Baby at 31 Weeks Pregnant
Your growing baby will put on a half pound a week for the next seven weeks. Like we’ve said before, it’s not a weight gaining competition. You don’t need to win this.
Your partner will likely feel the baby having hiccups. It’s probably not a good idea to try to scare her. She won’t like loud noises.

Even though there are two months left, she is probably feeling ready for this to be all over with.
Because the baby’s rapid growth, her organs are getting squished. this can make it hard to breathe, give her heartburn, and even make her a bit constipated. She may start blaming you for doing this to her (hypothetically speaking, of course).
She’s getting to the point where it’s hard for her to bend over. Offer to clip her toenails (or, if you’re feeling very brave, offer to paint her toenails). Best bet, just schedule a pedicure for her. Brownie point overload.
You’re one week closer to the moment you get to hold your newborn love spawn. It’s going to be great.
Pregnancy Tips for Dad at 31 Weeks
Make a list of possible scenarios for when your partner starts labor. What will you do if it happens at home? At work? At the grocery store? At the club?
Start to pack a hospital bag. Pack clean clothing and a spare phone charger. And maybe a flask for dad (Kid-ding. Seriously, do not bring booze.)
Make sure you are preregistered with the hospital. You can do this by scheduling an appointment with the hospital to talk about your upcoming birth experience, as well as fill out all the paperwork (so you don’t have to do this during labor).
