31 Week Survey

How far along? 31 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: 1.5 lbs. 30.5 lbs. total
How big is baby? Supposed to be around the size of a squash: about 3.3 lbs, and 16 inches long.
When I had my appt. on Monday my fundal height was measuring one week ahead. Doesn't surprise me, everyone keeps telling me I look huge.
Maternity clothes? Mostly. They are SO much more comfy.
Sleep: Haven't slept much this week. Even though I am exhausted I don't fall asleep until late.
Best moment this week: Getting a lot of things accomplished and having a plan for the nursery. The windows will be replaced in about 3 weeks.
Movement: All the time. I guess he is head down so most of what I am feeling is his feet moving around up by my ribs.
Food cravings: Juice, fresh fruit, especially grapes, ice cream.
Gender: Little man
Labor Signs: Haven't felt a single contraction. I get some random "period-like" cramps here and there but I just drink a lot of water and they go away pretty much immediately.
Belly Button in or out? flat
Stretchmarks? Just like a tiny one on my boob. None at all my stomach! I am using Organic Palmer's Cocoa Butter cream in the morning and this "Beautiful Belly Balm" at night that I got at our local health food store.
How are you feeling? Sore here and there, tired. Overall good though. I have been getting more emotional lately, but it doesn't help that I have been stressed out.
What I am looking forward to: I have a shower tomorrow morning with Chris's dad's side of the family!
What I miss: Not being able to sleep on my back and stomach.
Weekly Wisdom: Just go to bed earlier.....
Milestones: Well I had my first big meltdown two nights ago regarding going back to work, daycare, and how we cannot really afford it, etc. I hate it. And pretty much cannot think about things just yet. Hopefully something works out.
Also I guess I am making colostrum now, but nothing leaking yet! There are moments throughout the day where I am like WOW when did I wake up with these.....!?

31 Weeks!! I feel like I look "tired."

All up front....

How your baby's growing:

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.

And just for fun, a cute picture of the doggies. They wanted their picture taken too!

You are so cute! Thats nice that you are measuring a week ahead! I am hoping to hear that at my next appt since I am always hearing how big I look! Dont stress about the daycare and working..a friend of mine said to me that if you can just stay above water while your kids are in daycare then you are doing all right! :) Its an adjustment that we all have to make, but Im sure it will be so worth it!
