Bumpdate: 31 Weeks

size of the baby: a pineapple 

total weight gain: 20.5 lbs. 

gender: Baby Girl - Miss Olivia Rose 

movement: still lots of movement, mostly in the evenings, but occasionally while I'm at my desk working or driving throughout the day

missing: all of my festive, patriotic clothing! Eric & I normally go all out for Memorial Day & the Fourth, but none of my normal clothes fit. My plan B overcompensate with patriotic recipes instead. 

craving: Sweets. I'm doing my best to eat them in moderation, but I'm real close to buying a can of frosting & eating it with a spoon. 

exercise: I'm slowing down just a little bit this week. I managed to log 34 miles, but on Monday, I just had to sit & put my feet up. It was 85 & humid, so I didn't want to push it too hard. On other days though, I've been feeling great & looking forward to my nightly walks. So, I'll just keep taking it day by day. 

symptoms: Olivia is definitely pressing on my bladder & my lungs - at the same time. It makes going upstairs a chore, and unfortunately that's where our bathroom is at home. #catch22 

As I've mentioned earlier this week, Olivia has a closet! We hemmed & hawed over plans for weeks & finally decided to do an open shelf with a hanging rod. There simply just isn't enough space to build in a real closet. I really like how it turned out though & baby clothes are the cutest to look at! I'm currently searching for the perfect baskets to go on the shelf, where I plan to store extra sheets, blankets, wipes, diapers, etc. 

looking forward to: 
  • This is my last {planned} weekend away from home! We're hitting up all sides of the family for Memorial Day & I'm really excited to see everyone! 
  • Finishing up the school year. I still have 19 school days until final exams begin, but things are slowly getting checked off my to - do list!
