31 weeks...

How far along: 31 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 25 pounds.  At my appt last week my OB was pretty shocked that I gained 11lbs in 2 weeks, but I have been fluctuating a bit so really it is only 7lbs in 7 weeks...that's what he said and he is looking at that pretty close I guess.  Eh, I knew it would start to creep on!

Maternity clothes: Definitely.  And they are great!

Stretch marks: No new ones.

Sleep: Been doing ok with sleep.  Minus the fact that DD thinks it is ok to make her way to my bed in the middle of the night...:)

Movement: Pretty much any time now.  Love it when I am standing and can feel it well above the belly button...

Cravings: This pregnancy doesn't really have me craving certain things...well, I am not craving sweets like I was with DD, so wondering if DH's grandma is right (about this one being a boy)?
Gender: Surprise...so exciting to do it this way!!!
Symptoms: Swelling, definitely (almost to the point of hurting now).  No more rings for me!
What I miss: Not a whole lot.

What I look forward to: Meeting this little miracle.

Moods: Feeling good!  And a bit tired...

Milestones: Another week down!

Medical Concerns: I think the swelling might start to be a concern, but my blood pressure has been ok (minus at my military physical for the reserves this weekend, it was a bit high then). 
Weekly Wisdom:  Mid-calf military boots are not a pregnant woman's best friend.  I will take a pic in a few weeks when I have reserve duty again and post them on here.  It was disgusting to see how bad my calves swelled up!
Best moment this week:  Friday will be awesome as DH comes back from being overseas for about 3 weeks...
Worst moment this week:  Haven't had a worst moment.  Hoping not to!


  1. Glad you're continuing to do well!

    YIKES about calf-high boots. Sounds like the swelling moves "up" from the ankles?? :)

  2. Wow, 31 weeks! Other people's pregnancies just seem to fly by while mine seems to drag. Is it like that for you, too?
