Weekly Update: 30 weeks

Okay so I am being super brave and posting me in a bathing suit as my bump picture. I will take my normal one tonight but I am afraid I will forget until too late and not get to it until tomorrow late. Funny story, that bathing suit is my moms and she is super jealous that it looks that cute on me.

How far along: 30 weeks (3/4 of the way through)

Total weight gain/loss: Still on break and on vacation

Maternity clothes: I got the clothes from my cousin this week. I had not bought any maternity pants but after wearing some of her hand me downs all day yesterday, I have no idea why I waited so long. They are so comfy!

Stretch marks: Still none

Sleep: I was really stressed last week trying to get ready for our trip so I barely slept but when I do, I am fine. I just have to get up and use the bathroom at least once.

Best moment this week: Getting the nursery almost done. Something less to worry about.

Movement: He is still pretty good. He got really excited while I was in the pool playing with my cousins. I really want some people to feel him move but it is never consistent enough for me to tell someone to try.

Food cravings: No cravings really but I have been super good and been eating lots of fruits.

Food aversions: Nothing really

Gender: Boy!

Labor Signs: He has 7 more week at least until these are acceptable

Belly Button in or out? Nothing new here

What I miss: Well being at the beach, I kind of miss being able to be in normal clothes and not feeling like a whale next to all the other women. A couple sarcastic cracks have been made about how I need to watch my weight. Haha, so funny, pick on the pregnant girl.

What I am looking forward to: After this trip (which will be devastating when it is over), I am excited for our maternity pictures in a couple of weeks and showers after that.

Weekly Wisdom: This question is always hard for me. I think for this week, being around so many family members, it reminds me of all the different traits that he can have. I also love talking about other family members experiences. Sometimes they think they are scaring me with stories but it never does. I love hearing everyone’s funny stories.

Milestones: Being at 30 weeks is pretty amazing. It seems like yesterday I was 20 weeks and if I measure how fast those 10 weeks went, after the next 10, he should be here. ¾ down!

Measurements: We forgot a measuring tape, so I guess we are taking a break this week.

Nursery Update

-crib skirt is completely done and on
-crib mattress is in place
- I made a cover for the lamp cord from the lanterns overhead
-Mom brought the last bird, 2 pillows and quilt for his room. They are gorgeous!

I am still just waiting for the item for his wall to be able to hang the pictures and officially say it is done. This is nice having this off my list so I can focus on some of the other things on my to-do list.

I will be posting a vacation update at some point but I am not sure if it will be this week or I will start them next week when we get back.
