31 Weeks

Random thoughts this week, in no particular order (hence random)...
  • No news yet on the results of the 2nd OGTT. It's annoying, but whatever.

  • Had another conversation with the coworker who annoyed me greatly a while back by insisting that I "needed" to have a boy this time. When she steered the conversation to the baby's sex, I (a) sort of lied—I said we'd find out when he or she arrives, and (b) told her—politely, I think—that I'd rather not talk about it. When she pushed on with the topic, I said something to the effect of, "I just don't like being told what I'm supposed to want." I feel vaguely guilty but at least not extremely annoyed.

  • I can still wear some of my non-maternity clothes. I'm not sure if this is a good or a bad thing, and am trying not to think about what it might say about my regular fashion sense.

  • I'm not sleeping particularly well at night, even when the girls do. This is especially annoying when they sleep well.

  • I'm enjoying the relatively cooler temps of late. Yesterday was mid-70s and just about perfect as far as weather goes, IMHO.

  • I have yet to knit a stitch for this baby, in part because I'm seriously far behind on my knitting for other babies born in the last year or so.

  • I felt my first recognizable Braxton Hicks contraction while walking out to the car on Tuesday. Right on time (i.e., it's completely normal to feel them now).

  • For those of you who are, like me, amused by the food comparisons: at 31 weeks baby weighs as much as four navel oranges (i.e., about 3 pounds) and is usually over 16 inches, head to heel.

  • Little One is fairly active. In the day, I find this amusing and reassuring. I'm rather fascinated by watching my abdomen twitch and move. At night? Not so much...
I can't think of anything else to write about regarding the pregnancy, so I guess I'm done.
