Baby Smoochie - 30 Weeks

30 weeks, yay! I know there's still a ways to go, but this number sounds so fun in knowing we aren't THAT far away from meeting our newest love. No doctor appointment this week {unless you count 3 hours of blood work, ha} - I go at 31 weeks, then 34 weeks, then 36, and then weekly.

How far along: 30 weeks

Size of the baby: 3 pounds

Gender: Still thinking girl. It's going to be such a crazy moment if they announce boy, ha!

Maternity clothes: I am looking forward to cooler weather to be able to wear my long sweaters, leggings, and riding boots! I am so over summer.

Movement: LOTS and LOTS! Now is the time of doing the twice a day kick counts, and most days I have had 2 sets of 10+ kicks within a few hours of waking up. For sure, I can count on Smoochie to rock out around 6:00 AM and between 8:00-10:00 PM {the evening dance party is also one shared with his/her sister}.

Sleep: Meh, hit or miss. It's definitely getting worse. Having jacked up sinuses last week didn't help. Hopefully now that I am breathing better, this will get back on track. I am also starting to potty more at night.

Symptoms: I think I have all of them! Sciatica, snoring {according to B}, hip pain, bathroom issues, more nasal congestion, out of breath. The upside is no real swelling as long as I stay on-top of my water {still aiming for 80-100 ounces/day} and, you know, don't spend 3+ hours in the car! No more trips for me I think.

Cravings: Nothing in particular. Trying REALLY HARD to watch what I eat since this is the critical time for Smoochie's growth - I wouldn't say I'm great at it but trying for lots of fruits, veggies, proteins and limited carbs.

What I miss: Sleeping good, feeling well-rested {joke's on me huh since I won't feel well-rested again for oh about a year}

Hey stretchmarks! Can you please not get any worse?

Best moment of the week: PASSING THE 3-HOUR GLUCOSE TEST!

Worst moment of the week: Finding out I failed the 1-hour test, ha. 2 charley horses in the last week - those are horrible!

Other random stuff: Still haven't really DONE anything to get the nursery started. I have high hopes for some projects this weekend. I know we're still 2 months out, but I'll just feel a lot better once the room is at least cleaned out. Luckily, the friend who was going to give us her infant carrier brought that over, so just having that makes me feel better!

Belly button watch: About as out as it's going to get if my other pregnancies are a guide.

I always thought felt 30 SEEMED close even though the last two months always draggggged on. Also, with both babies, I slept better with a newborn (including waking up every hour to nurse) than I ever did pregnant. So when pregnant moms are like "I'm so tired now but I know it'll be worse when the baby is born" I'm always like NO I SLEPT BETTER! But perhaps you didn't feel like that with your first two? Point being I sympathize with your sleeplessness.

I feel like your pregnancy has gone so fast! I can't believe you are 30 weeks! You look great mama! I don't even see any stretch marks.
