31 Weeks and Pics!

It happened: the Belly button is completely flattened

but I still "heart" it.

I am 31 weeks pregnant!
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!

You may have noticed some leaking of colostrum, or "premilk," from your breasts lately. Some expectant moms experience this leaking, others don't.
Have you noticed the muscles in your uterus tightening now and then? Many women feel these random contractions — called Braxton Hicks contractions — in the second half of pregnancy. Often lasting about 30 seconds, they're irregular, and at this point, they should be infrequent and painless
I think I have felt a few braxton hicks contractions, I cant be sure since I've never felt it before but I am going to mention it to my doctor tomorrow. Other than that things are going well, I think I have the definite 3rd trimester sleepies! But who wouldn't with lugging around 20 extra pounds, something constantly kicking at you, and sleep being interrupted by an endless bladder!
I am still working full time and our FULL weekends will come to an end in about a month. Not that I mind them but it will be nice to have some time to finish up William's room and do somethings around the house we have been meaning to get to before he gets here!
