31 weeks

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 12:10 AM
Okay I am officially hating pregnancy now! Am I allowed to say that? I literally have not had a full night of sleep in over a week. For starters it takes me about 2 hours just to fall asleep THEN I'm up every single hour tossing & turning. I'm so uncomfortable even when I'm awake. I have to lay down, sit up, lay on my left side, switch to laying on my right side... every couple minutes! The stupid Florida heat and humidity are not helping one single bit either. Ew, it's just nasty and I hate being pregnant during the summer!

With Makenna I didn't have any back pain, Braxton Hick's, or the amount of heavy/uncomfortableness I have with this pregnancy. This might as well be my first pregnancy with all the new things this little girl is already bringing to the table. lol.
So needless to say I have had constant back pain for months now. Braxton Hicks started about a week or so ago. Oh joy, how those are just sooo special. Some said they didn't feel pain but I do. They come & go for sometimes a hour, then go away for a few hours then come back... repeat this process! :) It's just awesome <--- sarcasm!

So week 31 (as of Tuesday)!!! OFFICIALLY 8 months preggo. What is going on?? Well....
Kendall is about 4 pounds right now. If she's anything like her daddy she probably weighs more then that though. She is about 17inches long... although I think she's longer because it feels like she's trying to kick every single organ out of my body! lol. From now until about 2wks before my EDD she should gain about half a pound each week! 'Cause we all know I just want to carry about MORE weight, so I'm just sooo excited about this fact!!! :)
If wives tales mean anything then Kendall will have TONS of hair because the amount of acid reflux/heart burn I have is unbelievable (another thing I didn't have with Makenna)! I cannot get through 1 second of the day without my throat feeling like it's on fire. THANKFULLY my doctor said I can take extra-strength Zantac which has almost saved my life but sometimes that doesn't even help.

What's even more weird is I had a dream a couple nights ago that I had Kendall 3 weeks early. Maybe it's because I am miserable & do want her out early? Who knows, but now I'm freaked out and always thinking, "holy crap... am I in labor?", "what if I go into labor today?!".
I know it's not that realistic but dreams freak me out sometimes.

I've been getting pampered lately which is wonderful! Last week I got a pedicure and today I got a manicure (pink & whites!) and a massage!! It was awesome but now I feel teased and want more pampering! John says more is in store so I guess I have nothing to worry about. I'm hoping a nice facial, nice prenatal massage, maybe another pedicure in a couple weeks, etc! 'Cause hey, I deserve it!

What an adorable belly you have :) So cute :) I feel your pain. My daughter was born July 18th during a summer that's daily temperature was in the high 90's, so I know all about the discomforts about pregnancy in the heat. And the last month is the worst! I'm glad you were able to get some pampering in. As for this pregnancy, don't forget all babies are different and all pregnancies are different so you have to experience some new newnesses that you didn't have to before. Good luck with it all! She'll be here soon! :)

Is this what I have to look forward to? I am a month behind you. You definitely deserve some pampering mama. I second the body pillow and fan. My poor hubby shivers in the night on his tiny strip of bed lol but at least I can get some sleep.
