31 weeks, baby shopping and date night

As from yesterday I’m 31 weeks pregnant. I don’t want to gloat or anything, but so far I’m having the best pregnancy ever. I’m feeling very healthy and happy. And also very calm. I thought I would be, but I’m not nervous about giving birth at all. I feel so secure in that my body will know what to do. I still have a couple of months to go, but as for now, this is how I feel.

What is starting to annoy me though is all the comments about how big I am. Yes, I have a prominent baby bump, but I do not feel big or fat in any way. And I’m very proud of my bump so all comments like “Wow! You’re really big!”, “It looks like you’re about to burst” and “Are you sure you’re not having twins?” are frankly quite hurtful. If you can’t say something nice, then just keep quiet.

Yesterday we went to IKEA to shop for some baby stuff. This is the crib we bought.


Outside IKEA they sold frozen yoghurt. Why we don’t have this more in Sweden I do not understand. Love it!



We finished off the day with a date night at the cinema. We saw Dracula – Untold.



  1. Remember P!NK’s baby bump?? That was huuuuugeee! I would say yours is normal. And you don’t look “bigger” in your face. I am happy everything is going so well so far and I hope it will go on this way! Can’t wait to meet the little Manneh Baby!

  2. I agree with Anja – you look wonderful! I was HUGE with all three of my boys and got the same comments but after the early morning sickness with the first two, I thoroughly enjoyed my pregnancies and just ignored what I told myself were ‘well meaning’ comments. Can’t wait to see the little one!! ❤
