31 Weeks

Yes – you read that right. I’m only 31 weeks. Baby D has been measuring small all along and my doctor finally decided to change my due date from Sept 16th to Sept 30th. Boo.

How far along? 31 weeks.

Maternity clothes? Yep. But I’m so sick of them! So I’ve been making my non-maternity clothes work. Throw on some leggings or add a tank top – hey it works! 🙂

Stretch marks? None at all on my belly. So crazy – I really thought I’d get a lot since I have some from before.

Sleep: I’ve been starting to wake up more to pee at night, which is annoying. I try not to drink too much water in the evening but I get so thirsty!

Best moment this week: Baby D has been getting the hiccups –  so cute!!

Miss Anything? Red wine, sleeping through the night, my non-maternity clothes.

Movement: LOTS! Especially at night. But I still love it!

Food cravings: Sweets, milk, chocolate. I ate an entire chocolate cake in a week – I think Josh may have had one or two pieces. The sad part was that I didn’t think about putting a scoop of peanut butter on top of the cake before heating it in the microwave until the last piece. That stuff was GOOD!!

Anything making you queasy or sick: I had a bite of Josh’s pork sandwich the other day and it still tasted gross, but nothings making me sick.

Gender: Sweet boy!

Labor Signs: LOTS of braxton hicks contractions. Which is why I’ve been drinking a ton of water and getting up all night to pee. My stomach gets tight and the right side mounds up when I have a contraction. It doesn’t hurt, but it’s not very comfortable. I had one really bad one the other night while we were taking a walk. It was so uncomfortable, I thought I was going to have to ask Josh to go get the car and drive me home!

Symptoms: Just contractions, a big belly and getting up all night to pee.

Belly button in or out? Still in – Josh is sure it’s going to poke out. I think it won’t. We’ll see who wins. 🙂

Wedding rings on or off? My engagement ring is off for good. I never got my wedding ring sized, so it’s just a bit bigger and still fits.

Mood: Pretty good. Impatient and ready to meet my baby and not be pregnant!

Looking forward to: Our tour of the hospital is next week. We already took a childbirth prep class and a breastfeeding class. But I must read too much because I didn’t really learn anything new. But I’m excited to do the hospital tour – I think it’ll make me less stressed about the birth.
