7 months today!

I had another pregnancy visit and thought I would update all of you!

- I gained another 2 lbs in the last 2 weeks and am up to +7 lbs for this pregnancy.

-Miles is no longer measuring SUPER big. He is only a little bigger than he should be... measuring 34 cm at 31 weeks.

-Margot recommends that, as of now, we don't need another ultrasound to check for growth!

-Margot is very confident that Miles is head down. She felt my belly and said that at that moment, he was facing my spine with his head down... perfect position!

-I am officially having trouble sleeping. I can't get comfortable at night. My hips ache as soon as I lay down and no amount of pillows between my legs help.

-I have started sleeping on my back with a little pillow under one hip. This is the only way to relieve the pressure from my hips, but causes mega back pain when I wake up because my spine is curved funny all night long.

-The baby shower is less than 2 weeks away and I can't wait to see family and friends.... just don't be too surprised at the belly size... it is big!

speaking of belly... here it is!

To sum it up, everything is going really well. I am so excited for the baby shower... it is all I think about. Carl is doing good in school and keeping busy. I make sure he has a good breakfast, lunch, and dinner... but I don't mind. It is nice to be able to help him and know that all the house stuff is getting done. My home binder is doing well too... planning the meals ahead of time and shopping on Monday for the whole week is really working out! Soooo.... everything is great! I feel good...although I am feeling huge and am now sporing a few stretch marks on the bottom of my belly :(  and needing naps due to lack of nighttime sleep.
