31 Weeks!

How far along: 31 Weeks

Size of Baby: Four navel oranges

Weight Gain:  +24

Symptoms: More braxton hicks. This is the first week I've been uncomfortable sleeping too. I just feel so...pregnant. hah!

Clothes: Maternity. A few days ago I wore a tunic from "pre-preggo" days - it barely covered the belly. Oh jeez. 

Cravings/Aversions: Pineapple. It's a weird one I haven't had yet. But yum! Also - eggs are no longer an aversion!  

Movement: Kicking away! I love feeling her so much. It's super cool. 

Worries: Not to many actually. It's been a pretty good week of calm. My mom is bringing all our baby stuff out this weekend, and the nursery will be able to be put together! I think my biggest worry is baby positioning. I keep reading that anterior placentas can mean a more likely sunny side up baby, which is apparently hard to birth naturally. Guess I'll be researching how to turn a baby with it! 

Milestones: Bee's eyes can respond to light now and the irises can dialate! 

Best moment of the week: I feel like I look pregnant, no matter what I wear. It's a pretty nice feeling, strangely enough. We made serious progress on both our shower AND the nursery this week too. Yeah buddy!
