31: Summa Time

Oh hey bug bag on the tree. With all the rain, mosquitoes and flies are horrible for us. Please judge.  

Along: 31 weeks

Size of baby:  Bunch of leeks- sweet baby should gain as much as half a pound per week from here on out. Baby is getting more flexible each week in neck and joints. Baby can rhythmically breathe.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 22-24 pounds (my guess)

Maternity Clothes: I love maternity dresses and Matt’s big t-shirts. Anything that lets me breathe and feels airy I’m most happy with! With this heat, I feel hot and sweaty most of the day and while sleeping at night. August baby is a whole new ball game for this mama. 

Gender: Matt and I both think boy. We met a couple who did gender surprise for #3. She thought boy the whole time and ended up with a girl. It’s so hard to know. I think we now tell people “we feel like it’s a boy, but we would be so pleasantly surprised and happy if girl”. We win either way!

Movement: All the time- it wakes me up in the middle of the night. The ribs are getting kicked so much right now- it’s startling and painful. Don’t get me wrong, I love it. Baby is just getting bigger and running out of room, so the movements feel more exaggerated.

Sleep: This week has been not so good. I dream I’m pregnant, so I think that as stomach grows- I’m just more uncomfortable. I have a hard time getting cozy while sleeping. This week I’ve been up for an hour or two in the middle of the night hoping to fall back asleep.    

What I miss: Energy. I also have really bad pregnancy brain, so I miss feeling as sharp as I usually do.

Cravings: chocolate. If I haven’t had any all day, I start to get irritable about it.   

Symptoms: tailbone is always sore, back aches, sun spots on my cheeks, hip socket cramps, poor circulation, insomnia, fatigue. Interestingly enough- I don’t have to get up for the bathroom multiple times a night right now. 

Best Moment This Week:  We were able to see some friends and family this weekend which was super special for me. I’m very sentimental about “lasts” since we are moving here in August. Summer is a beautiful time- to be able to enjoy friends and family was the perfect recipe for success as we continue to get ready for our next adventure.

We also had new floors and new door installed in our house. It’s all coming together for the sale and I couldn’t be more thrilled to watch our little home start to look ready for sale.
