Button Blogs! Normal and Boring are the Best

I'll be 31 weeks pregnant on Monday. That's seven and a half months. I wish I could form my symptoms into some amazing adventure of how amazing the human body is, but that just ain't happening. I'm on my fourth draft of this post so far. I don't have anything interesting to report. I'm about ten weeks away from meeting Button and excitement has really taken over. I have been doing labor training in some way every day whether it be squats or contraction training, or just going out for a walk with Squishy.

I didn't know what to expect with how in tune I was going to be to Button when I have Squishy all the time. But really, since this pregnancy has been so utterly boring (that's a good thing!), I don't feel like I've changed that much.

I've been more logical about emotions, haven't cried at nothing for a while. Sometimes I'll get frustrated and just get over it right away because I assume I'm not in control of my own hormones at the moment. Medically speaking I'm doing well, which is also boring. My weight gain is normal, my fundal heights are normal, blood pressure...you guessed it! Normal. 

The major difference between these two pregnancies is that I'm ready for labor and delivery this time. I'm actually excited about it. I've done it once before not knowing anything about what it was going to be like. I'm so excited to see Button's little baby face and have that feeling of "Oh my God, it's a baby!" all over again. It truly was magic the first time. I'm even more excited to introduce my Assistant House Manager to her little Deputy.
