30 Week Bump Update, OMG

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 :)

30 weeks

*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 :)

    well, i think you look beautiful, but i know how you feel! and you don’t even have to include a disclaimer- it’s totally fine to vent! the extra weight does put a lot of pressure on your body when you’re not used to it.. i was HURTING the last part of my last pregnancy. i physically couldn’t handle all the weight! and i agree that it’s a wonderful miracle of a blessing to have a baby, but pregnancy can be painful and uncomfortable and there’s nothing wrong with admitting it! :) i can’t wait to see your baby girl!!!

    My blog has been “neglected” too recently, because other than pregnancy updates and 5 Question Friday, the majority of thoughts in my head are  complaints about what I can’t do and worries about the baby’s health. I wish I was happier with the way I looked so there could be more pics, but I’m just not. I didn’t lose all the weight from the first time, so while I’ve gained less for this pregnancy, I’m the same weight I was at this time the first time around. We all have personal struggles with pregnancy, but I think it’s easier to get through them with a toddler who needs you. :)

    You really do look great, but I know that feeling.  I feel enormous, and no amount of anyone saying ‘Oh but you dont look big!’ changes that fact. 

    Its okay to vent! Yes, it is a blessing to have a baby, I will never say that it isnt worth all the pain…it is, but that doesnt change the actual physical discomfort…which is real!!

    awww, I’m sad that you felt you needed to add a disclaimer. This is totally your place to vent and it’s reasonable to want to complain about feeling like miss piggy!!! although… you don’t like it at all, you look great! and it’ll alllll come off after this lil girl comes :)
