Survey today because I am exhausted and a little sore from carrying groceries in by myself. I would rather be on the couch than sitting at the computer- SORRY
How Far Along: 31 weeks
Gender: Still a boy
Size of baby: According to my ultrasound last week they think he is already measuring 4 lbs 10 oz (thats more than a lb higher than he should be at this point).
Total Weight Gained: 24 lbs. again right on target to gain about 32-35 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: whatever fits at this point. some of my sundresses from last summer are starting to be too small in the belly area but most fit.
Movement: he loves to stay awake late. i feel a lot of kicking between midnight and 1 am, they say that will be the active time once hes born too, so hes already a night owl
Sleep: Still not getting a great nights sleep but I have been able to catch a few naps during the day so it makes up for it. I get up 3-4 times a night to pee and between that and having to hoist my belly to roll over it's not the most restful sleep. Overall not too bad, no leg cramps or restless legs(knock on wood)
What I miss: Hm, wearing cute summer clothing, last summer was my first real thin summer and I was proud of my body and how hard I worked to get it. This summer it's not the same. I know I look good for a pregnant woman but I miss my bathing suits and shorts!
Cravings: Lemonade but only Minutemaid Light since it's really tart. Watermelon, french fries, crackers. Weird.
Aversions: Salads. I know I need them to get in some veggies but lettuce is totally unappealing right now.
Symptoms: Lots of movement and some contractions, other stuff but it's probably TMI for blogs haha.
Best Moment this Week: Having another ultrasound and seeing his sweet little profile. It is crazy how fast this pregnancy went but knowing he will be here in less than 60 days makes me smile.
We had a good week. Nice doctor's visit other than them telling me that he is measuring like 3 weeks ahead of schedule. Up until this point we have been behind and he was on the small side. We have another ultrasound in 3 weeks to double check the measurement since it's possible that it could be off. If he continues growing at the rate that he has(and is really almost 5 lbs) they think he will be a 10 lb baby! Yikes that scares me. It also makes the doctor want to push for a c section which I am not into. I would rather just be induced. Those are things we will discuss after the next ultrasound. I still haven't finished the nursery but I am working on it and swear to get pics asap!
Phone shots for the week:
and a clothed pic- this was before dinner with toms coworkers. i was already hot and sweaty and was still inside- summer is no joke when youre 8 months pregnant
