How Far Along: 30 Weeks
Size of Baby: He is the size of a squash
Average size: 15.2-16.7 inches, 2.5-3.8 lb. He was estimated at 3.3 pounds on our 30 week ultrasound.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I don't know and I don't want to know... Bottom line: I'm big!
Maternity Clothes: All of my clothes are now maternity.
Best Moment this week: Getting to see him again on ultrasound. It really is amazing to see God's amazing creation forming right in front of us.
Movement: Yes. All the time. He's an active baby, which is so reassuring and yet painful at times, since he seems to kick and punch a little harder than he used to. I've also began to notice him having the hiccups, which is a weird feeling! Daddy also felt him move for the first time, which I was so excited about!
Food Craving: Still no real cravings. Eating is not so much fun right now since I don't seem to have a lot of room. I'll eat half of a meal and then can't breathe for the next 3 hours because I'm so uncomfortable.
What I miss: Sleep
Sleep: I do not sleep well and am slowly resigning myself to the truth that I probably won't sleep well for the next 18 years!
What I am looking forward to: There's not much going on this week, just trying to get more stuff organized for the nursery.
Belly Button: In
Symptoms: Definitely having more back pain these days. I also have a general mild swelling of my feet now as well.
Time is flying by and I admit I get a little freaked out seeing how few days we have left. Especially knowing that he could come anytime after the next 6 or 7 weeks. It's a little scary! I can't wait to meet him and see what he looks like and find out if his personality matches the one that we're seeing now when he's inside of me.
Here is a picture from his most recent ultrasound. I'm a little biased, but I think he's adorable! I think he has his daddy's profile.
