How Far Along: 31 weeks and 1 day. We're down to single digits in the weeks that are left! *Cannot* believe it!

Size of Baby: According to BabyCenter, the baby is the size of a pineapple, is over 16 inches long, and weighs about 3.3 pounds.

Total Weight Gain: I don't want to talk about it. :-\

Gender: It's a girl!!

Maternity Clothes: Oh yeah.

Wedding Rings On/Off: On

Stretch Marks: Still just the few I found last week. I've been using the Palmer's Tummy Butter faithfully and maybe {probably} it's just wishful thinking, but I feel like maybe they're a *tiny* bit better.

Sleep: It's still taking me a long time to go to sleep which is so frustrating since I have to get up early. Once I get to sleep, though, I sleep pretty well most of the time. You know, I thought I was supposed to be the one having the crazy dreams {I've only had a few}, but Daniel has been having really funny dreams lately. One of my favorites of his is when he had a dream that we were home with the baby, I gave her a Sharpie, and she drew all over our pillowcases!

Cravings/Aversions: Still nothing super specific lately. I'm just hungry most of the time.

Symptoms: More of the same, although the heartburn and labored breathing are the worst right now. I've never had heartburn in my life before being pregnant, and the labored breathing...well, let's just say it's a challenge when my job is to talk nearly all day long. My students are getting used to me stopping to catch my breath!

Movement: She must be getting used to the routine of being up and around more during the day because she's moved more while I'm at work this week. I'm so glad...I start to get worried when I haven't felt her for a while. She moves a *ton* at night, though. We could both feel her rolling around the other night.

Mood: Very happy most of the time!! Still pretty emotional, too. :)

What I Miss: Just little silly things like certain foods {sushi!}, sleeping on my stomach, and being able to breathe easier. I'm definitely not complaining, though.

Looking Forward To: I'm going on a women's retreat with my church this weekend, so I'm excited for some girl time! I will miss Daniel so much, though. I'm pretty sure completely sure that I'm going to cry when I say goodbye to him. {See "Mood" above... ;)}I'm also excited to add some more things to the nursery. The rug we ordered came in, and I also ordered this cross in pink and gray for our hospital room door and then for the nursery.

Best Moment This Week: We had our maternity pictures taken this past weekend. The weather was absolutely perfect and we *loved* our photographer! It's hard to believe we'll be doing newborn photos in just a couple of months! :)
