I am 30 weeks pregnant today!
With Elizabeth, I did a weekly update on how the pregnancy was going. However, for this pregnancy I have been really busy with work and chasing around Elizabeth that I decided to blog about the "big milestones" of pregnancy instead of doing a weekly update.
So here are a few updates:
How far along: 30 weeks
Gender: We are having a girl!!!
Size of baby: Baby sister is the size of a cucumber. She is between 15.2 and 16.7 inches long. She weighs somewhere between 2.5 and 3.8 pounds.
Total weight gain/loss: Weight gain is 26 pounds (with Elizabeth, I had gained 21 pounds at this point)
Maternity Clothes: I wear mostly maternity clothes now. I have two pairs of athletic shorts that still fit and my t-shirts still fit. I wear Motherhood Maternity shorts and Ann Taylor Loft Maternity shirts.
Movement: Baby sister kicks and punches A LOT! She does not like it when I lay on my left side, she kicks and kicks until I roll over. I feel her a lot throughout the day and she is big enough for Elizabeth and Ben to see and feel her kick too.
Sleep: Sleep is good and bad, it depends on the day. Sometimes I sleep through the night, and sometimes I am up three or four times to go to the bathroom.
Cravings: I am back to eating a more of my regular diet. The only thing I can't stand is pizza. I would eat Twix candy bars all day if I could.
Symptoms: Tiredness. Heaviness. I feel pretty good in the mornings, but by 3-4pm I am kinda done for the day. I have to take an hour or so to lay down and put my feet up each afternoon (usually when Elizabeth naps).
Best moments of the week: Hearing baby sister's heart beat today. And, setting up baby sister's room. We have had the room painted this week, put up curtains and bedding. I have even started setting up her closet. We are almost ready!
Time left: About nine weeks.
Hope you are having a great week!
