Pregnancy Update - 30 Weeks

 
 
 


Pregnancy Catch Up  
#sweetbabyk

How far along: 30 weeks!

Size of Baby: 16 inches + 3 pounds!

Symptoms: I still take nausea medicine at night and other than that, I still have a bit of my 2nd trimester energy thankfully! I also have an iron deficiency so I have been taking supplements daily. Praying for my levels to normalize before baby comes so there will be no complications!

Hubby: So awesome! He loves being a daddy already. He always talks to her and sings to her and tells her how much he loves her! He cannot wait to see her!

Total weight gain: +6 lbs. which is pretty good for being ten weeks away from due date!

 
Maternity clothes: Oh yes. I've been wearing my trusty maternity leggings with sweaters.

 

Sleep: I still get up constantly throughout the night to potty and now, the back pain is real life so it's tough to get comfortable throughout the night! I have started waking up around 3 am wide awake. I guess my body is preparing for those late night feedings with my girl!

Best moment of this week: Oh my goodness, so many things! Last Thursday, my mom, brother, and sister along with Joe's mom came to visit us and go with us to our girl's 4-D ultrasound appointment! Can you say PRECIOUS!? The room had a big couch and theater screen so we got to see her loud and clear! Her head was snuggled up beside my right hip ad she was cuddled up next to her placenta so we didn't get a full picture of her face but we saw most of it! She was smiling a ton (which was amazing!), sticking her tongue out at us, and opening her sweet eyes! Since we didn't get a good photo of her entire face, they let us come back the next morning for free! That time, she was showing out for us. She had her toes up in her face and was being so sweet.
 


We also had our big family baby shower Sunday! It was nothing short of PERFECTION! My mom and family did the most amazing job putting it together. I had 28 hostesses if that tells you anything! I cannot wait to share photos with you all next week!

 
 

 

Miss anything: Nope!

Movement: She is so active! I can feel her moving almost all the time and she kicks nonstop! She definitely has her daddy's long legs!
 
Food cravings: I have been craving apples and icing lately!
 
 
 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Strong odors still make me a little queasy but not as bad! Also, for some reason, spinach has not sounded great lately even though I know I should be eating it but I can't make myself!

Have you started to show yet: Oh yes! I am all belly!!
 

 

Gender: A GIRL! We decided to announce her name at the baby shower this weekend...

 

Happy or moody most of the time: I have been super happy almost 24/7. I do cry almost three times a week though, but only later at night if I'm not in bed yet. Haha! I get really emotional about things around bedtime.

Looking forward to: Seeing her sweet face in ten weeks (or less!) Her due date is February 27th which is my birthday but everyone seems to think that she will come before that!
