Week 30 Bumpdate

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Week: 30 - She's the size of a Cantaloupe

Total Weight Gain: 17 pounds - stayed the same from last week :)

Symptoms: Feeling more and more pregnant by the week . . . which is to be expected I suppose. I'm noticing more round ligament pain on my daily walks, more hip pain at night and definitely more heartburn throughout the day. Overall besides feeling like I get tired much more easily and like things are getting more difficult to do (like roll over in bed or tie my shoes) I am feeling pretty good!

Cravings: Still really craving sweets, but trying to hold off as much as possible. But Sunday night Dan and I spent the afternoon and evening in the kitchen cooking dinner and baking together. He made cinnamon rolls for the station and I made a carrot cake to celebrate 2 years of blogging.

Sleep: Having more trouble sleeping this week mostly because I'm struggling to get comfortable and stay comfortable all night long. I wake up halfway through the nights and my hips and back will be really hurting. I am trying out the snoogle pillow again to see if creating more of a nest to sleep in helps!

Clothes: Definitely all maternity. We've been having hot weather and it's supposed to get even warmer this week, so anything that will help me stay cool is what I've been wearing!

Workout: I hit my Fitbit steps goal 5 out of 7 days this week, but gave myself the weekend off after being so active all week and I think I really needed that break. Trying to remind myself to be active but also give my body a break when it's asking for it. My competitive nature sets in when I see how many steps other friends have done, and I need to keep reminding myself of the fact that I'm 30 weeks pregnant and getting 4-5 miles in a day is more than enough!

Nursery: We started going through some of the clothes we've gotten so far and washing them this weekend. We also bought some dresser drawer organizers to help organize it all. I can't wait for her first shower this weekend to be able to get even more stuff crossed off our to do list!

Movement: Tons this week! I feel like as the weeks go on she's even busier in my tummy! I'm starting to be able to watch my whole stomach move when she's moving and even Dan's able to watch. I love feeling her moving, but it is definitely getting more uncomfortable . . . especially the kicks to the ribs!

Best Moment This Week: Spending an afternoon at The Allison spa for a couples massage with Dan. It was so nice to get their Mother-To-Be Massage and have some time to just relax and chat uninterrupted with Dan.

Missing: Being able to sleep through the night comfortably and not feeling overheated all the time!
