How far along: 30 weeks
Size of baby: Cucumber
Gender: Girl (you can read the details of our gender reveal here)
Weight gain: Right around four bags of sugar if you want to do the math. I’m counting on you being too lazy.
Maternity clothes: I finally acknowledged that regular clothing was cutting off blood circulation and decided to invest in my maternity wardrobe for the sake of our baby’s growth and development. PinkBlush to the rescue! I bought four new tops I can wear to work with leggings and jeans that are so adorable and much more comfortable. Still looking for dresses to wear to upcoming weddings and baby showers.
Nursery: We have a crib! And a dresser! And a rocking chair! The crib was our first big baby purchase and I’m obsessed. I pinky promise to post all the details once the room is finished.
Movement: This little lady doesn’t quit. She is constantly on the go, exploring all the nooks and crannies of her lovely womb home. Cory rubs the belly and talks to her every night and I swear she tries to bust through my nonexistent abs. Swoooon!
Symptoms: It’s hard to explain but I have a constant feeling of fullness unrelated to the amount of food I’m eating. My whole belly just feels tight and crowded.
Also exhaustion. My ideal bedtime these days is 9:30 p.m.
Sleep: I’m actually sleeping pretty well once I can get comfortable thanks to my Snoogle and essential oil diffuser. There have been some weird dreams though. I can’t talk about it or you won’t look at me the same.
Cravings: Fresh fruit and veggies. Peanut butter toast. The occasional cheeseburger or pizza slice(s). You know, the usual.
Workouts: Still walking two to three miles daily and doing my prenatal pilates and strength training videos. Now that the weather is warming up I’ve also started swimming. The cool water feels amazing and helps relieves the pressure on my back from all the extra weight. If you saw what looked like a human buoy bobbing around Lake Keowee on Memorial Day weekend, that was me.
Name: I bought this name book on Amazon because we’re still not sold on a first and second name. It feels like such a huge responsibility and we want to get it just right.
OMG I’m going to be someone’s mom in ten weeks!!!
