31 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2


Oh. My. Goodness. Just 9 weeks to go! I cannot believe we're in the single figure countdown already. I'm starting to feel slightly unprepared now, but with only today and tomorrow left at work I'm sure I'll manage to get things done! Baby is now the size of a coconut, at about 3 1/3lbs and is roughly 41cm long.

I feel like a broken record having to say I was sick AGAIN this week! I just don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm blaming these boy hormones haha. It only lasted a day luckily and Pip didn't stop wriggling all day, so I wasn't too worried.

The biggest symptom this week has been breathlessness! No matter how I sit, lay, stand I'm finding it much harder to breath. Just doing simple tasks such as going up the stairs has me completely out of breath haha. I can feel baby really high up now, so I think he's just squishing my organs that little bit more. I've taken to being braless whenever I'm home as it's way more comfortable too haha.

I'm seeing my midwife on Wednesday for my 31 week appointment. I also still need to rebook my whooping cough jab after I had to cancel it a few weeks ago! Hopefully all is okay with baby boy, although I have a feeling he may not be head down anymore... but who knows!


  1. Aww it's all so exciting, though reading all of your symptoms takes me straight back to the 'other side' of pregnancy - the one which isn't all glowing and growing bumps! I hope your symptoms ease up soon :)

  2. Eeeeek! Single figures! How did this happen?! Lol. So sorry to hear you've been sick Hun, you don't need that on top of everything! I am with you on breathlessness though, it's so frustrating isn't it. You look fabulous though xxx

  3. Single figures! How exciting! Hopefully the heat this week hasn't been too bad for you, I hated being pregnant over summer. Xx

  4. Ahh it's soon now, how exciting! Woo hoo to finishing work, just relax (as much as Indiana will let you haha). Fingers crossed baby boy is head down but if not he has plenty of time to readjust :)
