How far along: Well - here I am...30 weeks pregnant. Sorry no bump picture this week - I thought a picture from today's ultrasound would be MUCH cuter!!
Baby Size: a cabbage!!! At today's appointment his weight was estimated at 3lbs 5oz. He's head down and we could see a little bit of hair!! YAY!! Grow, baby grow! Grow, hair, grow!
Maternity clothes: I did buy a pair of maternity dress pants over the long weekend - but other than that, none yet. But I get bigger and bigger every day and my regular pants just aren't as comfortable as they used to be sooooooooooo whether I like it or not maternity clothes are definitely gonna have to make an appearance and SOON!! So grateful for skirts and dresses that's for sure!!
Stretch marks: I don't think so but who knows?!...still keepin' my fingers crossed and slatherin' on the Mama Bee Belly Butter.
Sleep: definitely sleeping better - it's definitely not what I'd consider great sleep but it's decent so I'll take it.
Gender: momma's boy
Movement: Yup, he's moving. I've been waking up during the night and feeling him squirming all over the place which is something new. He also likes to curl up in my belly (or stick his butt or some body part out...I can't tell which it is) which is always funny to see because my belly gets all lopsided/one side bumps out!
Looking forward to: getting things done and working on some projects (baby and non-baby related)
Food cravings: Nothing really - food in general doesn't seem all that appetizing to me these last few days.
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope!
Labor Signs: The doctor said I could be having braxton hicks contractions but that's normal. Other than that, no labor signs.
What I miss: Ya'll know this answer by now (and yes, I still miss it, if not more lately, since I had planned on running a half marathon in a couple weeks and so I should be getting ready for that but I'm not and that bums me out BIG time!)
Symptoms: dry skin, pelvic area soreness, achy back, & getting larger and larger...AND larger. In general, just uncomfortable...and I thought I wasn't supposed to get like this for another few weeks!!!
Nursery: Over the long Labor Day weekend we found a great sale on frames from Michael's so we scooped up 4 of those for some prints I plan to buy from Etsy. We also bought a crib mattress over the long weekend. Next up is to find some curtains...
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Workouts: Still getting 6 workouts in a week - lots of cardio (that doesn't seem to be doing much these days but I know it's still good for me and will hopefully aid in labor and delivery, recovery, and post-baby weight loss!)
Things that suck: feeling huge! Everything is just BIG - my belly, butt, thighs, calves...it's so uncomfortable!! It may sound selfish but I seriously can't wait to get my body back. My body just doesn't do this whole pregnancy thing well :/ BUT I know this all needs to happen for baby Chi to grow properly so even though I complain about it I know it's good since it means he's still in my belly growing , which is all that matters!!
Things that don't suck: knowing he's growing properly - going for an ultrasound every 4 weeks gives me that piece of mind and reassurance that everything is on track and the way it should be!!
