Pregnancy Update: 30 weeks

How Far Along:  30 weeks - holy cow he will be here so soon!

Total Weight Gain: I weighed in at a whopping 147.6!  I still cannot get over that I weigh this much, but so lucky it's all in my belly.......and boobs.....

Maternity Clothes:  Everything has made my belly itch this week so I've been opting more for low rise pants (thanks rubberband for keeping them closed) and flowy tops.

Stretch Marks:  Still none that I can tell.

Sleep:  I've been ready for bed by 7 every night this week.  The first trimester exhaustion has come back with a vengeance.  I can barely keep my eyes open while I'm at work.  I miss naps.
Best Moment This Week:  Well, this week I actually had the energy to cook supper.  Such a small thing, but it's huge.  Aside from my gag reflex, I haven't felt much like cooking because it takes energy.  Then, cleaning it up also takes energy.  Much more energy than I have to give.

Miss Anything:  Being able to sit comfortably.  Sitting/laying in the floor used to be the most comfortable and relaxing thing for me.  Now, I can't even get down into the floor/back up without it killing my lower back...and I also need something to help get me up. 

Movement:  He's starting to move more during the day, but still not as much as at night when I get home.  The doctor said that if he isn't moving at least 10 times in his "busiest" 2 hours, I need to go to the hospital immediately.  Luckily, he gets those 10 moves in within like, 30 seconds of counting.  I'm thankful he moves so much so I know he's doing alright in there.

Food Cravings:  Breakfast foods this week.  Lots of breakfast foods.

Anything Making You Queasy or Sick:  Again with chicken.  I cannot believe the one meat I eat on a normal basis is what makes me the queasiest.

Gender:  A boy.  I made the mistake of reading a blog article about a woman who was told she was having a girl, then at her next ultrasound found out it was really a boy.  Since we don't get any more ultrasounds, I'm terrified this will happen to us!

Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks.  Not as much this week.  Maybe because I've been so thirsty.  Lots of water is supposed to help keep them at bay.

Belly Button In/Out:  I think it's all the way out.  Adam found out that when I laugh hard it goes in and out, kind of bounching up and now it's his goal to make me laugh anytime he can see my belly button.

Wedding Rings On/Off: On.  I haven't had a lot of issues with swelling.  My ankles get slightly puffy, but my hands haven't really.

Happy or Moody:  Still moody this week.  Everything annoys me.

Looking Forward To:  Still counting down the day until the construction resumes on our house.  I can't wait to have a clean house.
