Bumpdate Week 31

Good morning! It's time for another Bumpdate! 
This was at 28 weeks.

And here at 30 weeks.
I am now 31 weeks into this pregnancy and am feeling like the final countdown is around the corner. 

How are you feeling? Overall pretty good! I was having some issues with varicose veins but bought some things to help with the swelling and they have made ALL.THE.DIFFERENCE! Once in awhile I feel nauseous again, but it's pretty rare so it hasn't been so bad. I am definitely "nesting" and driving poor Devin nuts that "the nursery needs to be done NOW!"
Craving anything? Both salty and sweet, so I guess just food in general- hah!
Do you think it's a boy or a girl? I have had a few dreams that this baby is another girl, so I'm leaning towards girl.
Weight gained? 19 pounds so far. I have hit the stage where baby is mostly developed, so baby (and I) are just in the "fattening up" portion of the pregnancy-- oh joy. 😂
Are you still exercising? I am trying my best. I am definitely getting my walks in whenever I can and doing some light weight training with my legs and arms. 
Movement? Oh my goodness this baby is moving NONSTOP! Baby is big enough now where we can see the movement when we look at my stomach. Isn't that one of the coolest/weirdest things??
Favorite maternity clothes? Oh my goodness I just ordered some new good stuff on Amazon and I am OBSESSED. 
I got the white version of this belly band to go through the waist of my non-maternity pants. It is basically an extended/more sturdy version of the rubber band trick. 

I then cover it up with this belly band I've had for awhile. I have it in both white and black.
I also bought this dress in both navy blue and army green. These are not maternity, but I bought up a size and they fit perfectly. 
They will be great for after the baby comes too because they are loose and flowy. Also, they have pockets! So: flattering fit, loose waist, and pockets. What else could you want in a dress?
Insomnia? Thank God no! I have been sleeping like a rock, which I am super grateful for. I know my days of getting a solid night's sleep are numbered, so I am trying to soak that in as much as I can!
Anything else? We are honestly just so excited about this baby's arrival. I know I said this a few weeks ago, but I honestly have zero nerves about the arrival of this new baby. I have the "been there, done that, and we survived" feeling about all the scary parts of bringing home a newborn and only the positive thoughts going into this. Hopefully it stays that way!

Thank you all so much for keeping up with this pregnancy and this baby! I can't believe we are this close already. In just a matter of weeks we will all be meeting/seeing this baby for the first time and my heart could just explode with love/excitement.


  1. You look absolutely adorable! I just had my 5th baby, and somehow I have baby fever again!

    1. Thank you and congratulations! That's amazing!!

  2. You look incredible. I’m so glad all is going well for you. I LOVE that navy dress on you!

  3. You look beautiful! I'm almost 30 weeks (with my third girl!), so we're traveling the same path. :) Love that maxi dress -- looks so comfy and bump friendly! Hope you have a great weekend, xo

    1. Congratulations!! I am one of 3 girls and I have to say, your girls are going to LOVE growing up with 2 sisters. Will they fight as teenagers? Of course, but they'll also be best friends. ♥️
