31 Weeks and Counting



I had my 31 week appointment yesterday. Everything looks the same, so we're doing good. The doctor said 5 more weeks and we'll be in good shape. Bed rest is a loose term. I'm trying to take it easy and be aware if I'm overdoing it or having contractions. It's a little hard to stay down with a two year old, but Madeline is pretty good about reading and playing with me on the couch.

Pregnancy the second time around has been filled with more aches and pains, a bigger belly (and baby!) and hard-to-sleep nights, but it's completely worth it. I'm grateful for this little guy growing inside of me and can't wait to meet him...full term of course :)

Matt is done with the ICU night shift. Yay! He's now doing surgery. We'll see how that goes. I'm amazed at the stuff he's doing. It's just weird to think they let him treat real people :) But he's working hard, learning a lot and doing a great job.

I hope all of your summers are going well!
