Pregnancy: 30 Week Update

I can’t believe I only have 10 weeks left before this baby is here! (If the baby follows my husband’s family history, it may be a lot less than that!)

I’ve had such a great pregnancy but the last couple of weeks have become a lot harder. I’m pretty much over being pregnant and am longing to able to move around without waddling or struggling to get up again.

I’m seeing the doctor every two weeks now and am starting to get my hospital bag ready.

This weekend we finished putting together the crib and will be working on the dresser this week so I can get everything organized! Very excited to everything ready!


Total weight gain: I stopped getting on the scale at 20lbs. I don’t think I’ve gained much more, but I just don’t want to know anymore. 🙂

Maternity clothes? 100% I still wear some of my pre-pregnancy yoga pants, sweatpants and sweatshirts.

Stretch marks? I noticed I was getting a couple red marks around my love handles. My belly has been really feeling the stretch the last couple weeks, so I’ve been lotioning up 2 to 3 times a day to hopefully avoid any more stretch marks.

Sleep: I sleep very well. I get pretty tired during the day and like to naps. I also tend to wake up when I need to roll over to my other side because it’s becoming quite a struggle!

Workouts: Going up and down the stairs to get the laundry has become a workout! I am doing at least 50 squats and 50 kegels every day no matter what though.

Diet: As I’m getting bigger, it’s getting harder to eat. I’m still eating what I was before, just less.

Best moment this week:  Putting our crib together and prepping for the baby!

Miss anything? Sushi. Hard Cider. Being able to breathe easily and rolling over.

Food cravings: Nothing. I am having more food aversions this trimester than ever before. I’m getting full so fast that I’m just eating small amount all day.

Anything making you queasy or sick? No, but some foods are becoming very unappealing.

Gender: Boy

Labor signs: Nope. But my belly has been pretty tender the last few days from stretching to fit a bigger baby!

Symptoms: The inability to move around easily! It’s getting harder for me to get off the couch, bed, out of the car, etc.

Belly button in or out? Still in and not yet flat.

Wedding rings on or off: Still on.

Happy or moody most of the time: I’m feeling really great about getting the nursery organized and the crib ready!

Looking forward to: Finishing the shopping! We still need a few things for the baby and I will be so relieved when everything is finished.
