31 Weeks!

How far along?  31 weeks
Baby Size: Baby Flinn weighs 3 lbs 10 oz (as of Thursday)
Total weight gain/loss:  26 lbs  
Maternity clothes:  Definitely
Stretch marks:  None yet       
Sleep:  Sleep is definitely improving.  I guess I'm getting used to getting up for the bathroom every day night at 4am and I'm able to fall back to sleep pretty easily.        
Best moment this week:    Going to our ultrasound and finding out that valementous cord insertion is actually marginal and that Baby Flinn is growing great and that there is no longer a cause for concern.     
Miss Anything?  Not really anything.     
Movement:  He is moving constantly!  At our childbirth class she suggested drinking a sugary drink and then counting kicks.  One night we did this and Chris was able to feel him kick A LOT!  Chris asked how I could fall asleep with him doing that... I told him I can't lol!  The ultrasound technician said he was moving a lot too!    Thursday night Chris was feeling him kick, then he loudly said "Hello Baby Flinn" and on cue there was a very strong kick back!
Food Cravings:  I definitely prefer sweet things, candy, ice cream, and fruit.  I've been trying to pick fruit whenever I am in the mood for something sweet!      
Anything making you queasy or sick?  This week I was okay. 
Gender:  BOY!!!
Labor Signs?  Thankfully, no!
Symptoms:  The sciatica and swollen hands are still there.  Thankfully the valementous cord insertion is now marginal and not an issue anymore.  The heartburn seems to come and go.       
Belly Button in or out?  Protruding more each day. 
Wedding rings on or off? Nothing's changed... they are still off.    
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Very happy!  
Looking forward to:  The crisp fall weather.  And getting to see the results from our Maternity Photo Session.

Boy how I've grown.  Same dress at 20 weeks and again at 31 weeks!
