Pregnancy: 31 Weeks

by Meghann on August 10, 2015

31 weeks! Baby R is now the size of a coconut.

31 weeks

 

The back-to-back travel was rough this week. After working in Syracuse last weekend, I had two days at home before hopping on another plane and heading to Wisconsin on Thursday.

We basically worked non-stop from the minute we touched down in Wisconsin and I was asleep every night at 8:00pm. My feet swelled so bad that it was uncomfortable to wear my running shoes. I ended up rocking my flip flops during the race on Sunday, which I’m pretty sure didn’t help in the long run, but it was better than shoving my swollen feet back into shoes they refused to go in.

Other than that, it was a great event weekend. My temporary replacement is all trained and I’m confident he’ll do an awesome job while I’m on standby at home. I’m still sad to miss the remaining events in the season, but I’m also happy I’m being forced to bow out. My whole body aches today and I’m sure it’s only going to get worse the further along I am.

Baby girl is becoming more and more active everyday. It sounds a bit selfish, but I really love that I’m the only one who really gets to feel her move. I also love getting to know her personality before anyone else does. I never realized how strong the bond is between mother and child during pregnancy until now. My love for her has been there since day one, but the more I get to know her, the deeper I fall. I can’t even imagine how my heart is going to explode when she make her grand entrance into the world. <3

My goal this week is rest and take it easy. We’re heading to the east coast this weekend for our baby shower. Can’t wait to celebrate our baby girl with our friends and family. 🙂
