Bump it: 31 Weeks

Hey Everyone! I'm 31 weeks along!


This week was a tough one. It kind of caught me off guard since I feel that I've been taking most of my pregnancy symptoms in stride. However I was introduced to a wonderful new (for me) side effect this week:

uncontrollable crying (ugh...)

It happened the first time when I had a setback while studying for my CEN (certified emergency nursing) exam. I scored lower than I thought on a practice exam and as soon as I graded it I started bawling and I couldn't stop for 15 minutes. By the time I finally got myself together I had even forgotten what I even was crying about. I remember thinking sometime during this event that I wanted to stop crying, but I seriously couldn't. When I told my mom about it she wisely told me "oh THAT'S the baby" to which I replied "ooohhhhhhhhhh." I honestly had forgotten that way back in my first trimester I read that this was a symptom of pregnancy but since It never was a problem for me before this week I had forgotten about it. 

There were a few instances during the week where I got really weepy for no reason which to be quite honest I'm finding really freaking annoying. I hope that this doesn't continue for the next 9 weeks otherwise I'm in trouble... However the good people at Kleenex will rejoice.

The rest of the week (besides all the crying) was very enjoyable. Kyle was off of school for his mid summer break so we had a  lot of time to spend together. We spent the 4th volunteering at our Church's hot dog booth at the downtown parade and festival then we BBQ'd with our neighbors. Next week we take our hospital tour!!! 9 weeks to go until we meet our little man!

Until next time I remain a happy (but sometimes weepy) mama to be!


  1. I love reading your posts! It brings me back to all the good times (and some of the not so pleasant) of being pregnant. Yes... being weepy is a symptom. But be prepared... your hormones will be even more out of wack after the baby. I ends up having post partum depression both times because my hormones were SOOOO out of wack! I realized (2 months after having Julian), that I had post partum depression when I was hysterically crying over the fact that Daddy Julian had not changed his diaper in the middle of the night. But, that hysterical crying was due to all the hormonal imbalance. So just in case, be prepared, when you start "nesting" stock up on Kleenex. There will be many tears of joy. But there will also be some tears from a few restless nights catching up with you.- Kate Peckham

  2. P.S.- Yes... you will start nesting! It's quite funny! BJ's and Shaws loved me the last few weeks of pregnancy. I was able to not shop (minus minor essentials like milk) for a whole month after Wyatt was born. LOL!

    1. thanks for the heads up Kate! Tissue aisle here I come!!!
