Pregnancy Update

Last week, I realized two things:  I have failed to update on my pregnancy and we have not taken one picture of me pregnant! I told Josh our baby girl is going to think she was adopted, because there are no pictures of her in my belly.  Thankfully, my best friend took a couple of pictures of me last weekend at our girls' weekend and now I have one to share! 

I am officially 31 weeks as of today - only 9 weeks left until her due date!  This pregnancy really has been a blur and I can't believe she will be here in 2 months.  As I sit here typing, she is moving around quite a bit (may have something to do with that Krispy Kreme doughnut I just ate!), which is not unusual for her.  Thankfully, she is not quite as active in the womb as Josiah, but she definitely makes her presence known. 

My pregnancy has been very normal and easy thus far.  Weight gain is normal, no swelling, and other than my back hurting in the evenings, I feel fine.  I have had to ease up on some of my household chores, because I was getting winded very quickly and so tired by the afternoon that I was ready to go to bed at 7:30pm! I didn't realize until this weekend how tiring it is taking care of two small children as well.  The Lord blessed me with a weekend with college friends and for the first time, I wasn't taking care of my boys.  I was amazed at the amount of energy I had!  Routinely picking up a 27lb toddler probably isn't the best thing in my 3rd trimester, but the Lord gives me the strength to take care of them. 

When I went to the doctor yesterday, he mentioned that I could be induced at 39 weeks if I want.  I talked with Josh about it and right now we think it better just to wait.  My labors with the boys have been very slow and I would rather go into labor naturally and be able to stay at home as long as possible before submitting to the restrictions of the hospital  (no eating, drinking, walking around, etc).  Plus, Josh said he likes the excitement of wondering if this is going to be the day!  Even so, I would still be more than happy to go into labor naturally at 39 weeks!

Your bump looks so small for just 31 weeks! And you're carrying her high too, just like I did. :-) (None of that really means anything, I guess.) You look good pregnant and she'll be here before you know it. The more natural you can go, the less medical intervention (but still available), the better, I think! You look great.
