Week 31 : She’s 4 navel oranges!

1 November , 2009


This week Babycentre says that my squishy should be more or less 16 inches (40.64cm) long and weight about the same as four navel oranges – which they rate at about 3.3 pounds (1496g). However, since we had a check up again on Friday I can tell you she weighs a little bit more than that – she’s at 1.8kg now. The doctor says she’s running about a week ahead of schedule, which is fine.

At the moment she’s just working on getting bigger and plumping up a bit, and kicking me at every chance she gets. 🙂 It doesn’t hurt (unless she hits a rib) so I don’t mind – it’s actually very nice feeling her move around the whole time. Some nights she gets so enthusiastic in her jumping around that I wake up from it.

Doc says that the way she’s lying now is with her head down and facing my back and her bottom tucked neatly under my ribs. So when I see my whole potbelly move and jump it’s actually her kicking on the opposite end and bouncing against the my tummy side. I get quite a kick out of feeling her move and can be found with a hand on my belly smiling for most of the day. 😀

I still can’t believe we’re at 31 weeks already – only a few more weeks till I meet my daughter face to face for the first time.

Anyhoo, nuff mushy rambling from me for now – here are some scan piccies from Friday.

  1. You have no idea how jealous I am of you right now. You’re a whole 10 weeks ahead of me!
    Congratulations – all the best for the remainder of your pregnancy & beyond!

  2. MeeA, aaw thank you! All the best for you and the rest of your pregnancy too. I must say i’m getting a teeny tiny bit nervous about the b’day part of this adventure (mostly cause it’s my first and I don’t know what to expect exactly), but seeing all the baby room goodies come together and feeling her move every day the excitement is also building by leaps and bounds. 😀

  3. oooooooooh…it’s going so fast now. you must be getting SUPER excited. yay for you and squishy both.

  4. Rebecca, I am! I can’t believe we’re at this stage already. (I have been told that I am now even waddling!)

  5. Awww 🙂 Babyice doesn’t move around much and lets me well alone when I’m sleeping – wise boy he is 🙂

    Your time is getting so short now!!! I’m so excited for you!

  6. acidicice, squishy gets more and more active every day – don’t think he’s always going to let you sleep my friend! 😉

Say something...come on! You know you want to?
