As of last week I had gained two whole stone. Given I was only 7 1/2 to begin with, this is about a quarter of my body weight. No wonder I feel more like an old lady than the 27 year old I supposedly am! My waist is also a whopping 40 inches. I have mild SPD meaning any form of activity kills so the days of chasing Holly around or playing silly games are over for now. An energetic round of Incey Wincey Spider is about as good as it gets until daddy gets home!

Baby Boy is moving around lots, generally just under my ribs making breathing a trial, or on my bladder ensuring a trip to the loo at least once an hour. I am up about twice a night, which is an improvement from when I was pregnant with holly, although getting comfortable in bed currently requires five pillows. John has to fight them off to get anywhere near me! At my last midwife appointment he was measuring on track, which is great as Hodson babies can be on the larger side and I don't think my slight frame could handle a ten pounder!
Here is my 31 week bump shot with Holly, and then today's bump shot with Baby Boy. They're pretty similar, I think, with Baby Boy maybe sitting a bit lower, and they are equally as huge!

So that's my update for now. Hmm maybe I shouldn't have written all that down, it stresses me out even more seeing it in writing!
