Another week closer to meeting this
little big guy. I say big because I have a feeling he's going to be a chunky one. The weather has changed here from the unbearable near 100 degree days to hovering right around 75 degrees. I now know what it would be like to live in San Diego and I can't say that I wouldn't love it. This is beautiful weather!
|Please excuse my dirty mirror.|
Due Date? September 27th is the official date, however we have a scheduled c/s for September 20th.
How far along? 31 weeks
How big is baby? The baby is the size of 4 navel oranges about 16.25" and about 3.3lbs.
Weight gain? +24
What's going on with baby? Baby is gaining more weight as baby fat is filling in underneath the skin. His color is becoming less red and more pink in color. By now, his irises can dilate and respond to changes in light.
Stretchmarks? Nothing new.
Sleep? Really really deep sleep. I'm very happy that I'm getting such good sleep at this point. If only it stays this way.
Best moment this week? My parents have been fostering a stray and her puppies so Sunday Addie got to play with the puppies and it was hysterical. They chased her around and nipped at her toes while Addie ran around the yard saying, "stop doing that" and "ouch".
Movement? I thought the movement was slowing down but this week he's been very active and it's kind of creeping me out. Only because it's really quite uncomfortable.
Food cravings? Oreos. Lots of them. Covered in milk.
Labor signs? none.
Belly button in or out? In and slowly thinning.
What I miss? Still missing out on cute summer clothes. I'm hoping that once I deliver I'll be able to bounce back relatively quickly so I can enjoy dressing for my favorite season, fall!
What I am looking forward to?
Milestones? Nothing that I can think of.
Next doctor's appointment? This morning where we have an ultrasound to check the size of the baby. The past couple times I've been measured the doctor has been a little bit alarmed by the size of my stomach. I have a feeling I'm carrying a lot of water like I did with Addie but I also think this guy is a chunky monkey.
