BumpDate ♥ 31 weeks pregnant
How far?31 weeks and 5 days already! The baby is already the size of a coconut and weighs up to 1.5 kg. We had aNother ultrasound and the baby is growing exactly like she is supposed to (#proudMommoment).
Kicking?Yeah, the baby kicks all the time, so I guess she’s going to be a very talented soccer player! However, it doesn’t make me sleepy at night and duRing the day I really enjoy her movements. I already saw my tummy move once she kicked (so weird and cool!).
How I feel?Well, it’s still very good! At least, so good that sometimes I forget I’m pregnant (is that bad?!?!?). However, I take very good care of myself by resting a lot, eating healthy and avoiding any load.
overall weight gain?Of course I gained weight, but I’m still at the same weight I was with my25 Week UpDate Date. So in total 8 kilos… However, I don’t recognize my body anymore because it has changed a lot…
The best moment of this week?The barbecue with our friends in our new home!
Belly Button in or out?Outside..!
Cravings?Well, nothing in particular (besides no chocolate). However, I am super super thirsty all the time.
Maternity clothes?I have a couple of maternity Pants and a few Shirts, but mostly I wear Looser Dresses and Shirts from Regular collections, like this Dress. This also helps me to continue to be Susanne instead of the ‘very pregnant girl’ ;).
Name?Yes, we have the name and it’s perfect for our little one! However, we will keep it a secret until our baby is born.
ailments?Long before our move last week, I was feeling a little stressed, and that’s not good for the baby. I feel like he is already keeping my stress level in Check when my body said STop when I was overreacting. So thank you little one ♥
Sleep?I sleep a lot and still, very well. Like I said, I feel great, but I’m also resting a lot.
Exercise?Still swimming 3 times a week (1500m). It’s a new exercise that I discoveRed when I was 16 weeks pregnant and I really enjoy it. It’s almost a kind of therapy, since I’m disconnected from the world and it’s just me and the baby.
Expect?Now that we’ve moved into our new home, I’m so excited to finish daycare.
