31 Weeks!

This week, at 31 weeks, Dan and I took our last pre-baby flight. We still have one more baby-moon planned (to London in May), but this was the last time it will just be the two of us on vacation before our lives are forever changed. I'm definitely looking forward to her arrival, but it will be a huge change, to say the least. Let's hope baby loves to travel as much as we do. Since she'll have been to nine countries and three continents before she's even born (!), I'd say chances are pretty good.

Ligament pain was still an issue this week, and unfortunately it was aggravated by the amount of walking I did while on vacation. It's much better when I give in and take it slow, so that's what I'm really going to focus on these next few weeks. Thankfully, I'm feeling great in every other respect. I love feeling the baby move, which is a good thing since it seems that's all she does.

I started prenatal yoga this week too. It's a once-a-week class specifically for pregnant women, most of whom are in their third trimester. The instructor is fantastic and had really great insights to share. I'm normally not big into yoga, but I found this class to be just what I needed. I especially loved the tea and cake portion of the evening :) I'm looking forward to continuing right up through the end of my pregnancy.

How far along? 31 weeks
Maternity clothes? Yes, but I'm having a hard time finding good spring clothes in the UK
Stretch marks? None so far
Sleep? I'm like a furnace at night. As long as it's cool, I can sleep. Otherwise it's a nightmare.
Best moment of the week: Watching Cirque du Soleil in Lithuania!
Miss anything? Red Caviar (it's huge in Lithuania)
Movement: Oh, so very much
Food cravings:  Sweets. Remember week 14 when baby didn't want anything sweet? She seems to have gotten over that issue
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show yet? Definitely
Gender: Girl!!
Belly Button in or out? Continuing its journey outward
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy
Looking forward to: Continuing prenatal yoga classes
