How far along? 30 weeks
Baby Size: Varies at this point, but somewhere around 3 pounds or just over
Total weight gain: About 22 pounds
Maternity clothes? Pretty much exclusively. I am actually outgrowing some of my maternity shirts already, so I've had to go purchase a few more used from the Clothes Mentor.
Stretch Marks? Not yet
Sleep: Hit or miss, but my body pillow has been a life saver!
Best moment this week: My husband was poking at my stomach trying to get the baby to move and then all of a sudden the baby started kicking back like crazy. He/she is already feisty :)
Miss Anything? I think I'm just ready to get back to being more active
Movement: Baby is moving a lot, and has recently found my ribs, which he/she loves to flick with his/her foot. I have definitely slowed down lately, but still go to the gym a few times per week. Based on the frightened looks people sometimes give me there, I can tell they starting to worry I am going to give birth right there on an elliptical haha
Food cravings: Sweets!
Gender Prediction: We will find out when baby arrives! Make sure you vote in the green box on the right side of this blog.
Symptoms: Lots more aches and pains, and I am definitely starting to waddle a little
Labor Signs: Nothing yet
Mood: Happy. I am definitely enjoying feeling our little one moving. It's also been so exciting to see the nursery come together. And I'm very humbled and thankful for all the wonderful gifts we have received from our baby showers. We only have a few things left to get.
Looking forward to: Receiving our bedding, changing pad cover, boppy cover, and crib mobile, all of which were purchased and are being made by people on Etsy.
Our bedding will be a combination of these prints:
P is the crib sheet, I is the changing pad cover, B is the crib skirt, and the quilt is a combination of all
We also ordered this handmade mobile to decorate baby's room. This will hang from the ceiling above baby's crib (I thought about making one myself, but my frugal husband actually voted to buy it and save me all the work. My Operation Nesting list is still in the works, after all!)
Our handmade Boppy pillow cover is something I am really excited about!
Our nursery has white walls, so I am excited to spruce up the place with so many colored accents. After all these items arrive, I'll be ready to unveil the final result to you all:)
