30 Weeks

Yay for the 30's...I feel like I'm finally in the home stretch!
Size of Baby: According to Baby Center, about the size of a head of cabbage...around 15.7 inches long and almost 3 pounds!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Little bit of a jump this week. :) Up around 15 pounds from pre-pregnancy.

Maternity Clothes: All maternity, all the time...except for pajamas, which are mostly Noah's t-shirts and a few select pairs of pajama pants.  Jeans have been GREAT for the past couple of weeks!

Gender: It's a GIRL!  Emma Ramey

Belly Button In/Out: It is this close to being out!

Stretch Marks: None!  Still using the lotion (at least trying to) every day.  And I just noticed this literally right before I sat down to do this post - I have "the line" below my belly button!  It's still really light, but it's there.

Movement: My belly almost looks like the ocean at times...very wavy. :) She's back to moving around the most late afternoon and through the night.  Still continues to try to stick random body parts out of my stomach too!

Sleep: Really not too bad this week...just getting comfortable is hard.

What I miss: Not worrying about every little thing I eat/do...it's so worth it, but I'm ready for that to be over!

What I am looking forward to: National championship this weekend!

Cravings/Aversions: Still some sweets, still not able to eat as much.

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, shortness of breath, and my back/hips have been very achy this week...I'm sure the extra weight is just catching up to them.  I can usually only get comfortable if I'm laying in bed.  And starting to get VERY tired again!

Best Moment This Week: Getting a good chunk of my sub plans done...I've been dreading that!
