And they just keep flying by my little monkey! Happy 31 weeks to us! WOOHOO! Can you believe you’re going to be here in 9 weeks?! I am getting so excited! Daddy and I are really getting a move on the house these days and in fact, we’re installing new wood floors this weekend. Hopefully next week we’ll put new carpet in your room and be able to start assembling furniture in there! It’s all coming together…but boy we’re really cutting it close haha!
This is what you look like from the outside this week:
Symptoms: Fetal movement, fetal hiccups, sciatica, tight/tingly breasts, vaginal discharge, emotional/hormonal, linea negra, congestion, braxton-hicks, round ligament pain, insomnia, mild edema in hands, furry tummy
Weight Gain: 18.5lbs
Here’s what babycenter.com has to say about your development this week:
This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He’s probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby’s kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.
I think the countdown has begun princess! Happy 31 weeks, here’s to the next 9! I love you!!
