Re-entering Blogging with an Update

How far along? 
31 Weeks

Total weight gain:
17 lbs. Lost a few lbs. this past week. Not on purpose- due to stress I think.

Maternity clothes? 
Yes. Loving the cute styles.

Stretch marks? 
Just one on each side. I look like I'm wearing racer pants when I'm well, not.

Best moment this week:  
Understanding Spud's movements. When someone is talking in a mean 
tone, or loudly, or maybe Spud just doesn't like them, 
Spud hides under my right rib. Whole body.
 It's fun to feel Spud fold up on one side.

Miss Anything? 
Yoga. I miss being able to fold up, stretch out and just enjoy a good practice.

Lots. I can tell when it's a hand wave, a kick, or when 
Spud pedals along my stomach.

Food cravings: 

Anything making you queasy or sick: 

We're going to be surprised.

Labor Signs: 
I don't think so. I figure I will know it when I feel it.

None, really. Russ has to buckle my shoes most days.
But I can still see my feet and paint 
my own toenails.

Belly Button in or out? 

Wedding rings on or off? 
On- and very loose.

Happy or Moody most of the time: 
Happy and giggly. Surprisingly optimistic about everything- even 
the hard things.

Looking forward to: 
My mom coming down Thanksgiving to help set everything up.



Congrats! Matt loved seeing you prego picture so thanks for sharing. So jealous of your great pregnancy. When I went in to deliver Caroline I had gained 50 pounds!! So proud of you and can't wait to find out what Spud is but we think it's a boy!

LOOK AT YOU! I think you look just fantastic. And I am happy the pregnancy has been a positive experience. I think that is just you though Chow... easier to be a happier person.
