{31 Weeks}

You would think that after 7 long months of waiting, 2 months wouldn't seem so bad. However, week 30 was accompanied by some discouragement and impatience. 

I want my girl so badly it hurts.

In reality, 2 months really isn't that far away and I have plenty to do before she arrives, but I'm struggling with enjoying the present moments. I don't want to wish time away. Time that I have with Truman, time that I have to myself, and even time that she gets to spend in my tummy. I know that once she's here I will really miss that movement inside of me. So I'm going to try really hard to take it one day at a time and appreciate the season I'm in. (Knowing that it's totally impossible without the peace of Christ.)

On a lighter note, we put the crib together last week!
Little P is going to sleep in our room for the first few months, but I can't wait until she's ready to sleep in the crib!
 Beans didn't quite share in our joy...she'll come around.
31 Weeks
My cousin got married this weekend so it was fun to spend time with family and even dance a little.

 Aunt Kal likes to touch the belly.
At 31 weeks...

-I have been taking lavender baths nightly. I'm feeling more achy and crampy than usual so the warm water feels good before bed. 

-I get uncomfortable when I go out in public. I've always been really self conscious about my size (fast metabolism makes it extremely hard for me to gain weight) and being pregnant didn't really add weight it just added a large belly. People stare...blatantly...especially women. 

-Little P has definitely moved up because I can barely breathe at times. However, I LOVE feeling her little feet kicking so high. It scares the crap out of me every time, but I love it. 

-Birthing class is going great. I walk the fine line of being completely terrified of labor and thinking "I can't do this!" and having this "bring it on" mentality like it's going to be okay and I can totally handle it. Trying to gain mental strength and practice on my breathing...

-I've been playing this song every morning to get the day started. Enjoy!

Perfectly normal feelings you are having at this stage in your pregnancy! I remember feeling the same way. I had always been really small and then all of the sudden I found myself with a *huuuge* belly and a fat face that I wasn't fond of. But pregnancy body is so beautiful and you have such a gift inside of you! Also, those last few weeks were the hardest for me, too. I never made it to a full 9 months because I went 3 weeks early, but I was definitely ready (& so was Cole)! Enjoy the last few weeks with Truman and the peace and quiet before you have a new little addition to stir things up! It's such a blessing it will be, though, going in to this new life. I am so excited for you to be a mother, it is definitely the best thing that has ever happened to me.
