How far along? 31 weeks
Baby Size: About the size of a Coconut – 18in, 3.2 lbs 🙂
Total weight gain/loss: 30lbs.. these pounds just pack on like nobody’s business!
Stretch marks? Nope
Symptoms: Back pain, neck pain. Belly is definitely feeling heavier towards the end of the day so walking more is getting rough!
Sleep: Getting more consistent with waking up twice a night and having more trouble getting comfortable enough to sleep! Ahhh
Best moment this week: I was feeling pretty bummed with my weight gain one day, and while I was at Target, a woman with her daughter randomly told me that I looked beautiful. It was really nice to hear that from a mother. I’m sure she knows how hard it is sometimes to feel confident and beautiful when your body’s changing so much.
Worst moment of the week: The WORST leg cramp/Charlie horse on Wednesday. It’s still incredibly sore. Thankful for hubby for massaging it each night to ease the pain! I think this one lasted 30 seconds. Pure torture.
Miss Anything? Eating chocolate without guilt. Too much caffeine? Hey – It’s Halloween!
Movement: Very regular mid-morning squirms (10am?) and the usual evening movements around 10pm. He also like to wriggle about after I eat a Cutie (California mandarin)!
Food cravings: Noodles noodles noodles.. and burgers.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not that I’m aware of 🙂
Labor Signs: No, but he sits really, really low and the sensations are getting pretty surreal with him getting so much bigger!
Belly Button in or out? In-betweenie – not much change here!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Tired… I wish I could be home more often. Lying down feels so good on the belly! Gravity is kicking belly’s butt!
Looking forward to: Our baby shower next weekend!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
