Baby Brown: Week 31

A day late, but still managed to get this done this week!

How far along: 31w4d and feeling every bit of it.  

Due date: March 27, 2016

Baby Size: at my 31 week check up yesterday, the doctor said baby is measuring right on track based on my belly size.  The app says romaine lettuce and could be 17 inches long and 3.5 pounds!

Weight gain: I am not one to complain about the weight gain because I know it's all for a much bigger reason.  My small 5'2 body is housing another human in there! That is potentially 17 inches long! My weight gain is continuing to increase, but I know and have confidence that the pounds will come off if I work hard for it after! 

Maternity Clothes: yep and trying to mix and match different outfits from the clothes that actually do fit me is getting more challenging.  I need some longer tunics so I can wear leggings!

Stretch Marks: nope!

Sleep: sleep isn't that bad lately.  I've been able to fall asleep and stay asleep easier, but still waking up 3x to use the bathroom.  

Gender: BOY!!! 

Name:  Harrison Cole Brown !
Movement: feeling him move is the best thing ever.  His movements are getting more abrupt and drastic.  Doctor said seems like head is down and was on the left side during the appointment, but I still feel him more on the right side. 

Best moment this week: hearing the heartbeat going strong at 150! 

Looking forward to: slowing down.  I've been extremely busy with cheerleading the past couple weeks and will continue to be until February 13th.  Hoping my body can continue to keep up until then! Oh and also our maternity photos this weekend!! 

Husband is: on his own countdown until he leaves for Spring Training.  T-6 weeks until he leaves :(

Food cravings: nothing new in this category

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope.

Labor Signs: nothing yet, but the countdown is ON!

Missing Most: being able to breathe easily. 

Symptoms: extreme shortness of breath, dizziness, and a big ole belly!

Nursery: on the lookout for curtains.  Other than that, the room is coming along nicely! We got the bookshelves in the other day and just need to hang them on the wall with the mirror!

Belly Button in or out? flouty (flat/outie)

Wedding rings on or off? on and still going strong! 

Mood: feeling good, but sometimes the thought that after Harrison gets here it will never just be the two of us again.  Trying to embrace the last few weeks with the boo home. 

Workouts: nope. 


  1. Girl! You're so close!!! And I am with you on the weight gain, our bodies are doing EXACTLY what they need to be doing to house our little babes! You are one strong Mama and SO soon you'll have your little man in your arms :)! xx
