    31 weeks

    How far along: 31w. I have about a month and a half left at work, and that gets me pretty darn excited… and then I think about having an infant, and I freak out.
    Weight: 146.6lb
    Sleep: Still good. I need to train myself when I gotta go pee, to just do it and not hold it until I can’t stand it anymore. As it turns out, breaking point is between 5:20 and 5:40 am, and I have a hard time going back to sleep after that.
    Gender: Still frank and beans.
    Movement: Lots. S2 is strong and persistent too. S is amazed at just watching him do flips. Last night I’m pretty sure he was imagining himself at a space station and was just doing flips, to a point where I coulda sworn he was sideways. He’s been head down for awhile, so that would be quite surprising, but still.
    Feeling: Overall, good. I’m getting tired again, but my appetite is very subdued. Joints still hurt, but I’m coping.
    What I miss: Full night’s sleep without having to get up. I guess I’ll be missing that one for a looong time though, huh?
    Food cravings: Sweet stuff
    Fetal development:
    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.
