Hey y’all! I finally made it! I have been dying to make it to the 30 week mark and I did it! I don’t know why 30 weeks is so significant to me, but it just seems like a good place to be at! I can really start counting down the days now as I scheduled my c-section for August 31st which means only 60 days to go! Baby girl has been wiggling around a lot, giving me lots of heartburn and is currently sitting breech just like her big brother was. I know her position can still change, but as of right now I am sticking with the c-section. This week my husband and I got to go to Charleston for a little Baby Moon and it was GLORIOUS! I will be typing up a blog post from our trip very soon. Below is a little update of what has been going on with my pregnancy in last five weeks. I can’t believe I will be 34 weeks the next time I update y’all, I cannot wait!
30 Week Bumpdate
Size: Baby is as big as a Summer Cantaloupe! (and weighed 3.2 lbs at my appointment this week!)
Baby’s Gender: GIRL
Symptoms: lower back pain, some SI joint shooting pains down my hip (I have been seeing a prenatal Chiropractor weekly which has helped tremendously!) some nausea still and heartburn/reflux. I also getting up about three times during the night to pee!
Weight Gained: I’ve gained about 20-25 lbs. at this point. I haven’t felt up for exercising much lately, but am hoping to hit the indoor pool soon to start swimming.
Doctor Appointment update: I passed my Glucose test and also had an ultrasound this week just to check on the length of my cervix. My cervix length looked good, they said the baby weighed 3.2 lbs (right where she should be!). She’s butt-down as of right now and the tech said she even has some hair!
Currently working on: Finishing up the nursery and De-cluttering EVERYTHING! Its amazing how much stuff you accumulate with kids and I know its just going to get worse, so I have been trying to get rid of all the extra stuff I no longer need.
Food Cravings: Not really craving anything, but I have been eating a TON of cereal with fresh berries. Lately my stomach will go from feeling upset to starving in a matter of seconds. I also have been having a lot of acid reflux lately, so my appetite has been down when I’m feeling that.
Favorite thing this month: I got another prenatal massage and went on a 3 day Baby Moon to Charleston with my husband this week!
What I’m looking forward to: My 3-D ultrasound is finally here! We will get to see our baby girl in 3D in one more week! I also am looking forward to finishing the nursery and getting my house in order before she comes.
