Week 31 Pregnancy Update

How far along?
32 weeks today.
Total weight gain?
I was brave and got back on the scales this week…. I’ve put on 1st 12lb – urgh! I feel like I am starting to put a little bit of weight on my face now, which I can’t say I’m overly happy about! Ha.

Maternity clothes?
I’ve not got anything new – with only 8 weeks left I am just going to make do with what I have that fits… which isn’t much at the moment!

Stretch marks?
Still none.

I’ve actually been sleeping a lot better this week. Tom often wakes up feeling baby J kicking as he hugs my belly, but I seem to sleep through it quite easily :)

Best moment this week?
I’ve had a great few days off over the Easter Holiday – I did a little post with some pics which you can see here. We painted the nursery, had a few day trips out, and obviously ate lots and lots of chocolate!

Worst moment this week?
I can’t say I’ve had any bad moments, It’s been a great week.

Miss anything?

Lots! I did get quite a few sharp pains last week which I’ve been told is ‘lightning crotch’ – no need to explain, I’m sure you can imagine from the name what that feels like! But I think that was baby J turning as my midwife told me he/she is now head down – woohoo!

Food cravings?
None recently, I’m just trying to eat as healthy as possible and get lots of iron in my diet. My midwife said I’m not anaemic, but I could do with eating a lot more greens and red meat for the iron, so I’ve been trying my best to eat as much of that as I can.

Anything making you feel sick or queasy?


Tiredness, backache, sore boobs, lightning crotch…

Belly button in or out?
In, but it looks almost flat now. Think it’s going to be an outie soon!

Happy or moody?

Looking forward to?
My birthday on Tuesday :) I don’t have anything planned, but Tom and I are off work so we may go for lunch somewhere and do a little bit of shopping, which will no doubt be for baby J rather than me! Unless he has something planned that I don’t know about… either way, I’m looking forward it :)

And here is the bump for 31 weeks!
