31 Week Bumpdate

  • How far along are you? 31 Weeks and 1 Day 
  • How I'm feeling: Starting to get uncomfortable more.  My back is definitely feeling the pressure more so.
  • Total weight gain:  We have an appointment next week so we will see for sure but I'm sure I'm hitting close to 20 pounds now.
  • How big is baby? Baby is the size of a pineapple this week! :)  His daddy's favorite fruit!
  • This week baby: is between 15.2 and 16.7 inches.  He is also weighing somewhere between 2.5 to 3.8 pounds.  He is going through major brain and nerve development.  His eyes are continuing to develop also.  Let's hope he gets his daddy's eye genes because mama was blind as a bat until surgery 2 years ago. LOL.  He also has all 5 senses working now which means that he can clearly hear us. 
  • Maternity clothes: Yes.  I need to still go buy shorts and/or capris..
  • Sleep:  Sleeping is definitely becoming more difficult.  I am up at least once a night having to pee and for the first time last night I was up due to being in pain.  My back is hurting and there is nothing I can do in my comfy bed to make that better.
  • Best moment this week: I can clearly tell where he is inside my belly.  I find it so amazing and exciting.  I am lopsided most of the time and he likes to hang out on my right side.
  • Movement: The kicks have definitely lessened but he is still moving in there.  He isn't tumbling as much anymore either.  I'm pretty sure he is running out of room so when I do feel him he is probably asking me to make some more for him.  LOL
  • Food cravings: Not this week.
  • Food aversions: Nope.  
  • Belly button in or out:  Belly button is still in!!!!!!!!!!!!  
  • What I am thankful for: I am thankful that I have had a great pregnancy this far.  I'm happy that my body seems to agree with pregnancy and I can't wait to see how the next 9 weeks go.
  • What I'm looking forward to: I'm looking forward to meeting him, of course.  I only have 5 more weeks left at work.  I can't wait to get the house ready for him.  I really can't wait for us to be a family of 3 plus the pup pups.

    1. oh my gosh, so jealous you get to be off work early for having a baby! i will be here until the day i pop this baby out. also, i am totally lopsided all the time too, always on the right side! and, if you don't do this already, propping your belly and supporting your back while sleeping has been a lifesaver for me, basically make yourself a little pillow cocoon so your muscles don't have to work to keep you in position.

    2. awwww so sweet. I know you can't wait. And I'm shocked you're having a boy b/c everyone else that I know that are having babies are having kids. I know of at least 5 that had girls or either will soon. i have two cousins who have kids. One will have hers in Oct. One just had hers 2 weeks ago.
