Bump Update: Week 30


Comparing Weeks 10, 20, and 30....thank god for my tan now!

Comparing Weeks 20, 25, and 30

How far along: 30 weeks & 3 days

Size of baby: About 15.5-16 inches, weighs almost 3 pounds, and is the size of a large cabbage or length of a cucumber

Weight gain: 15.5 pounds...the same as last week; I seem to gain a pound or pound & a half and then won't gain anything for a couple weeks

Maternity clothes: Maternity pants/shorts and regular & maternity tops & dresses

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks contractions several times a day and some leg cramps

Gender: Girl!

Exercise: Running & teaching 6-7 days/week

Food cravings: Fruit....grapes, apples, strawberries, and pineapple

Food aversions: Nothing but still don't have a huge appetite and get full a lot faster

Movement: I really wish I could look inside my belly sometimes to see what in the world she's actually doing in there because some of her movements are crazy!  Definitely seeing lots of large movements where my whole stomach will move as she either turns, flips, or is just trying to get situated.

Sleep: Sleep is good but with it being in the 90s everyday this week, it's getting hotter up in our bedroom and I'm constantly throwing the sheets on and off throughout the night

Looking forward to: 3D ultrasound tomorrow and 30 weeks dr appt & hospital tour on Friday

Best moment of the week: Putting everything away that we got from my first baby shower & adding some more touches to the new nursery

I too wish I could see inside my stomach to figure out what she is doing in there. Some of the movements seem so awkward! Have fun at your 3D!

haha I keep saying that I wish I could see what she's doing in there because sometimes I have no clue what she's trying to do and watching my stomach just makes me more confused! I'm loving fruit right now, too!
