How far along? 30 weeks
Due Date: October 12, 2013
Total weight gain/loss: Let’s just say this: a shirt that was too small for me pre-pregnancy now fits me PERFECTLY big ol belly and all!! EXCITING! I’m getting fit with baby!!
Baby’s size: about 15.7 inches long now and weighs almost 3 pounds
Baby Developments: “ A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will shrink as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it’s not very keen; even after she’s born, she’ll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she’ll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face..”
My bump: IT. IS. BIG.
Baby purchases: Diaper bag, high chair, pack&play, two outfits, and a blanket
Maternity: Maternity pants, shirts, and dresses. pants now a size smaller and shirts a size larger!
Sleep: only naps. I can’t sleep more than 3 hours at a time without waking up.
Best moment this week: The 1 year old that I babysit WALKS now!! It’s so cute and exciting!!
Food cravings: WATERMELON
Food aversions: depends on how I feel.
Movement: She is super active, but I am noticing her sleep schedule now. It’s the same as mine! lol
Symptoms: Round ligament pain, back pain, exhaustion….when does the nesting happen? I want some energy!!
Labor signs: minus that scare last week, NONE.
Stretch Marks? yep. lots.
Swelling? well my rings no longer fit and my feet are usually swollen by lunchtime.
Belly button in or out? in, but moving on out
Emotions: all over the place
What I miss: bending over
What I am looking forward to: eating this watermelon in front of me :)
