I am now 31 weeks, so here is my 30 week update.
How big is baby: Three pounds and the size of a head of cabbage.
Weight gain: 19 Pounds
Sleep: This week sleeping has been terrible. I used the pregnancy pillow,but it didn’t really help. I thought that the end of this pregnancy and being in the third trimester was finally catching up with me,but I found out that I had a sinus infection. So, not being able to breath well wasn’t helping. Once I got medicine, this week, I have been back to sleeping great so that is a relief.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Nothing to report here. Peanut Butter cups from Aldi and Walmart, Grapefruit, Cuties, mexican food, spicy food, sushi(cooked rolls), and green smoothies have been hitting the spot lately.
Movement: Lots more movement, she doesn’t kick that much,but she does like to adjust herself a lot which freaks Grant out because you will be able to feel a limb moving or poking out more so that with your hand you can feel it.
What I’m loving: Modern medicine and getting good deals at an annual consignment sale here in Huntsville. I also got my hair cut this weekend, and I got to see Kira, Andrew, and Alana as well as my parents which was wonderful.
Symptoms: This week I had a lot of drainage, sinus pressure, coughing, but found out those are all from a sinus infection rather than pregnancy. I can tell that sometimes when she stretches out my stomach is a little bit tighter, but most of the time it doesn’t feel stretched yet to where it is uncomfortable.
What I’m looking forward to: My parents are coming for a visit this week which gave us a great excuse to really clean and organize our place as well as a little extra help on getting things done. It is so wonderful getting to host in a house. More room to spread out,etc.
Thoughts: This are starting to get down to the wire, we are writing up our birth plan, got accepted to a good pediatrician, and grilled my OBGYN and being more and more happy that we picked her.
Let me know if you have any questions!
