I broke into the 30's!! Maggie's due date is getting so close!
How far along: 30 weeks!
Size of Baby: 15.7 in & 2.75 lb
Fruit/vegetable comparison: Cabbage
Total weight gain: 20 pounds (Christmas weight caught up with me.)
Sleep: This has been good and bad. This past weekend we stayed at my mom's and it was probably the worst two nights of sleep I've had in awhile. I think at this point if I'm not in my own bed I'm not going to be able to get any rest. The last two nights have been almost heaven. I started drinking peppermint tea right before bed, and I've slept through the night besides one bathroom break! Not sure if it's a coincidence but I'm going to keep drinking it and let you know. Holla!
Movement: She's been pretty active this week. The best is when I go to see movies, she goes crazy! I guess because of all the loud noises. This past weekend we went to see Les Miserables with some friends and she kicked & moved around through the entire (almost 3 hour) movie. Ryan & I were almost too distracted by Maggie to actually pay attention to the movie. But the it was so good that I still came out crying. It's a must see!
Unglamorous body changes: The heartburn has been better since I started drinking the peppermint tea, but it's only been two days. Ha! I tweaked my lower back this weekend and it's been pretty sore but getting better. I think I just over did it with our busy weekend.
Food cravings: Still lots of sweets. I realized that I don't really crave candy but more baked goods kind of sweets. I'm also really loving strawberry flavored anything.
What I miss: Not too much but probably having my full energy back.
Milestones: Her skin is getting smoother. But her brain is getting wrinklier -- to make way for all that essential brain tissue. She's now strong enough to grasp a finger! (thebump.com)
Best moment this week: So many!! Feeling Maggie go nuts at the Les Miserables movie, the incredible baby shower thrown by my in-laws and our maternity shoot this past Sunday (even though it was freezing!). But probably the best moment was my best friend, Kara, having her baby TODAY at 1:30 am this morning!! I can NOT wait to meet little Greta Mae. So excited for them.
Looking forward to: My SIL, Emily, & Sean visiting this weekend, and I have a small friends shower on Sunday here in Bartlesville. I'm also looking forward to slowing down. I think I've definitely been over doing it, and I've started to cancel things because I am just completely worn out. Ryan & I started to realize that we have a limited amount of weekends left before our lives change forever. It's so crazy to think we may only have a few free weekends before Maggie comes. I'll be considered full term in just 7 weeks. 7 WEEKS! Even though I have a feeling I'll be late. Still so much to get done before she gets here!
