31 Weeks Update

At 31 weeks gestation...

... one of my biggest concerns right now is trying to get comfortable.  No matter what position I am in, I somehow am not comfortable.  It doesn't matter if I am sitting, standing, or laying down.  Eventually, something starts to hurt.  Usually it's my back.  If it's not my back {and sometimes if it is}, I have to deal with the swelling also.  This pregnancy has been much more difficult than Micah's in so many ways.  It's also been better in other ways.  The pain and uncomfortableness {is that a word? It is now.} are much worse than I remember with Micah.  However, Corrin appears to enjoy being inside, and is making no effort to escape early.  I appreciate that.  In case you don't remember, Micah tried to jail break as early as 31 weeks.  Hopefully Baby Girl is more cooperative, and waits until the doctor comes in to get her.

... this week was stressful for me.  There was not one thing in particular that I can pinpoint.  I think it is a combination of lack of sleep, the long commute to and from work on top of the work hours, maintaining the house, and keeping up with Micah.  Friday afternoon, I just wanted to get home, get in bed, and not come out until I felt better.

... I thought I had found the solution to my insomnia.  I noticed that on the nights that I stayed up later than I normally do, I would sleep through the night, mostly.  There were still trips to the restroom, but I was actually able to fall asleep quickly and easily anytime I got up.  I thought maybe I had found a way to be able to get some sleep.  I was wrong.  The next night I tried staying up later, and it backfired on me.  Not only was I unable to fall asleep, but I woke up every hour or two the entire night.  I was miserable the next day.  I don't know what I'm going to do, other than wait for Corrin to be born and decide she's ready to sleep through the night.

... I almost set a date for the cesarean at my last doctor's appointment.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to because the September schedule has not been established yet.  I should definitely be able to schedule at the next appointment on Tuesday.  Other than that, Corrin passed with 8/8 again.  I told you she likes being in there.

... weighed in at 128.4 pounds, and measured 35.5 inches around.
