31 Week Bump Update {HUGE belly}

31 weeks

*How far along?:  31 weeks and 2 days

*Total weight gain: I think around 31 pounds on the “official” Dr scale.

*How big is baby?: The size of a squash, anywhere from 15.2 – 16.7 inches and 2.5-3.8 pounds. At my Dr’s appointment at 30 weeks 6 days I was measuring 33 weeks. Dr. H said he thinks this baby will be bigger than 6 pound J was.

*Sleep?:My carpal tunnel is killing me in both hands and I wake up with numb arms every day.

*Best moment this week?:  I had a great Dr’s appointment on Wednesday. Dr H. asked how I feeling and I responded “fat and puffy.” His response was “maybe you’re pregnant, you have a good reason.” It made me smile and realize this all temporary and for a really good cause!

*Movement?: Plenty, especially at night. Baby Girl also loves the sweets and they make her dance.

*Food cravings?: Nothing crazy, just more food than I would like to eat.

*Labor signs?: No, thankfully.

*Belly button in or out?:  FLAT and the top is starting to pop out a little. Something that never happened with J’s pregnancy.

*What I miss: Not feeling as wide as a Mack truck.

*What I’m looking forward to:  Moving into our new house! Hopefully 6 weeks away! <— this is still the best answer.


UPDATE: I love Twitter for this reason. My blog automatically publishes to Twitter & right after I published this post I get this tweet back from Liz Lange.

Holy cow! I knew she followed me on Twitter but had no idea she read my pregnancy updates. For those non-pregnant folks out there, Liz is a designer who makes the best maternity line ever for Target! The dress I’m wearing in this picture is Liz Lange :) I’m a little star-struck.

    Wow – your look Great Joanna! I wish I thought about doing a weekly post like this earlier in the game – it looks like fun and a great way to look back and track with baby girl when she grows up. 

    Seeings as I am sitting at 37 weeks right now I’m guessing its a little late :)

    How exciting about Liz Lange… star struck? I dont blame you… but I think we can agree you do look great in that Dress :)

    That is SO cool and you look so amazing. I know you dont feel that way but want to hear something funny? When we talk I still imagine you all skinny and shizz. Why is that? Like I am in denial that you are pregnant or something.
