I wanted to apologize for only posting pregnancy updates on the blog lately. Things have been so busy with the new house build and life in general. I hope to be writing more soon because I have so much more to fill you guys in on! Thanks for hanging with me
*How far along?: 30 weeks and 3 days
*Total weight gain: I feel like 35 pounds but don’t want to step on a scale.
*How big is baby?: The size of a squash, anywhere from 15.2 – 16.7 inches and 2.5-3.8 pounds.
*Sleep?:Pretty good but getting harder to get out of bed!
*Best moment this week?: Seeing the baby on a 3d ultrasound! Also, seeing our house getting closer to being finished! We also got some new furniture for the living room.
*Movement?: Lots of stretching and moving. I feel like she is bigger than Jackson was at this time because I feel her so much more, but who knows!
*Food cravings?: Just a ton of food
*Labor signs?: No, thankfully.
*Belly button in or out?: FLAT!
*What I miss: Not feeling so puffy, but I know it is totally worth it!!!
*What I’m looking forward to: Moving into our new house! Hopefully 6 weeks away!
Also, I am totally rocking the Miss Piggy thing. I am seriously nervous to get weighed Wednesday at my OB check up. My doctor is totally cool with my weight gain but I just don’t want to hear the actual #, you know? I actually stopped while writing this and went and stood on the scale and all I can say is O.M.G. *sigh* NO more sweets for me.
Below is a comparison pic of 30 weeks with my first pregnancy and 30 weeks with this baby. So much for not gaining as much when you have a toddler huh?
Below that pic is a comparison of me with J at 35 weeks and me now at 30 weeks. Eek, I think I weigh now what I weighed when I delivered my son. HOLY CRAP. I need to keep reminding myself that Jenny McCarthy hit 200 pounds during her pregnancy and she is a lot shorter than me and lost it all- easy peasy
DISCLAIMER: I know I’m being bratty/vain/feeling sorry for myself. I apologize, I’m not used to carrying so much weight and it makes me uncomfortable. However, I know how blessed I am to be pregnant and that every ounce will be worth it for this little girl! I just needed to vent a little and this is my place for that
