Week 31 is coming to a close now, and it was an eventful week for mom.
The baby is growing pretty quickly. She’s as active as ever, and not only does she kick and punch, but when she slides her feet or hands along the walls of the uterus, my wife said it feels “kimoi” or a weird sick feeling. She’s getting heavier as fat fills out her skin, and she’s about to go into a big growth spurt.
As I said, mom feels “kimoi” sometimes, and she does feel sick quite often. This past week, she had a pretty strong dizzy spell that caused her eyesight to start blacking out. Low blood pressure is most likely to blame, but she said it seems to run in her family. She still can’t eat much at one sitting, so needs to spread out the food over the day. She’s always hurting and feeling sick with the baby growing and her abdomen stretching, pressing into her stomach, and her pelvis preparing for birth.
Full term is only 5 weeks away!
