31 Weeks

These are actually photos from 30 weeks... but close enough, right?!?!?! Life is crazy right now so this post is going to be in completely random bullet points... poor second child! :)
  • I had my 31 week check today and Mr. Mason was 100% healthy... heart rate of 157 and growing on schedule
  • The doctor told me that they want me to pick an induction date in case I don't have him earlier... Either the 18th, 19th or 20th of April (Mon, Tue, Wed) or the following Monday (the 25th). His due date is April 24th (Easter Sunday) and we're leaning toward Monday the 18th... I'll keep y'all posted.
  • I am addicted to Sonic Diet Strawberry Limeades... addicted. I wake up thinking about them and go to bed thinking about them. I can't stop.
  • Other food cravings include.... Cheetoh puffs, watermelon, meats of all kinds, cheese and pasta. What has no appeal to me right now? Anything and everything healthy. hehehe
  • My feet didn't ever swell while I was prego with Luke-Man, but I'm experiencing the occasional swelling episode with this little guy... the doctor said it may have to do with the fact that I'm a teacher and am on my feet pretty much from 7:15 a.m. - 3:15 pm. (and the fact that most days I do it in heels over 5" tall... today I made the mistake of wearing big wedges for my appointment)
  • Mason's "active time" is most definitely between 10:00 and 11:00 at night. As soon as I put my hand on my belly he starts moving like crazy.
  • Luke likes to "show Mason" things and will lift instruct me to lay down and lift up my shirt... then he cars, trucks, books, etc. on my belly (or drives them over my belly) to show Mason. Usually Mason obliges and kicks :)
  • We decided to "revamp" the nursery, and have been working on painting, hopefully I'll have a few pictures later this week
  • Luke is getting REALLY excited :) Every day he asks if today Mason gets to come out and he tells everyone that he's going to be a big brother - so sweet!

I can't believe that we're almost at (or past if we do the induction on the 18th) the 2-month mark - can't wait to meet our new little man!
