Weekly Bumpdate > 31 Weeks

Hope everyone is having a safe and happy Halloween weekend!  We spent our Friday evening watching Friends, eating pizza, and handing out candy to kids!  It was kind of fun doing the grown-up, homeowner thing on Halloween. Haha.

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!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
