Baby Girl - Week 31

Baby Blog

How Far Along:  31 weeks – 9 weeks left - we are in single digits, people! 

Maternity Clothes: Yup. 

Best Moment This Week: We got out crib, we finally picked out the stroller/car seat that we want, and we got our first baby gift from our registry in the mail (thanks, Liz)!!! Things are just getting more real - and it's awesome! It's crazy to think that we are in single digits of weeks left until she gets here!

Gender: Baby Girl!

Movement: This girl moves a lot! She has times when she doesn't move, but I pretty much feel her all day. It's so funny to see my belly move and jump randomly. In fact, last night was the first time she kicked me right in the bladder. Holy moly, I thought I was going to pee my pants! 

Size and Development: She's about 16 inches and 3.5 pounds. Her irises can now react to light and all her senses are now working. Not sure what or how she's smelling, but its cool that she can.

Food Cravings: Still sweets. Although lately, I've been wanting more home cooked type foods. I think with the weather cooling off, I want my fall comfort food - hence mashed potatoes and meatloaf for dinner. 

What I Miss: Being able to bend over or squat down easily - it's the little things we take for granted. Actually, the squatting down isn't the hard part, it's the standing back up that is more of the challenge.

Sleep: It's still good. I've been blessed with still getting good sleep most nights. It helps that I usually go to bed exhausted. Ha. 

What I am looking forward to: Setting up her room. I can't wait to get everything painted, set up, and put away and make the guest room her room. 

Symptoms: Mainly just fatigue. The heartburn hasn't been too bad this week - thank goodness. For the most part, I just get tired and worn out easier. Overall, I can't complain too much.
