Baby is measuring over 16" long and weighs about 3.3lbs. Her arms, legs and body are starting to plump up with added fat and baby is heading into a growth spurt. Huh, another growth spurt? I mean, I'm glad she's getting bigger, but holy cow, am I going to be huge in 9 weeks!
How far along? 31 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: no change from last week. no comment on overall weight gain. No just kidding, it's not that bad, it's right where it should be.
Maternity clothes? yes. I still wear non-maternity t-shirts around the house at night and to bed but they have become cropped shirts. Last time I had to start wearing the husband's t-shirts to bed and I think it may resort to that in the next few weeks, as mine become shorter and shorter.
Stretch marks? None
Sleep? oh, sleep, heavenly sleep!
Movement? off-and-on. She's especially active at night, around 8pm, when I finally settle down on the couch and she becomes my little dancing queen.
Food cravings? none
Gender? girl. I cannot say how excited I am to be having a little girl. I LOVE the little girl clothes, I love the little girl hairbows, I love the little girl pigtails, I love the little girl bloomers and tights and ruffles and all that comes with little baby girls. I am so excited for a little girl addition to our family!!
Belly button in or out? totally flat
What I miss: the autumn beers. I try sips of Tim's seasonal ales and wish I could drink a bottle, they are so good!
What I'm looking forward to: I have an ultrasound on Monday and am excited to see baby again.
I forgot to mention last week that I got the results of my gestational diabetes bloodwork back and it was normal. Thank goodness! The only thing abnormal was that I have low iron, so need to start taking supplements. I guess I can attribute my fatigue to more than just being a full-time pregnant working mom with a toddler.
<-- Love this picture of Barrett. It was after a long day of work for me, so I can't say I'm looking my best, but he looks too stinking adorable not to share.
