Pregnancy Files {The Bump Week 31}

Best moment this week: This week has been a whirlwind so please excuse my doctor's office selfie as my 31 week bump picture that is really me at the beginning of 32 weeks, oops. I actually like it because it captures so much of what pregnancy in between the moments of doctor's visits, praying everything is growing at the right pace, smiling so big when you hear your baby's heartbeat. So the best moment of my week was lying on the bed in the doctor's office and listening to Aiden's heartbeat then hearing the doctor say that everything is looking great and right on track!

Food cravings: I've eaten more Chinese take out the last two weeks than ever before. Someone please stop me. 

Movement: He's been moving around a lot and when I set things on my stomach they won't stay there any more as he has been kicking them off. So funny. He is also hiccuping daily. I love it.

Symptoms: Things like putting my shoes on, picking things up off the floor and sitting upright for long periods of time comfortably are getting more and more difficult especially since some part of Aiden is camped out under my rib cage. We went to a movie the other night and I just could not sit still. I kept having to change positions to try and get comfortable. 

Nursery: This week we finally got around to doing a few more things in the nursery. We got take out Friday night and took it back to the house then it was operation Aiden's room. Drew hung up a new clothing rod in the closet, mounted curtain tie backs, we hung our mobile and I washed and sorted a bunch of baby clothes! It is so fun and surreal to see baby clothes in our washer. So tiny and adorable!!

Prayer for Baby:
Dear Aiden,
I always look forward to hearing your heartbeat at each doctor's appointment. It is such an incredible sound and it makes me so happy to hear!! 9 more weeks until we get to see you and feel your heartbeat ourselves. Your Dad is coaching his first football game this week and I can't wait to go and watch. We can't wait to see what kinds of things you are interested in!!
Your Mama

Dear Lord,
This week has been a busy one. I'm trying to make time slow down by soaking up every moment of this pregnancy. This week I have a few people on my heart to pray for. Specifically couples who are struggling to conceive and want it so badly. I'm thankful everyday for Aiden growing inside me, but I know it is not an easy journey for everyone. Help comfort those couples who are trying, give them wisdom and patience and most importantly help them to trust in your perfect timing and your plan for their lives and for their family. Thank you for knowing and caring about every detail of our lives.

You look beautiful! You are almost there! I love your prayer for others struggling with infertility. My heart breaks for each and every couple that longs to have a baby! I know the pain of thinking it might not happen. It does make you want to soak up every moment of pregnancy and every moment after once you finally do conceive!
