31 Weeks on 05/14/14. Only 6-9 more weeks to go! How crazy does that sound?
One of these days I will pull out my real camera again. I always mean to but then the battery is dead or I’ve already taken my bra off. Both of those were true today. I must plan ahead better. I’m thinking that I might take my photos on Tuesdays instead. Wednesdays are always busy, crazy days for us with Church in the evening.
I’m feeling great. I went to the chiropractor and she fixed my back pain. I DID however experience the most killer leg cramp of all time last Thursday night. It was so painful that my leg was sore for 3 entire days after. I’ve never experienced that before in pregnancy. Yes I’ve had leg cramps but not that intense. I emailed my midwife Viv just because I stupidly googled “leg pain after leg cramp in pregnancy” and was met with a ton of BLOOD CLOT warnings. Which are terrifying. I know I don’t have one, but it wasn’t an idea I wanted running around in my mind. Viv just said I might need an additional supplement if the cramps continue and she gave me real blood clot symptoms to watch out for. I have none of them as expected. Google just freaks me out!
So even though I’ve been feeling great physically, I have been really grumpy. I wish I could kick that and just be happy all the time. Because I really do love being pregnant, but I don’t know what is up with my increased moodiness. It’s probably the hormones or something right?
Tilly is still hanging out on the right side of my uterus. She must be pretty comfy. I can tell she is super low and she has been head butting/punching my cervix and MAN I forgot how surprising a feeling that is. It’s not painful just makes me jump almost every time. She’s also gotten me in the bladder a few times and I’ve had to run to the bathroom. She is most active at night and I love laying in bed feeling her bounce around in there. It really is the best part of pregnancy.

I washed 2 loads of baby clothes so all the newborn to 3 months stuff I have is clean and folded. But not put away. I really need to take the guest bed that’s in the nursery down so I can have room to do stuff. So that’s about it on the nursery progress end of things. OH I did get 6 new girly cloth diapers in the mail as well but I haven’t prepped them for use yet. She won’t be in them for a few weeks anyways so I have time.
The boys are being really sweet and kissing my belly whenever I ask them where baby Tilly is or where their sister is. I’m surprised how interested William is. Henry could care less when I was pregnant with William. The only way he would come near my belly was if I asked him where my belly button was. Totally different with William! He is all over the belly. It’s adorable!

John’s been really busy with work but I think he should be with us this upcoming weekend (which is a long weekend!). I’m extra excited to have some family time together. It’s just not the same without him around. That plus the nice weather has me excited for the weeks to come.
As for comparisons: I was really emotional this week while pregnant with William and I was feeling movement really low when pregnant with Henry. So pretty similar on all fronts there. Here are the photos. Henry, William, Ottilia
