the very next picture he gave us a smile! :)

Due to him constantly moving this is about as clear as we could get... but we'll take it!:)

Look at that sweet profile!

Who do you think he looks like?!haha
I know, it's a little hard to tell;)

Baby Talk.... Random Update!

 Mommy's first load of little man's clothes! I've never been so excited to do laundry! Folding and putting up was even exciting, which I usually dread.  Wish the excitement would last forever!!!!

His little clothes hanging & smelling like DREFT!
& organized by months using these little lifesavers!
I ordered them from Zulily, but the packaging says Charity Closet; much cheaper ordering them from Zulily though and worth the $$ for sure! 

Now, for the random thoughts from my pregnant brain: 
  • I swear this sweet child of mine is swimming, kickboxing, and doing cartwheels all at the same time. I have been up since 5:30 and he has not stopped! (and I love every minute of it:)
  • We have been out for summer over a week now and I have not stopped!! I was in my sweet friend's wedding, Rachel, this past Saturday. We had the Bridesmaid luncheon and rehearsal in the same weekend because she now lives in Louisiana! It was so much fun and a gorgeous wedding! On Sunday, my other best friend from high school got married! So this past weekend was full of wedding fun!
  • In mommy news, I went to the doctor for my 28 week checkup and everything looks great! We are measuring a week ahead! I will do a belly post soon. I have been terrible on getting my weekly belly pics but I will have one soon! We are currently 29 weeks and 1 day and definitely due for a bump update!
  • The nesting has kicked into high gear! The entire house from the pantry to every drawer in the house is now organized! I started tackling the playroom Monday and finished it up at 11:30 Tuesday night. This child already has an organized playroom because his mommy has gone crazy! 
  • My "office" is also in the playroom so now I'm itching to purchase some cute desk decor!!! 
  • The weekend before last my mom and I went on a shopping adventure to make this momma feel better! I was feeling quite frumpy, but my momma always has her way of whipping me into shape! :) Thank Heaven for my mom!!!
  • We also went to find some pieces for little man's bathroom. We found exactly what we needed at Target and his bathroom is now complete and adorable!
  • I have now washed and organized all of his precious baby items! I want to get a cube shelf for his cute baskets I bought and something to hang his diaper bags on.
  •  We have our last shower this Sunday given by our church! That will be my next project along with packing our hospital bags! 
  • His room is ALMOST complete and I promise I will share photos when it is! Things left on the list include: finding a lamp shade, Poppy refinishing the toy chest and window pane, creating something for the wall I have in mind;), and ordering the valence and ANOTHER crib sheet since I lost it while shopping (will not even get into that adventure!)
  • I have a few pinterest ideas I want to tackle next month (this could be scary) before some little boy comes into the world:).  I will share them, only if they turn out!
  • We have some beach trips coming up in June is the reason I am waiting until next month!
  • AND this FRIDAY, we get to see our little buddy in 4D! It feels like forever since I have seen him and this mommy cannot WAIT!!!! Everyone is predicting he will look just like daddy, and I will have to agree:)
  • Now that the ENTIRE house is organized, hopefully I can spend more time blogging and slow down before I kill myself ;). Upcoming posts: all baby showers, bathroom reveal, playroom reveal (so far), nursery reveal, and of course bump  updates! 
Sorry such a long post, I have so much more I could add but I won't bore you anymore! 

Have a BLESSED Tuesday!  
(You will find this mommy by the pool;)
