{week 31} Happy New Year!

{yeah, I'm behind again.  This was written at the end of week 31, just didn't get around to posting until now.  story of my life}

Week 31 (Dec 29  Jan 4)

Holy cow, I cannot believe it is 2013 already.  What happened to 2012??  It was quite a year, I must say.  And 2013 is looking to be quite a year as well...there is a lot in store for us!  Someday I might actually write one of those "looking back on the year and resolutions for the new year" posts, but no promises.  Life is pretty much insanely busy right now, and it's not looking to slow down any time soon.

Anyway, we started off this week by looking at houses.  And then we pretty much spent the remainder of the week looking at more houses!  It was a long weekend with the holiday, and that was definitely a nice treat!  New Years Eve was Monday, and although Matt had to work a few hours in the morning, we spent the afternoon running a few errands trekking through the snow, and then enjoying a nice warm lunch at Panera.  That afternoon I set up as many house showings as I could, and then we went to dinner with my parents that evening.  As the snow continued to fall, we actually were content with the idea of spending NYE at home together on the couch, but at about 9:00 Matt convinced me that we should spend our last child-less NYE with friends.  So out we went to a friend's house, to ring in the New Year.  I'm glad we went, it was a fun time, but NYE certainly isn't the same when you are 7 months pregnant and completely sober.  Just saying.  Although, for the first year ever, we made it home by 1am, and got up at a decent hour feeling just fine and dandy the next day!  (because of the snow, I didn't play DD this time, so Matt wasn't allowed to really drink much)  No getting home at 4am and sleeping until Noon like in years past.  Yes, we are officially old.

So New Year's Day was rather uneventful, we just hung out at home and then went and looked at 2 houses.  Then we grumbled about the holidays being over, and having to go back to work...blah.  The rest of the week has been kind of a blur...basically we were either working, packing, or looking at a house at any given time.  I think we have looked at 6 houses so far, maybe more, and haven't quite found the perfect one yet.  We have 2 more to look at, though, so we still have some options.  Hopefully by next week's update we will actually have made a decision.  :)

Size of baby: Pineapple

Total weight gain/loss:  34 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Are still awesome.

Stretch marks? Not yet

Sleep: Same old story.

Symptoms: Carpal Tunnel sucks.  That's all I have to say.

Best moment this week: Ringing in the New Year, and thinking of all that is to come in 2013 for us.  Also, stopping to realize that it was our last New Year's Eve as just the two of us. 

Movement: More and more every day.  And this girl definitely takes after her father, getting the hiccups all. the. time.  

Food cravings: Cherry Coke.  I know, not the greatest craving as it involves caffeine {although my doctor has okay'd 1-2 servings a day - thank goodness}, but I can't get enough.  I have been carefully planning my caffeine allotment around meals where there is potential to have a Cherry Coke.  I thought I had hit the jackpot when I came back to work and discovered Cherry Coke in our vending machine, but after buying one I realized it was a Cherry Coke Zero.  And expired.  So that was quite a disappointment. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope!

Gender: GIRL!!!!!!

Belly Button in or out? Still in...barely.

Wedding rings on or off? Off.  

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and stressed.  I'll just leave it at that.

Looking forward to:  A doctor's appointment next week with an ultrasound, and (hopefully) finding our next place to live! :)
