30 Weeks 3 Days Update/Quiz

How far along: 30 weeks 3 days
Symptoms: Heartburn, frequent potty trips, stretch marks, tiredness, lots of baby movement

Total weight gain: 16 lbs as of my last OB appointment. Next appointment is Thursday.

Maternity clothes: I'm loving my dresses. Okay, so half of them aren't maternity, they still work and I love them, especially my long ones.

Stretch marks: My stretch marks are having babies of their own. They multiply like bunnies. But it's only below my belly button and all in a line. I use my cocoa butter, but those darn stretch marks have no shame. They keep multiplying!

Sleep: Although I am still sleeping through most of the night, I am getting up before the alarm for a potty trip. So I know those "up all night because of potty trips" days are coming back. Lately, the new thing to wake me up at night is when I roll over. I'll roll over to my other side and this child of mine kicks me so hard because I woke her up. This happens EVERY night, EVERY time I change sides.
Best moment this week: Baby Girl kicked my Sister-in-Law in the head last Friday. It took some poking and prodding to get her riled up, but sure enough, she got moving and WHAM! She kicked O. right in the head. O. loved it.

Movement: Tons. I'm now thinking she's training already to be an Olympic star.

Food cravings: Salads, fruit, and cereal (not just any cereal. Multigrain Cheerios with fresh banana slices!). Yum!

Belly Button in or out: It's still an inny, but it's getting more and more shallow. I think it will eventually just be flat like a pancake. It feels SO strange, though. So maybe it will pop out, we'll see.

What I miss: Being able to paint my own toe nails. I can't really reach to do that.

What I am looking forward to: Thursday's OB appointment. They never called me after my glucose test, so I'm hoping the results are good. We'll see....
Milestones: Entering the home stretch-I'm 30 weeks plus a few days! YAY!
How is daddy? I think he's still a little nervous. But he's excited, too. He's just realizing all the things we still need to do, like get the nursery ready. There's a lot of work that needs to be done in there, but we're still waiting for the crib.

How are the grandparents? They are still so excited. I was hoping Hubby's mom could come up for the 3D/4D ultrasound, but that won't work now, since we have to reschedule. I need to get on that and get one scheduled, since we are looking to do it next Monday now. But the grandparents are super excited and overjoyed.

Here's the latest pictures: 


  1. I love her name! On my glucose test, the doc said no news was good news, so hopefully that is how they operate too! Yay 30!

  2. My baby does the same thing when i roll over at night...silly! Super cute pics! Love that round belly!!

  3. OMG, just a few days behind you and had a similar occurance with the little girl the other night. Rolled over while I was asleep and she kicked me SO hard - I must have disturbed her sleep. Haha!
