How far along: 31 weeks and the size of a pineapple – a little over 16 inches long and 3 1/3 pounds.
Gender: Sweet baby girl!
Maternity clothes: Yes.
Belly button in or out: Out.
Sleep: Well… that one week of good sleep was nice. It’s back to feeling unbelievably uncomfortable with at least a couple of times waking up per night. My back and shoulders are really starting to ache from sleeping on my side. I am counting down the days until my prenatal massage in a few weeks, but Mike has been awesome about rubbing my back almost every night until then. 🙂
Best moment this week: This has been a good week! We got the whole inside of our house repainted (including the nursery), and we are loving the fresh new look. We’ve also had a great weekend that included our first baby prep class – Baby Essentials. We learned all about diaper changes, bathing, swaddling, feeding, holding, soothing, etc. We both enjoyed it and learned some new things, and Mike may have been the best swaddler in the class! I was very impressed. My dad then came in town yesterday, so we went to dinner with him and watched a movie at our house before he hit the road again this morning.
Miss anything: Sleeping comfortably, standing up easily, and being able to see my toes. 🙂
Movement: Nothing has changed here… Molly is still quite the little soccer player. She was all over the place in our class yesterday, so Mike and I just sat and watched my belly changing shapes which never gets old… or less weird.
Cravings: Sweet and spicy. Had some delicious jalepenos wrapped in bacon last night. Mike took one bite and his mouth was on fire for 10 minutes, so I gladly devoured his too. Also had another krispy kreme donut today. I figure one a week isn’t that bad, right? Especially since I could down at least 5 a day and be happy. 🙂
Looking forward to: A pretty low-key week around here which will be nice. Hoping to continue “nesting” by cleaning out the house a little more and getting this place in order. We’re getting there!
