31 weeks!

Another week has gone by; I can't believe it. I thought time was supposed to be slowing down not speeding up. I didn't even get another blog post in this past week. What a slacker! This past weekend I was so busy I completely regret it now. Since my baby shower on Sunday is going to be at my house; the house needed a good scrubbing so that is what I did on Saturday. Sunday I was supposed to rest since my feet hurt so bad but I decide to be brilliant and start refinishing my high chair. My Mom gave me my high chair, she still has my sister's at her house, it is solid wood and super cute. I plan on sanding all the old stain off and re-staining it. I am thinking about doing something different with the tray though, I haven't quite worked that out yet. Anyway, I am rambling, I got the tray sanded and the top row of the back and that's it. This is going to take a long time to complete I think.

On with the update. . .
Baby P is the size of a Squash this month!

Best Moment of the week: Seeing my husbands reaction every time he feels the baby move. It's like its the first time, every time.

Epiphany of the week: There are only 9 weeks left until my due date. Yikes!

Entertaining question/comment of the week: This one comes from my husband. I was telling him about someone I know who had her baby at 36 weeks recently. "I am not ready to think that he could be here in less than 5 weeks!". 

Obsessions: Preparing for hosting my baby shower at my house. I hope it's clean enough.

What I am most looking forward to this week: Childbirth Class #2 on Monday, seeing my sister this weekend and being with friends.

What I miss the most: Not really anything. I love being pregnant.

Symptoms: Nothing new this week

Milestones: Baby's going through major brain and nerve development these days. His irises now react to light, and all five senses are in working order. (He won't pick up anything from his nose until after birth, though -- smell is transferred through air, not amniotic fluid.)  *Courtesy of

The Captain took pictures of me last night so here are two of my favorites at 31 weeks.
He had just poked me with a knee or an elbow


5 lovely notes from friends:

Hi Erin, firtst of congratulations on all of your blessings, I follow your blog constantly, it gives me hope on this hard journey. I've been contemplating on writing you for a while, I hope you dont think its weird that a stranger is writing on your blog. I couldn't help but notice that we liv in the same area about one hour away more or less, well we are desperate to find another Infertility specialist, we decided to give another doctor a try sice we dont feel very confortable with ours anymore, not to mention it seems like his prices are the highest in the state!!! As you can tell we are kind of desperate we just had out 4th unsucessfull iui and as you know we are starting to lose hope. Here is my email adress its probably easier to comunicate that way. We would appreciate it so much if you could give us the information of the doctor that you used. Hope to hear from you soon.
