The bump: I think I had another growth spurt over the weekend. This bump just keeps getting bigger!
How far along: 31 Weeks
How big is baby: From The Bump - The size of a pineapple. He's about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long and weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds this month. He's getting so big, he's probably crowding your lungs. He's going through major brain and nerve development. Eye development, too. His irises now react to light! All five of his senses are in working order.
Weight gain/loss: I gained 1.2 pounds this week for a total of 18 pounds gained so far.
Stretch marks: You betcha.
Belly Button: Still an inie but it's getting stretched out. Also my former belly button piercing looks super weird.
Sleep: I did pretty good this week. I do usually have to get up to pee at some point but have slept really well.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Yesterday I had a major craving for tacos and seriously went to town on them. It was embarrassing how quickly I ate 3 tacos, rice, and beans. Fruit is also a big craving, but I think it's mainly because it's sweet.
Movement: He's still pretty active in there, but I get a lot more jabs and thrashes than these cute little flutters. I've actually had some little yelps and OWs come out some of those jabs are so strong.
What I'm loving: Nearing the end! Plus I'm finally feeling better after last week. The abdominal pain I was experiencing was just plain rough. Tuesday was actually the worst day. I think I came home that night and just slept from about 7pm to 7am. I needed it too. By about Thursday I was feeling better and also got the issue with my foot worked out. It's also currently on the mend as well.
Symptoms: Nothing new in this area. Thankfully.
What I'm looking forward to: I have my work shower this week and our birthing class this weekend. Poor John is probably going to be in for an interesting ride this weekend!
