30 Week Baby Update

Due Date? October 2nd

How far along? 30 weeks today

How big is baby? about 3 pounds and the size of an eggplant

Weight gain? +23

Maternity clothes? Yep

Stretchmarks? not yet

Sleep? I am currently using 3 pillows--a body pillow, an L-shaped pillow and a regular pillow and that seems to be helping me get comfortable.

Best moment this week? Swimming and relaxing in the pool.

Movement? All the time.

Food cravings? Nothing specific. Not able to eat much at a time because then I can't breathe.

Gender? Team Green

Labor signs? Not yet.

Belly button in or out? in

What I miss? Laying and sleeping on my stomach, being able to breath, and not waddling.

What I am looking forward to? The end! I know I have quite a few weeks to go but I have reached the stage of wanting it to be over. I am hot all the time, uncomfortable and I just want to feel like 'me' again. I am already longing to workout and get my body back! We know this is our last baby so operation 'hot mama' will begin once I have the okay to workout and I am so looking forward to that day! :o)

Milestones? 30 weeks! Woohoo! In two months we will meet this little peanut!

Next doctor's appointment? August 5th (holy crap--August???)--which will put me just shy of 32 weeks. First BP was 144/86. The second one was better at 138/76. NSTs are going well and baby looks good so right now things are pretty uneventful, which is good!

Here is my bump pic!!


  1. What about seeing me as the best moment this week?! :oP
    I'm so over being hot! And just got a body pillow yesterday. My back didn't hurt, but my neck still did.

  2. You look great and how is it already 30 weeks?! crazy!

  3. You look amazing!! And I am totally going to buy more pillows tomorrow, because I am sooo uncomfortable at night!

  4. What an adorable bump! Only a few weeks until full term!!


I'd love to hear from you!! :o)
