How far along: 31 weeks
Baby size: about the size of a coconut
Baby's progress: She is over 3 lbs and will now gain as much as a half pound per week until she is born!
Weight gain: I hit the 200 lb mark a few weeks ago at my appointment. Not too concerned about the weight gain because I am looking forward to the challenge of losing it after she is here. Already planning on busting out my 21 Day Fix and that Shakeology. The human body is seriously amazing and I cannot get over the changes it is capable of making!
Maternity clothes: I am rotating through 4 pairs of maternity jeans (Old Navy and an off brand from Burlington Coat Factory that my Mom picked up for me) and my tops are hit and miss for sure but I have gathered a little collection of maternity tops to wear that are so comfy.
Stretch marks: There are still some under my belly button and a couple that have developed where my belly button piercing was. Still slathering that lotion on but there isn't much avoiding it if it is going to happen.
Belly Button in or out: completely flat :)
Sleep: Sleeping has become a little bit of a struggle.Two or three nights a week I find myself waking up anywhere from 1AM to 3AM and not going back to sleep. This makes for really long work days.
Movement: lots and lots of dance parties going on inside there! I love it and it is definitely something that will be missed.
Best moment this week: Getting our first major snowfall and meeting up with Megan to take some maternity pictures in the snow. I cannot wait to see how they turn out! No doubt they will be perfect. Another great moment was getting the phone call that I passed that pesky 3 hour glucose test!!!
Looking forward to: Getting together with everyone for the Holidays and Christmas!
Food cravings: Milk, milk, milk and more milk. Pretty sure we should just buy a dairy cow to put out back because I am easily going through at least a gallon a week!
Weirdest food I ate this week: Nothing new or different
Anything making you queasy or sick: Thankfully nothing
Labor signs: I still haven't had any, except maybe a few Braxton Hicks but not completely sure
What I miss: wine and and non-swollen legs, ankles and feet
Symptoms: Still have swelling going on in my lower legs, ankles and feet but that is to be expected.
Workouts: Nada, I really need to get back into doing some yoga stretches
Things that suck: Just the sleeplessness in the mornings
Nursery? We have not done anything else other than getting her crib put together and purchasing some decorations. I am getting really antsy to get it all finished.
Nesting? Nesting finally kicked in and I have been cleaning and doing laundry like no other! I just want to get everything cleaned up before she comes because I am sure we are going to have all kinds of company over.
