31 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far along? 31 weeks 3 days

Size of the Baby? lettuce.. haha!

Maternity Clothes? just bought a few more things... good lord are they expensive!!!! hoping one of my friends is pregnant this same time next year so they can borrow them... id feel better if they got more use than just a couple months!

Gender? sweet mary tyler

Movement? as im typing, it feels like she is trying to escape. its so strange to feel two jabs at the same time, coming from totally opposite sides of my belly.. she's really stretching out in there.. she must sleep like mommy :) although, yesterday mom and i went shopping and she didnt move at all all day. i was starting to get worried until i got in bed last night... she got the hiccups and they apparently woke her up enough to stay awake for the next two hours tapping and sprawling out. i was so thankful for those movements, even if they were CRAZY

Sleep? so-so. two nights ago i got up FOUR times in the night to go to the bathroom... ughhhh. once i come back to bed it takes me about 20 min to fall back asleep.

Cravings? still no crazy cravings.. although matt and i have eaten a bowl of Reese's Puffs cereal at midnight for the past 3 nights in a row :)

Symptoms? my right hip killllllls when i get up from sitting or laying for a long time. have occasional sharp pains on my stomach, usually near my belly button. i read its just everything stretching. had some major shortness of breath the other night. i almost called the doc bc i felt like i could not get a good breath. read that even if i cant feel it, baby was prob pressing into my lung some.

What I miss? smaller boobs. sorry if its TMI but gahhhhhh these things are annoying.

Milestones? none really.

Weight Gain? somehow i lost 3 lbs this week. I thought it was just a fluke but 2 mornings in a row now im at +15 lbs.

What I’m nervous about? nothing this week

What I’m excited about? Her baby showers coming up in January!!! All my friends, family, and cheerleaders are crazy and I have 4 showers in January!!! We cant' wait :)

Baby Center Update for Week 31: This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.
