Pregnancy Update

(31 Week Baby Belly)

I’m still feeling pretty good.

I am still having some hip pain but the chiropractor is helping with that. I can’t walk much or get in much exercise or else I’m in a lot of pain. That isn’t helping the weight gain!

I don’t really have any big cravings or aversions. I was hungry for lemon stuff before but it wasn’t really a craving–just sounded good.

With James I craved unsweetened iced tea and I could not eat hamburger–EWW!

So far I really don’t have anything I can’t eat but I honestly don’t feel that hungry–so why the lbs are piling on I don’t know!

As soon as I found out I was pregnant with James, my wedding ring didn’t fit. I wore it on a necklace because I didn’t want anyone to think I was pregnant and unmarried.

Well, this time, my wedding ring was too big and I was wearing it on my 3rd finger. I can still wear it on my 3rd finger but some days my water weight goes up and I don’t want it to get stuck there. I can wear it on my ring finger but it’s still a little bit loose and I’m worried I’ll lose it. SO, I end up not wearing it most of the time and I really don’t care if anyone thinks I’m pregnant and not married (HA!)

My hands are falling asleep quite a bit–they did with James too. The chiropractor adjusts my wrists but it’s fluid pressing on the nerves so it won’t really go away.

I get heartburn most days. It doesn’t matter what I eat or don’t eat–it just happens. I’m sleeping pretty well–thankfully!

I do a lot of huffing and puffing–baby must be taking up room from my lungs. The other day I walked to the kitchen and back to the couch and you’d have thought I was jogging around the block.

I’m not quite ready to have this pregnancy over. I’m still enjoying feeling him move and the ability to keep him so safe!

I will admit that this entire pregnancy, I’ve struggled with worry that something will happen and we won’t actually get to keep him. In the beginning, it was because it was so early and I know miscarriage happens.

Around Thanksgiving, I had some bleeding and thought for sure I would lose him–even though it was more like  spotting than bleeding.

I have a friend who lost a baby close to term and I know others do too–so now I’m asking God to help me trust and not worry.

You can pray for me too!
