31 weeks

A little behind again!  Joshua & I have really tried to be productive lately so we can be ready for anything! 

How far along: 31 weeks +

Size of baby: She is over 16 inches long. She weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. She can turn her head from side to side, and her arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath her skin. She'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

Weight gain:  21 lbs

Maternity clothes: mostly all maternity clothes besides some shirts/dresses

Gender: Girl!

Movement: Yes!  This little chicky is a crazy one!

Sleep: Still not sleeping that great...
Symptoms: Back pain, Swollen feet - but I dont think my belly button will pop out, I guess I just assumed it happened to everyone until I noticed that mine is still way in! 

Cravings: Cold water. I have always usually preferred room temperature water but lately I prefer super cold water, and as always - Sweets!!   

Best Moment this week:  I scheduled my cerclage removal!  I will have my stitches out on November 16.  The little miss isnt expected to come then - but just means we are closer!  We also went to beautiful Duluth, MN yesterday to watch my brother play football - it was a beautiful day out!  They didnt win unfortunately, but it is always nice to see him!

What I am looking forward to:  My first shower next weekend & getting the dresser for the baby room...I am feeling the need to get organized & prepared! 

Have a great week...ill have a picture update soon! 


  1. Glad to hear everything is going well. Hope you have lots of fun at your shower next weekend! I can't wait to see what kind of cute things you get :)

  2. My belly button is still in too, Ang! I thought mine would pop out but at 35 1/2 weeks, it's still pretty far in there :) It's almost showtime, right :)


Thanks so much for your sweet comments!
