30 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 30 weeks~ 10 more to go! In some ways it feels like it's most definitely been 30 weeks, but in other ways it's hard to believe. I thought the summer would make this pregnancy feel super long, but I'm hanging in okay so far.

Size of Baby: 15-16 inches long and about 3 pounds... about the size of squash. =)

Total Weight Gained/Lost: I've gained 16 lbs so far, but I have a doctor's appointment this week so I'm curious to see what I'm up to now.

Maternity Clothes: Definitely! (Even though the "bands" on my shorts make me sweat so I usually end up rolling/folding them down)

Gender: Baby Boy

Movement: Austin has become a little more active in the last week or so. I can tell he's bigger and stronger and he likes to move around now off and on throughout the day, not just at the predictable times he was.

Food Cravings: I really haven't had any true cravings lately. Ice cream always sounds good but I think that's because it's hot and I just really like ice cream. Other than that I just have a big appetite.

What I Miss: Sleeping soundly and being able to do things that require being on the floor or bending over without it taking so much effort and energy! (playing with Garrison, getting him dressed, cleaning, etc.)

Sleep: I'm sleeping okay except for waking up every time I want to roll over or change positions. I also got woken up the other night with a leg cramp. Not fun. Thankfully it didn't last long. I remember having those pretty regularly with Garrison so I'm sure I can look forward to more.

Symptons: Lately my legs and feet have started aching by the end of the day. Some days it's just annoying and some days it's really uncomfortable and I have to stop what I'm doing and sit down. It's kind of crazy because I don't remember that with Garrison and that's when I was teaching all day. Maybe I really am on my feet now more than I realize... or maybe it's just something to do with the 2nd pregnancy. I've also noticed some slight swelling around my ankles a couple of days. Other than that, nothing major.

Best Moment This Week: Time with my two guys and both Terrell and Garrison being able to feel Austin move. At least I think Garrison felt him move. He wasn't that impressed so I can't be sure. Ha!

What I'm Looking Forward To: Giving our guest bathroom/Garrison and Austin's bathroom a makeover. I think it's going to be cute. =)

This is a picture that somehow got left out of my vacation posts... and since this blog is our family photo album, I had to include it~
