My Pregnancy Journal ~ Week 31

Week 31

This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy. From BabyCenter

Random Thoughts: I feel like I have so much to do and no time.. I know there is plenty of time, but it doesn't feel like it.  Last week we went to see Kooza Cirque Du Soleil.  It was an awesome show.  I plan to post about it, but just have not had a chance.  But when I came home my feet were so swollen.  Sitting in those little chairs in the position for so long and I guess that is what happens.

Symptoms/Medical:  Well, I have had swollen legs, mostly feet and ankles.  I have been putting my legs up as much as I can.  I have also been noticing on the inside of my right leg that I have varicose veins popping out more.  They don't hurt, but its weird to see a blue line popping out of my leg.  I tried to take a picture, but it would not turn out right.  Dr. says they are fine and if I get worried wear compression hose.  I have those compression socks and wear them to be some nights.  I have also continued to be very sleepy.

Weight Gain: 2 lbs up... 35lbs over all.

Cravings: Anything sweet sound good to me.

Food Aversions: Nothing this week. 

What made me cry this week: I don't think I cried this week...

Thoughts from Jayden:  Jayden continues to hug and kiss the baby.  Whenever I make a noise or something because the baby kicks he asks, "is the baby kicking you mama?"  I have received a few things in the mail lately for the baby and Jayden gets very excited to open them for me.  Last weekend Jayden and I went to the mall and did a little shopping.  We got a couple things for Jayden and a couple for the baby.  Jayden was very excited to pick out a fun and cute monkey outfit for the baby.  Jayden does seem excited, but also seems like he is looking for a little extra attention.  I am trying my best to spend all the time I can with him.

Something I am excited about:  I got a new freezer!!  Tons of room for!  Also, this weekend my mom is picking up the day bed in the babies room so I will have the room to arrange his room and get things a little situated.
