Pregnancy Journal: Week 31


How far along are you? 31 weeks

Best Moment this week? My husband and I were able to attend our local Republican party’s Lincoln Day dinner. Richard was the host and it was interesting to hear the local candidates speak. We also had a local radio show host speak. The children stayed home with a sweet lady I know with a little boy a little younger than Richie. The children had a lot of fun while we were gone. 🙂

Prayer requests? I am SO uncomfortable all the time! It would be nice to be able to have more energy and not hurt all the time. :/ I think it will be at least 2 months before that will happen, though!

What scripture is speaking to you this week? Ephesians 4:4-6  We were discussing one baptism in Sunday School today. There is only one baptism…can you guess which it is??? 🙂

Baby’s growth? Baby is doing well

Symptoms? How much time do you have? lower back pain, sciatica, tight skin on my tummy, occasional restless legs, fatigue, hip pain,  occasional round ligament pain…well, you get the point. Can I add crabbiness?

Medical Stuff? I had a midwife appt. on Monday. All is looking good.  I think Baby is head down. Billie Jo was pretty sure about it, but had to feel several times. Sometimes butts feel like heads. 😀
Weight gain (or loss)? Slow, steady gain. I am pretty much where I usually am at this point.

Cravings? Today I wanted caramel popcorn and made some. Yum!

Food Aversions? None

What Made Me Cry This Week? I am good this week. 🙂

Sleep? A little better than before. I was having lots of hip pain at night for a while. Thankfully it has lessened a lot recently and I don’t have to roll over every hour

Movement? Wiggle Worm!

What I miss…. I miss not being in huge and uncomfortable.

What I’m looking forward to…. The end of people commenting on how BIG I am. Ugh! I am ready to shut myself up, so I don’t have to listen to comments on my size, due date, and number of babies I may be carrying. There is only one baby in there and my due is correct. Yes, my belly is BIG. Please don’t remind me of it every moment.

Labor Signs? Just Braxton-Hicks contractions

Thoughts from the family…. The children are talking a lot about when the baby comes. It is pretty cute! My sister-in-law says my niece likes to stuff a pillow in her shirt and pretend to be Aunt Brooke! LOL!

This is me 2.5 weeks ago...the most recent picture of myself I could find. I am a little bit bigger now.

    Gotta love the big comments! I get them too! It amazes me what will come out of people’s mouths. I just get big when I’m pregnant!

    It must have been nice getting out of the house with just the hubs! Sounds like you had a good night, and the kids did too!
