31 Weeks

(Sorry for the crummy iPhone big camera is dead, and I don't know where the charger is.  That's a whole 'nother post. :))

Size of Baby: According to Baby Center, about the size of 4 navel oranges...around 16 inches long and 3.3 pounds!  I just still can't wrap my mind around the fact that she's that big!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Oh, we had a little bit of a jump. :)  Between the last time I went to the doctor 3 weeks ago and now, I was up 7 pounds.  Yes, 7 pounds.  In three weeks.  That puts us at 19 pounds total.

Maternity Clothes: Definitely maternity...the bands on the pants are starting to get a little snug around the belly, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do in a few weeks!

Gender: It's a GIRL!  Emma Ramey

Belly Button In/Out: Still just about flat, and very stretchy looking!  It ain't pretty!

Stretch Marks: I think I might have spotted one yesterday, but then couldn't find it to point it out to Noah a few minutes later...that tells you how small it was.  But I will say everything's just looking stretch marks, but stretched.  It's weird.

Movement: All over the place still!  She kicked the heart monitor at the doctor's office when the nurse went to check her heart rate yesterday...I thought it was funny. :)

Sleep: Still not bad, I've just got to fight the urge to roll over on my belly.  I would be so much more comfortable, but it's just not happening for a few more months!

What I miss: Not really anything!  I am ready not to be achy all the time though.

What I am looking forward to: Getting the nursery DONE...we are so close!

Cravings/Aversions: Not much of anything, just lots of food. :)

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, shortness of breath, and the back/hips are still super's hard to get comfortable unless I'm laying down at an angle or completely laying down in the bed.  And the waddle (especially at the end of the day) is out of control...I feel like a penguin!

Best Moment This Week: National championship!!
