Weekly Update: Week 30

{  A little lumpy this week :)  }
How far along? 30 weeks.

How much weight have you gained? Weighed in at 20 lbs. up this morning. Even after all those cookies....

Any cravings? Salad! After eating so many sweets between all of our holiday parties, I want salad, but I think it's more of a general craving than an actual pregnancy related craving. 

What are you wearing? I love being off work and not having to dress business casual. If we're just at home, I've been in pajama pants non-stop. Even when my family came over Christmas day... I was thinking we should have made it a pajama party for everyone! (Next year maybe... with matching pajamas...) Other than that I've been wearing my maternity jeans out and about, but even with maternity jeans and maternity shirts, my belly is still getting the best of them and trying to hang out whenever possible. 

How are you feeling? Symptoms? I'm still feeling good for the most part! Mostly, I just get full feeling, like there's not enough room on my insides. After being upright for a while it feels really good to lay down and stretch my torso out. I also get pretty worn out by the end of the day, as well as  little cranky sometimes.

Stretch marks? Still none.

Belly button in or out? I think 3/4ths of it is ready to pop out, but the last quarter of it is holding it back, 

Sleep? It took a downward turn this week, I've been sleeping pretty poorly. I have to re-position a lot, and my pillows don't stay in the proper supportive places, and I have to move more slowly and deliberately otherwise I feel like I'm pulling something. Then it's harder to fall back asleep lately, and when I do, I've been having rather unpleasant dreams. Soooo.... it's not been the best, but at least I get to sleep in this week!

Best moment this week: It's been such a nice week, I don't know if I can choose! Christmas was  a great time to see family and friends, and be with loved ones (even if it's only through Skype for some). Tyler and I have had quite a bit of time off and have been productive on the nursery. I FINALLY got my curtain fabrics! Tyler put the last coat of paint on the walls, installed a new cabinet drawer. 

Worst moment this week: Worst moment... hmm... I'm drawing a blank this week.

Miss anything? I am missing having more energy. I have so many things on my checklist, and although I'm making progress, there's a lot that I still have to do. Like cleaning, there's always so much cleaning, and I just need some more energy to do it!

Movement? Oh yes, quite a range of them. They are pretty sporadic now and don't last long a lot of the time, But I feel a lot of slow sweeping movements across parts of my belly as she makes major moves, hiccups come a couple times a week, sometimes she goes completely bonkers and I feel jabs everywhere in my torso. But the newest is her tickling me. Sometimes she'll start poking me down by my hip (usually when I'm laying on my side) and it TICKLES! Like someone is trying to poke you there from the outside, except with her I can't defend myself!

Excited for anything? Only ten more weeks to go! I'm getting incredibly excited and nervous about meeting her!

How’s dad-to-be? He has also been pretty tired this week. He has been off of work a few days, but it's made his days in the office more hectic since it is the end of the month and the holidays! But he's been having fun with his new Christmas toys and he's been super great about picking up my slack when it comes to making dinner and/or anything else I've been too tired to do. 

EDIT: It's really only 9 weeks! I always do my posts at the end of whatever week I'm writing about so I was really on day 7 of my 30th week yesterday, so there's only 9 weeks to go!!

  1. Counting the weeks for sure. Seems so far, yet so close. Yeah Tyler for picking up the slack, as I know it's in your nature. This Grandma, MiMi, Nana, ... ??? is very excited!
