31 Weeks!

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!!


About Em

After the loss of our first pregnancy, we took a much needed vacation to Costa Rica to enjoy each other and clear our minds. Well, as luck would have it, we brought home much more than great memories and great tans...our own little Costa Rican souvenir. Here is our journey!

    Oh what a feeling! Completing 31 weeks. I can totally understand how you felt at completing 31 weeks. Its a mix bag of emotions. Happy, excited, nervous all at the same time.
    Tomorrow I have an appointment for a 4D scan. Really looking forward to it. Hoping that my baby shows his/her face. 🙂
