I can't believe we only have 2 months to go. I finally feel like we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The thought of actually holding our little babe soon makes me so happy!
How far along: 31 weeks 1 day
Size of baby: About 16 inches long and 3 1/2 pounds
Weight Gain: 24 pounds
Maternity Clothes: Jeans are all maternity and a few tops are too.
Gender: I am getting anxious to find out!
Movement: Lots of moving. Starting to feel little hands and/or feet up in my ribs. I'm hoping it's feet but at my appointment last week baby was still breech so I'm thinking it might be hands. There's still plenty of time to get turned around but he/she better start thinking about it soon.
Sleep: If I could actually get into my bed I think I would stay there for at least a couple of weeks. :)
What I miss: My bed. I haven't even tried to lay in it for the past few weeks, just hurts too much and is not worth it. I also miss having energy, I just feel so tired and worn out all the time and I hate that.
Cravings: Not much. The last few weeks I definitely hit the point where I just can't eat much anymore and if I do eat too much I feel sick. I have been trying to remember to eat a little bit here and there throughout the day. One thing I have been craving though is lots of different liquids. Usually I just drink water all day but lately I can't get enough flavored water, milk, crystal light, juice, whatever I can find. Yum!
Symptoms: Lots of cramping and Braxton Hicks. Swelling and headaches are back. :( And my favorite...nesting! I think Matt is nesting too because we have been doing some major Spring cleaning and organizing around the house. It feels good to be getting all this stuff done now. It's amazing how much better you feel when it's clean behind your washing machine and under your stove. ;)
Best moment this week: Realizing how close we're getting! Up until 30 weeks I just felt like this baby was never going to come but now I keep thinking, this baby is going to be here...soon!
What I'm looking forward to: Finishing up the nursery. Construction is almost done and we should be able to start priming and painting by this weekend and then hopefully we can get everything in there. This also means we will soon be moving Braden into a big boy bed. I hope it goes okay.
