31 Weeks

31 weeks 1 day - 62 days to go!

Weight gain: +19lbs

Stretch marks: I don't think so, but hard to say. Lots of blue veins streaking everywhere.

Sleep: Going okay. Still lots of night sweats which wake me up several times a night. And every time I turn over my belly hurts and contracts. However, I go to bed super early which means I get enough sleep overall.

Best moment this week: Finding out that Callan is measuring nearly 5lbs already (4lbs 12oz). He's in the 96% for weight and 98% for head size. I couldn't care less if this makes labor or recovery more difficult... weight means so much when there's a possibility of baby being born early.

Movement: Still lots of it, but I can tell he's getting crowded. Movements are slower and more intense.

Food cravings: Ice cream and gummy bears

Labor Signs: Contractions continue to be every 5-10 minutes when off the Indocin. When on the Indocin they space out to every 20 minutes or so. Increased discharge and some mucous here and there. Lightening crotch.

Belly Button in or out? In but completely flat

Wedding rings on or off? On

What I miss: Doing simple things like picking up my children and tidying up around the house. Being able to get up from the bed/couch without rolling around like a turtle.

What I am looking forward to: Summertime

Weekly Wisdom: Pregnancies can be soooooooooooooooooo different from one another

Milestones: Today - Assuming I make it past 11pm tonight, I will have gone longer without my water breaking than I did last time. :)
