31 weeks


Wow! This dress really makes my baby bump look huge :) Picture taken at 31 weeks 2 days.

- I think I've been experiencing braxton hicks this past week! I really don't know what else the brief tummy pains would be.

- I am always being asked if I have stretch marks and the answer is: nope! Not yet at least. But the bump is definitely growing much faster now so I won't be surprised if I start getting some.

- Baby girl is finally starting to drag body parts across my tummy. It is the craziest feeling and kind of tickles :) (But I've never ever felt hiccups. I hope that's normal that she never gets them.)

- I'm finally taking naps during the day. Especially the days when I'm up at 6:30am for spin classes. I used to feel guilty for napping, but not anymore! It's just too hard to try and make it through the day when I'm exhausted.

- I'm definitely eating smaller portions! If I eat too much it feels like my ribs will split open. And baby girl already causes me rib pain on the left side all day, every day. It's her favorite spot to practice kicking :)

- I still have a major sweet tooth. Anytime I have a craving, it's for some type of dessert. It's definitely a problem, ha ha.

- We are so anxious to meet our baby girl!!

You are looking so cute!

I never had braxton hicks contractions with either of my pregnancies! I hear they are a nuisance! I'm sorry lady! I didn't get stretch marks at all until I was 38 weeks and they all of the sudden they popped out. Ugh. Oh well, I've learned to embrace them (kinda). Here's to hoping you don't get them, though!!

30 weeks was about the time I started feeling braxton hicks. Its a pain! I didn't get a single stretch mark, thank goodness. I'm excited for you, every single person I know who is pregnant is having girls. Girls are taking over the world!!! :)

Alyx said...

Aww, your bump gets cuter and cuter each day!! Can't wait to "meet" that baby girl!

Awe you look so cute at 31 weeks, you are getting close as well (; I totally know what you mean by not being able to eat big portions! I feel like my boobs, stomach, and ribs all become one during dinner :P haha

you look beautiful! yay!

it could totally be braxton hicks, or your muscles stretching to hold the baby up, sometimes that can be a little annoying/painful.

i have gotten tons of stretch marks. lame, but i don't mind, my body did amazing things and its just another reminder. :)
my girls didn't get hiccups maybe once with my 2nd girl. totally normal. :)

so excited with you! 9 weeks!! eeek, that is so soon!

Jenna Grace said...

You look great!!! She'll be here before you know it. Awesome- no stretch marks! Good genes you have.

Jennifer said...

You're getting so close!
I remember I thought the braxton hicks were her pushing her body all on me lol

dlpower said...

too cute! So exciting. I don't have the kicking in the rib thing. She mostly kicks below the belly button. Hope you're feeling well overall!

Alexis Kaye said...

your belly looks huge?! No way sister! you're just starting to look pregnant! you look DARLING! :)

I'm with you with the dragging body parts across! Sometimes it's uncomfortable for me! It's a lot of pressure. I think it's her elbow that she's usually using but she pushes it so far out like way up in my ribs!!!! naughty girl, haha

I had a sweet tooth during my pregnancy too! All I ever craved was ice cream and cookies and brownies. I think that's why I gained 50LBS!!! You look great pregnant!

Alisha said...

Just a few more weeks and sweet baby girl will be here!! So excited for you guys :) Praying for a healthy baby girl for y'all. xo

Brittany said...

You look beautiful!! Love that you are feeling her more and more. My sis in law never felt our nephew have the hiccups and he's now a perfectly healthy 18 month old :). I think every baby's different!

That Girl said...

I didn't get the sweet tooth till after I gave birth, but it's with me now!

Janna Renee said...

You definitely deserve naptime! I think I would totally crave dessert too. Maybe try to find some health{ier} options so that you don't feel guilty ;)

Morgan Nicole Ilg said...

oh man I can't wait to see pictures of her when she actually comes out! I get so jealous of pregnant women because, well, I wanna have a kid of my own! But I gotta get married first...and I know that day will come!
that is so sweet! I have been looking through your blog and I like it a lot!
you are a hair stylist! That's gotta be a lot of fun! I love to style my friends hair just for fun! I love your blog and I can't wait to be back to see some more posts from you in the future! You have a great day!

AGHHH! Your bump is SO cute! Feeling those movements across your tummy is THE BEST huh!? And go you for doing spin classes that early! I would have died :) I was thinking, it's so PERFECT you got a girl! She is going to be SO cute!

Antoinette said...

I think your bump has finally caught up to mine hehe! You look fabulous and I love that outfit on you. I can't believe you still have energy to get up so early for spin class, you're amazing girl! I'm feeling totally exhausted all the time now.
