31 Weeks!

How big is the baby this week: Emersyn is the size of a pineapple! Eeek that seems huge.

Due Date:
May 8, 2012

Weight Gain: Up 1 lb this week. Running total: 17lbs!

Symptoms: Big ol' belly! Soreness in my back, hips, and legs. Giant kicks, rolls, and punches from baby girl. Occasional tingling and numbness in my arms, and a little bit of nausea. Also, I've developed some kind of rash along my upper abdomen and sides, and the underside of my arms- not sure it's pregnancy related, but it sure is annoying.

Cravings: Milk and food of any kind.

Aversions: Nadda.

Sleep: I fall asleep fairly easily, but I'm waking up a few times in the night and my back and ribs pretty darn sore. There's really not any comfortable positions anymore. Makes for an uber tired Mama, which then means I fall asleep fairly easily, etc. It's a vicious cycle.

I am loving: Being able to pick out her body parts in my belly- the other day I found her foot, tickled that spot on my belly and she squirmed away:)

I miss: Being able to find a comfortable position, and not being sore all.the.time.

I am looking forward to: My last baby shower is this weekend with our families and my hometown friends!

I'm spazzing about: The bookcase we want for her bedroom is still out of stock, and we're still not 100% sure which stroller we want.

Best thing about this week: My baby shower at work last Friday, JBF, and getting to talk to a pediatrician at our childbirth class this weekend.

Milestones: I have single digit weeks left (9)!! Also, noticed my first stretch marks Saturday night- we'll see how many I end up with by the time she's here!

Movement: Lots of it, and can be uncomfortable. I love knowing she's doing well though!

It's a...: Girl!!! Emersyn Grace:)


  1. Isn't it so weird/super cool when you can kind of tell what little body part is poking at you!?! Loved that phase. Can't believe you only have NINE weeks left!

  2. Can you believe single digits already?! It seems to be going by fast now. Also I am so glad we can be partners with our stretch marks- I hate it when I read a blog and the girl is like 39weeks with no stretch marks... I guess I was hoping that would be me too lol
