32 weeks!

So, we have had a friend of ours trying to persuade us to let her take some maternity pics for some time now. We finally decided that it was something we wanted to do....if only to be able to show our little girl one day. I was very hesitant about letting her take pictures of my belly. And I am not a big fan of most maternity pics you find on the internet. But, Jaymie listened to how I felt and made me feel extremely comfortable.
I couldn't be happier with how the pictures turned out, and I haven't seen them all yet.

The picture above is Payton's bedding, that my wonderful mother made....and the outfit that Payton will wear home from the hospital. The blanket folded next to the outfit was what I was wrapped up in when I left the hospital in 1982. (one good thing about my mother being a pack rat)
 Here are a couple more pictures...hope you like them.

30 Weeks!

This was me at almost 29 weeks.
How far along? 30 weeks and 2 days - less than 10 weeks to go!

Total weight gain/loss: Total weight gain as of my last dr appt was 11 lbs. ( I had gained 4 lbs in a month at my last appt....which is definitely the most I have gained so far...but Dr said it is to be expected and he says I am right where I should be) I had lost 6 in the I have gained that back plus 5 lbs.
Stretch marks? A few are showing their faces....very depressing!

Sleep: It is getting harder and harder. I woke up at 4 am yesterday morning and couldn't go back to sleep....lovely.

Best moment this week: I found out on Monday that my Gestational Diabetes test results came back completely normal!

Food cravings: Schlotzskys....and any toasted sub lately.

Gender: GIRL!

Labor Signs: None at all and hopefully not for a long time!

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: laying on my belly or my back!

What I am looking forward to: Our first baby shower next weekend in Tennessee!! AND we have a photographer coming over next week to take pics of us in the nursery...I hope they turn out okay.

Weekly Wisdom: Don't take on too much when you're pregnant. This week is a little overwhelming!
