My Pregnancy Week 31

Pregnancy Week 31

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. Measuring approximately 16 inches long, he weighs about 4 lbs. Four whole pounds – wow! And from this week, until two weeks before birth, he will gain about a half-pound every week.

As you’ve probably noticed, she is moving around quite a bit in there! It’s not uncommon for her continuous movements, which may feel like somersaults, to keep you up at night. Her arms, legs, and body are also filling out as she continues to develop fat underneath her skin, making those kicks and prods feel even stronger than last week. You may even see an arm or a foot move slowly across your belly!

    We had an dr. appointment on tues. they had us come back yesterday to a bigger office. They did another NST and baby seems to be doing good but on the ultrasound she is measuring small only 2 lbs. 15 oz.at 31 weeks 3 days. They can’t figure out why she is so small. They sent me to the hospital to get a steroid shot and I go tomorrow for another one then 2 x a week for NST. I started out this preg. very sick I had Hyperemesis and was on feeding tube, picc line and a Zofran pump. They are hoping it is just because I am small and we had a rough start, but doc. wants to take baby early, trying not to stress. Has anyone else went through this.

    YAY! this far with no complications! hopefully we can keep it that way. judging by my last 2 pregnancies, anywhere from 3-8 weeks left. I’m shooting for 8. I am anxious to meet her but definitely don’t want her out too early.

  7. About 9 more weeks and out little one will be here :) I am so exhausted!!!!

    Just over 8 weeks to go! I’m on bedrest, but I’m a single mommy, and have a 15 month old girl that weighs over 27 lbs, so staying in bed is impossible! Trying to take it as easy as I can, so this baby will be healthy and full term. Fortunately, I have a wonderful mother who helps out when she can, and some really good friends that live close and have also been very helpful.

    My Lil man has been more active than ever this past week or two. It feels as though he’s in a kickboxing match. Lol! I must say the only thing that has bothered me is the hemorrhoids that must have busted because everytime I have a bm, blood is on the toilet paper and in the toilet and this worries me. I have an appointment with ob/gyn today and we’ll see what’s going on then. Sex is great although I get out of breath very easily. Other than that, all is wonderful and couldn’t be better.

    I’ve heard a lot about Braxton Hicks, but haven’t felt it myself. Is it normal?

  21. Avatar of psweeper psweeper says:

    31 weeks, and I’m getting all the fun symptoms. Swollen feet and ankles, heartburn and reflux, sleeplessness, butt pain, joints popping…what else? Oh! Gas and mild cramps. When does the diarrhea stop??? This is baby #1 and she’s a little soccer player. Apparently my bladder is the ball. And ladies I’m calling b#11$!*@ on the pregnancy glow! What I am is hot, sweaty and out of breath. My nose has spread across my face and all the blotters in the world won’t get rid of the oil. Don’t forget the weird dreams. Like my baby came out looking like a Kewpie doll with red curly hair! Wouldn’t be so bad if I wasn’t a black woman! Lol! All of this and I can’t wait for my little girl to get here! My hubby and I are super excited! Thank God for his ability to make me laugh when I start having a pity party.

    less than nine weeks to go and i cant wait. my baby girl movs so much sometimes i think he is trying to get out through my belly button. i am very happy when she sleeps cause then i can sleep. but i am thinking i will have to be indused like i was with my second son. she is getting so big and im running out of room. so if i do i only will have seven weeks to go. and it is getting so hard to stand and walk for long periods of time.
