How far along: 30 weeks and 2 days
Baby Size: A cucumber (15.2 to 16.7 inches long and 2.5 to 3.8 pounds, according to The Bump.) He’s probably closer to the 3.8/4 pound range, according to the last ultrasound we had at 28 weeks.
Weight gain: I’m up somewhere between 12 and 15 total. It varies because I usually try to schedule my appointments first thing in the morning, and the last one was at 3 in the afternoon, so it was on the high side. The next appointment is at 11:15 in the morning so who knows what that will show. Either way, I asked my doctor if I was doing okay weight-wise, and he said he had had to talk to some of his patients that day about weight gain, and I wasn’t one of them 🙂 so yay! Just trying to still make
good decent decisions but I am getting to that point where I am just hungry all. the. time.
Workouts: Last week was pretty good. I couldn’t go to the gym on Monday because of a work meeting, but things are looking up for the rest of the week!
Maternity clothes: Yes.
Stretch marks: Nothing.
Sleep: I can fall asleep like a champ. Staying asleep is proving to be more and more difficult. Still lots of pee breaks in the middle of the night, some Brooke wake-ups, and just trying to get comfortable…
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Movement: All. the. time. Everytime I ask someone if they want to feel him move, they can always feel him move. With Brooke, whenever I’d try to get people to feel her, she’d stop (where’d that shy kid go??) but he just keeps on truckin’…I have a feeling he’s going to be an energetic little boy…
Food cravings: Sweets. Peanut butter. Chocolate. Apples still sound good but I don’t crave them like I did. Oh, cereal. I was thinking about the cereal one last night, and I’m not sure it’s the cereal I want, I think it’s actually the milk, but I can’t just drink milk (usually)…it needs another vessel….therefore – cereal!
Aversions: None…that I can think of anyway.
Labor Signs: Some braxton hicks, but nothing unusual.
What I miss: Not a whole lot…so far so good 🙂
Symptoms: My memory is still crap. I’ve texted a handful of people asking questions and they’ve responded “did you not get my email?” so I go back and check and yep. I got it. I’m just dumb and can’t remember. Ugh. Otherwise, just the usual pregnancy uncomfortableness…
Nursery: Guess who painted the nursery last Friday?! If you are guessing Robert because he had the day off, you would be incorrect. Well…partially incorrect. We did paint Friday night, but I helped…or he helped…we ‘worked together’ on it.
Now we need to just buy the crib and decor and stuff…I should probably get on that…I’ll post pictures when we have
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Mood: Aside from the occasional peak of emotions (why are there so many sad stories going around on Facebook that make me cry and hurt my heart??) I’m doing pretty good. And freaking out about a few things at the same time…but I mean…that’s to be expected.
Best moment this week: Friendsgiving with most of our amazing, wonderful friends and awesome, delicious food! And the cutest babies this side of the Mason Dixon 😉
Looking forward to: Next week is Thanksgiving and we will get to spend it with some awesome family, which I am SUPER pumped about. And, you know, the food too.
Eat. All. The. Food.
but yea. all of it. eat.
What are you looking forward to??
