Strength shows, not only in the ability to persist, but the ability to start over.
It’s official. Barak Obama will lead the country for another four years. Let’s all hope that the next four years will bring about more positive change than the last four. I know my life will be drastically evolving for the better. The proof is in my growing belly.
How Far Along: 31 Weeks
Total Weight Gain: 28 pounds
Food Cravings: I know that Christmas is still weeks away, but I just couldn’t resist buying some peppermint chocolate chip ice cream. Seasonal treats are the best!
What I Miss: I miss only having to make one trip to the bathroom in the middle of the night. It is more like two or three times these days.
Symptoms: Now that I am popping Tums like candy, heartburn is a thing of the past. Just dealing with the round ligament pain now.
Baby Movement: We had some major movement going on this week. On Halloween night, Chris finally got to feel the baby move! I guess candy makes this little guy dance.
Maternity Attire: My maternity attire has drastically changed from rather tight work dresses to a more comfortable look of jeans and leggings, and I love it!
Hurl Factor: My dogs seem extra needy these days, which means they are trying to get in as much lap time as possible. The close proximity to their breath makes me a little queasy. Must buy more denti bones.
Annoyances: Now that I have the opportunity to tune into daytime TV, The Oprah Show is no longer on. I am pretty disappointed. There just are not any shows that can compare.
Weekly Highlight: Hands down it had to be Chris feeling the baby move. His expression was priceless.
Did you have any drastic hair changes while pregnant?
