31 Weeks

How far along? 31 Weeks
  • Baby Size: Hogan is the size of a head of lettuce, about 18 inches and 3.2 lbs
  • Weight gain: 12 pounds
  • Maternity Clothes: I've decided that I no longer want to wear pants. I seriously only care about living in my nightgowns and maxi dresses. Clearly from this picture I am in desperate need of a bra that will lift up my huge boobs! I'm thinking a trip to Motherhood Maternity is in my near future.
  • Stretch Marks: No, I'm still using Mama Bee Tummy butter every day.
  • Sleep: I love napping, and I love sleeping. I'd like them better if they weren't interrupted by my bladder, but I'm happy to even be blessed with this pregnancy.
  • Gender: Girl
  • Movement: Yes, and I try to catch her on video all of the time! I have two videos that are okay, but most of the time she stops when I press record and then continues right after I end the recording. I'm going to miss her kicks when she's born.
  • Best moment this week: This has been another great week of lounging around. I spent a few days at the pool which is amazing on my back, I wish I could finish out these last few weeks in the water. I feel like I totally understand why women give birth in the water, and if I had that choice I think I would!
  • Looking forward to: My baby shower this Saturday! There were days that my infertility made me believe I would never get the chance to have a baby shower, and now it's my turn, it's still so surreal. I am so blessed.
  • Food Cravings: Not really any cravings this week besides bottled water.
  • Anything making you queasy or sick: The only pain I've been feeling is back pain. I soak in Epsom salt every single night which does help. But no more morning sickness to report.
  • Labor Signs: None.
  • Workouts: Walking from the bed to the bathroom, and occasionally the kitchen. Bam! That's my workout. I huff and puff all of the time and everyday tasks are getting harder and harder to accomplish. I don't  know how I am going to go back to my classroom! I seriously think about it all of the time, I just can't fathom being on my feet for 8 hours!


  1. That is exciting your baby shower is coming up! And I feel the same way about pants but I am not pregnant! lol It is just a work out to be preggo so don't feel bad!

  2. Have fun with the baby shower. It's so nice to finally have a celebration like that for yourself. Hogan is such a cute name too!

  3. Napping is the best! Enjoy your baby shower this weekend. You deserve a celebration for you and your sweet girl.
