thoughts on 31 weeks

On more positive and brighter news.....

We're just chugging along on this pregnancy train! Choo choo! 

31 weeks. 

I continue to expand around the middle, and I know it will only continue. Yay!

There is less and less room in my torso for my lungs and stomach, making it hard to breathe, and also to digest the amount of tacos I prefer to eat. But I know this is temporary, and soon I will be eating as many tacos as I want again.

I'm excited to see what the next 9 weeks bring for me. 9 weeks. He/she will be earth side in 9 weeks or less. Yay!

We finally got registered at Target. We have no idea what we're doing. But I'm not worried about it. We have enough love and time and energy (right now!) to give this baby what it needs. We will figure it out as it goes. 

I'm having a baby shower. Because that's what you're supposed to do. I feel weird and awkward asking people for gifts, but for some reason when you have a little nugget inside you, people want to buy you stuff. So I guess, bring on the stuff (but only if its on my registry please!--i'm only kidding!) 

I'm still feeling really good. Still teaching yoga once a week. I do have a pain in my right shoulder blade and daylight savings time is really messing with me. I'm ready for bed around 7:30 and am lucky to make it to 9 pm. I'm definitely feeling a lot of my energy going straight to the baby, who enjoys kicking me right in the ribs hourly. 

This time feels like a time of limbo. A time of anticipation, yet a time of unknowns. How will this baby be born? When? What will life be like after? 

I'm trying not to have expectations but its hard not to envision our lives come January. 

The next few weeks will be spent finishing up some house projects, collecting lots of baby stuff, enjoying family and a slower pace of life over the holidays, and resting.

Lots of resting. 

Cheers to 31 weeks!
