Bump-date: 31 Weeks


How far along: 31 weeks

Baby’s size: a head of romaine lettuce

Sleep: still sleeping like a rock, when I'm not up 4 times a night to go to the bathroom...

Loving: Halloween candy, oatmeal, my "pregnancy uniform" of leggings and a stretchy long sleeve shirt with a cardigan 

Loathing: salad other than taco salad, the sickeningly-full feeling I get after eating a normal-sized meal, trying to decide on a baby shower dress

Movement: Baby W has finally moved himself out of the right side of my rib cage... only to jam himself right up into the left side. Thus, sitting is pretty uncomfortable, especially when he is having a dance party or making his presence known with a few swift kicks and jabs.

Labor signs: nothing - keeping an eye out for Braxton-Hicks contractions but haven't had any that I've noticed so far

Symptoms: General heaviness, tiredness, some low-back pain 

Wedding rings: getting a little tight, especially if I've had a lot of sodium. I was a little nervous they were stuck the other day, but after a few hours, my fingers got a little less puffy and we were all good.

Mood: good! The weeks just seem to be flying by and I can't hardly keep up. I'm feeling more and more nervous and excited about Baby Boy making his grand entrance!

Husband: is exuding patience with me, which I can't thank him for enough! I am moving slowly and having a hard time getting motivated to do anything other than what is necessary - C has been picking up the slack and keeping us organized. 

Can't wait for: baby shower weekend! So excited to see friends and family, and celebrate the little dude.

Yay, Baby shower! Is this this weekend? How great that you are still sleeping well. I have some good nights and some... less good nights. I try to think of the less good nights as practice for having a newborn again!
