3rd Trimester

how much should my bump grow between 31 and 39 weeks?

mobile: how much should my bump grow between 31 and 39 weeks? 

I am curious. I know it is subjective and everyone has a different experience, but in general, how much should I expect my stomach to grow in the last two months?

The baby is a little over 3 pounds right now and expected to grow to between 7 and 8 pounds.

  • It'll grow from being a cute bump to people thinking that you are having twins or a horse based on the size of your belly.
    "What are you having?" "Well the radiologist says its a healthy little human baby. I'm a little disappointed, because I really wanted a puppy." LOL
  • I don't think there is a general here.  You could stay similarly sized, end up as big as a house, or anything in between.  GL.

  • Well this week (between 32 and 33 weeks) I grew a TON!  I could hardly keep my eyes open all week and now I know why.  I woke up today and seemed to have grown overnight and suddenly have stretch marks. :(  But at least I still have my innie! 
  • Oh gosh, I still have 7 weeks left.  A cm a week sounds lovely...  I'd like to stick with the size my stomach is now for the rest of this pregnancy, please and thank you:)

    LOL. This. Baby starts to put on 1/2lb per week near the end. It's your fundal height that grows one cm, not your measurement around.
