31 Week Diary
The feeling of bump growing is something that seems to have slowed down now . I feel like each time I need to get up from the sofa or the bed I have the need to roll my way out slowly instead of getting up so easily and quickly.
The week itself has been very relaxing.
No massive changes that I can see other than the fact I am lactating more than ever and a little sickness has returned but other than that this week is pretty box standard.
How am I feeling?
Well bar the sickness returning , I do feel quite relaxed but full of energy. My appetite is back to normal and I am sleeping just as good as I have throughout so far.
I have my appointment with the midwife next week and I fear that he is not yet head down yet.
I know each baby is different but my others were all head down at around this time but this one seems to give me that distinct feeling as though he is going to be a trouble from the start and I am worried he is not moving down like he should be . I know , still plenty of time !
I think there may be a lack of libedo this week too, I know it is something that can and does happen during pregnancy and I have come to an understanding that for me it happens coincidently when I am carrying boys, but although I am not fussed at all and am happy to be not entertaining the husband at his every beck and call , it does not help but leave me feeling a little sorry for his loss at the moment . I just hope for his sake that it returns before he thinks I have forgot about him lol. I keep telling him that lack of libedo is normal and he just has to deal with it , simples!
Since the little mishap of eating dates last week there has been no sign of tightenings or braxton hicks again this week thankfully , the usual movements from bump but nothing that makes me feel like he is getting ready and it is just how I like it . I keep saying I do not think I will ever be ready for this little fella and the closer the time comes the more I stick to it . I simply feel scared and not at all ready for him although I know it will be worth it in the end, I hope he stays in there a little longer or at least on time.
I can not remember suffering from much heartburn or did I?
It did make an appearance a little this week but only for a day or to and thankfully disappeared .
How is baby doing?
Well he has definitely been working his muscles in there. He is more energetic and active as ever and the kicks and stretches are becoming more fierce . He tends to move pretty much all times of the day, he does not have a set time when he wants to wake or sleep like he did at the beginning but I like the element of surprise .
He is meant to be measuring around 40cm and weighing 3lbs but I am not sure as I have not had a scan or visit to check for this , hopefully the midwife visit will tell me all is ok and on track .
Baby certainly feels fine and he is more than making me aware he is doing ok in there so just have to wait until next to see midwife and hopefully she will tell me if the boy is doing as good as I hope.
I really should make my mind up on this naming baby .
My husband likes one name and my family like another, I am torn and not sure but I think it is time we sat down and made a decision as there really is not much time left to go now .

Glad to hear you are sleeping well and eating well too. Towards the end of my pregnancies I did not get a decent sleep x

I'm pleased it all seems to be going well, it made me laugh that you think he's already going to be trouble! Good luck with the name decisions!

I remember that stage very well - have you done that thing yet where you misjudge the gap between two parked cars and get stuck with your bump? Maybe that was just me!!
