31 Weeks

Our baby boy now measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds. He moves constantly. Sometimes it's hard for me to concentrate on what is going on around me, because I'm just thinking about him moving in my belly. I'll feel his elbow or knee swipe across my belly and it's the neatest feeling.

I've been in the miserable stage for a month already now. I've had crazy back pain and the heat is no help at all! I think the increased back pain during this pregnancy is simply due to having a baby to take care up. I can't hold Madison for very long before I feel strain on my stomach and back. I'm so looking forward to not being pregnant anymore so I can hold Madison without hurting.

It's kind of hard to believe that we are in the last stages of this pregnancy. I know it will be crazy adding another baby to our family, but I really look forward to getting rid of the "belly." I remember feeling so good right after I had Madison. Instantly you just feel better, despite the other pains you feel. :) I loved sleeping on my stomach the night that I had her. It was pure bliss!

On another note, we just got home from Louisville, KY tonight. We had a great time, but are exhausted. It's hard work traveling with a baby and living in a hotel! I'll post all about it tomorrow...

This may be a dumb question, but I'm going to ask it anyway. (What do I know about having a kid, right?) Why is there a quarter next to all the fruits and veggies in the photos you post. I'm assuming that the fruit/vegetable is suppose to represent the size of the baby, but I just don't get the quarter. Does it mean the baby weighs about this fruit size and maybe "some change"? I don't get it. Ha!
