How far along?: 30 weeks and 2 days
Total weight gain: 26 pounds total. I gained 5 more pounds since my last checkup on January 23, which puts me at 141 pounds.
How big is baby?: The size of a zucchini. Weighing in at about 2.9 pound and measuring about 15.7 inches long. Thirty weeks pregnant is seven months pregnant. Just 10 weeks to go (give or take, of course!).
Sleep?: It’s been okay. I wake up just once to use the bathroom, but even getting a full 7-8 hours of sleep, I still wake up feeling restless!
Best moment this week?: Being told at our OB appointment today that baby is measuring right on track! Yay! And Avery giving baby kisses throughout the day!
Worst moment this week?: The whole Coronavirus! It’s horrible and we’ve been staying indoors and keeping ourself safe!
Movement?: Plenty! Baby moves around ALL of the time. It is the best feeling ever, and I find myself stopping everything to just really soak it in. Every movement, every little kick and hiccup, they tell me that everything is going to be okay. And knowing that this will most likely be my last pregnancy! So taking it ALLLL in!
Labor signs: Nope! Thankfully! Just keep on cooking baby girl!
Food cravings?: Smore’s Poptarts, sweet ice tea, iced mochas, BBQ Lay’s chips
Symptoms: Lower back pain, a somewhat tingling feeling from my butt to my feet. Shoulder pain and just a general ‘full’ feeling, and beginning to walk like penguin.
Stretch marks?: Belly is still stretch mark free
Belly button in or out?: Still an innie
What I miss: Being able to carry Avery!
What I’m looking forward to: Avery’s reaction when he meets his new baby sister!
