31 weeks

I was looking back at the little week-to-week pregnancy posts I wrote a few years ago.
Here's the one when I was 31 weeks with Alice. 

And with Clementine-

31 weeks from the outside:

31 weeks from the inside:

I also did a little question deal, so here's my very first one for this pregnancy:

How far along? 
31 weeks. 
6-11 weeks until we get to meet her!

Total weight gain/loss: 
16 pounds. 
10 less than where I was when I was with Alice.
(Maybe because we aren't eating wheat?
Or because I'm caring for 2 active little ones?)

How big is baby? 
Around 3.3 pounds, according to the Interwebs.

Maternity clothes? 
Yes.
The same ones over and over again.
I'm ready for Fall!
I have plenty of Fall/Winter clothes from being pregnant with Alice.

Stretch marks? 
Just the faded ones from the very end of Alice's pregnancy.
Hoping for no new ones this go round.
But really, I don't care.
People who see my belly= Ben and me.
That's it and that's all.

Sleep: 
Pretty good!
Little baby S is sleeping through the night now.
PRAISE!
We're enjoying this short season of sleep.

Best moment this week: 
Not pregnancy related, but we had court on Wednesday for little S.
It went very different than we were expecting, 
but in a good (hoping she'll get to stay with us) way.
We'd love your prayers.
The case is getting a little nutty.



Movement: 
Same as with Alice.
She is an active baby girl!
I've taken lots of videos of my belly jumping around like crazy.
Just today, Ben was watching it move from across the room.

Food cravings: No real cravings.
I mean, I could always go for some Talenti,
but that's just me being Melissa...
and it being 8 million degrees outside.

Gender: 
Still a girl.
We had the ultrasound tech double check this morning. :)

Labor Signs: 
Nope!
Still have awhile before that happens...I hope!

Belly Button in or out? 
Out.
It's weird.
I don't want to talk about it.

What I am looking forward to: 
Fall!!!!!
I love all things Fall.
Bring it!

Weekly Wisdom: 
Hmm...
I can't think of any I've heard lately.

But, I saw this video and LOVED it.
I'm carrying our Rainbow Baby (the baby who comes after a loss)
and this video beautifully shows how awesome home birth can be.


What a sweet way to capture the birth.
That little girl is going to LOVE watching that video someday.
