The Weekly Run-Down: 31

How Far Along: 31 weeks along. :)

Size of baby: As my {almost} SIL said this week, I hope I don't go into labour this week. Pointy spikes!

Random & Interesting Developmental Stuff:  Here's this week's run-down:

Your baby is gaining more weight than height at this point. Because she's too big to stretch out, she's now forced into the fetal position, which she'll stay in until birth. This this week also boasts some exciting reproductive developments. Having a boy? His testicles are moving through the groin on their way into the scrotum. And if you've got a girl in there, her clitoris is already relatively formed.

Total Weight Gain: Another kilo this week. Yargh.

Sleep: I've been so ridiculously exhausted, I've managed to sleep enough. Two hours go by, I'm up to pee, I stagger back to bed & boom... asleep again. I'll take it whenever I can get it!

Symptoms: Tired, overheated & some super ridiculous baby movements and stretches. 

Cravings: Cottage cheese on fresh bread. I'm planning on having this sandwich for lunch today too.

Gender: Girl, Girl, Girl! {At least I hope so, after our baby shower!}

Movement: Beautiful stretches and slow movements - with the occasional side jabs for good measure.

Maternity Clothes: At this point, I'll wear anything I can still squeeze in to!!

Milestones: Baby girl was completely spoiled by friends and family at our baby shower yesterday. So loved!
What I'm looking forward to: Another hospital class & OB visit coming up this week.

The belly: Still nice and round, pretty bottom-heavy at the moment. I'm going to miss the bump when it's gone.

The bump at 31 weeks is just about right. Respectably pregnant. I apparently passed some sort of threshold at 38 weeks and people now feel free to comment on how ridiculously pregnant I am. I don't mind, though, as I FEEL ridiculous.

I just finished my Maternal Infant class for school and OB clinicals, so it is fun to read your blog and see what you are experiencing. My sis in law is due next month and she is going to let me be in the delivery room. I am pretty excited about that!

Wow, you're getting so close to the end! You look fantastic :) And yes, you will miss that bump. I don't miss being pregnant exactly (not sleeping, pain, not sleeping...) but the bump and the kicks I definitely miss like crazy.
