31 Weeks!

I’m 31 weeks already!! I cannot believe it!!


How far along? 31 weeks, 2 days.

Total weight gain/loss: Still up about 21 pounds, though I fluctuate daily.

Maternity clothes? Definitely. I can still wear some non-maternity tops if they are stretchy.

Sleep? I wish. I think this is preparing me for a newborn. I wake up every hour to pee or change positions. My hands are pretty much always numb and tingly and my back hurts. 🙂

Stretch marks? Still none! However my belly button is getting more and more shallow…

Best moment this week: Scoring a killer deal on a changing table and finishing some sewing projects.

Miss Anything? Coffee. Being able to bend down and get back up on my own.

Movement: Yes! She is very active. You can also see my belly move, and she responds when Leon or I talk to her.  

Food Cravings: Chocolate peanut butter ice cream, lemon pound cake, cinnamon sugar sopapillas, chocolate.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Raw hamburger or chicken & any pungent or strong smell really bugs me.

Gender: It’s a Girl!

Pregnancy Symptoms: Swelling, Carpal Tunnel, Round ligament pain, heartburn… and some others I’d rather not talk about! The carpal tunnel is getting worse every day. My back has started hurting more.

Labor Signs: Nothing new!

Wedding rings on or off? Off –way too swollen! 

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Nervous!

Looking forward to: Getting the nursery put together.
