31 weeks...

How far along?  More then 31 weeks... wahoo :)
Total weight gain- still around 25 pounds
Baby Related Purchases-
We had our New Orleans baby shower!  Here is some of the wonderful gifts!  I only have a couple of these pic right now...
Amanda making sure Bailey loves Disney from the beginning!
Hand-made pillow from Allie

This week I had some thoughts on all the baby stuff... still trying to sort the necessities from the nice-to-haves from the don't-need-at-alls! 
Now that we have had the last shower we are trying to make a list of the things we really actually need versus those that we will need later, versus those that we don't need at all.
We came up with these things that we need now:
*Pack'N'Play Sheets
*Baby carrier of some sort
*Diaper changing pad cover
And these things we will need later
*Crib bedding
*Mattress cover
Stretch marks- nope
Movement- She has been moving like crazy this week... she has officially learned to do somersaults!  
What I miss- I really missed normal clothes this week.  I still wear a lot of non maternity clothes... tried to wear one outfit Friday to work and it was an epic fail.  I was just uncomfortable all day.
Cravings- Just want to eat all the time...
Anything making you queasy or sick- Heart burn is still around at night... but I just love to eat 
Gender- Girl!!!!! Check out our thoughts on our little girl :)
Labor- not yet!  
Symptoms- Felt pretty energetic this week... which was good because it was so busy.  So just the heartburn I guess.
Worries- No time to worry this week...
Best moments of the week...
* I got to speak at the new teacher celebration in St. Charles Parish.  It was such an honor to encourage other teachers.  Though it made me sad that I may not be there next year.
*Baby shower!!!

Looking forward to...

*Finishing up the nursery!
*Mardi Gras Break and parades in general!  
*Meeting Bailey Drew... not too long now!!!!
Size of baby- weighs as much as 4 naval oranges
What the baby is up to- (from
This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. She weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. She 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. She'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.

Get Caught Up!!!
