31 weeks

How far along: 31w2d. I am a few days behind because of the holiday and then a very busy Tuesday at work.
How big is Baby: Baby weighs approximately 3 1/2 lbs. This is growth spurt time - he is beginning to plump out now.
Maternity Clothes: Yes! My shirts are getting too short so I bought a few more maternity tops that are super long, in anticipation of more belly growth. I need to get a new bra soon since my newest one is getting snug again. I've heard how wonderful nursing bras are, so I may get one now.
Sleep: Sleep was okay this past week. I had a few great nights of sleep and a few horrible ones. 
Movement: All the time. Lots of hiccups lately. I can feel body parts now too! I think it's his bum, and when I push on it, he moves. It's so fun to think about him in there :) I can tell he is getting big and really stretching my poor skin. His movements are sometimes painful, especially down low in my pelvis {probably his head?}. He is still head down, as my OB checked at my appointment on Friday. Good job Grayson!
Food cravings: Still sweets. And I'm always hungry. I have been eating constantly throughout the day. It's much easier to eat little bits at a time since he is taking up all the room in there.
Food aversions: None.
Gender: It's a BOY!
Symptoms: Swollen ankles. Backaches. Always hungry. Exhaustion. Peeing every five two minutes. Heartburn/indigestion.
Nursery Progress: We made a lot of progress this weekend!! I am working on a separate post. I did receive some blocks I ordered off Etsy. I love them :)

Best moment this week: The three day weekend was a wonderful break.
What I am looking forward to: Our baby shower is this Saturday! I am SO excited :)


  1. You are looking amazing, Mama! I can't even believe how close you are to the end now. Hope your baby shower rocks!

  2. I love love love the name blocks!!! Adorable- so excited to hear how your shower goes- enjoy every moment! :)

  3. So excited for you that your shower is around the corner. How exciting to finally start filling the nursery with baby clothes and accessories! Have fun!
