31 weeks today!

Your baby continues to grow. Baby’s lungs and digestive tract are very near to being mature. Now that almost all of the major organs are functioning, growth will focus on maturing those organs and growing muscle mass and fat stores. Baby’s weight gain will exceed its growth in length from now on. He or she should more than double their weight again between now and birth. It weighs about 3.5 pounds (1.6kg), and crown to rump length is 11 inches (28cm). Its total length is 16.5 inches (42cm).
A loud noise near you may cause your little one to jump.

Baby may move to the rhythm of music. Studies with heart rates show that they may also prefer some types of music to others at this stage. The eyes can now completely open and the irises are now responsive to light, dilating and contracting as needed.

Week 31: What a week! Antibiotics, Home Renovations, Insomnia, and Sausages…

We decided to do some more “nesting” inspired things this week and put hardwood floors in the house. Then we decided to re-do the stair railings essentially building a new half wall. We got rid of the previous iron railing because I had visions of the little man sticking his head through on a daily basis and dropping toys and various items down the stairs.

The floors are absolutely amazing and make such a difference in the house and I am especially excited about the ease of cleaning. We have 3 Labradors and the hair gets to be a nightmare, the carpet was just a breeding ground for nasty things and I couldn’t picture my little guy crawling on the god forsaken carpet. So I am very happy to have this done!

On top of the massive amount of work required in home renovating I contracted a sinus infection. It kicked my butt! I finally broke down and was put on antibiotics which helped almost immediately but oddly enough after 5 days on the antibiotics I ended up with an ear infection. How are these things possible?? It was so painful I couldn’t even chew food on the left side. So needless to say it has been quite the week and I am worn out!

Another theme of this week has been insomnia. I just can’t seem to stay asleep… I’m sure the waking to pee 8, YES EIGHT, times a night is not helping. So all of this is adding to my exhaustion during the day. I am also noticing that the swelling is sure picking up. I can no longer get my rings on and off of my fingers, they are swollen and hideous! And the poor tootsies look like sausages too.

I keep telling people that some weeks are better than others, and obviously this week was one of the worst so far. But we got a lot accomplished and now we’re on to another week, just 8 to go!
