31 weeks

This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. They weigh about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. They can turn their head from side to side, and their arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath their skin.

They're 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.
*How far along?: 31 weeks
*Total weight gain: Don't know

*How big is baby?: 4 navel oranges

*Maternity clothes?: Yes; some tops are getting too short :(
*Sleep?: Not well that is for sure. My new wedge pillow helps, but not enough!

*Best moment this week?: Seeing the bebe squirming and smiling in 3D/4D!

*Movement?: Yup. Although the bebe refused to move when we wanted them to during the scan and their hands/feet were over their face. Cheeky little thing...

*Food cravings?: No, but I'm loving NBH's version of Philly Cheesesteaks he has been making me for dinner lately.

*Labor signs?: No

*Belly button in or out?: Innie

*What I miss: Drinking a Chai Latte or Cafe Mocha without my stomach hating me.

*What I'm looking forward to: Finishing packing and moving out of the flat.

*Milestone: Single figures for weeks left (9 and counting...)
