31 Weeks & My Awesome Hubby/Daddy-to-be

How Far Along? 31 weeks, 4 days - 59 days to go!
Size?  head of lettuce, 19 inches, 3.9 lbs - 
Maternity Clothes? Same as before a couple dresses and shirts, but other than that regular dresses
Weight Gain? I'm gonna say 23...I go to the doctor next Thursday, so we shall see! :)
Stretch Marks? None yet, still crossing my fingers!!
Gender? Baby Girl!! Elise Kelly!
Sleep? On and off, I am always tired but baby girl has decided to play the drums on my belly when I get it bed at night. I am actually totally okay with it, I love feeling her move like that...it's like we are playing! :)
Movement? In addition to the above, she is moving all over the place. I felt her all up in my ribs last week, to the point of lots of pain...then on Friday it was like she just dropped. She was completely on top of my bladder and pushing like crazy, needless to say I spent most of Friday evening to and from the bathroom. Now she seems to be kind of centered again. 
Food Cravings? Peanut butter. This one is new. I have had PB & J, Reese's Puffs Cereal, chocolate/peanut cookies, and I am daydreaming about the french toast with banana's and peanut butter from Puckett's Grocery that I didn't get on Saturday.
Anything making you queasy or sick? nope! 
Labor signs? this will be crazy when I answer anything other than no!
Belly button in or out? still very flat, but not out yet
Wedding rings, on or off? still on!
What I Miss? nothing these days to be honest, I am just a happy happy momma-to-be! 
Symptoms? heartburn (duh!), exhaustion, and lots of anxiety...it's weird. same as last week!
Happy or Moody? I have been a bit moody lately... I blame it on the anxiety and lack of sleep....
Best Moment of the Week? This morning actually. I was leaving for work and found a baby bird on our walkway. I, of course, knelt down to see if it was okay and it was struggling quite a bit. I called The Hubs, very worried - almost in tears, and he turned around and came back home immediately. He has spent the morning taking care of it and calling around to find someone to help. He was so sweet and so nurturing all while taking charge! I didn't even have to ask, he just did! He is going to be such an amazing Daddy!! 
(**update on baby bird, he is moving around quite a bit and seems to be doing well. the hubs is taking him to a local refuge so they can take care of him and nurse him back to health!:) - makes this momma very very happy!!)
Looking forward to....my doctor's appointment next week to see Baby Girl's progress!! :)

Aww that was very sweet of your husband to come back knowing you were upset. Sounds like his daddy skills are kicking in already!

Your soo cute.

SO cool that you aren't really "swollen" and can wear your rings still. I had a friend that was so swollen for the entire last trimester I felt so bad for her.

You look soo cute! Wish I could pull off dresses like that. I haven't gotten swollen yet either, crossing my fingers for us :)

You look great! And what a sweet story about your hubs. Which is ironic because we have a birds nest in our palm tree and my husband checks on the babies almost everyday and I love it... so sweet!
