30 Week Bump Date

 
 
 
 
 
How far along: 30 Weeks


Baby Size: Cantaloupe, roughly 3.5lbs

Maternity clothes: Half and half. Maternity bottoms, but many of my stretchy shirts and maxi dresses still fit well
 
Stretch marks: No new ones, just the ones I gained while pregnant with Bubba.
 
Sleep: I am sleeping great. No complaints.  It is hard getting in and out of bed sometimes, but it does not affect my sleep one bit. Hubs gives me a little push to help out...even when half asleep.
 
Gender: Vivian!

Movement: Petit Bebe is very active when awake, I am noticing while her activity is consistent, but is starting to mellow out as she runs out of room...not experiencing as many judo kicks and punches, but rather just gentle movements and hiccups.










Best moment this week: Passed glucose test last week.  I always get nervous about that test as my Mama had Gestational Diabetes while pregnant with me. Glad to have that behind me.

Looking forward to: Completing the nursery. Hubs got the room painted, furniture moved in and some decorations hung! Ready to add some color to her room now.


Food cravings: I am still craving warm comfort food like beans and greens and black bean chili. I have had more beans than I care to admit with this pregnancy.

 

  Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.

 

Labor Signs: No labor signs. I have had a few Braxton-Hicks contractions where my stomach felt extremely rigid and tight, but not on a regular basis.

 

What I miss: A good drink. Hubs and I have always enjoyed trying new wines and bourbons together. I am looking forward to a beautiful drink of cozy bourbon soon after Vivian is born.

 

Symptoms: No horrible symptoms still. My lower back hurts towards the end of the day and my ankles continue to swell pretty bad, but I am not complaining. Overall, my body seems to handle pregnancy well...but I am going to keep my mouth shut, I still have to get through 10 more weeks!

 

Nursery: In progress! Crib, changing table, glider and lamp are all in there.  Now all we need to do is finish getting Petit Bebe's bedding and get stuff hung on the walls.

Congratulations! I craved beans (especially lima beans) as well during my 2nd pregnancy. Said "bean baby" is now a junior in college!
