30 WEEKS




How far along: 30 weeks...THIRTY weeks!

Baby Size: baby girl is about 18 inches, 3 lbs

Weight gain: forgot to weigh myself this week while in FL for Thanksgiving

Maternity clothes: oh yeah. Best things ever. 

Stretch marks: nope

Sleep: still having rib pain at times when I'm laying down. On Thanksgiving night, I had really sharp pains in my stomach - probably just over-ate!

Best moment this week: This was an absolutely wonderful week, so lots of best moments.  One was my shower in my hometown! I got to see so many of my friends and family members, and baby girl got so many nice things. We also took our Babymoon in Palm Beach and I had an amazing spa day with a Mommy-to-be package. And lastly, we decided on a name for baby and shared with our family on Thanksgiving. 

Looking forward to: getting all our gifts from the shower home and going through what we got again it was all a whirlwind! 

What I miss: not too much. Would have been nice to have a glass of wine Thanksgiving night :)

Movement: yes!

Food cravings: mac and cheese (not the GF kind, unfortunately - so it's a no-go)

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope

Gender: GIRL!

Labor Signs: nope

Symptoms: back is starting to hurt more and more 

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: thankful, hopeful, happy

Nursery: making progress



31 WEEKS




How far along: 31 weeks

Baby Size: the baby is the size of a large coconut (~18.5 inches, 3.2 lbs). But she measured nearly 4 pounds at our ultrasound this week! Which is insane to me. 

Weight gain: up 1.2 pounds from 2 weeks ago; up about 9 pounds overall

Maternity clothes: yep

Stretch marks: no new ones, anyway!

Sleep: some nights are better than others...

Best moment this week: bringing my mother-in-law to our ultrasound - she was so excited to "see" baby and take home ultrasounds pics! We also went to ATL for the day to see our "Greenville friends" and they threw us a little surprise shower! So fun! 

Looking forward to: working on the nursery some more!

What I miss: not much

Movement: oh yes - I can tell she is growing and getting much stronger!

Food cravings: not much right now

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope

Gender: GIRL!

Labor Signs: nope

Symptoms: back is starting to hurt more and more; have had a few Braxton Hicks contractions (I think!), and the energy of the 2nd trimester has officially left the building. 

Belly Button in or out? In but it's starting to be more sensitive and feel stretched

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: tired but happy. Love feeling baby girl move around so much. 

Nursery: currently full of tons of boxes and bags of baby goods and gifts! Ordered the light fixture and rug, so we're making progress. 

Prayer for Baby: Lord, please be with our baby girl as she grows day by day and nears her big debut. We are head over heels in love with her and in awe of the miracle she is. We know she is perfect in your sight, and pray for her health and wellbeing while in the womb and once she arrives in this world. Thank you for the many family and friends who pray for her and who have showered us with so much love over the last few weeks. We are blessed beyond measure! Amen.
