7 Months Pregnant

Poor thing just wanted to draw on the chalkboard, not hold it up for my picture!  

Happy Girl:

Growth since last month......

7 Months down, 2 months to go!  Today I'm 31 weeks, 4 days.  

Slowly but surely I'm realizing that this is actually happening.  I'm going to have 2 kids.  2 little girls!  I'm honestly getting really excited.  I know its going to hard, but I think I can handle it.  I think...

I had my 32-week checkup today and things are going right as they should.  I can't believe that I'm not swelling at all.  So different than with Hailey, but I'm definitely not complaining.  The weight gain is also so much less this time.  I'm sitting at 28 pounds gained so far, and at this point with Hailey I was closer to 40-45 pounds.  I'm going to chalk it up to healthy eating and staying super active.  I'm not technically exercising, but Hailey and I go on playdates and/or run errands nearly every day and hoisting her 28-pound frame in and out of the carseat and shopping carts 10+ times a day is a workout in itself!  Plus I'm not working in a hotel this time around eating bad-for-me food around the clock!   

I've been feeling really well overall.  I'd say I'm pretty comfortable about 75% of the time.  The rest of the time I'm dealing with exhaustion, heartburn, and annoying nightly leg cramps!  It's getting harder to sleep at night because I'm so uncomfortable.  Up until now it hasn't bothered me to sleep on my back, but now its just too much pressure.  Plus it's been taking me at least an hour to fall asleep each night!  Annoying.

In terms of getting things ready for baby's arrival, I've made a little progress over the past month.  I've gone through all my tubs of Hailey's clothes from newborn to 6 months and got everything washed and put away.  Plus, my generous mother in law brought over tons of new clothes as well.  

This was a project..........

New things from Grandma Marge
Hailey's big girl room is about 90% complete, which means that baby's room is next on the agenda. We have pulled down the wallpaper border in there, but that's about it.  Once we get the walls painted I think things will start coming together.  

 Our family vacation was AWESOME!  We had so much fun and such a relaxing week.  Being pregnant didn't hold me back from doing anything on vacation... except of course for cocktails and bikinis... ha!  Here is a preggo beach pic:

See ya next month!
