Week 30: Squash

"Baby’s energy is surging, thanks to the formation of white fat deposits beneath the skin. (Have those kicks and jabs to the ribs tipped you off yet?) Baby is also settling into sleep and waking cycles, though -- as you’ve also probably noticed -- they don’t necessarily coincide with your own. Also this month, all five senses are finally functional, and the brain and nervous system are going through major developments."

How far along? 30wks & 6 days!

Maternity clothes? Full time maternity clothes but I can still fit into a few non-maternity (stretchy) things.

Stretch marks? No stretch marks and I'm applying Earth Mama Angel Baby Lotion in the morning and Weleda Pregnancy Body Oil at night.

Sleep? What's that? I'm up and awake every morning at 5am...please don't make this a habit baby.

Best moment this week? Hearing that all is well (my bp has been consistently perfect and my blood test came back normal) at my midwife appt on Thursday...bring on the home birth!

Movement? I could watch my stomach all day - it is so strange to think that my baby boy is inside of my right now!!

Food cravings? I could go for some ice cream but I'm being good.

Gender? It's a Boy!!

Labor signs? Nope.

What I miss? Sleeping on my right side (I can't lay on it for more than a minute now without it hurting).

What I'm looking forward to? Finishing up our never ending nursery!!!!!!

Weekly Wisdom: Swimming has to be the best invention ever for a pregnant lady!

Milestones: I'll be in the single digits tomorrow - 9 ish more weeks to go!

Emotions: I'm making a conscious effort to not get stressed out - it just isn't worth it.

30 weeks & 6 days pregnant
