How far along? 30 weeks
Gender: a sweet little girl, Evie can’t wait to have a sister.
Weight Gain/Loss: A couple pounds now. I have another checkup later this week, I’m intrigued to see where I am at now as it seems like baby had another growth spurt as my tummy is popping out even more now.
Maternity clothes? This has been my week of finding items I have been searching for some time for. I found a dress for the wedding we are attending next month. I also found a pair of boyfriend style jeans that are incredibly comfortable. Now if only I could find regular bootcut jeans that come in a long. My issue is all maternity jeans are capris on me because they are not long enough.
Stretch marks? I have a couple new ones now, but that’s okay with me as there isn’t much you can do about it.
Belly Button in or out? Belly buttons are seriously the weirdest thing, you just do not know what they are going to do. I still have an innie, but I may be on the edge of it popping soon.
Sleep: I’ve been having terrible restless legs lately which makes it very hard to fall asleep. I’ve been taking vitamins to try and help it, but it’s not helping. Since baby seems to have had another growth spurt I feel very off balance when I try to move and get comfy in the middle of the night.
Best moment this week: Evie has been cuddling my tummy a lot lately. She is talking a lot about little sister, and it is just the best to hear.
Worst moment this week: The baby growth spurt that seems to have happened recently has brought on all the pain I remember I dealt with during the last trimester with Evie. I fear my pelvic bone is probably separating too far again causing a whole lot of intense pain. I tried my belly band, but it did not help. I am finding that KT tape is helping a bit, Evie says I look like a pink zebra because of it.
Movement: Lots first thing, early in the morning when I wake up, and lots again in the evening from 8 to 11pm. If that is a sign of when baby is going to be awake all the time I am going to be very tired.
Food cravings: The food cravings seem to have settled down recently, but I do enjoy good food much more still during pregnancy.
Miss Anything? SLEEP!
Anything making you queasy or sick: If someone does not smell so grand in a store near me, I tend to book it the other direction.
Have people started asking when is baby coming?: I’ve had a few comments stating that baby must be coming soon, so I guess I am showing much more to others now. I debated going out in my pregnancy weeks countdown shirt from when I was pregnant with Evie, just to freak people out into thinking I’m actually 40weeks pregnant.
Labor signs: My Braxton hicks have been very intense lately, but no serious contractions thankfully, and hopefully not any time soon.
Wedding rings on or off: Still on! I am loving that I haven’t really had to go without it.
Looking forward to: Being on maternity leave after September. I am counting down the days til we meet this little girl, and I am so looking forward to spending a whole year with my soon to be family of 4.
