Week 30 Bumpdate

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM




How Many Weeks: 30!! Only 9 more to go (8 weeks and 2 days to be exact!)! I'm going to induced at 39 weeks since I'm at high risk for preeclampsia so lucky for me that means even closer till we meet our little man!

Size of Baby: around 3 lbs and 17 inches long. Size of a butternut squash.

Gender: BOY!

Movement: In the past few days the movements have been so much stronger. I can feel where he's sitting a lot of times and when he's moving around in my belly. When he stretches out I can see my whole stomach lift. The other day I had my purse on my lap and he kicked it! They aren't kidding when they say baby boys have strong kicks!  I'll still feel kicks in my butt sometimes and I finally asked my doctor what the hell is going on?! And she said he's kicking the back of my uterus. It feels so weird, I'm used to it now but it's still odd. He's still either laying breech or transverse because I either feel movements on my right side or down. Never in my ribs like most women complain about. He needs to start making his head down south is all I know!!

Sleep: I get up to pee a lot more now, if that's even possible! I'm also waking up pretty much every night around 4 am with my mind racing. It really sucks when you have to be up at 6 am! I find I'm a lot more tired during the day now and I'm sure that's why.

Maternity Clothes: Well unfortunately those are starting to get too tight! All I really wear are dresses because shorts cut into my stomach too much. 

Weight Gain: I've hit the 20 lb mark! 

Symptoms: Starting to get tired again during the day, I'm sure the 20 extra lbs I'm carrying around has something to do with it. Get short of breath when walking up the stairs. Congested nose all the time. Overall I feel great still, no swelling at all, but this extra weight and how fast the baby is growing now, they say 1/2 lb a week! is starting to take it's toll on my body.

Cravings/Aversions: Oh just sweets like usual. Carbs, chocolate, ice cream, anything sweet. No aversions.

Missing Most: Sleeping on my stomach! Sleeping on my left side every.single.night is getting really old and it makes my back hurt sometimes. 

Nursery: We've got so much done! The crib is put together, the dresser is finished. I got the prints to hang on the wall which I'm so excited about!


Hubby: Still super helpful around the house. I think he's ready to have this nursery done and luckily it almost is! 

Best Part of the Week: Feeling the baby move so much more and stronger has been wonderful. I tend to freak out mentally if I haven't felt him in like an hour. Getting my induction date is so exciting! Although I had a girl at work (there's 6 of us pregnant at work by the way) who went into labor at 36 weeks and 6 days so it really made me realize this boy could be here sooner!
