31 weeks!!

How far along? 31 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Over 16 inches long and weighing in at over 3 pounds! As of Monday though she was weighing in at 2lbs 15 oz.

Weight Gain? 18 as of Monday :)

Stretch marks? Nope, thank goodness for that too.

Belly button in or out? It's still really all over the place :)

Sleep? sleep has absolutely sucked this week for the most part. After Tuesday night I've been waking up at about 2:30 every morning with contractions. Except for this morning, though I think my body was waiting for them to start.

Foods I am loving? Breakfast foods :)

Foods I am hating? Anything spicy, or greasy.

Best moment this week? Keeping Abigail in. Seeing her on Monday. It's been a crazy week.

Movement? Yes!

Symptoms? Less nausea, heart burn at the moment. Contractions, real ones, not the Braxton Hicks, lots of trips to the bathroom, heavy tummy. Sometimes leaking boobs.

Gender? A beautiful little girl!

What I miss? Nothing at all. Though I do miss not having to worry about contractions all the time. Anything I do, or don't do right brings them on.

What I will miss? Feeling her moving around. :)

What I'm looking forward to? Hopefully getting off bed rest this Tuesday, but thats only if the contractions go away completely. Hopefully Skyler let's me work on her name sign today.

Weekly Wisdom: Sleep when you're able, empty your bladder tons, drink tons of water.

Milestone: Having 9 weeks left!

Emotions: I'm all over the place, but whats new right? This week was very very hectic to say the least. I'm worried that my body wants little miss Abigail out a lot sooner then would be best for her. At each dr's appt this week I've heard a new excuse for the contractions, it seems like I said in my earlier post that he is just saying things to make me feel better.




This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.
