How far along? 30 Weeks
Total weight gain: 6 lbs.
Maternity clothes: I have really resorted to tights. And it just so happens to be the perfect time of year for long sweaters, tights, and boots. Having fun with the fashion.
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: This trimester has officially been the hardest. I am very uncomfortable sleeping on my stomach and find it hard to sleep any other way. I have also been the most tired these past couple of weeks, which makes sleep imperative. I can feel her moving around when I am on my tummy which I really am not a fan of. It’s almost like it mentally messes wth me. Like I’m smooshing her. So I’ve found this way to slightly turn my body allowing the ability to not fully be on my stomach.
Best moment of this week: We got all of our Christmas shopping done. Also, thanksgiving was the best day ever. We went to my moms at 1pm and were there until 530pm. Then went to joes parents. It was just a special day to be with family all day. Lots of laughter and love. Each prayer included baby avery and welcoming her to the family.
Miss anything: I miss not being able to sleep comfortably. I miss not having heart burn! I have heart burn all the time now. My ankles are frequently swollen. My skin is not as glowing as it once was. She is sucking the life out of me in this trimester.
Movement: still lots of movement. She really is active at night when I’m just laying there on the couch.
Food cravings: Orange juice. Cinnamon raisin toast with peanut butter. Chocolate milk.
Anything making you queasy or sick: thinking of labor / delivery.
Have you started to show yet: Yes. Though, my last ultrasound revealed my belly measurement is not where it needs to be. I should be measuring the cm equivalent to how far along I am in pregnancy. I should be measuring 30 cm but only measuring 25 cm. so they had to order an ultrasound. She is measuring just fine and considered in 60 percentile. I do have a long torso so she may just be sitting a certain way.
Gender: Little baby girl.
Labor signs: Just lots of cramps after exercise, but nothing too crazy. Apparently that is just her growing.
Belly button in or out: Belly button is starting to come out. Not all the way there yet, but close.
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Tired, sick feeling lately.
Looking forward to: getting bigger. I am still not showing that much and I want to be!! And heart burn subsiding even just a tad bit.
I also had to get a root canal this week which was terrible!!! Not only am I already feeling slightly sick…I can’t sleep…I have terrible heart burn…but now I have to get a root canal. And this root canal was different. The tooth was so infected that the tooth was mobile. The dentist could not do the procedure in one sitting. It has been rough. I want to be back to normal health and baby to be normal size.
