How far along: 31 Weeks.
How big is baby: According to the ultrasound, she is about 4lbs.
Total weight gain: 28+ lbs. total.
Maternity Clothes: Yes. And still wearing my regular clothes and tops too.
Sleep: Still hit or miss but has been better this week. Although, it was very hard sleeping away from home in a bed upstairs at my Grandma’s house.
Best moment of the week: My mom came to visit for a few days, I saw my Aunt Cindy and her freaking adorable boys, we made our way to Michigan for a very successful and absolutely beautiful baby shower for Bobby and I (thanks to Mom, Rachel and Aunt Linda for all their hard work and creativity in making it perfect in every way) and seeing all the friends and family we haven’t seen in a while shower us with so much love. And my BFFL Julia sending me beautiful flowers all the way from New Jersey really brightened up my day considering she couldn’t be there with us. Little Josie Bear is so so so loved and doesn’t even know it yet. We cannot thank everyone enough for all the love and excitement; it was such a perfect day (but more on that later).
Food Cravings: Mexican! Anything really-since I didn’t eat much in Michigan because of the whole GF thing.
Food Aversions: Nothing.
Symptoms: Itchy skin again (I think because of the Michigan cold), acne, cramps in my legs. I actually had a very big charley horse the other morning. Bobby had to help by pushing my toes to my shin. Thank goodness he was there.
Mood: Blessed, thankful, excited, anxious and happy to be home (but always hate saying goodbye).
Movement: She hiccups at least once a day and she is super active in not so much the punches and kicks but long pushes where you can see my belly move and stay in that position for a few seconds. Pretty cool. Bobby loves it. He puts his head on my belly and she pushed back.
What I’m looking forward to: Josie’s arrival and completely getting my hospital bag together (to eliminate some anxiety).
What I miss: The warm weather. It was nice here for a day but it has been raining and cold since.
