31 weeks down, just 9 (or 11 at the most) to go! This week baby boy is the size of a pineapple. He is roughly around 41cm long and weighs about 3.3lb. He is gaining more weight as baby fat is filling in underneath his skin. Not a lot to update on this week, my next midwife appointment is next Tuesday so next weeks update should be a bit longer.
I'm still in my normal jeans and I can still do them up at the button however they're not very comfy when I sit down. I tend to wear leggings or jeggings for the majority of the week as they allow for more room. On the top I tend to just wear loose jumpers or long H&M vests with a cardigan. I haven't seen any stretch marks yet so I'm hoping I'm lucky again and don't get any, my stomach doesn't really seem to stretch that much and it's all baby. My belly button however has started to disappear already!! It's not an outie but it's not as deep as it used to be.
I have been getting pains when I stand for long periods of time and especially when I'm at work as I'm on my feet the whole time I'm there. I remember getting these last pregnancy and would end up fainting a lot of the time because of being anaemic. Luckily I've not this time round so fingers crossed its just down to baby boy getting bigger and putting more pressure on my belly.
Im starting to find it uncomfortable to sleep on my belly at night and have finally got out the pregnancy pillows which I shall share a review on soon.
I've started picking up bits and bobs for my hospital bag as I'll need to pack it soon. I don't think I packed my bag last time until I actually went into the hospital as I was induced at two weeks over. I have a feeling he won't be overdue so want to have it packed and all ready by at least 36 weeks just incase.
When did you pack your hospital bag?
