31 Weeks


How far along: 31 weeks

How big is baby?: The size of a head of lettuce: 18 inches and 3.2 pounds. Usually I just go by what my pregnancy app says, but THIS week, I actually know! We had a surprise ultrasound yesterday due to some concerns my OB had. Little girl is 3lbs, 4 oz as of yesterday! 

Total weight gain: I decided to pony up and step on the scale this morning. No idea how much I gained this week, but my total right now is 23 pounds, which is a lot less than I was thinking, so I'm cool with it. 

Maternity clothes: Mostly maternity clothes, some pre-pregs pants that still fit and a few longer shirts that are working.

Best moment of the week:
 Seeing my little baby again! Yes, I was stressed because my doctor had concerns, but everything looked perfect, and she's beautiful. We got to see her in 3d for a bit and it was amazing to see her little face in such detail. I can't wait for the next 9 weeks to pass so I can see her for real. 

Food cravings: Peanut butter, milk, Cheerios, anything sweet and unhealthy.

Food aversions: Nothing really.

Symptoms: If you read this post in which i detail how I feel, you know what's going on. If you didn't, just know that it's rough, but seeing her yesterday made me realize just how worth it all of this is. 

Movement: Less movement overall, but the movements I have are stronger.

Gender: Girl- we double checked yesterday, she's a girl! 

What I'm looking forward to: The weekend, so I can try to get some sleep. This is my last free weekend before having a month straight of Saturday baby showers, both my own and other's

What I miss: My old body :( I never appreciated just how great it was, I was always too busy harping on my flaws... I miss those flaws.

Next appointment: 2 weeks will be my 32 week appointment, on the 21st.
