30 Weeks!!

How far along: 30 weeks! 

Due Date: Jan. 31, 2014 

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Too much. Oh well.  

Maternity clothes: I've been in maternity clothes since 6-7 weeks

Stretch marks: I got a few during my second pregnancy but haven't gotten any more with this one.

Sleep: Great! I've been sleeping like a rock all night and usually take a long nap with C every afternoon. 

Symptoms: Tired, achy, hormonal, emotional and the heartburn has kicked in. I think my ankles are starting to swell a bit too. But overall I'm doing great! 

Food cravings: Nothing

Food aversions: None really 

Labor signs: Nothing

Belly button - in or out? Neither, really.  

What I miss: Not much 

What I am looking forward to: The day the baby is born! I can't wait to meet him or her and find out what we are having! 

Movement: I feel the baby several times a day. I think he or she is starting to run out of room. The baby puts his or her feet (I think it must be the feet) up under my ribs ALL the time. 

Milestones: Reaching 30 weeks! The baby should be here in 10 weeks or less!  

How big is baby: (According to Baby Center)Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now and weighs almost 3 pounds (about the size of a large cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds him or her, but that volume will shrink as he or she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. His or her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after he or she is born, he or she will keep his or her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When he or  she does open them, he or she will respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means he or she can only make out objects a few inches from his or her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

Gender: We won't find out until the baby is born. 

Names: Not positive on a first name for a boy but the middle name has been decided. If we have a girl she will have 2 middle names. I'm pretty sure we're set on the first name and first middle name. I'm not sure on a second middle name. 

Best moment(s) last week: Feeling the baby move around is always the best! I also have great appointment yesterday and actually made it through my glucose test without getting sick this time.
