Meet the Sullivans: 31 Weeks Down, 9 to Go!

31 Weeks Down, 9 to Go!

Wow! Its hard to believe that we're in the home stretch and we'll soon be meeting our little one! I haven't done a pregnancy update post in a while, so I think its definitely time to share what's been happening.

Here's a look a what the baby might be looking like this week:

I love to look at these photos of what the baby looks like in there. It seems like the baby is growing faster and faster every week! 

How Far Along: 31 Weeks--only 9 weeks left! 

Size of baby: 16 inches long and about 3.3 pounds.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: According to my doctor I'm right on track and so is baby.

Maternity Clothes: Leggings have become my best friend, I wear them all. the. time.

Gender: We have a boy name and a girl name ready for our little one. Here's a little hint, Baby Sullivan will soon have the initials OES or EES, but that is all I'm sharing! 

Movement: This is a very busy baby! As I type this I can feel the tiny rhythmic movements of a baby with the hiccups. Sometime the baby moves so much and so strongly that it becomes a bit uncomfortable.

Sleep: I'm sleeping really well. I wake up a few times a night to use the bathroom, but I always fall right back to sleep (what blessing!).

What I miss: I have to admit I am looking forward to having a glass of wine again, and oysters and blue cheese and sushi.

Cravings: Fruit and milkshakes (a new development). 

Symptoms: Heartburn is back, but otherwise I feel pretty good.

Best Moment This Week: Checking one more week off until we meet our baby!
 
This week we started watching this labor and delivery video recommended to us by my doctor. Its been informing and pretty funny at the same time. Its called Laugh and Learn About Childbirth and the humor reminds me of a Saturday Night Live skit where they're mocking labor and delivery classes. I could definitely see Kristen Wiig playing Sheri Bayles! Next week we're going to our infant care class!
