31 WEEKS - RETURN OF MORNING SICKNESS

If you have the time...watch this 1 and 1/2 minute video b/c I think she has way more to say this week than I do.

HOW FAR ALONG:
31 weeks.  9 more weeks left. There isn't a selfie of me this week, b/c when I switched my iPhone to the reverse camera ...I was completely startled by all the chins I saw and haven't quite recovered.  #TheSwellIsReal

WEIGHT GAIN:
 19.5 lbs...supposedly he's packing on 1/2 lb a week...or 2...

SYMPTOMS:
Morning sickness seems to of returned with a vengeance, which means I'm back to lots of small snacks trying to stay full, drinking my famous lemon water concoction, taking Diclegis and rocking the sea bands 24/7. I can't tell if it's better, worse or the same as the 1st trimester...or if I've just become completely compliant with pain and uncomfortableness at this point.  

Also,  I have some pretty severe tension in my left leg that starts around my calf and goes to the bottom of my foot...just under my big toe.  It's super tight and no matter what I do I can't seem to stretch it out.  The part on my foot is numb.  Kind of like when you get pins and needles?  Ya it's been numb all week. Slightly disturbing, but I presume it'll eventually go away.

Also I've locked my keys in my car 3 times now...3.  Pregnancy brain is the realist thing I know.

CRAVINGS:
Lets just call a spade a spade. Obviously I have a thing for grapes.  I find them refreshing and fantastic. 

SLEEP:
Still up 4 or 5 times a night doing the old tuck and roll out of bed to relieve my bladder.  I can not WAIT to sleep on my back again.

BELLY BUTTON, STRETCH MARKS AND WEDDING RINGS:
Belly button is out and poking through my shirt, wedding ring doesn't even fit on my pinky finger...but no new stretch marks.  

EXERCISE:
Swimming and yoga. 

EXCITED:
For my baby shower next week!! I'm completely uncomfortable and dreading sitting in front of my friends and family opening gifts.  Just seems like an incredibly awkward experience.  However, I'm really excited to see everyone.  I haven't seen many people this year...so it's gonna be nice to catch up and splash around in the pool and feel human for a few hours.  Also...and I keep on forgetting it's my birthday next Saturday!  Can not believe I'm turning 21 yet again...it's so amazing how that just works out for me every year.

MISSING:
2014 Kristen...RIP...she didn't know how good she had it :)  

Went and saw Death Cab for Cutie at the Hollywood Bowl with Anthony.  It was an amazing concert and felt nice to get out of the house, but when you're surrounded by a bunch of people drinking booze and smoking weed and you're just a big roley poley blob with your bottle of Arrowhead water...you realize how much you're life has changed and is going to change forever.
