Week 30 Pregnancy Photo
How far along am I?
How big is the baby?
The size of a cucumber.
How much weight have I gained?
Pre-pregnancy weight: 130lbs Current weight: 146 lbs
I’ve gained a total of 16lbs so far.
*I will update after every doctor’s appointment as their scale is more accurate than the one at home.
Doctor’s Appointment Update
The doctor’s appointment was great. My belly is measuring 30cm which is right on target and baby’s heart rate is in the 160’s. The midwife said that I’m doing great as far as my weight gain and whatnot goes. We talked a little about what kind of birth control I would want to take after the baby is born and I think I will take the mini pill. Pills worked fine for me before so I’ll stick to the pill. We also talked a little about maternity leave and the symptoms I was having. All the symptoms I’m having is normal. No issues were found.
I have a couple of pairs of maternity jeans, leggings, and shirts. My regular jeans are much too tight to wear at this point, but I can still wear some of my shirts with no problem. I tried on some of my dress pants yesterday and I couldn’t even button them up…not even the ones that I have that are a little bigger than the size that I wear that someone gave me. The struggle!
None yet. I’m using cocoa butter and lotion to help prevent.
Tons! She’s really busting a move in there. I felt her having hiccups the other day.
How am I sleeping?
Less sleep…still uncomfortable…husband is snoozing away! He is totally unbothered haha.
My best moment this week
Going to visit fam for the weekend.
Do I miss anything?
Not being tired! I always want to take a nap at times when I really can’t. Waaah.
Belly button in or out?
Slowly making it’s way out…I think it’s almost ready to POP!
Wedding ring on or off?
Still on…for now. Rings are getting a little tight now. I may have to take them very soon. When I do, I think I’ll wear the rings on my necklace.
Nothing really this week.
What am I eating?
I’m eating pretty much the same things, but trying to add in more fruits, veggies, and fiber! I’ve been doing better with my water.
How do I feel? Symptoms?
Tired. Tired. Tired. Tired. Did I say tired? Braxton hicks. Shortness of breath. I had to sit down and drink some water the other day from walking around the mall. Dry skin…my face can get pretty dry and now my hands are getting REALLY dry. Back aching even more now. Blurred vision from time to time…it’s kind of weird. It’s getting harder to bend down…I put on my shoes by sitting on the bed now. I also struggle with sitting up in the bed or getting out of it when I’m laying down…the struggle is real.
Have I started to show yet:
Definitely. Everyone can tell now!
Am I happy or moody most of the time?
What am I looking forward to?
The baby shower on March 22nd!
