Pregnancy Update: 31 Weeks

31 weeks, well it started out well then went downhill pretty fast. I really don't want to seem like I'm complaining all the time because I really am very very excited about this baby it just seem the last few weeks have well, kinda sucked. 

On Saturday night I was struck down with a particularly nasty gastro bug. I was that bad by morning that B decided to call the hospital about me. They told him to bring me in and well, we were are all glad he did. I was already severely hydrated and had started having some contractions. 

But the contractions stopped after I was put on a drip and one bag of fluid was safely inside me. I then was on some medications and fluids for the rest of the day. I would like to say that I was able to rest while I was there, but hospitals aren't exactly the quietest places on earth. But I did leave feeling better then when I arrived so that is the main thing. 

And whilst I still don't feel 100% I am pleased to say that after having a very quiet day on Sunday, the baby has been kicking up a storm since Monday morning. 

The above photo is from Friday night BEFORE the gastro and the one below is from this morning. Recovering from gastro and totally wishing that I could have stayed in bed but the kids needed breakfast and to get ready for school. Thankfully all kids were at school today so I did get plenty of rest this morning while they were all at school. 

 Here's to hoping that the next 7-9ish weeks are smoother than the last few days.


  1. Oh no! :( I have a notorious reputation for tummy bugs. Had one at 29 weeks in first pregnancy and was in hospital on drip... 3 bags of fluids later and an overnight stay!
    Second pregnancy and I had a stomach bug at 38 weeks which sent me into labour the following day!
    And this time I had a stomach bug at 7 months...
    I hope you've been able to get some rest and lots of fluids and nourishing foods as you can xxx Take care. I'm now 38 weeks with number 3 and hopeful there'll be no stomach bug stories this time around! :)

    1. Fingers crossed for no stomach bugs for you! Best of luck with the impending delivery of your precious third child!
