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!
