So once again I've been terrible about the weekly updates, but one week has been pretty much like the next so you're not missing anything :-)
How far along: 31 weeks
How big is baby: According to the Bump, (which likes to compare baby to fruits and veggies) baby boy is the size of a pineapple. What to Expect App says a head of lettuce, but that will probably change tomorrow
Total weight gain: good question...20 maybe? I didn't gain anything between my last dr's visits, but she wasn't concerned about it
Sleep: last night was terrible....no, that's an understatement. I've been sick the last 3 days or so and last night I slept maybe 2-3 hours. I'd love to go back to sleep, but I can't breathe and my body won't let me sleep if I can't breathe through my nose :-(
Maternity Clothes: you betcha
Food cravings : nothing lately
Food Aversions: not that I can think of
Challenges: being sick and uncomfortably pregnant.
Movement: he's pretty active unless I'm up and moving around. It makes me think he's going to be one of those babies that you have to constantly move around with and as soon as you sit or set them down they freak out
Boy or Girl?: Baby boy
What I’m looking forward to: Getting over this cold
What I miss: sleep
Next appt: Bi-monthly OB appt on the 19th
1. I lost my full time job :-( terrible timing...I still have my part time job, but it's not really enough to make ends meet. I've applied for unemployment and am waiting on that. There may be another dr buying the practice and we may have jobs with him, but right now everything is up in the air and it's sooooo stressful.
2. AJ was able to feel the baby (other then just getting kicked in the back at night). They actually seemed to be playing a game with each other. Baby would kick, AJ would push back and baby would kick again, super cute!
3. My mom and AJ's aunt are coming this weekend to paint the nursery! My mom is bringing the glider my sis-in-law gave us and my mom recovered for us. After they paint we can set up the crib. My sis-in-law also refinished dressers she gets from Craigslist and she is aid she wanted to do one for the baby's room so that's going to take care of all the nursery furniture which is awesome (especially with the uncertain job future).
4. Baby shower is next weekend! I can't believe it's almost here, when we set the date it seemed so far away, now it's just around the corner.
That's all I've got, if I'm lucky I'll be back next week for another update, but I'm not holding my breath ;-)
