Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along? 31 weeks 4 days

Size of Baby? About 4 pounds and 17 inches long. Holy cow I can't believe he is so big already.

Gender? A BOY! Hayes Lucas Olson

Maternity Clothes? Nada. Thank goodness, because I couldn't afford them right now, even if I needed them.

Movement? I swear I can feel his little hands grabbing stuff and like he is trying to put them on top of his head. Which doesn't work very well, because his head is already resting on my cervix. Sometimes it feels like he is grabbing my hip bones, but I don't think that is really possible.

Sleep? Been going great. I seem to have a pattern of going to bed at about 9 then wake up at 1:30 to go to the bathroom and then sometimes I am up again at 4 to use the bathroom. If not I just sleep the rest of the night. Last night I must have forgot to reset my alarm( I usually wake up a few minutes before my alarm, so I just shut it off.) I woke up this morning thinking I must have a couple of minutes before my alarm and laid there for awhile, but when I finally rolled over to look at the clock, I was 20 minutes late. Ooops. Good thing I always get to work a half hour early, so I still had time to get read and I wasn't late. I have never been a morning person, but now even on the weekends I can't sleep past 7:30, it must be my body getting me ready to be a mommy.

Symptoms? I'm still feeling really good, no cramps, no contractions. I still feel like I am squishing Hayes and my insides when I am sitting at my desk at work.

Cravings? I have been wanting Chinese food when I am at work, but when I get off nothing sounds good for dinner. I feel like I have been hungry a lot more though. When I went to the doctor on Friday I had gained 1/2 pound since my last appointment. I guess we will see if I start gaining consistently now.

Best Moment of the Week? Being in the single digit weeks until Hayes makes his appearance! Also when I went to the doctor, I got to see the new one, when I laid down for her to measure my uterus, she chuckled and told me I had the cutest LITTLE baby bump. Haha seriously I am pretty sure no doctor has ever thought any part of my was little! Also when she was using the Doppler to listen to Hayes's heartbeat, every time she would get it close, he would jump. My whole stomach moved. I have no clue how he even knew she was coming near him! What a crazy little baby!

I still don't have the pictures from the baby shower, Jessica was supposed to bring them over on Monday when I got off work, but I forgot to call her. Ooopps.

My due date is only 60 days from today! That is crazy!
