31 week bumpdate

 How far along? 31 weeks - 62 days to go or 9 weeks
How big is the baby? baby is the size of 4 navel oranges.  Approx 16.25" long & weighs about 3.3lbs.  This week baby Kendall is gaining more weight as baby fat is filling in under the skin.  Her color is becoming less red and more pink in color.  By now Kendall's irises can dilate and respond to changes in light.
Weight Gain/Loss: I've gained a total of 19lbs so far, I have another dr appt Sept 6th.
Maternity clothes? I'm getting limited on things that fit.  With all 3 of my pregnancies I never went out and bough maternity clothes, I just made my regular clothes work.  When I get towards the end of my pregnancies my regular clothes are out and Jason's shirts are in and even some of those aren't working!  I have 2 tanks that fit and my leggings are what I wear most days.  I'm ready to be back into my old clothes again.
Stretch marks? nope
Sleep: knock on wood, my sleeping has been good.  I wake up around 3-4am to go to the bathroom and then I can come back to bed and fall right back to sleep.  We've been going on walks every night after dinner which really wears me out and I'm falling asleep by 9:30.  Sometimes I wake up with really tight fingers in the morning, not sure why.  But hopefully I can continue to sleep good.
Best moment this week: Kaylee having a great first day at Preschool. She's getting to be such a big girl.  I'm glad she loves school.  I'm loving all the extra time that I get to spend with Keira too.
Miss Anything? not having my boobs touch my belly (sorry TMI), my boobs this time around are so much bigger, they hurt and they are heavy and they are starting to leak a little bit.  Sneezing and not peeing a little each time, and being out of breathe.
Movement: not as many kicks, but lots of rolling and being up in my ribs at times
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope

Labor Signs: None.
Symptoms: braxton hicks, tiredness & leaking boobs!
Belly Button in or out? In the middle (its not really in but its not out)
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: happy and ready to have this little girl here!
Looking forward to: almost being done, is it too early to want to have my little girl here already!  I'm hoping for the next 9 weeks to go by fast. I want to get some more fabric and make her 2 more blankets and get a few more things for her and then I'll be setting up her swing and bassinet in our room.
How the siblings are doing: they are pretty much the same this week as last week.  Still semi insterested.  Kaylee wants to know when she'll be here and asks everytime she comes in our room if the bouncy in there is for Kendall.  Keira is a little less interested in the belly this week and more interested in her babies and putting her babies in the bouncy.  But this week has been an adjustment for both girls.  Kaylee is adjusting to going to school in the mornings now and Keira is adjusting to actually being here and spending more time with mommy.  We are also working on learning things with Keira as well.  This week we've been working on puzzles, colors and body parts.


  1. Another cute bump this week! :-)

  2. Still lookin' super cute! I can't believe you only have 9 weeks left!

  3. Will it ever get old/weird saying pregnancy TWIN?! Holy cow. I feel ya on everything right now. Especially in the symptom arena and movement arena. And I'm starting to get that odd sensation that baby is trying to claw his way out...just really sharp and "pointy" pain down there. OUCH.

  4. People who look like I do when pregnant are super-jealous of people who look like you when pregnant! Gorgeous, Momma!
