How far along? 31 weeks, 2 days
Baby Size: The size of a coconut
Total weight gain: Two weeks ago we were at 24lbs...sooo.....
Maternity clothes? Mostly all maternity clothes, however I am wearing some dresses and tops that are not. 
Stretch marks? None yet and I really hope it stays that way! 
Sleep: Much better lately; I only wake once on average to pee. 
Best moment this week: Making it another week after having a little scare at 29 weeks that ended up
with contractions for several days and two hospital visits! 
Miss Anything? Sandwiches with cold deli meat!
Movement: Yes!!! However the last few days she's been much more chill with less kicks
and just more rolling around wayyyyyyy down there. 
Food cravings: Boiled crawfish, Cadbury eggs and ice cream. AND sandwiches!!! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Only when hubby cooks his weekly asparagus dish! I gag every time. 
Gender: Sweet little girl!!!! 
Symptoms: Lots of braxton hicks, pressure and back aches. 
What's different this go around? I've been dilated since 29 weeks and I wasn't dilated until 36 weeks last time. 
Dilation? 1cm two weeks ago
Belly Button in or out? Almost out, but hasn't changed much in the last several weeks. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Happy, anxious and tired. 
Nursery? Currently washing swaddle blankets and starting to wash Little Bug's old newborn clothes. 
Eeeeekkkkk it's getting close! 
Looking forward to: Having this sweet baby, making it through the Great Cloth Diaper Change that we 
are hosting next week, getting the nursery ready and packing bags in a couple of weeks. 
{Mine is already kinda sorta packed}

There's so much to look forward to and I just can't wait. Seeing many of my friends having their 
new little babies right now has me itching to deliver this one. However, I do need her to cook a bit longer. 
I can't wait to place this sweet little girl on my chest and snuggle her close and take every moment in. 
I keep daydreaming about what that moment will be like, how she'll look and how she'll smell. 
I adore this Little Fox already. 

Ahhhh.....
