PREGGY UPDATE: 28-31 weeks

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

And now I bring you a preggy update! 28-31 Weeks

How Far Along: 31 weeks as of yesterday!  Last week of my 7 month!  Then I’ll be 8 months preg.  Whoa.  Scary.

Size of Baby: Georgia is the size of a pineapple now!  My precious pineapple!  She is about 16 inches long and weighs about 3.5 pounds!  Holy cow my baby girl’s a growin! 

Maternity Clothes: Ummmm I love them.  I love my jean shorts and cute maternity t’s.  I still rock some non-maternity stuff like maxi dresses and flowy tops.  But when it comes to bottoms.  It’s workout clothes or my bump-friendly shorts.  I am super excited to wear this on Friday for my maternity photos!  

Stretch Marks: None yet.  Coconut oil and BioOil nightly with some Burt’s Bees Tummy Butter mixed in during the day are still my weapons of choice.  But man am I itchy!!!
Sleep: Sleeping is a little harder these days.  I wake up lots, either to go to the bathroom, reposition or walk off a cramp.  I’ve been having the words cramps in my calves and my feet!  Any suggestions from you mamas would be great!  I drink tons of water every day (3 liters) and eat healthy for the most part so I’m not too sure what is going on!

Best Moment of the Week/Past Month:  Well as of late we are on a two-week doctor schedule so that means we get to hear baby’s heartbeat lots more!  And I loooove it!  We also had our Lamaze class this past Saturday and that was pretty amazing.  I’m a huge planner and it just made me feel more organized and prepared.  And can we talk about how “into” it my husband was?  I die.  Just precious.

 Movement:  Matt and I are convinced that we are growing a baby bunny, a baby kangaroo or a professional break-dancer.  She moves like crazy!!  ALL THE TIME.  No sweet needed.  I actually have been watching my sweets a bit more lately because she does move so much and when she’s on a sugar high – she uses my ribs and bladder as punching bags.  When we were at our check-up last week, my doctor asked me if I had eaten a candy bar that day.  I just laughed and said nope, but I had a banana an hour ago.  And he said, “man, can’t imagine what’d she’d do with a candy bar.”  So little bunny/kangaroo/break-dancer – we love you and your little squirms!

Cravings: Still eating everything.  Lately I’ve loved pizza more.

Gender: Still a baby girl :)

Belly Button In or Out: Still in… but wondering if it’s gonna make it’s way out soon?

Wedding Ring on or Off: On and still pretty lose thankfully.  Not sure if I should keep it on or take it off just in case?  Thoughts?

Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Still feeling so blessed to say no!

What I Miss: I. NEED.  WINE.  Red Wine.  Preferably a pinot noir or a blend.  Not for the buzz, for the taste.  I’ve been piling my stash higher and higher with shipments from out wine club and can’t wait to bust out a bottle after baby girl arrives 

What I am Looking Forward to: SO MUCH!  My showers kick off this weekend and my sissy and sissy-in-law are throwing me one on Saturday!  And Friday evening Matt and I have our maternity shots!  EEEEEEEEEEEEEK.  So much fun stuff.

Labor Signs: Nope thank goodness.   Getting a little paranoid about that though.  

Nursery: I switched up her plan a bit.  Oooops.  But we have furniture and it is slowly coming together!  I’m hoping to do her nursery reveal in the next few weeks.  We will see how much I get done.  

Emotions:  So excited!  I want to meet her so bad.  I want to hold her.  And I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that my “to-do” lists will be here after she arrives no matter what.  So hurry up baby girl!  But not really, because I want you to put on some weight and keep growing before you enter my arms.  K thanks!

Coming from a non-preggie (so take this with a grain of salt)... I've heard that putting a bar of soap in bed with you will stop the cramping... I don't know why, I don't know how, but I've heard it works :) xoxo

you are adorable! I hope I am as cute as you when I am pregnant!!

Aww you are so adorable! Loving your bump in the bathing suit- your rockin' it! You are doing the Lamaze? My friend did that and thought it was amazing! I am in the medical field and I am totally going for the epidural- but always get curious about the breathing techniques, who knows, maybe I will change my mind! :)

Oh and PS. Brittany is right, put a bar of Irish Spring soap under your sheets by your feet, helps with the cramping!

No matter what you do, its just common in pregnancy- has nothing to do with dehydration! :)

Why do dogs love baby bumps so much. I wonder if they know something is in there. Not a pineapple, but a human. lol ;)
