31 Weeks! Would you like to play with my basketball?
Would you like to play with my basketball?
And just think, two people in the past couple of weeks have guessed I was around 4 months pregnant...really? REALLY?!
Look at the dents at the top of my belly - I'm really poking out now!
31 weeks already! Only 9 weeks to go - but I sure am feeling it. I'm totally squished, completely exhausted and my back aches. BUT, Isaiah is moving around more than ever and I can't help but laugh, smile, and cry! I love him so much. I'm constantly thinking about him and dreaming of the day we get to finally meet him face to face. He already feels like a huge part of our family and I don't even know what color his hair is! Becoming a parent is truly an incredible process. :)
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.
