31 week bump date

How far along? 31 weeks 5 days
Baby's size? at my last apt. doc was guessing around 3 1/2 lbs. around the size of a bunch of asparagus. 
Total weight gain: I was still only up 16lbs at my last apt. a week and a half ago. I have my next apt. on Monday at hopefully Ill have gained a little something, otherwise ill have gone a month with no weight gain. 
Maternity clothes? Yes ma'm
Sleep: still kinda rough. Lots of potty trips, heartburn, and unable to breath and get comfy.
Best moment(s) this past week: its been a few weeks since my last bumpdate, but some good moments have been getting family pictures done with my side of the family, and my mom through me a fun little "baby sprinkle" that was so much fun.
Miss Anything? Just the normal breathing, being comfortable. 
Movement:  lots of movement, still mostly at night but some days he will move all day long. There is one spot on my left side that I swear is bruised internally. Its a constant achey sensation, and when he rolls or kicks that spot it KILLS and stops me in my tracks. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope. :) glad that is all gone. 
Cravings: Cereal still
Labor Signs: nope
Gender: little man
Symptoms:  just the same, occasional braxton hicks, heartburn, fatigue is coming back but im sure my poor sleep is somewhat to blame.
Belly Button in or out? still gross and weird and mostly the top half is an outie, but if I cough, laugh or have a braxton hick the whole thing sticks out
Wedding rings on or off? off
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy and emotional. 
Looking forward to:  Halloween! Tanner made Hudson the most awesome costume! Also, being able to walk. I fell down almost two weeks ago and rolled my ankle. Pretty sure its sprained. Its still swollen and bruised :( but I figure its gonna take a little longer to heal sense im pregnant. I never went to the doctor. I have had issues with this ankle since I broke it when I was younger, and being pregnant I wasn't sure if they could even do an x-ray. Thankfully I can walk on it with out much pain, and my range of motion is getting lots better.  
How is Hudson doing?: Still doing so good :) asking about him every day, and just enjoying being the center of our attention for a few more weeks!

Apologizing in advanced, these pics are not great quality. I just copied them from FB from the sneak peeks since we haven't gotten the disc back yet. Ill post them all later when we get the disc and you can actually see them ;)

This maternity pose we snuck in ;) i was exactly 31 weeks here. 

all of my cute family!
Me, my mom, and my little sister! (she is only 12...soooo tall!)

This is probably my favorite picture ever of Mr. Hudson. It catches his personality PERFECT! love this boy, Porter has a lot to live up to ;) 

My cute little family

This was taken at 30 weeks, right before my "baby sprinkle"

Me and my cute little man going to the haunted park. 

riding all kinds of tractors at the pumpkin patch

a few instagram pics of the "sprinkle"
Our awesome 5 generation pic! Love my family so much :) its crazy to think were all the first of each generation and all had our first kid at 20 ( mom was 19 and I was 21, but it cancels each other out ;) )

I just have to say the sprinkle was so much fun! It was small, just close family and friends but that was perfect. We had an ice cream bar for all the guests and my mom made up the most adorable invitations, I don't have one on hand but ill have to get a picture of it up on the blog! Everyone brought just essential gifts, like diapers, wipes, lotions, etc. A few outfits of course as well. People just couldn't resist. We had a diaper raffle too, and the winner got a pretty sweet prize! My mom is seriously the best :)

28 week bump date

Holy cow its October 1st!! I cant believe it. This year is flying by and little man will be here in December. Im so excited, yet have SO much to do. We really haven't done much to get ready for this little guy. I finally decided that we would turn the spare bedroom into a playroom and have to boys share a room. Im not really sure what made me decide this way. But part of the reason is decorating ;) I found the most adorable saying on Pinterest  "sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero". It fits so cute, and I want to do a very subtle superhero theme in their room. The room already is blue with a red and white stripe along the top, so the colors match. We are also getting tanners old bunk beds from when he was a kid and painting them the same red as the stripe. We are also painting the crib the same color. I think it will turn out cute. Porter will spend the first few months in our room anyways. Then they will start to share. Im so excited for them to grow up with each other.

How far along? 28 weeks 2 day
Baby's size? the size of an iceberg lettuce
Total weight gain: after my doctor appointment last week im up a total of 16lbs from pre-pregnancy 
Maternity clothes? Yes ma'm
Sleep: is rough. Not gonna lie. Still getting up to pee, hard to fall asleep with heartburn. And im tossing all night because my hips start to hurt or my arms go numb or I cant breath well. only 12 more weeks! 
Best moment(s) this past week: Im pretty sure I passed my glucose test!! YAY. Doctor said the results would be in Monday and I would only hear from them if they needed to do the 3 hour test. I never heard anything so no news is good news. 
Miss Anything? Just the normal breathing, not being uncomfortable. 
Movement:  he is moving more and more. And starting to move during the day more. I love it 
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope, just still hate the look of meat.
Cravings: Cereal.
Labor Signs: nope
Gender: little man
Symptoms:  other then those mentioned still getting braxton hicks every day. and I think the first trimester fatigue is back. I have been so tired lately I could take a nap an hour after I wake up! Im pretty sure it has to do with my lousy sleep as well. 
Belly Button in or out? this crazy belly button of mine! It literally looks like the baby is only on the top half of my stomach and there is nothing in the bottom half lol. But its both, whenever I have a braxton hick, or porter pushes himself in the middle of my stomach then the whole thing pops out. Its weird! 
Wedding rings on or off? off
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy and emotional. 
Looking forward to:  Halloween! Im so excited for fall and and the holidays. We think we will be making Hudson's halloween costume this year so we gotta get on that. 
How is Hudson doing?: Even though I know he doesn't "get" it yet, I feel like he almost understands sometimes. He is so sweet with my belly, he tells everyone about Porter. He tells us all the toys he is going to share, and what animals he wants to show Porter how to be. He says when Porter crys he will say " its alright baby don't cry" lol I know things will surely be different once Porter is actually here. But its still so cute!
