How far along: 31 weeks Countdown to EDD: 9 weeks (woohoo single digits)/62 days Baby is the size of a: Pineapple! All five of his senses are working and his brain is becoming more developed.
Physical symptoms:A little bit of heartburn, RLP and lower back pain. Nothing terrible. Oh yeah and blood in my pee without a UTI. And tired. So so tired. Mood: Completely unstable. This was not my week. On Monday, I cried (a lot) when I had to leave my dogs home alone for the first time after we had a fire hazard at the house. Then I cried when I raced home to check on them and realized that my roommate was staying home. Then I cried just because. On Wednesday, I started peeing blood again. Friday I found out that I didn't have a UTI so I'll need to see a specialist to figure that shit out. Saturday I cried because the sandwich place wouldn't put my ham on the side so I could heat it up even though they did it last time. At least pregnancy hormones don't make me ragey. Well, I was a lit bit ragey at the sandwich place. Just cut the ham, pretend you're putting it on the roll and then move it to the side a little bit. Why is that not allowed?
Total Weight Gain/Loss:+17 lbs
Maternity clothes:Yep. I bought the cutest thermals for the holiday season.
Sleep:Same, good. Still peeing all night, but sleeping okay in between.
Best moment of the week: Since last week was not my week, I'm stealing a moment from this week. It looks like Seth might have off for 3-4 weeks around the holidays! He has an education-based job, but the university is only closed for four days. However, he found out today that his lab will be closed from 12/15 to 1/5. So it's unconfirmed, but there's a good chance he can spend more time at home! I'm really happy. Obviously, I'm thrilled that we're having a baby but I'm getting a little emotional about the fact that we only have two months of "just us" time left. I believe that it will be better with three of us, but it will still be different.
Movement: Yep. Baby tried to break out of my left side last night.
Food cravings/aversions: There are 8 boxes of cereal in the pantry right now.
What I miss: I miss when my boobs didn't sit on my belly and squish my lungs.
What I am looking forward to:Thanksgiving and the 34 week growth scan
Milestones: 34 weeks. My doctor (all doctors?) will not try to stop labor starting at 34 weeks so that feels like a big deal. Showing yet: Yes. I usually sleep in a t-shirt and none of my regular t-shirts fit anymore.
