I will continue to make weekly updates between now and D-Day. We’re getting so close to meeting our sweet baby girl!
How far along? 31 weeks
Total weight gain? I’m only posting this because I’m proud of how well I’ve done (which was not expected)…23 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I’m mostly wearing dresses at this point. I have one pair of maternity jeans that fit, and only a few shirts. So instead of buying clothes I’ll only wear for 2 more months, I’ve resorted to wearing Courtny’s t-shirts.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep? Let’s just say Baby C is prepping me for motherhood. I’m uncomfortable, roll around a lot, and generally just can’t sleep.
Best moment this week: This week has not been great for this mama. Between the lack of sleep, swelling and general yucky feeling, I’m just going to hope that week 32 is a little better.
Miss anything? Margaritas. We had Mexican with some friends the other night, and the smell of tequila and lime from the bar such a tease. Boo.
Movement: Baby C must be getting cramped in there. I can feel distinct movements (elbows, feet and butt) and watch her stretch out her long legs in my belly. It’s an incredible feeling, knowing that I’m carrying my daughter in there and not some sort of alien creature.
Food cravings: PopTarts. And, as always, McNuggets.
Anything make you queasy or sick? Courtny eats salmon by the pound. And it’s disgusting.
Labor signs?: Lots of Braxton Hicks contractions this week, but no. No labor signs, thankfully.
Symptoms: Heartburn, fatigue, swelling…and being generally uncomfortable.
Belly button in or out? Definitely out.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody? That depends on who you ask.
Looking forward to: Getting a pedicure on Sunday! My feet need some serious attention. 🙂
Official countdown: 8 weeks 6 days
