How far along: 31 Weeks Baby Size: A little over 3 pounds and 18 inches long! Baby Changes:She is working to pack on a little fat under her skin as she plumps up for her birth-day! Her brain and organs are also continuing to grow and mature to be able to function properly in the "real world." Baby Movements: She is definitely a little mover at times! I'm beginning to notice her hitting and punching new places she's never been in before. I think it's showing that she is running out of space and is looking for every square inch of wiggle room! ha! Food Cravings: Gluten free / Dairy free Cinnamon Sugar Donuts. I know... so unhealthy, but hey, what pregnancy craving is usually healthy?? Sleep: Hit or miss. My body seems to think it is a nocturnal owl some nights! Symptoms:Fatigue, "crampy" braxton hicks, soreness/ real discomfort in my tummy, indigestion. Highlight: I felt a sore knot in my lower stomach the other day when I woke up and was concerned about it. I mentioned it to my midwife at my appointment yesterday and she said it was probably her fist. Yay! I can just imagine her doing the Superman pose with her arm outstretched and her hand curled into a fist... ready to come out of this womb!
This week also marked a change in my clothes. Many of my shirts that I've been wearing the whole pregnancy have suddenly gone from tight to very tight... it's amazing what the difference of a week can make! What I miss:Being able to go for a run in the nice cool fall weather! What I'm looking forward to: Rocking our baby girl in our new glider in the nursery!
Born and raised in Texas... but moved to Kentucky where I met and married my best friend. We were then blessed with two precious little daughters, ages 3 and 19 months. I love the Lord and I am so thankful that He has given me the blessing of serving my husband and daughters in our home!
