30 Weeks


How far along? 30 Weeks!!!  10 more weeks to go!  Home Stretch!!  It’s like the last 2 miles of a half marathon…I can see the finish line ahead…

Due Date: Officially: October 23rd 2013; but that could change.

Baby is the size of a: ??  She should be the size of a cucumber, but she’s about 4 weeks behind…

Total weight gain: 27-ish pounds…really hoping that I can cap it at 35…

Maternity clothes? I can still pull off some non-maternity; but above I’ve got some maternity skinny jeans and a really cute nursing top from MotherHood Maternity.  I love that secret belly!!

Stretch marks? No belly stretch marks!  I have been putting coconut oil on my belly every night, plus I use an after shower body oil in the morning, so my skin is super moisturized!

Sleep: It’s on again off again…I have been able to sleep in a bit more this week than normal, and I think as the the weeks go, I will be doing more of that.

Movement: Oh so much.  She’s been moving a ton!

Gender: The Bump is a girl!

Names? We’ve chosen Hadley as her first name…but are keeping her middle name a secret for now!

Best moment this week: NOT hearing back anything on my 3 hour glucose test…WHEW!  Thank goodness I am not facing Gestational Diabetes too!

Miss Anything: Nothing!!  I love everything about this time!

Food cravings: Citrus fruits this week!  Grapefruit, oranges,  but also mango, pineapple…and frosted flakes.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Ah….I have been more queasy the last few weeks than the first Trimester!  Oy…

Labor Signs: A little bit of Braxton Hicks these days…it starts in my lower back, and wraps around.  It is quite uncomfortable!

Symptoms: Finally feeling some heartburn!  It feels like I have an empty tummy…so I eat.  But that doesn’t fix it.  Finally after a few days of that cycle I was able to connect that it was heartburn, and not hungry pains.

Wedding rings on or off? On!  But getting a weeeee bit tight!

Belly Button in or out? 7 months down and still an innie!!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, but woah is it easy to swing the other way!  Super emotional about things that I have no control over…

Looking forward to:  The ultrasound next week…hopefully we will find out that The Bump has gained some weight and can stay inside and cook longer!

Baby purchases:  None this week!  With the Baby Shower just about 2 weeks away, we won’t be buying anything until after that.

We had another Non-stress test again this morning, and although The Bump was a bit of trouble at first, we did get to hear her heartbeat, and she is so strong!  I love hearing her strong heartbeat, and we also got to hear her hiccup!  It was awesome.

Man…check it out…

10 Weeks in…

Compared to 10 weeks to go…


Crazy…love it.
