31 Weeks

Monday, November 19, 2012

My baby bump at 31 weeks from the side:

And from the front:

Total Weight Gain: I am up a total of 8 1/2 lbs. (I gained about 2 lbs this week.)

Movement:  Cullen is still moving all the time!  He pushes on my hip bones, kicks my ribs, and it feels like he is trying to escape through my belly button.  Sometimes his kicks can be a little painful, but I still love it!  I am going to miss all of his wiggles, kicks, and punches.

Boy or Girl? Boy!!!

Food Cravings: Junk food.  Definitely not the things I should be eating.

How I'm Feeling: I still have some days that are really good and some days where I feel really pregnant.  Bending over and getting out of a chair are getting very difficult.  And my belly starts to feel very heavy if I'm up and moving around for a while.  I do a lot more sitting and resting these days.  Only 9 more weeks though...I'm sure I can make it.

Size of Baby: Head of Lettuce (18 in, 3.2 lbs) 

Baby's Development:  Baby's brain is working overtime these days, developing faster than ever.  Connections between individual nerve cells are growing at a frenetic clip, and baby can now perceive information from all five senses.  So what is baby doing all day?  Making faces, hiccupping,  swallowing, breathing, pedaling with little hands and feet, and even sucking his thumb.

Best Part of this Week: Corey and I went to a 'Caring for Your Baby' class at the hospital this past week.  It was fun to watch Corey practice changing a diaper, burping a baby, and giving a sponge bath.  He is going to be such a great daddy!

Also,  we had a shower on Sunday with some of mom's family.  I loved getting to see everyone and enjoy all the yummy shower food and cake!  And Cullen got lots of really cute things.  His nursery is filling up fast!

What I'm Looking Forward To: This is going to be a good week.  I have a shower at work, Thanksgiving, and we get to decorate for Christmas on Friday.  Yay!!!
