Weekly Bumpdate > 30 Weeks

I’ve been avoiding writing anything during the weekends because I wanted to keep the weekends free, but I thought it would be fun to keep a weekly update (or bumpdate) since I’m nearing the end of my first pregnancy.  I honestly wish I started this sooner so I could remember all of the little details of what happened each week, but it’s okay.  I’m happy I’m starting now 🙂  I’ll be sharing an update every Saturday until delivery.

So, here we go!

How far along? 30 weeks

Baby Size: About the size of a Butternut Squash – 17in, 3.1 lbs 🙂

Total weight gain/loss: 28lbs

Stretch marks? Thankfully no.

Symptoms: Let’s just say when people joke about pregnant women having excess gas, they are not exaggerating by any means…

Sleep: Waking up 1-2 times each night; having trouble staying on my left side so I find myself waking up on my right side a lot more.

Best moment this week:  When hubby put his ear to my belly after I told him he could potentially hear the baby’s heartbeat directly.  Instead of hearing the baby’s heart, however, baby boy kicked him. Lol!  It was adorable.

Worst moment of the week: Did not work out this week as I chose to stay under warm, comfy covers with the morning chill now in the air.  Going back to routine this coming week though.  I feel really guilty!

Miss Anything? Being able to give/receive big hugs from my husband.  Belly is getting in the way! Haha

Movement:  Lots… especially in the evening around 10pm.  I really think he believes he’s a kickboxer.

Food cravings:  Bread.  Not sure why, but bread is beyond delicious right now.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Thankfully not!  I did go through a fish phase, but I haven’t had fish since then to know if it still makes me queasy or not.

Labor Signs: Nope, but I did find out this week that the strange and terribly uncomfortable and sporadic tightening sensations I’ve been having were Braxton-Hicks contractions.

Belly Button in or out? In-betweenie 🙂

Wedding rings on or off?  Wearing the wedding band – still loose so far!

Mood:  Happy! Honestly getting a little irritable here and there though.  I blame all of the muscle cramps.

Looking forward to:  Our anniversary.  Has it been 2 years already? 🙂
