Weekly Update

Ugh...I woke up with a headache today.

How far along? 31 Weeks. Only 9 weeks left...or if you're talking to my stepmom, only 5 weeks left. She really thought people were pregnant for 36 funny.
Total weight gain/loss: Too much...sorry future nutritionist! Although...I did only eat ONE cookie yesterday. It was 5 inches in diameter but it was only one cookie!
Maternity clothes? Yup
Stretch marks? Nope, not yet!
Sleep: Awful
Best moment this week: I got a couple more items for the baby's room this week. And hopefully, this will be my last week of working 3 days...I'm going down to 2!
Woes: Sore ribs, sore pelvis, bad sleep
Movement: She's still wiggling!
Food cravings: None
Gender: GIRL!
Labor Signs: Had a few Braxton-Hicks this week...they weren't painful, but they were by no means comfortable.
Belly Button in or out? It's still in! Poor thing is hanging in there...
What I miss: Sleep...I know, I know, wishful thinking...maybe in a year I'll catch up on that.
What I am looking forward to: Hopefully this warm weather sticks around. It's been sooo nice :) Our animals have really enjoyed it too! Oh, also Dana *might* be going to this 2 week training course in late April so there could be a good excuse to leave work earlier than planned! Although, the downside means he won't be back home till May 5th! Eek! That's cutting it close...
Weekly Wisdom: Stop reading about all the bad stuff that could happen. I've noticed that I become very symptomatic when I read certain articles.
Milestones: My rings are getting snugger of a morning. This could be the onset of the dreaded swelling that I keep reading about! Should I start memorizing how my ankles look now so that when they disappear I'll be able to remember them? My ankles and belly button are probably going to disappear on the same day...that'll be great. I'll take a picture for everyone.

I subscribe to this weekly email from a website that caters to pregnancy. Each week they send me a little update on what's going on inside my uterus. This week they said that the baby is about 3.5lbs which is a similar weight of 4 oranges.

    OK, ok, let's use 4.3 just for argument sake,,,
    9 X 4.3 = 38.7 !!! Not 40 !!! I'm just saying....
