How far along?: 31 weeks
Total weight gain: Somewhere between 17-22 pounds
How big is baby?: According to Baby Center, 3.3 pounds or 4 navel oranges.
Maternity clothes?: I have gotten another pair of jean capris. And 2 long t-shirts, one is gray and one is white with a neon/flag printed hand making a peace sign (try visualising that one!) that says Peace Now. I had to buy a few extra long shirts to fit over this belly :(
Stretch marks?: Just the few on my chest still (knock on wood)
Sleep?: Not too bad! I am getting pretty good sleep.
Best moment this week?: Lotsa movement. My grandmother felt her move!
Movement?: See above. She's still not the most active but I feel her soooo much more often.
Food cravings?: Hot wings, specifically the spicy garlic wings from bww which I haven't gotten yet. Oh, and dip.
Labor signs?: None!
Belly button in or out?: Still in.
What I miss: A LOT of clothes are not fitting me now. I can't wear but a couple pre-pregnancy things right now.
- What I'm looking forward to: Sleep tonight! In regards to the pregnancy...I guess just continuing to have her grow bigger and stronger and healthier!
- Milestone: 1) The baby flipped into head down position
- 2) I had my first child birth class

- Baby is already in a head down position.

- We had all just met each other. I think that it was a little uncomfortable to watch in the company of strangers.
- The instructor lady left after starting the video. Hello. What if we had questions?
- All of the ladies in the video were like 40.
- They were all also completely naked. I doubt I will be giving birth without clothes on...is that necessary?
- The video were like 20 years old. Or older. It literally could have been my birth we witnessed if my mom had been 20 years older and lacking shame when she gave birth for me. I think it made it more boring somehow.

How far along?: 28 weeks
Total weight gain: 16 Pounds
How big is baby?: According to Baby Center, 2.25 pounds or about the size of a Chinese cabbage.
Maternity clothes?: I still don't own maternity shirts! I just wear large t-shirts mostly...I have a couple longer t-shirts that fit and I have bought one extra large fitted shirt that works... I wear sweats, my comfy old navy pants and I have a pair of black maternity capris and jean maternity capris that I wear. My bra size has gone up from a 36 a/34 b to a 38 c!
Stretch marks?: I have a few dark ones on one side of my chest...
Sleep?: Some nights? I feel like I could always use more, but I feel I sleep a lot too. Some nights I am up and down, others less so...It seems random.
Best moment this week?: Ahh...If I had posted Saturday I would have known!
Movement?: Good days and bad like usual :(
Food cravings?: Apple toaster strudels. I at the whole box in one week! Also, beef ramen. I ate a lot of it last week.
Labor signs?: None yet, thank God.
Belly button in or out?: It is still in! I am not sure I think it will pop.
What I miss: Happy hour! Lunch meat. Sleeping however I want...
What I'm looking forward to: My appointment tomorrow, and possibly seeing the baby again...
So that was Saturday...
Sunday I visited the grandparents... and then I went and got two kittens. They are super cute and still nameless! I will post with pictures soon!
Monday was crazy. I had a huge anxiety/panic attack. Thank goodness I have calmed down. I won't even go into it, it was so embarassing.
Tuesday... Meh. Nothing to report, except that is when I originally started this post, and I had a lot more to say! I have learned my lesson and will be posting wayyy more often from now on.
Wednesday/Today was an okay day.
I had a WIC appointment this morning. It is kind of embarassing, but sooo many women qualify for WIC and I am glad to have a little bit to contribute to the house since I am unable to work. It is not much but at some point every little bit helps.
I decided to treat myself to a McDonalds breakfast which was such a bad idea! Basically it just made me so tired and then I had really bad heartburn for forever. Yuck.
Next was my doctors appointment. I still weigh 152. Everything seems pretty great except for my anxiety which I got PRESCRIBED A MASSAGE FOR! How amazing is that??? Hopefully insurance covers it. I am pretty psyched! I might make the appointment for early next week to give myself something to look forward to but then I won't have to wait long.
I met up with my friend A for a coffee and then came home for a bit...headed to the grocery store and went out to dinner with the family...
My interesting life.
I promise to post more often cuz it is kind of wack like this! I apologize! And pictures of the kittens will be included soon too!
