How far along? 30 weeks … can’t believe I’m already in the ‘thirties’!
Baby Size & Stats: A squash, about 3 pounds
How am I feeling? Tired, but good! I had some pretty bad fatigue this week. I also had lots of cramping/contractions yesterday so spent a lot of time trying to lie down. I’ve had some acid reflux lately, too. I feel sorry for people that deal with heartburn regularly! It’s no fun. Tums have been my best friend. I also have low back pain if I do anything active during the day. I bought a back support thing, so hopefully that helps! Other than the fatigue and cramping, I’m feeling pretty darn good!
Food/Cravings: No cravings anymore…my diet is pretty normal.
Weight: 21.8 pounds
Maternity clothes? Love my stretchy clothes and pants with the belly panel
Sleep: Knock on wood, sleep is still going well!
Miss Anything? Being able to be active all day long without cramping or back pain. And it’s going to be in the 50s and 60s the next 10 days so I am really sad I can’t enjoy some spring outdoor runs right now! Hopefully we have a mild summer so I can run a lot after giving birth
Movement: He moves CONSTANTLY. It’s so wonderful. I think his movement sometimes causing my cramping/contractions, as well. He seemed to shift into a head down position yesterday so maybe he will stay there until he’s born!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Have you started to show yet: Yep.
Gender: Sweet baby boy.
Labor Signs: I think the proper term is ‘false labor’ for all the cramping/contractions I have been experiencing. Let’s just hope the real labor holds off for at least several more weeks.
Workouts: I was awesome this week! Several lifting sessions and several cardio sessions! I worked out every day but one. Here’s a comparison shot of me in my workout gear between 25 and 29 weeks. The belly has definitely grown!
Mood? Pretty good. If I really start to think of all the things we have to do before baby comes, I start to get a little overwhelmed. But I know it’ll get done. We’ve made tons of progress in the nursery lately, which I need to share.
Best moment this week: My hubby got a great promotion at work! It has been in the works for awhile and was finally confirmed/finalized this week. We’re going out to celebrate this weekend and I can’t wait! And his raise will be perfect timing to start saving for preparing for massive daycare costs…haha. (Beer is for him, not me. But I would have lovedddddd one!)
Looking forward to: Warm weather and my showers in a couple of weeks!! So excited to see everyone and celebrate this little boy!! <3
