32 Weeks

Holy moly - only 8 weeks left - MAX.  How has this pregnancy flown by so much!?!

How far along? 32 Weeks 3 Days
Size of baby:  I went with a different source this week - so he is the size of a loaf of bread
Total weight gain/loss: I think I'm roughly 25 lbs.  That works for me!
Maternity clothes: YES!  Even non maternity sleep tee shirts are getting a bit snug
Gender:  Sweet little boy!  Holt Fairfield Watts II
Movement: All the darn time.  He's got a ton of energy in there.  He takes after his daddy
Sleep: Not so good.  I can't get comfortable and when I do, I can't stay that way.
What I miss:  A good night's sleep
Cravings: Comfort food.  Especially the kind that can be drown in ranch or honey mustard dressing.  MMMMM
Best moment this past week:  Watching B experience the baby moving.  It's so stinking adorable!  I like that he can now be more a part of things.
Symptoms: Heartburn like woah.  I had toast this morning and I'm dying.  And the puffy fingers and feet and cankles.  They're super cute.
What I'm looking forward to: Baby shower numero dos is this week.  Can't wait!  Oh, and I just noticed that I went all spanish with my verbage and my shower is at a Mexican restaurant!  And my ultrasound next week.  This little nugget is measuring a big large (3 weeks early!!!!!!) so we're going to check him out and see just how big he is getting and then formulate a game plan.  God bless my OB who said if he's going to be more than 10 lbs she won't make me birth him.  I love her.
Milestones: He is likely in the head down position now
Mood: The hormones are rearing up a bit more than they were...
Signs of labor? Nope, thank goodness.
Wedding rings on or off? Officially off.  I'm now wearing a ring that's part of a right hand set.  It's sparkly and it fits.  Winner!

31 Weeks

How do I only have 9 weeks left?!  Holy crap!

How far along? 31 Weeks 2 Days
Size of baby:  A Pineapple.  Mmmmmy pineapple sounds really good now. 
Total weight gain/loss: I'm hovering around 23 lbs.  I'm totally fine with that.
Maternity clothes: Yes and yes!
Gender:  Sweet little boy!  Holt Fairfield Watts II
Movement: All the time.  He's getting so big now that the movements are super noticeable.  And sometimes not so pleasant.  But really cool.  Any my belly now looks like there's an alien living inside it.
Sleep: Depends on the day.  Usually not great though
What I miss:  This weekend I really missed adult beverages for some reason
Cravings: Chips Ahoy chocolate chunk cookies. MMMMMMMM
Best moment this past week:  Laying on the couch yesterday watching my belly move.  Then, B laid is head on my belly and the baby kicked him in the head.  Seeing B's reaction was adorable.
Symptoms: Still the dry nose.  And the achiness.
What I'm looking forward to: Having maternity pics taken in a few weeks.  Hopefully I won't be as big as a house then.
Milestones: All 5 senses are now working and his temperature is partially regulated by the brain
Mood: Pretty good.  Although I've noticed I've had a shorter fuse lately.  And I'm a bit weepier
Signs of labor? Nope, thank goodness.
Wedding rings on or off? Still just down to one, which is usually my engagement ring.
