A 31 Week (Non)Update

I missed yesterday's weekly update because I was too busy celebrating Little H's second birthday (more about that to come once I get photos uploaded and some time to write about our awesome adventures). That's okay though, because I really don't have a whole lot to say in terms of a 31 week update. Since I'm still visiting with the fam, I decided to just write a quick bullet list of anything that stands out in my mind about this week....
  • I think the Dude and I have finally come to an agreement about names for our child. I am 95% sure we are set on names for both a boy and girl. And no, I will not be sharing them on the blog until after the baby's arrival.
  • I have been having leg cramps through the night pretty often. The kind where you wake up and wonder when you ran a marathon without noticing. I'm trying to up my calcium and potassium intake to offset them, so hopefully that will help.
  • The Little Monkey is kicking and jabbing and poking around a ton in there. Almost anytime I am still I feel him moving around. And he gets the most active if I place an object on my tummy. It's like he tries to kick it off. I have also been seeing and feeling body parts jab out quite often. I think I am able to tell where the bum is most of the time.
  • And finally ... I am finding it SO hard to believe that I am now in the single digit countdown of weeks! 9 weeks to go!
I will be back next week to catch you up on what else I've been up to this week (trust me, it's been exciting)!

I can't believe there's only 9 weeks until your due date! Do you think the baby will come early, on time, or late? Its almost time to start making guesses on what the due date will be! How are you feeling?

I never got leg cramps when I was pregnant, but do periodically other times - I heard drinking water helps, but that will probably just increase nightly bathroom breaks! haha

Wow - I seriously cannot believe it. 31 weeks already?! And your creepy floating baby over there on the right says only 63 days to go. CRAZY!!!!!!!
