31 Week Update!

How far along? 31 weeks

How big is baby?  3.3 pounds/16 inches!  About the weight of 4 naval oranges.

Weight gain? 28lbs - I think I was really up more last week but the scale fluctuated 2lbs every day last week!

Symptoms? Definitely some sore hips this week as well as a sore back.  He is definitely finding his way up to my ribs on my left side when I lay down, wowzers, it hurts!  My fingers are swelling a little, can't tell if it's because of pregnancy or the weather.  I'm hoping the weather!

Sleep?  Much better this week than last.  Still under my ribs, so I'm pretty limited to my right side and that's about it.  1 or no trips to the bathroom this week each night, better than last.

Food cravings? Still lots of ice.

Movement? All over.  He didn't stop the other night.  It was cool, but kind of annoying, I was trying to sleep!

Gender?  It's a boy! 

Clothes?  Maternity Pants and maternity tops and some regular cardigans. 

What I am looking forward to? Mom and grandma are coming this week, so excited!  Baby shower #2 is next weekend.

What am I missing? Definitely sleeping on my stomach.  At the party this weekend, I was missing the chance to have a sip of some margaritas!  Everyone said they were yummy!

Milestones? He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.

Other? The glider is put together.  We got curtains today to put up too.  Baby pool!  Our house is finally 100% inhabitable.  All of the rooms have been cleaned up and everything put away.  Feels great to have that out of the way!


  1. Wow 31 weeks already? Time sure is flying!! For some reason I thought you were way further behind me but really 7 weeks isn't that long!!

  2. You look wonderful! I know what you mean about the margaritas- I could definitely go for one or a glass of wine! :)

  3. time is going so quick!! you look great girly!
    i've heard of ladies craving ice while pregnant! seems crazy to me, i can't get enough food! haha!!
    and i miss sleeping on my tummy too ;)

  4. You look great! Time just flies by from here on out, at least it seemed to for me. I always missed sleeping on my stomach too - I ended up sleeping in a weird half-on-my-stomach-half-not position, and it was the most comfortable for me!


Comments make me smile!

Have a wonderful day!
