Week 31 – The 5 Senses!

Oct 14, 11 Week 31

Baby, Happy Week 31! You are growing so fast this week, and you’re constantly moving around. It was so great seeing you again. I was so happy when the doctor did an ultrasound on you when I asked him to. Seems like you enjoy staying in the same position, head down and bottom and legs on the right side. I get really strong kicks on the right side, and strong punches on the bottom left. Daddy and I are really happy that you’re growing strong so quickly. You also love stretching a lot too, and I’m afraid I need to eat more to make room for you. lol

I’m glad to know that all your 5 senses are fully develop. And we definitely know that your sense of hearing is great because you respond to us all the time. :) You love to kick and dance when you hear a lot of sounds. And we enjoy talking to you every night and every morning. You still need to learn to rest and nap a little more. lol

Both Daddy and I got our flu shots this week, so we’re ready for you! Just be sure to arrive sometime in December ok? 😉

Welcome to Week 31. Can you believe all five of baby’s senses are fully developed? She also keeps getting smarter. That’s probably good to know, since you might actually feel a little dumb. You’re not! It’s just that many moms-to-be find themselves acting absentmindedly during the third trimester. Some say that “pregnancy brain” isn’t a proven physical ailment, but can you think of another time in your life when you’ve had more on your mind than now? We’re guessing no. That right there is enough of a reason to be so forgetful. From 31 weeks on, you’re bound to feel a lot of the same symptoms — some may get worse, some may become bearable. And you might start to have more trouble getting around as you get heavier and feel more and more short of breath. Remember not to push yourself too much. It’s good for you and baby to get some exercise, but definitely take breaks to rest as much as you need.

Your baby’s the size of a squash!

She’s about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long and weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds this month. She’s getting so big, she’s probably crowding your lungs.
