how far along: 30 weeks! 70 more days!! What! What! How in the world do I have between 6-10 weeks left?!?!?!
baby's size: She is anywhere from 15-17 inches and anywhere from 3 to almost 4 pounds.
baby's progress: Baby girl is now strong enough to grip a finger (I cannot wait for these moments!!). Her skin is smoothing out and her brain is actually becoming wrinklier in order to for all the essential brain tissue aka to become a smarty-pants ;)
weight gain: I seem to be pretty steady and have gained anywhere from 27-30 pounds (depending on the day) and I am totally ok with that. But I am also totally ok with the weight to come off asap and get back into my pre-preggo shape. According to some people my face has filled out and become round... Yea, let's just say that is a perfect way to make a preggo feel like a million bucks! #not!!!
sleep:Zilch!! Sleep has literally gone out the door and down the toilet this past few weeks and keeps getting worse. I swear Monday night, I had the worst night's sleep I've had this entire pregnancy. My outer thigh/upper hip area hurt so badly, I just wanted to cry. There was nothing I could do to take the pain away. I woke up at 3am, and never went back to sleep. Any recommendations to ease this pain. No amount of pillows is working....
gender: A little mini me ;)
movement: Constantly. Truthfully it is the most incredible feeling ever!!
best moment this week: Getting our baby shower invite!!! Kind of surreal. But totally exciting!!!
looking forward to: Getting the nursery ready for her big arrival, and just being settled into our new home.
what i miss: Bending over to pick things up off the floor // Wearing jeans // Deli sandwiches // Alcohol (keepin' it real) // Intense exercise
symptoms: Everyone and anyone is telling me I am carrying her really low. Yes, I realize that... My thought is it's do to the fact that I have a long torso, but who knows and honestly it doesn't matter to me how low or high I carry her as long as she is comfy, cozy, and healthy :)
