31 Week Pregnancy Highlights. . . And Some Other Stuff

31 Week Pregnancy Highlights
How far along: 31 Weeks and growing all around!
How big is baby: Going off of my app again he is still as big as a head of lettuce just at 3.9 pounds now. He is also around 19 inches long.
Weight gain/loss: I believe we are around either 25 or 30 pounds of weight gain. I need to ask the doctor next time I go.
Maternity clothes: Still in them and outgrowing some. . . Thanks to my mom though I have 3 wonderful new outfits that will also work for when I am as big as a house.
Stretch marks: Still none that I have yet to notice, I am praying for a miracle to happen and that I will come out of this thing mark free!
Sleep: It's alright. The third trimester insomnia is getting to me. It is getting harder and harder to fall asleep and then to stay asleep. I keep just thinking and thinking and thinking lol.
Best Moment of the Week: Taping the crazy baby in my belly trying to escape one night this week. I did it to show mom that yes he really does move, just not around her.
Movement: Very strong!
Food Cravings: Obviously I am becoming an "ice snob" according to Mark because I base where I want to eat on whether or not they have good ice.
Gender: Still a boy :-)
Labor Signs: Nothing again. Still ok with that.
Belly button in or out: A little bit of both, and very stretched out lol.
Daddy: He is still doing great. He is going to be at our Tyler baby shower this Saturday which will be fun for me for sure. I can't wait to see how he handles getting all this baby stuff that he doesn't know how to use or what it is for. I bet it sets in just a little bit more again.

Also let me take the time to say how much I love my family! I have the best family in the entire world!!! My mom took me yesterday and bought me outfits so I would have something to wear to my showers. I kept telling her she didn't have to, but she didn't listen lol. I love her so much, and I know I will definitely be relying on her especially in the coming months after the baby is here. I don't know if she knows it or not, but she really is super mom. I couldn't ask for a better one at all, God has truly blessed me. I hope I can and will be as loving and a devoted a mother to Reid as she was to me and Adam.

I bet you're outfits look so cute on you! You may feel as big as a house, but you should post pictures so that I can see that belly of yours! Thanks for the update.
