Weekly Belly Pic – 31 Weeks

So this is not my typical belly picture. This is my costume from the belated Halloween party (if you are wondering why the hell I attended a Halloween party 2 weeks late, read this post to catch up). I forgot to take a 31 week belly pic yesterday, so this will have to suffice. Pardon the picture quality; it’s from my husband’s cell phone and his phone doesn’t have the best camera.

How far along? 31 Weeks, 1 day
Total weight gain/loss Up a whopping 28 pounds as of last appointment. Yikes.
Maternity clothes? Affirmative.
Stretch marks? OMG. Yes. Tuesday night, I discovered some on my hips. Not really my belly, but the side where my belly meets my hip. SOB.
Sleep Is a distant memory.
Best moment this week Our BABY SHOWER!
Movement She moves.. A lot, when she wants to. She has no pattern, no routine and sometimes I have to sit there and shake her to make her move. I did that this morning, and she sleepily woke up, got the hiccups and then started kicking the HELL out me. I was happy.
Food cravings Nothing huge this week.
Gender Girl!
Labor Signs None.
Belly Button in or out? Still an innie.
What I miss 8 hours solid sleep!
What I am looking forward to Meeting my little girl!
Weekly Wisdom Take it easy, and slow down…
Milestones IDK, is 31 week a milestone? Hehe.

And following their instructions. I have some pretty stiff competition. It only takes a few minutes, and you could help an up and coming mommy blogger take off and get some recognition. Thank you!

31 Weeks – Baby Naval Oranges

Your baby now weighs as much as four navel oranges. (Length: over 16 inches, head to heel.)

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.
