31 weeks!!!!!!

Only 8 weeks to go!!!! I was having some issues this past week when working and busy I started seeing spots and felt like I would pass out!!! So I called the dr of course they wanted me to go to labor and delivery to be checked out. By the time I got in the room and they checked my blood pressure I had been in a bed for 10 mins so I felt fine so of course they said well you look great lol. I have been on the iron pills so Molly thought that could be the problem so Dr. Sammons said I could stop taking them and see how I felt and also keep a food log of what I was eating. So far I feel great no more issues since I stoped the pills! Seems odd iron pills could make a difference but I dont know what else it could be… when I was there and hooked up to the monitoring stuff I recorded Ellie’s heartbeat for her mommy and daddy! Thank God she was just fine! Im sleeping less and less and getting very winded doing little things like carrying Everett up the stairs for bed lol. Im also getting a few Braxton hicks and TMI WARNING my boobs are leaking a little!!! Ellie’s milk is coming lol. I hope Im able to pump well for her. Im worried about that I’ve never not had the baby right there to just feed so I hope this goes well. I really want her to have the best! Here is what Ellie is up to this week!!!                                                      Your Baby

As far as growth goes, your baby’s still on a roll, measuring an impressive 18 inches and weighing in at more than three pounds. You can still expect your baby to gain at least three to five pounds, possibly more, before you two meet.

Your baby’s brain is working overtime these days, developing faster than ever. Connections between individual nerve cells are growing at a frenetic clip, and your baby can now perceive information from all five senses. Sure, your baby can’t smell anything right now, but that’s only because he or she is still submerged in amniotic fluid and needs to be breathing air to get a whiff of anything. Lucky for you — and your baby — yours will be one of the very first scents your baby breathes in, a scent that will quickly become his or her very favorite.

So what’s your little dove doing all day while you’re busy feathering your nest for his or her arrival? Making faces, hiccupping, swallowing, breathing, pedaling with little hands and feet along your uterine wall, and even sucking his or her thumb. In fact, some babies suck their thumbs so vigorously while in the womb that they’re born with a callus on their thumb (what a little sucker!).
