Belly Update ~ 31 Weeks

This is pic #6 because Matthew kept being silly. This is just before the 31 week mark, and baby girl is growing and moving.

Moldy wanted to be in a picture,too, or she wanted to go out or needed food.

I caught my first real cold last weekend. I had taken students up the mountain to Boone, and the change in elevation and dry hotel room exacerbated my already sore throat. I sounded quite sad on Monday, but I managed to take it easy. Needless to say I am feeling much better!

Overall, I am doing well besides starting to feel tired again. My hands are starting to swell, and my belly button may pop soon. Matthew likes to tease me about it.

I am overwhelmed with how everyone wants to give me stuff for the baby! The hard part for us right now is deciding on a crib, dresser, etc. We went to IKEA in Charlotte and saw some potential. Our current thinking is get something light so we can move it into the bedroom when baby gets sick, but we are going to have a Pack N' Play. I looked at the few items at Target. We haven't seen anything that we would want to keep for 20 years. We would rather get something to last 5 or 6 and then decide on something more permanent. I need to look at Babies R' Us again. Don't worry, mom, I'll find something we like. :)

Any thoughts about what you like or don't like? Did you buy something you loved? Regretted? I welcome any advice. Thanks!
