Hello, hello bloggies! So happy that today is sad that I have to supervise a school dance from 8-12am tonight. Fun, fun, fun! But what I really want to "complain" about is that I'm getting slow. At 31 weeks and 5 days I'm fading. Not faded out, but fading. I'm finding my bike ride to work more tiring. Hard to get my breath. This week I have had to stop on part of a hill and walk it for a few minutes. Not a big deal, but I'm feeling this now. Going up the stairs, I get winded. Need a break before continuing on! It's weird though b/c I can still kick ass on a 40min cardio session at the gym...I take a lot of breaks but still getting it in! I can't believe that I'm 5 weeks and 2 days away from being full term...I guess I'm lucky that I'm only fading out now.

Another development, or more of a development is the major discharge I've been having the past couple of weeks! Lots of people have talked about discharge, I never noticed it until about 32 weeks. Now I feel like i'm gushing all of the time! I've even charged to the bathroom a few times, worried that its blood! Crazy!

And finally...colostrum. sooooo freaky weird! If I squeeze my boob (don't ask me why i'm squeezing my boobs...?) clear/yellow fluid comes out. It is sometimes crusted on there like dried snot when I take off my bra. Gross. But cool.

So, ya....that's me at 31 weeks 5 day!

Have a good weekend!



  1. You are a superstar! Still riding your bike to work? WOW! Good for you!
    It's so understandable that you're fading now. You're growing a baby that's getting pretty big now!
    Ugh, and I would just die if I had to stay up until midnight supervising a dance...especially after working all day.
    Have a good one, hot mama!

  2. Thanks for sharing all the good and bad details of pregnancy! I can't believe how close you're getting!

  3. I was so excited about colostrum, LOL!! It was the coolest thing to me because my goal has always been to breastfeed.

  4. You are too funny. 1st, don't sweat the fading. I hear the second the baby comes out you just feel so much more energetic. (At least we can hope for that) Oh the discharge. Mine seems to be so much worse in the morning. You? And the boob juice. Isn't it gross...but yet so cool? lol

  5. Pregnancy is so glamorous, isn't it? :) I don't have the leaking boobs yet but I'm sure that's cool and weird all at the same time!

  6. ewwww........haha

    Congrats on 31 weeks 5 days!

  7. I'm already winded going up stairs and on hikes and I"m only 20 weeks so you're in good shape. Although my boobs started the leaking much earlier - I thought it was strange and my doctor said some girls just get their milk in earlier than others...maybe that means my supply will be super?

  8. Omigosh you are getting so close!! And I totally hear ya on the fading. I've just started to notice the shortness of breath after walking up stairs...I feel SO out of shape!! And no leaking boobs for me yet, but glad to have a heads up of what's coming!!
