I can't believe I'm giving you my 30 week update. It feels like just yesterday I was announcing that I was pregnant. I've been traveling for work the past couple days and I have to say I'm really started to feel exhausted and uncomfortable. My feet and toes are swelling if I stand too long and my sides feel like they're ripping apart. Only 9 more weeks and I'll have a little baby to keep me up at night!
Due Date? September 27th is the official date, however we have a scheduled c/s for September 20th.
How far along? 30 weeks
How big is baby? The baby is the size of cabbage about 15.7" and about 2.75lbs.
Weight gain? +22
What's going on with baby? As the baby continues to practice breathing, hiccups become more regularly. Weight gain will continue at about a pound per week until delivery.
Stretchmarks? Nothing new.
Sleep? Same as last week. When I do stay asleep it's really good deep sleep however if I get woken up, chances are I'll be awake for at least an hour before falling back to sleep.
Best moment this week? It's my best and worst moment. I love to travel, even if it's for work so when Wednesday rolled around and I had to head out, I was excited to see some coworkers I only see maybe once a year. It's also my worst moment because I skyped with Rick & Addie Wednesday evening and she immediately pouted out her lip and said she missed me. It broke my heart but makes me even more excited to see her this afternoon!
Movement? Definitely slowing down during the day but I do feel an occasional jab which makes me stop and have to catch my breath.
Food cravings? Nothing right now really.
Labor signs? none.
Belly button in or out? In and slowly thinning.
What I miss? Cute clothes. Summer is usually one of my favorite times of year and I hate that I'm feeling huge right now.
What I am looking forward to? About 5 or so hours from now when I should be seeing Addie. Spending the entire weekend with her out and about.
Milestones? Nothing that I can think of.
Next doctor's appointment? July 26th where we'll have another ultrasound.
