31 Week Update


Continuing my little update survey that I stole...

How far along: 31 weeks
Baby's size: 3-4 lbs and gaining roughly a lb a week from here on out
Sleep: Officially having trouble sleeping, even if I'm tired. Can't get comfortable. Slight insomnia. Exhausted.
Maternity Clothes: Purchased some cute trimester three things this past week because I was feeling huge and insecure. There's no hiding it at this point!
Food cravings: None what so ever.
Food aversions: Not really.
Symptoms I have: Swollen feet and ankles, back pain and just generally uncomfortable. No major symptoms though. 
Doctor’s Appointment: Every two weeks now yall! It seems like its so often.
Movement: Tons. He's long now so I feel him on both sides of my belly at once and John Paul can always feel him. 
Belly Button: Still an innie but so so close to popping out...
Gender: Boy! (Unless the doctor got it wrong...)
What I’m looking forward to: Setting up a baby room (this may become a reality in a couple of weeks!  Eee!)
What I miss: Feeling attractive. Just being honest you guys. The stuff pregnancy does to your body is not great for your self esteem. It's not that I'm depressed or feeling hideous, but I certainly don't feel sexy. My body feels foreign to me. 

Ahh! Less than 2 months til my due date! This pregnancy is flying by. :)


  1. Slept the last three months sitting up in a recliner with Jennifer. She thought when I stretched out in a bed it was time to play football. :)

  2. I slept sitting up... or laying on the floor getting sick... Hang in there mama the real adventure is about to begin :) your due date (and precious bundle of cuteness) will be here before you know it!

  3. I can totally relate to the body feeling foreign thing...that's a great way to put it.
