Being 31 weeks! (and more)

OK, so I am 31 weeks and 3 days! 8 weeks and 4 days to go has me thinking both "OMFG" and "YES!! FINALLY!". I can't believe how fast it's going! And weirdly, how slow also! My belly's growth has been slowing but I have been having more and more Braxton Hicks contractions lately. It's now a daily occurrence for me next to heartburn, swollen feet and deathly heat! OMG THE HEAT! It's sooo hot and humid and uncomfortable. Can't wait for tomorrow! THE BEACH!
Still no insane stretchmark. That makes me feel great since it's summer and I am going to the beach with my best friend tomorrow! I will take pics and share! Also on the agenda for tomorrow is hospital registration, which I've been putting off for much too long! YIKES!
I have an O.B. appointment on the 30th and I can't wait! Finally we are going to schedule an appointment for my next and last ultrasound! I can't wait to see how much he's grown!!!
He might come early too! There is actually a funny and weird story behind that. Some friends of mine are betting on when I will give birth. And one of them has a creepy giftof predicting right. She's predicted the sex and delivery date for 3 other women! She was dead-on on me having a boy and she is predicting I will have him on August 6th! He will be full term by then so I can only hope she is right!!!
One wisdom tooth is finally coming out! EEK! I have no dental insurance and I am hoping it wont get infected or something... A funny fact about me: I still have a baby tooth! TRUE STORY!
In other news, my baby shower (which I am now planning) , is on the 12th. I'm scared no one will show up. Because I REALLY need help with getting stuff. I'm on social assistance, single and I pay rent/bills/debts.
So I am crossing my fingers hoping everything

Not much longer!

I am so excited!
31 weeks TODAY! Exactly 9 weeks left! I am going to have my baby in my arms! I am going to be able to hold him, stare in his eyes, tickle him, bathe him, change him, show him off!
I just can't wait! I wish there was a fast forward button I could press and tada! Baby Knox is here!
Such wishful thinking! My next appointment with my O.B. is on the 30th. We'll have my next (and last ultrasound scheduled then! I love him so much!

Thanks for reading this short blog,
Mel & Knox

I am feeling so much better now! Last Tuesday, my best friend (ever), who is also my hairstylist, colored and slightly cut my hair. I now have a 200$ haircut for only 20$! I am so happy! I felt like a princess yesterday! I may not have a baby daddy but I have the best BFF ever!
Aside from having new hair, Baby Knox has been gaining strength! He kicks me so hard sometimes that I squeal! And that's a little embarrassing on the bus. Also I have 76 days to go as of today! I am so excited to meet my little man. And it's really starting to go by fast now! I am so happy about that!! Although I still have next to nothing for him yet... I am waiting until after my baby shower to really buy stuff. I am very low on money so that sucks!! He has started a routine of moving most when I am either waking up or falling asleep, or sitting down relaxing. He also got into the habit of kicking my bladder. Which feels amazingly weird! HAHA! But he mostly only kicks for his mommy! Whenever someone touches my belly, he cowers away and becomes VERY calm. What a Mommy's Boy!
I am so done with pregnancy! Lately everything, not just my feet, has been swelling up. My hands, ankles, feet and even my face. I really do feel like a beach ball! :(
Also my sexy dreams have been on a full out blast lately. I kinda like it because I am single so there.... LOL sorry if TMI for some.
Speaking of dreams, I have been having a few where I am no longer pregnant but I have my baby with me. However he isn't really my baby. I don't understand why but I just KNOW he isn't mine.
I have also kind of started writing my book(s). One is a partly autobiographical piece about my pregnancy and the other is a Young Adult Novel. It's a lot of work and a lot of "really believing in yourself".
I am also into this series called Wicked by Nancy Holder and
Debbie ViguiƩ. It's a great series but definitely for young adults 17 and older. The next book I have in line is Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith
