How I’m feeling: Great! Working out regularly (light weights lots of reps). I’ve been slacking on the cardio. I get winded walking up my front steps. Do 5 stairs count as cardio? Sciatic flares up every now and then. I’m getting very excited and nervous that I only have 9 weeks until the due date! I can’t wait to meet this baby. The fact that we didn’t find out the gender is starting to make me a little nuts. I’m also starting to worry if I’ll ever get my flat stomach back.
New and exciting: The baby shower is Sunday!!! I’m so excited for brunch 🙂 I think I finally made a decision on which dress to wear (check out the instagram pics @FindingSilverLinings to help me decide). I made white cake stands for each table’s centerpiece (that tutorial will be making an appearance here soon) along with Oreo cake pops (also will be on the blog soon).
Scary Stuff: I have been waking up with bad stomach pains for a couple of days. Then I began to feel cramps real low in my abdomen so I called my dr. He wanted to see me in the office and did a fetal fibronectin test to be sure I wasn’t going into labor. After 23 hours of waiting for the results (freaked out much?!), it came back negative. He then told me I was just dehydrated. Phew!
Rings Fitting Fingers: Yes if I’m in air conditioning. No if it’s super hot.
Belly Button Status: Almost completely smoothed out!
Cravings: candy apples, chocolate soft serve icecream with chocolate sprinkles (specifically lol!)
Aversions: asparagus (still), pizza
Baby is the size of: a pineapple!
The baby at 31 weeks:
- He or she’s going through major brain and nerve development.
- Eye development, too. The irises now react to light!
- All five of his senses are in working order.
