30 weeks!

Happy 30 weeks to my little peanut!

He/she is definitely growing quickly in there… and loving to move around. On mornings that I don’t work, I tend to stay in bed a little bit longer than usual, and just enjoy the movement I feel from in there- and at the same time, let my mind go crazy wondering if its a SON or a DAUGHTER we have in there!!

The suspense… It’s driving me wonderfully crazy.

How far along? Exactly 30 weeks!

Do you think it’s a boy or a girl? We go back and forth. Both of us 100% want a girl… and 100% want a boy. So we’re good either way 😉

Maternity clothes? Oh yes! I wear some non-maternity clothes from time to time, but the maternity apparel is way more comfortable.

Stretch marks? Still clear! My dear friend Jess got me some ‘Bio Oil’ to prevent stretching because she heard awesome things about it- so far so good!

Sleep? Sleeping well- I used to be a tummy sleeper so that was an adjustment, but no more soreness or mid-night bathroom breaks… weird?

Movement? Tons! And its visible from the outside- which Joey is mesmerized by… and a little freaked out sometimes.

Any cravings? Not really… I did eat far too many Hershey kisses this past weekend which made me feel sick. But darn, they were good. Oh, and I probably have one Arnold Palmer every single day. Almost.

Been feeling good? Yup! Feeling great- no nausea, energy is good, and been able to continue exercising. I had been comfortable jogging most days, but lately it’s been a little more uncomfortable so I have swapped jogging for power walking or the elliptical. I’m excited to try some prenatal yoga next Monday which is taught by one of my good friends! I’m hoping that will help with some of the low back pain I’ve been having… ouch.

Side note: SO many people in our community are pregnant right now, it’s amazing! Hopefully everyone is feeling well and getting enough rest. One thing that was a HUGE relief for me was switching out the regular prenatal horse-sized pills for the fruit-flavored gummy ones. I would try try try to keep those huge pills down every day, but either couldn’t keep them down, or just forgot  avoided taking them. Which made me feel like a horrible mom-before-I’m-a-mom. So my mom and I went to the store and found some gummy fruity prenatal pills and I look forward to taking them every day! They aren’t quite as nutrient packed as the horse pills, but something is better than nothing- And I try to take one of the nasty ones at least once a week. Worked for me, hope it helps someone else who may be struggling with the pranatals.

Nursery update!

A working progress! We got most of our furniture, just have to assemble the crib. And I just love how it looks- and by the way, we didn’t end up painting gray- we went neutral with ‘Fig Cookie’ tan… and now I’m wondering what a fig cookie would taste like…

So that’s what’s up over here- 10 weeks to go!!!

See ya soon, my babe.

    You look fantastic!! Congratulations on 30 weeks! 😀 We are planning to NOT find out the gender if we have another baby someday (we are ttc currently), but we did find out with the last 3, so we’ll see how that works! 😉

      Monica, I’m going to be one of those wierd poeple who tells you what you’re having. This profile pic of your tummy makes me think you’re having a boy. I’m no pro, but I think usually people’s boy bellies sit lower, which is what I see in this pic! Fun to guess… I remember having so much fun guessing with Danielle!

      • Not weird at all! I love it when I hear guesses! I have heard the same thing about lower-sitting bellies… and this definitely feels like it’s sitting low 🙂 I can’t get it out of my head that we might be having a boy, but a girl seems more natural. Ahh! And I didn’t know you didn’t find out with Danielle, how fun!!
