How far along: 31 weeks 1 day
How big is baby:
to week 31. Can you believe all five of baby’s senses are fully
developed? He also keeps getting smarter. That’s probably good to know,
since you might actually feel a little dumb. You’re not! It’s just that
many moms-to-be find themselves acting absentmindedly during the third
trimester. Some say that “pregnancy brain” isn’t a proven physical
ailment, but can you think of another time in your life when you’ve had
more on your mind than now? We’re guessing no. That right there is
enough of a reason to be so forgetful. From 31 weeks on, you’re bound to
feel a lot of the same symptoms -- some may get worse, some may become
bearable. And you might start to have more trouble getting around as you
get heavier and feel more and more short of breath. Remember not to
push yourself too much. It’s good for you and baby to get some exercise,
but definitely take breaks to rest as much as you need.
