Bumpdate #8: 30 Weeks
Baby is about the size of a cucumber!
Total weight gain: About 19 pounds
Maternity Clothes: Regular shirts are a little too short now. I've started wearing my husband's shirts and sweatshirts and I finally ordered a couple maternity shirts and a dress. I'm pretty much wearing a tee shirt, leggings or skinny jeans, and a cardigan or open button down every day. It's become my pregnancy uniform. Pullover sweaters look way too bulky now.
Stretch marks: Palmer's Cocoa Butter and Honest Company Belly Balm. No stretch marks!
Belly button: I think it's an outie now. It's definitely not an innie. It feels like it's missing.
Wedding ring: On
Movement: The baby was moving so much the other night I hardly got any sleep! He/she is getting stronger every day and has started kicking other babies when I hold them (the kid has already made another baby cry because he/she kicked him when I was holding him!) and books when I rest them on my tummy. When I rest my hand on my bump the baby kicks it but when Sam rests his hands on the bump it calms the baby down.
Sleep: Mostly great except for the one night of very little sleep due to kicking. We go to bed early and sleep a lot of every night. I'm soaking up all the sleep I can get right now.
Cravings: Oreos and coffee ice cream.
Last doctor appointment: We had an appointment with our midwife on Tuesday. Everything is looking great. I had my glucose screening test and everything is normal there.
Feeling: A little more tired and more third trimester-y. Hips are occasionally sore. We are getting so excited to meet our baby! It's starting to feel more and more real.
Missing anything: Skiing, as always
