31 Weeks

31 week belly shot

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 31 weeks

Size of baby: She's about 3 1/2 lbs and 16 inches long

Total Weight Gain: 28 lbs. (13 1/2 inches gain around the waist)

Maternity Clothes: Mostly maternity...and at home I wear Rick's t-shirts. I'm getting to the point where anything too snug is really annoying.

Gender: Girl. {Harper Grace}

Movement: a LOT. And the last couple of days it's gotten really uncomfortable. I think she flip-flopped or is sideways because I am having a lot of painful pressure on my right side. But I still love to feel her squirming around in there!

Sleep: Not very much. And on the couch. I can't get comfortable in bed and I can't deal with Rick's snoring at this point. Once I wake up for whatever reason in the middle of the night, I'm having a terrible time falling back asleep. Pregnancy is the only time in my life when I've had to deal with insomnia.

What I miss: Sleeping in my bed. And sleeping with my hubby (if you know what I mean) (sorry if that's tmi...but come on! We're going on 3 months of pelvic rest and we've probably got another 3 months before the all clear...so if we seem a little cranky we've got a pretty good excuse :)

Cravings: My appetite has been pretty blah, but one thing I can't seem to get enough of lately is Cocoa Puffs. Good thing they are healthy and jam-packed with nutrition. Ha!

Symptoms: Back and sciatic nerve pain, mild nausea, and exhaustion

Best Moment this week: Making it to 31 weeks...every week I make it without any complications is a huge relief and blessing!
