30 Weeks

August 9, 2012

Pregnancy Stats:

How Far Along: 30 weeks

Size of baby: 3 lbs 5 ounces, as big as a large cabbage, measuring a tad you can tell by the rapidly growing belly.

Total Weight Gain: 11 pounds so far, feels like way more than that though.  I was shocked when I stepped on the scale at the doctors office!  I think its because I have lost all of my muscle mass and replaced it with fat.  But I am definately thankful for a healthy baby so far and not a tremendous weight gain.

Gender: It's a GIRL!!!

Movement: She is moving and kicking like crazy, still!  Andrew has even felt a few of her hard kicks...I think he realizes I am not kidding when it actually kinda hurts sometimes...still wouldn't trade it for anything.  I love feeling this baby move!

Sleep: We spent the weekend with my parents and I actually slept well for once, three days in a row!  It was crazy...but as soon as we got back...sleeping well went out the window.

What I miss: A good nights sleep, running to clear my head...heck, I miss all exercise at this point.
Cravings: Chocolate and more chocolate, nothing new.
Symptoms:  back and neck pain, a touch of sciatica, braxton hicks contractions, and heart burn,you know, the usual "pregnancy pains." but I can't really complain about anything major right now. Praise God for that!
Maternity Clothes: Yep!  Or the belly band...its amazing.  And Thank God for being able to wear scrubs to work!

Best Moment this week: Getting a good report at the doctor and getting to see a picutre of our sweet baby sucking her thumb!  Can't wait to meet this little girl.
