What a week! Today I am officially 32 weeks pregnant, but week 31 was a fun one. It was filled with a weekend to PA for my baby shower and family events. Here are more details about week 31:
What’s Up With Baby: According to BabyCenter, baby measures over 16 inches long and weighs 3.3 pounds (about the weight of four naval oranges) and is headed into a growth spurt.
Weight Gain: This week I gained exactly 2 pounds – I’m wondering if all my yummy shower food (aka good eats via my mom) added to this! This week’s gain makes my net difference now +15.9 pounds.
What I’ve Been Eating: Shower food included: mini-quiche, mini wrapped hot dogs, mini meatballs, mini cupcakes (sensing a theme yet?) and more! I’m trying to think of dinners that John and I had last week and my mind is just blanking on me.
How I’m Feeling: Other than not sleeping well at my mom’s house, I’ve been feeling just fine! I should have brought my body pillow with me, but quite frankly I forgot. Plus, I’m not sure we would have had room for it – my sister flew into the airport by me and we carted the three of us plus our bags to PA. Then on the way home we had all the gifts too. Luckily, I slept like a baby once I was back in my bed Sunday night.
How I’m Changing: There really hasn’t been many changes this week, however, baby moves around SO much more!
Baby Movement: Baby H. loves putting on a show for daddy before we go to sleep. His movements are becoming much bigger and stronger. It certainly it fun to feel and see!
Buying Gifts for Baby: This past weekend a baby shower in PA was thrown for us! My awesome sister Ellen, amazing best friend Caity, and super-star mom, combined their efforts and it was a fantastic shower! (Thank you, thank you, thank you!) I’ll do a full post on it later in the week, but here are two teaser photos!
Buying Gifts for Mommy: My mom and I ordered my breast pump over the weekend! We totally lucked out with a sale too!
John’s Thoughts: With all the thought that went in to last week’s post, I don’t have much to add for this week. I will say that I’m glad to have the second baby shower over: it means that we’re in the home stretch! I have a few other ideas for my “thoughts” in the coming weeks so keep your eyes out!
Baby-Related Accomplishments: Nothing too big in terms of accomplishments happened this week, but I’m trying to stay on top of organization as gifts came flowing in via mail.
What We’re Looking Forward to This Week:
Midwife appointment on Thursday.
Hospital/maternity ward tour on Sunday.
Breastfeeding class on Monday.
We might get to see my dad this weekend when he drops my step-mom off at the airport.
