31 Week Update

Appointments are now every two weeks (starting at 30 weeks but I missed posting my last update). News from last week: no weight gain since week 28 and baby’s size is back on the “average” track.

Physically, I’m still feeling pretty good overall but I’m starting to feel like a big lump getting up from the couch or shifting sides in bed. Putting on socks is also getting to be a challenge. It’s a fun challenge though, as each morning I’ve been trying some creative ways to get those socks on.

With regards to sleep, it hasn’t been so great. Once again (like my first trimester), I’m up 2-3 times a night to empty that bladder! This must be mother nature’s way of getting me used to the little sleep I’ll get with the newborn.

When it comes to clothes, I’ve noticed my belly’s significant growth. I’ve made it this far without purchasing very many maternity clothes: 3 pairs of pants and 1 dress. I made 2 skirts and 1 top. However, I now have very little pre-pregnancy tops that will fit. I may need to make just a few more purchases to get through the last couple of months.
