31 Weeks Pregnant bump update!
Sharing an update at 31 weeks pregnant with my second baby!
How far along: 31 weeks 4 days pregnant
Total weight gain: 24 lbs
Baby Size: Coconut – and we may be headed for a growth spurt
Baby Facts: She is almost finished developing reproductive organs and is growing so much that she can’t stretch out or move around anymore.
Movement: She is slow, powerful, and especially active when I am sitting.
Sleep: Since we have been on vacation I am off to bed early and up with the sun.
Cravings/Aversions: Cold stuff.
Symptoms: Vulvar Varicose Veins – ugly and so painful.
Nothing Fits In My Tummy – It’s begun – the part of your pregnancy where you just want to chow down on an ice cream sundae and your squished stomach says otherwise. I’m becoming uncomfortably full after eating small meals, and staying full for hours.
Pregnancy Brain – It only gets worse the more pregnant I become. I found a jar of nuts in the fridge yesterday…
Randoms: I had another dream about Baby A where we had a 3D ultrasound. She looked very similar to her big sister – big chubby cheeks and all – but the OB told us that she was measuring small. In real life, I AM measuring 1 cm behind, but as many people shared with me this is totally normal.
Favorites: The belly kisses from Annabelle are becoming a daily routine. She loves to pull up my shirt, say, “Hello Baby Sister” and rub my belly. We talk nonstop about everything Annabelle wants to do with Baby A, which eases my anxiety about how she could end up jealous or sad with a new person to share her attention with.
Nearing the end of my third trimester at 31 weeks pregnant!
Wondering? Here is my 31 week bump update with Annabelle.
