31 weeks

How far along?  31 weeks

Total weight gain/measurements: 17 pounds and maintaining:)
Maternity clothes: The next round of dresses that arrived were too big but I really liked one of them. So I quickly went on the website and ordered it in a smaller size! I hope it fits better, can’t wait to wear it! I am hoping to wear it for my maternity photos.
Sleep: I love sleep! So glad that I can sleep decently for the  most part!
Best moment this week: Did  a lot of nesting this week. I received the bulk of my cloth diapers from green mountain diapers. The cloth diapers I showed you last week is more for newborns/ease of use. The bulk of my cloth diapers will be an outer shell with a Cloth-eez stuffer. The brand name of the diaper shell is blueberry coveralls. The diapers had to be washed and hung dry and the cloth-eez had to be washed and dried 4 times. I then stuffed all the shells that I have so far. I did order more because the size I purchased seemed a little big for a newbie baby.
Miss anything? Nope, feeling great!
Movement: Tons of movement! Sometimes it feels like he is trying to tunnel through! Cute ultrasound picture of his profile and the second picture is of him yawning (looks kind of like a muppet, lol)
Food cravings: I was craving thai food this week!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Symptoms: No symptoms really. My gestational diabetes test is August 3rd, can’t wait. I hope it was just a false positive.
Belly button in or out? In but I don’t know how much longer:)
Wedding rings on or off? On, with no problems!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, I really like getting everything organized, feels good! I have also had two 90 minute massages these last two weeks to help with the knots in my back and reflexology for my feet….heaven! They are SOOOoooo nice!
Looking forward to: My 4 hour gestational diabetes test. I test results were at 144 and to be considered normal, I was to be under 140. I have discussed this with a few people that have had similar results and because I barely tested over, they think I will be fine. I hope they are right!!!! I don’t want to have to test my blood sugars.
Days to go: 63 days to go!
Baby development: Baby is the size of a coconut. He weighs around 3 1/3 pounds and is 16 inches long from head to heel. He is heading for a growth spurt. He can turn his head side to side, and his arms, legs and body are beginning to plump up as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He is probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby’s kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that you baby is active and healthy.
