Week 31!

Holy crap, I am 31 weeks pregnant!

I can't believe how time has flown, this little guy or gal will be here in NO time.  

I am still feeling pretty great, besides the shortness of breath and potty breaks every 30 minutes.

I read today in an email that to help with the frequent potty trips, I should "double void." Meaning, pee. sit for a second. pee again.

So I tried it - fail.  I wish I could double void my bladder, then I maybe I would just go every hour.

I am also struggling with pregnancy brain, which I have assured myself time and again that this so called pregnancy brain is a myth.  I am beginning to rethink my previous position.  I actually left my phone in Menard's  today.  Hubbs was not happy when we had to turn around and trek back to the store.  Luckily someone turned it in and all is well.

I had a pretty great day with the Hubbs today, some shopping, some eating, then a trip to the bakery.  I am now back home chilling on the couch while he plays on the iPad.  The only thing missing is a cute little cuddly baby in my arms, which for now will just have to remain in my belly.

If you can remember to do so, and you believe in the power of prayer, there are two children I would like you all to remember when you talk to God today.  One is hospitalized after being beat and burned by her father.  Last I heard she was still in serious condition but improving.  It breaks my heart that someone could harm a child and inflict pain in such a manner.  This incident happened in my hometown and I do not know them personally.

The second child is a girl I know and love very dearly.  She spent a lot of time at our home before we relocated and we get to see her every once in a while when we go back and visit.  Her father has decided to sign over his rights to her.  Her stepfather is willing to take on those rights and take responsibility for her, but she is old enough to know what all this means.  She has always felt unwanted by her father, and I know she is hurting now and feeling unwanted.  We went to town today and wanted to take her with us for a while, but we couldn't reach her Mom by phone. 

Please pray for these children who are enduring physical, emotional, and mental pain.  I know they would appreciate it. Oh- and have a good week!



Congrats on reaching Week 31!! I remember when I was pregnant I would lean forward a little while peeing, supposedly it helps completely empties the bladder.

That makes me so sad about those poor little girls. I will keep them in my prayers!
