30 Weeks

Our first ever pig tails!

 She wasn't a fan... but still- we have managed pig tails!
How far along? 30 weeks  (Baby's the length of a cucumber or about 2 1/2 lbs - 3 1/2 lbs).

 Total weight gain:  15 lbs

Maternity clothes? Yes.

Stretch marks? Yes.. on my hip. Boo!

Sleep: Decent. I only wake up to go to the bathroom once and this week so far I can go straight back to sleep.

Miss Anything? My second trimester energy and being comfortable all day.

Movement: She's active. :)

Food cravings: Watermelon and iced caramel machiatos from Starbucks...

Gender: It's a girl.
Labor Signs: No.

Symptoms: Tender left inner thigh. I can barely walk for the first ten minutes or so of my walks lately... But it works itself out.

And... serious Braxton Hicks. I've now gotten more fatigued and I am definitely slowing down... My productivity level has now been cut in half. It seems like this last weekend (29 weeks) really marked a huge change. I'm tired all of the time!

Also, a sensitive nerve area about the size of a lemon on my lower left stomach.

Belly Button in or out? Out.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Exercise: Walking 2 miles almost every day, yoga almost every day and cardio and toning three times a week.

Third trimester mileage to date: 20 miles

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!

Highlight of the week: This is not baby related, but today Claire was playing and I was listening to music while trying to get some things done. "Somewhere beyond the sea" came on and I started to dance animatedly. Claire ran to me and instead of grabbing my hands and dancing "with" me she held her hands up. I picked her up and she cuddled into me as I danced.

Looking forward to: Not having constant braxton hicks contractions... sleeping on my back etc. and having energy for sure.

She is growing so much! Love the piggytails! And congrats to you guys for your new baby blessing coming soon!

I just read the book, "Kisses From Katie" by Katie Davis. I'm sure you've read it but after reading it I realized that must be near the same area you and Jacob were.

Thanks so much Merissa! We stayed in that city/town a lot when we came down for vacation and I think she does a bit of outreach to the people who come down from where we were. I always hear great things about Katie!
Thanks for the kind words! :)
