Week 30 Bumpdate

30 weeks! We're officially in the home stretch with 10 more weeks to go (9 weeks, 5 days to be exact!) As fast as this pregnancy seemed to be going, I'm starting to feel the opposite the bigger I get; now I just feel like I've been pregnant for 2 years! Things are starting to get really uncomfortable so I'm looking forward to the single-digit countdown.

How far along? 30 weeks

Size of baby: Butternut squash (17 inches, 3.1 lbs)

Weight gain: Honestly, I stopped asking at my doctor appointments because it just depresses me. But I believe I'm around 25 pounds. Maybe more. Who knows :/

Maternity clothes: Oh yes.

Stretch marks: I don't think so. Sometimes I think I see some faint lines on my belly but it's hard to tell. I don't know if they start off faint or red?

Symptoms: Oh, Lord. My sciatica has been acting up so that's been fun. If I catch myself walking too "fast" it forces me to stop. I also sometimes get shortness of breath. It's just uncomfortable being this large. I can't bend over to put on shoes (hello, slip-ons). And I officially a waddler.

Cravings: Still ice cream (hence the photo above) and junk food in general. Reallll healthy. 

Gender: Waiting on my girly girl!

Mood: Over being pregnant lol. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful to be pregnant and go through this experience, but it's rough being this big AND caring for a toddler. I don't know how my mom had 4 of us!!!

Nursery: Still not happening at this point lol. Need to start ordering stuff.

Movement: Oh, I feel her alright! It's starting to get cramp in there so now when she moves it's sometimes uncomfortable

Sleep: Hit or miss. Although I'm generally pretty tired these days.

Workouts: Trying to stick to my Pure Barre workouts. I was going about 4 times/week and now it's more like 1-2x/week.

What I miss: Having my body to myself, i.e. not worrying about what to eat, wearing normal clothes and just feeling right in your body.

Belly button in or out? Umm it's just weird. I'd say out.

Wedding rings on or off? On

Anything making you queasy or sick?  Chicken is turning me off again.

Best moment this week: Seeing her progress at my 30-week ultrasound.

Labor signs? Nope

Looking forward to: Labor and delivery lol

A on the left, girl on the right. Look at how tired I look lol. I can't even fake a smile for the camera :/
