I just keep on getting bigger and bigger, although I might actually look smaller than I did last week? ;)
How far along? 31 weeks
Weight gain/loss: Still 136 lbs. for a total gain of 18 lbs. so far.
Feeling: Huge. Baby girl must be going through a growth spurt. I'm feeling really bloated and full most of the time, and am having nightly Braxton Hicks contractions that aren't particularly comfortable or pleasant.
Maternity clothes? Can't wait to show you all of my new outfits from Seraphine Maternity later this week!
Sleep: It's getting harder and harder to get comfortable, which means it's taking longer and longer to fall asleep :(
Food cravings: Rainbow chip frosting. I may or may not have stooped so low as to eat it out of the can.
Movement? I've figured out her patterns. She sleeps mostly during the early morning through evening, and then is up kicking while I'm trying to go to sleep!
What I miss? Being able to bend down and get on the ground comfortably! Cleaning up Carina's toys has been particularly hard this week.
Best moment this week: Despite her tantrums, Carina has been super snuggly this week. One time she ran up to me saying, "Mommy Mommy Mommy!" and threw her little arms around me. I melted.
What I'm looking forward to: My Mother-in-law will be here from Tuesday through Thursday, just to give me a little break. She calls it an in-home vacation ;)
Next Appointment: August 1st at 32.5 weeks. My OB does 3 week appointments through this stretch.
Milestones: From here on out, baby will gain about a half pound a week! She's around 3.5 lbs. and 16 inches now.
Compared to my 31 week belly with Carina, I feel like I'm carrying lower this time, and more basketball-like. What say you?
