31 Weeks with Graham
31 Weeks with Hannah
How Far Along: 31 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby Graham is the size of a coconut. He is about 3.5 lbs and over 16 inches long (according to Baby Center). I feel like he's bigger. I'm almost positive of that.
Total Weight Gain: 16 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes now
Gender: It's a BOY!!!
Movement: Graham MOVES!! A LOT!!! His movements are definitely getting bigger so I can tell he's running out of room in there. He loves to kick my hip bones and make big movements across my belly that take my breath away. Luckily so far I'm usually alone when they happen so no one sees me wince in pain. Boy is active!
Sleep: I usually sleep great. I pass out super quick most nights and usually only wake up once a night still to go to the bathroom. A few times I've woken up and couldn't go back to sleep but it's few and far between so far so I'll take it! I'm still having super random dreams often. I laugh that I've taken more naps the last few months than I have since I was a toddler. I'm SO tired!
What I miss: Being able to move like a normal person. You should see me trying to get off the couch, it's pretty funny I'd imagine.
Cravings: No cravings, just my usual sweet tooth.
Symptoms: Heartburn! Ugh. I hate heartburn. I'm taking TUMS several times a day now and that seems to help for the most part. I'm starting to feel super pregnant now and I can't believe I still have 8 weeks to go! Luckily the swelling has been very minimal in my feet and hands so far which wasn't the case with Hannah AT ALL! I think part of it has to do with being pregnant during the winter this time vs the summer with her. I'm getting a lot of BH contractions daily too. They hurt but luckily they are usually far enough apart that I don't get too bothered by them.
Best Moment this week: At my appointment last week I got to see the little guy! He's a big one! He already has some hair and is super happy in there. Everything looked just like it should! My Dr mentioned she didn't know if I'll make it to his scheduled delivery date so we'll see once we get closer. She's predicting he will be bigger than Hannah was even coming two weeks earlier.
Kisses for Baby Graham. Hannah is going to be such a good big sister! I love this first picture of her because just look at how excited she is looking at him! She said "Mommy, you swallowed Baby Graham" Haha!
Giving her baby brother hugs.
