31 Week Bumpdate (Coconut)
how far along: 31 Weeks
size of baby: Coconut 16.18 in., 3.31 lb
total weight gain: 19 lbs
favorite clothes: Leggings, Sandals, and anything that isn’t super constricting on my top half lol because it is getting harder to breathe
symptoms: Heartburn constantly, braxton hicks seem to be getting more intense, had slight swelling in my feet a couple of times this week when I was out in the heat, but it went away once I sat down.
sleep: As good as can be expected. Hip pain most nights since I am NOT a side sleeper and more bathroom trips, which probably would not be so frequent if I didn’t start drinking like I lived in the desert every evening lol.
must-haves: Water, heart burn medicine, leggings, and my hubby’s nice, loose and cozy boxers.
cravings: Sugar, french fries, nachos.
baby movement: He is so wild and full of energy, his complete body shifting is painful though since it is getting tight in there.
gender: Boy, Alexander James!
husband: For the first time ever, he has never had this concern with any other pregnancy, but he is worried his heart won’t have enough room for another baby to love. He works so often that his time with the kids is pretty limited. We try to incorporate individual time with them while he is home as much as possible. He is stressing out though trying to figure out how he will show enough attention to another one. I have this fear every pregnancy so I know it is possible, he will know too.
best moment this week: Knowing that since both older kids are out of school. Now I do not have to leave the house three times a day for carpool anymore lol! I can stay home all day if I want to. Which is amazing since it is starting to get so hot, sticky and nasty outside down here in the South!
From newborn through the first year. Schedules with each transitional phase in mind.
