This Week In Pregnancy: Weeks 31 and 32

I’ve been a blog slacker the past week or — apologies! Fighting a cold that’s going around campus (already!) has made my head foggy.

Anyway, in the last couple of weeks, The Kid has become even more active, which I didn’t realize was possible. We believe that s/he has flipped and isn’t breech any more, which is good! I had one good solid kick to the ribs, which supports this hypothesis. Most of the movement nowadays is more a sliding or rolling back and forth — a tennis ball moving from my right side to my left side and back is what it looks like!

My belly has gotten quite large and some movements have (finally?) started to become more difficult. “Scooting over” in bed is now called “Shamu shimmies down the boardwalk.”

Otherwise … there isn’t too much happening, really. Birthing classes are almost over — one more on Monday and that’s all. Still drinking a lot. All systems are still in good shape.

I’ve been a pretty thorough exercise slacker, which isn’t good. Need to change that up a bit…

I’ve played my trombone a few times, both practicing alone and playing with a small group. My kids at school have started playing. Through most of this, The Kid is quiet and still, which is not at all what I was expecting. Will be interesting to see if that keeps up when the community band starts rehearsing again.

That’s really all! Nothing exciting, really, but at this point in the game, I’m thinking that nothing exciting is a good thing…

  1. Thank you for your interesting info. I would like to add that during pregnancy we should not underestimate the importance of compression stockings! They are very helpful in helping us preventing serious disease such as varicose veins, Dvt and of course, Leg fatigue. Compression stockings are great for fighting vein pain, but remember: consistency is the key! In my site I am writing on how we can improve our leg’s health with just few simple steps
    Great blog by the way!
