My new maternity jeans are so comfy and I am happy I bought them. Other than that, it’s dresses and yoga clothes.Exhaustion and Braxton Hicks
Was good this week. Between traveling and the baby shower, I was pretty tired which made for some good sleep!

We had our 30 weeks appointment on Friday (I had to reschedule because I was traveling, so it was late) and got to hear the baby’s heartbeat. I can’t wait to actually see him on the ultrasound next week.As fun as it was to visit our Boston office, traveling at almost 31 weeks isn’t very comfortable. At times I felt bad for squishing the baby so much - but it's clear that he is happy and moving around a lot in there so I'm not too worried about it!
Same as last week – just random bouts of nausea. I notice it more when I am standing for too long. Feeling very large and in charge :)

Picking up our puppy from SFO tomorrow - can't wait!

What's the baby up to?
- Baby weighs 3.5 pounds and measures 16.5 inches from the head to heel.
- The eyes have now completely opened and are responding to light and darkness.
- A loud noise near you may cause your little one to jump.
A loud noise near you may cause your little one to jump. Baby may move to the rhythm of music. Studies with heart rates show that they may also prefer some types of music to others at this stage. The eyes can now completely open and the irises are now responsive to light, dilating and contracting as needed.
You will probably find that though you have been feeling pretty energetic throughout your second trimester, you are beginning to slow down now (yes). Pay attention to your body's signals and rest when you need to. Exercise is still an important activity for you, even though it gets harder as you get larger and heavier. Try swimming, stretching and walking all excellent options for pregnant women.
Your total pregnancy weight gain by this time should be between 21 and 28 pounds.
