How far along are you?: 30 weeks (has it really been 6 weeks since my last bump-date? Woops! Are you happy now, Mom? Hehe...)
How I'm feeling: I have been blessed with quite an easy pregnancy. With that being said, I have noticed some more aches and pains towards the end of the day. Also, I've started having sciatic nerve pain occasionally - no fun! Overall, I feel really lucky though.
How big is baby?: A butternut squash - over 3 lbs! Not sure what it changes to tomorrow.
Maternity clothes: Almost everything.
Stretch marks?: Not on the belly. I have some on my sides from gaining weight a while ago (pre-pregnancy) but I haven't noticed any new ones since becoming pregnant.
Sleep: Great! Sometimes I get up once a night but it's not all the time.
Best moment this week: The movement. Our little girl is so active and watching her and feeling her throw dance parties in my belly has by far been my favorite part of pregnancy!
Movement: So much. All day long and especially at night when I lay down and am relaxing.
Food cravings: Nothing really.
Food aversions: None.
Labor signs: I've been having Braxton Hicks contractions for a few weeks now. They aren't painful but it's so weird to feel and see my belly tighten up!
Belly button in or out: Still very in.
What I miss: Shawn and I are going away to DC this weekend for our anniversary and we have already started saying certain things we can't do or need to be careful of due to lots of walking (and my sciatic pain). I get down on myself for not being able to do things I used to be able to do without thinking twice! But I know all in good time I will be back ;)
What I'm looking forward to: Our 31 week ultrasound next week! I can't wait to see our little girl up on the big screen again!
Milestone: Our names are basically narrowed down to two, so that is exciting. We each have our favorite but we both like the other's choice as well. We will have to let our girl decide when she is born! Also, hitting 30 weeks and only have 10 (more? less?) weeks left until we meet her... wow. That is a big thing for me! We also had our nursery furniture delivered last week and I LOVE IT! I can't wait to finish the decorating now!
