This baby is coming SOON! Childbirth class is over. Now it’s time to decide if we want to take the Infant Care class. I’m thinking yes… I mean, what do we really know about bringing a baby home?! I’m officially on vacation until January 2 and I am very excited to spend time with Than and my parents, get things ready for baby, celebrate Christmas, rest, etc! Here’s what things look like at 30 weeks…
How far along? 30 Weeks
Total weight gain: 9 lbs. (I have a feeling I’m going to want to remove this question pretty soon… Baby now gains 1/2 a pound per week!)
Maternity clothes? Yep! Loving the maternity yoga pants. SO comfy.
Sleep: Much better than last week!
Best moment this week: More fun packages in the mail for baby girl and mom
Miss Anything? I miss being able to roll over and move easily while I’m sleeping. It’s not too bad yet but if I roll too quickly I definitely feel it.
Movement: Her movements continue to get stronger – sometimes they startle me and make me jump!
Food cravings: Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches, Ritz Crackers (sometimes with cheese), and I’m excited for Christmas treats like sugar cookies and caramel corn this week!
Anything making you queasy or sick: A little queasiness on and off but not bad.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, still showing. Popping out noticeably more as opposed to just growing this week.
Labor Signs: None yet.
Belly Button in or out? Holding steady – in.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy – and even happier now that I’m on vacation!
Looking forward to: I guess I already covered this at the beginning but there’s plenty I’m looking forward to at the moment so I’ll add more. I am very excited to get everything ready for baby’s arrival and I can’t wait to see what she looks like and what her personality is like. I think she’s shy because when she’s moving and we touch my belly she usually stops. She’s either shy or a little stubborn – haha.
How far along? 30 weeks.
Total weight gain: We held steady this week again.
Maternity clothes? Yep, and still enjoying them. I’ve never seen her enjoy certain clothes so much before.
Sleep: Well, apparently a Snoogle helps; and I’ve been on the losing end of hugs in the night as a result. Not sure how I feel about that… As long as she sleeps well, I guess.
Best moment this week: Hearing that a Chick-fil-A finally opened in Pasadena… Oh wait, this is supposed to be about the baby… Well, she’ll definitely benefit from it opening.
Miss Anything? No. With my pre-bed relaxation massages, what is there to miss?
Movement: Yep, lots of it! I love all the fist bumps!
Food cravings: Well we bought a ton of bananas this week and it wasn’t at the top of MY list.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No.
Have you started to show yet: Yes. It seems she’s really “popped” this week.
Gender: Still a girl. And since Ru added a question last week, I’m going to remove this one starting next week…
Labor Signs: No, but thanks to birthing class this week I know how to help her through them.
Belly Button in or out? Still in.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy. Again, pre-bed relaxation massages….
Looking forward to: Grandpa and Grandma Northcutt seeing and feeling the baby move. I just hope I don’t let the name slip; I’ve come really close twice already…
