31 Weeks

January 14, 2015

The Bump claims the baby is the size of a pineapple this week, I'd like to disagree. 
I'm pretty positive I'm harboring something more Ellie sized in there right now. 

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 31 weeks
Size of baby: Baby H is the size of a pineapple
Maternity Clothes: All maternity pants and bras, and Piko tops. Plus whatever of Jeremy's that fits. - added a support belt to the mix. 
Gender: Boy
Movement: Not as jerky as it was, he seems to have run out of room and randomly sticks things out and I have to push them back in.
Sleep: Decent this week as long as I take an Epsom salt bath before bed. Only getting up twice to potty is pre-pregnancy sleep behavior for me!
Cravings: Anything and everything that isn't currently residing in my house. I can't quit eating this week and have done well with not having a lot of cravings. 
What I miss: Touching my feet, and not having rib pain. This kid is long, and I'm only comfortable when he isn't stretched out and settled down in the bottom of my uterus. When he stretches I can feel him the entire length of my torso... which isn't a lot to begin with. 
Highlight this week: Nursery prints came in and I'm in love. I'll share the nursery on here once it's completed, just a few more things. 

In all seriousness, pregnancy hormones need to give me a break this week. I am constantly ticked off at work and don't have the patience for anything. 
At home I'm great, but Jeremy makes that easy. 

I think I'm going to have to suck it up and say something about my pain at the next appointment. That has a lot to do with my mood. If I'm standing my back is killing me, and when I sit this kid shoves into my ribs so much that my skin goes numb and my muscles ache. 

8 1/2 more weeks to bodily freedom.
