My Pregnancy Week 31

Brought to you by
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.

    I’m almost 32 weeks along with my first child, it’s a boy. Starting to feel the weight gain and the fatigue, also really bad acid reflux and, to my surprise, really bad restless leg syndrome at night. I still get sick, especially with certain foods, and I feel him kicking my ribs and punching my lower abdomen constantly. But its the best experience I’ve had in my life. It gives so much more meaning to life to know you have a little one to take care of and live for. My fiancé and I are so excited for mid-August.

    I’m 31 weeks along with triplets, 2 boys and a girl. This is my fourth pregnancy but it’s been very different. I have had a lot of preterm labor, nausea and vomiting and I’m dilating and effacing early. My OB just put me on modified bed rest.

    I’m 31 weeks today . On my third pregnancy and my third girl. I’m actually very excited about having three girls and my husband is thrilled as well. I was having a great pregnancy but lately I’ve been getting a lot of chest pain, really strong acid reflex with bad pain. Staying out of breath quickly. Its been hard . But I’m just looking forward to meeting my 3 princess.

  17. Laura says:

    i’m 31 weeks, 3 days and having a little boy! i am so excited to meet him! i go to the doctors tomorrow to see how my little one is doing. yesterday and the day before, i was a little nervous because my little man hasnt been moving as much as before (still at least 10 movements in an hour though) i am assuming it is due to lack of room but today he has moved much more than yesterday. I cannot express how happy i have been during this pregnancy as my last pregnancy ended 12 weeks along, this pregnancy has been GREAT! not much sickness, not much feeling uncomfortable, not a scary amount of weight gain, and i have remained energized the entire time! I have showers coming up and the preparing is getting to feel overwhelming yet super fun at the same time! 9 more weeks!

  18. Lacey says:

    I am 30 weeks and 6 days. Very very excited for my new baby girl. This will be my fifth and final pregnancy. I have three from previous marriage and a boy who is 15 months with my current husband.. It’s been tough being older and having them back to back like this but I’m a trooper. The heat and humidity of summer is starting to weigh me down though. I’m going to be very happy when the pregnancy is over and I have a healthy happy baby girl. My older kids adore our little boy and are also super excited for a girl. Especially my daughters. They have enjoyed all the shopping and preparations for her. My husband is ecstatic to finally have a girl of his own too.

    32 weeks today and ready for my first child, my baby girl, to arrive. While being pregnant IS a blessing from God….I haven’t enjoyed it (lol), but I am thankful and I pray that these last few weeks will all be positive. She is a little underweight – this diva is already watching her girlish figure – but the doctors and specialist have already advised that she is not in the lower percentile where we should be concerned. We will just monitor her growth closely these next few weeks. The first trimester like most was horrible – tired, sick, emotional, uncomfortable, ugh. The second trimester I received that relief that everyone talks about were your body gets used to being pregnant. The third trimester has been OK so far – the back and abdominal aches are here and I am pretty much used to NOT sleeping now so I am in a state of acceptance and just trying to keep my mind occupied with her soon-to-be arrival. I am 38, this is my first child, I have high blood pressure, but she is very active and in good condition so overall I really cannot complain – and try not to. At 32 weeks some days I still want to bust out in tears, other days I want to sleep all day and other days I still think I am superwoman and can run around all day not taking time to rest. I give praise to woman who have done this more than once AND those who have carried more than one at once. I would have probably slit my wrist (kidding). I have not intention of doing this again, but I am grateful for the experience and look forward to being a mommy.

    I’m 31 weeks and 1 day today. This is my 3rd pregnancy, we are expecting a girl. This by far has been the most difficult pregnancy I have ever had. My first to were easy. I’m more exhausted now then anything, also sporting the bags under my eyes from the lack of sleep. 9 more weeks till my lil one is finally here. I can imagine how much you all are ready to welcome your lil ones. I have been ready for a while, LOL. I’m just hoping that these next few weeks fly by and no other complications come up. Fingers crossed 🙂

  24. Kasey says:

    31 weeks with twin boys, so I’ll probably get to meet them in the next 6 weeks or so. It’s funny, the specialist I have to see says the boys have been consistently measuring a week or two ahead of where they should be, and he wants to see the original ultrasound that gave my due date. So….. I may see them even sooner!!! I’m trying to enjoy these last few weeks – you know, the silence, the kicks and movements, the exciting potential. That will change and I will have two demanding little humans to love and care for. 🙂 On the other hand, I am tired of not sleeping well, and I am huge and ungainly and swollen and achy….. My favorite trimester was the second one. The first was very hard with morning sickness. This one is just plain uncomfortable! Good luck everybody!!

  25. Andrea says:

    Am 31 weeks and 5 weeks to go. We are having triplets and it has been very hard. I’ve been having this pain in one spot of my stomach told the dr about it last week and he said nothing to worry about, pain just hasn’t stopped. I get my babies scans today I hate having to drive so far to get them done but I will do anything for our miracles. This is our first pergenacie, and our last my husband wanted me to try again if they were all the same sex but we are having 1 girl and 2 boys.
