31 Weeks pregnant

Week 31 starts on day 217 and goes up to day 224. It is your thirty-second pregnancy week.


Length of your baby: 39 centimeter / 15.4 inches
Weight of your baby: 1500 grams / 3 lbs 5 ozs

Your pregnancy at 31 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum 

Did you know that your breasts will be on average 1 to 3 lbs heavier than before you were pregnant. Combine this with the weight of your growing baby and you may find you are experiencing severe backache.

This can be caused not only by the pressure exerted from carrying around that extra weight but also because progesterone, the hormone which relaxes muscles in preparation for the birth, also causes joints and ligaments to loosen and can create a curve in your lower back. 

Try to counteract this by correcting your posture when you are standing upright, ensuring that your ear, shoulder and hip are in alignment.

 

 

What's happening with baby

By this week all of baby's senses will be in full swing and he will be processing all the information the trillions of new brain connections to navigate and get to know the world around him and outside of the uterus.

As well as hearing and possibly recognising certain repeated sounds, including the sound of your voice, he will also be abe to track light, taste the fluid around him and feel his way using fingers and thumb.

    I`ve been able to breath so easily thoughout this pregnancy. The first 2 I was always breathless. This baby is smaller for a change. But I have been very lucky. No back pain, I can still sleep on my belly and still see my feet. Roll on October 14 little one!!

    Me and my husband are super excited and can`t wait to meet our little boy Elijah. I am 31 weeks today yipee. I have had so many problems with this pregnancy so making is this far is wonderful. Gestational diabetes, lower back contractions, dizzy spells and to top it off out little one is breach. Our Dr. is giving him 2-4 weeks to turn hopefully he does or we will need c-section. Yesterday I went and had a prenatal massage wow that was amazing. I actually slept through the entire night and feel great this morning. Recommended to any expecting moms out there. I just had her avoid my tummy area. Hang in there everyone we are almost there ?

    Coming on 31 weeks and so ready to have my 3rd child. My little girl is the biggest blessing in my life right now and am thanking God for her... although she will have to have immediate kidney surgery as soon as she is born I`m thanking God it is something correctible

    31wks and 3 days. My husband and I are so excited. This is our first child together and it`s a BOY! We can`t wait to meet our miracle angel because I was told I couldn`t have children after my daughter was born. Little Kaidens brother and sister are so excited to meet him as well. Counting down the days. Boy O Boy....Yaaaayyyyy!!!

  • sunshinepanda16

    It`s not anyone`s place to judge. When it comes to having kids, it`s a personal choice. I know a family with 10 children who are all well brought up, educated, and leading prosperous lives. People with good values raise great children, no matter how many, people with no values don`t have what it takes to raise even one.

    @noraa - “JessieH should be ni...„
    It`s hard for me to be nice to irresponsible people. Sorry, I`m from Philly. But honestly, how can you properly raise them with the morals you mentioned and give attention to each child when you have a litter to look after? It`s a perfectly reasonable question... And why, in this day and age, when birth control is practically free and readily available, would you reproduce so many times? It puts a strain on the planet and the food chain, whether you want to acknowledge that or not. If you think it isn`t nice of me to state the scientific and financial facts then continue ignoring them and expanding your litter. I`m just grateful for the couples that decide NOT to reproduce. They are the truly unselfish ones. Kisses and hugs

  • Nehemiahs mom

    Omg I`m almost done I cant wait to meet Lil nehemiah ....
