How far along? 31 weeks. (and one day)

Total weight gain/loss: Didn't check this morning, so not sure.

Maternity clothes? Of course. Or occasionally Noah's hoodies, but only first thing in the morning when it's cold...

Stretch marks? Noah thinks he spotted a couple faint ones on my side, but I'm not entirely sure they're new. So...maybe?

Sleep: Mediocre. No change expected there.
Best moment this week: Got his changing table set up (well, Noah did - I very helpfully observed) - it's nice to have something in his room. Amazon sent us the crib, too, but they shipped the wrong color, so we're waiting on the replacement. Should be here today. I'll take some pictures of the room once it's all full of stuff.
Movement: Not as much as last week, but still plenty.
Food cravings: Saturday Night Casserole, at the moment. And water. Didn't know you could crave water, but I do.
Gender: Boy.
Labor Signs: No no no.
Belly Button in or out? Still safely in. Hope it stays that way.
What I miss: Non-hurty back. *whine*
What I am looking forward to: The rain stopping. It's been raining since Saturday and isn't supposed to stop until next Saturday. Woe!
Weekly Wisdom: I probably shouldn't complain about the weather when I'm living in a place where 58 degrees is a cold day.
Milestones: Due date is almost exactly two months from today - May 30.

Maybe he'll be born on my Mom's b-day the 31st. With your back pain I hope that you don't have back labor. With Noah I didn't feel a single pain in the front it was all in my back. That's where the tennis ball comes in handy, feels really good rolling on your back if he presses hard while doing it. Not much longer my dear, hang in there. Love you both.(or all three maybe I should say!)

Ah, at least I know what Saturday Night Casserole is. How many people have you confused by saying that? :)
Love sat. night casserole!

Rose - we're actually hoping he holds off until after June 2nd when Noah gets out of his class, so paternity leave will be a wee bit less complicated. He seems to like being inconvenient, though, so I'm betting he's two weeks off from his due date (on either side...). Thanks for the tennis ball tip - I'll have to pack one in the hospital bag. So far Noah's been really good about rubbing my back and putting pressure on when I need it, and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to count on him to do what he can when I'm in labor.

Tarren - yeah, I think we're the only people in the world that call it that. I was really surprised a couple days ago to see a recipe for Saturday Night Casserole (different name, but the same exact thing) on one of my favorite cooking blogs (Pioneer Woman - awesome food porn). I didn't know anyone else ate it.

Hope the back pain subsides! Apparently the name of the game the second pregnancy is OW MY HIPS AND PELVIS HURT! Or so says my new OB.

http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/03/sour-cream-noodle-bake/ There's the link. It was kind of funny - I was just reading through the new reicpes the other day and got about halfway through that one befeore realizing it was exactly what my mom used to make and called Saturday Night Casserole. It's yummy.

Owww, hip pain sucks. I got a nasty cramp in my hip last night - I do not envy you if that's what you're getting often.

Interesting. I don't like onion, so I don't put onion in mine, and I use cream cheese instead of the cottage cheese. I have got to find a way to come down and see you and eat some Saturday Night Casserole!

Thanks to you, I have a new dish for Justin and see if he will eat it, he can be picky. We are on the wedding count down, have the places settled on and now have to pay for them. Though I am getting help, which I am in total shock about. Send me an email butterfly164_2002@yahoo.com with your mailing address so we can send you and your little family an invite. We would love to have You, Noah and the little man up for the wedding next April. Miss you lots
