Emily - Thirty One Weeks.

I was meant to post this yesterday but  I spent the morning at the hospital having a check up and then an hour after I got home I developed a migraine, (only my second one ever) I spent the next 12 hours hiding under my quilt praying for relief, which finally came at 2am this morning. You've got to love what I can only presume were pregnancy hormones. 


Today is -Tuesday June 17, 2013

How far along - 31 weeks & 1 day.

Baby is - A girl! 

Total weight gain - 28 pounds.

Baby is the size of - A coconut.

Whats going on with baby - Emily can now turn her head from side to side and she is plumping out and loosing her wrinkly appearance.

What going on with Mummy - I'm back at the tired, nauseous stage which isn't great but I keep thinking that I've only got a few weeks left so I should enjoy them! 

Maternity clothing - Yep, no change there. Some tops are still non maternity. All my size 8 jeans are packed away and have been for weeks. 

Sleep - Around 3pm every afternoon I can barely keep my eyes open. Then I seem to get a second wind around 7pm and I'm wide awake. Sleep is good though. Most nights as long as I use the toilet before I fall asleep I can get away with not having midnight potty breaks. The other night I slept for 9.5 hours which is my longest stretch since falling pregnant! 

Movement - Emily is still being a little diva and keeping me on my toes. One day she will kick constantly and the next I feel hardly anything. She goes mental when I get in the bath though which is so awesome to watch! 

Food Cravings/Aversions - I'm still craving carbs. Cheese and Onion crisps seem to be my favorite at the moment and my go to food. Not the healthiest option but oh well.

Symptoms - 

  • Tiredness. 
  • Achiness
  • Nausea - On and off but nothing as bad as the first two trimesters. 

How is this pregnancy different from the first - I still can't believe how two pregnancies can be so different. I guess this time around I can't just rest when I need to so I'm a lot more tired this time.

Best moments this week - 

  • A good appointment with my consultant yesterday. I don't have to go back until 36 weeks and hopefully that will be my last appointment.  
  • We finally got Emily's crib! Our friend is painting is for us. I will post photos when it's done but lets just say Tinkerbell is involved :)

  1. Congrats on your pregnancy! I know how you feel, I am only 25 weeks right now but by the time I put my 2 year old to bed at night I am ready to pass out myself. This pregnancy has definitely been a lot more exhausting than the first. But, at 31 weeks you are in the single digits!! I bet you're looking forward to meeting that little one.

    1. I cannot wait! Sometimes it feels like I still have ages to go and then other times I think about how I will be full term in just 6 weeks and that sounds so scary! x


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! I read every single message that is left for me and try to respond to everyone :)
