Wow. 30 weeks today. According to thebump.com our peanut is the size of a cucumber and weighs in around 2.5 to 3.8 pounds. A snippet from my weekly email:
"At 30 weeks, your belly’s doing more than just making it tough to find a comfortable sleeping position. It’s made itself a conversation piece. Everywhere you go, someone seems to have a comment about your physical appearance, which isn’t always so fun. And no doubt, you’ve encountered quite a few people who don’t think before they speak and say something embarrassing or hurtful (what’s up with that?)"
In the last week I've encountered several comments that were a tad hurtful. I really don't think people think before they speak. I am overly sensitive so that could play a part in all this as well. But to know me is to know that I'm highly self-conscious when I'm not pregnant so now, being pregnant, my self-consciousness is on ultimate awareness. But, I'm brushing off the comments and trying not to let them get to me. If I dwell on them I'll just be unhappy and that's the last thing I want to be during this period in my life.
Yellow! My favorite color to wear, next to black that is. I look kinda crabby huh? I swear, I'm happier today than what the photos portray. :) <--- see!
How far along: 30 weeks - ekkkk!
Maternity Clothes? You betcha! (Said in a Minnesotan accent of course.)
Stretch Marks? My daily cocoa butter applications must be working because I have none.
Sleep: More of it please! I've been pretty tired this week. 3rd trimester exhaustion must be setting in.
Best Moment this Week: Duhh, receiving my nursery furniture! I can't wait for the hubs to assemble it this weekend!
Miss Anything? Not really. I can't think of anything at the moment.
Movement: It's amazing how much I feel him/her! I love it so much. I was laying on the couch last night and put my cell phone on my stomach and just loved watching it move all around.
Food Cravings: Ice. Still. I seriously love chomping ice and can't stop!
Anything making you queasy or sick? I still can't chew gum without gagging.
Gender: I'm to the point that I just don't even know anymore. I have said girl from the beginning but now since everyone says I'm carrying as if I'm having a boy, I have no idea. And frankly, it doesn't matter to me. I just want a healthy baby.
Labor Signs: Nah. Hopefully not anytime soon either. This little one still needs to cook for a while.
Belly Button in or out? Still in surprisingly. But it's not pretty. Let's just leave it at that.
Wedding Rings on or off? Off. I miss my bling.
Happy or Moody Most of the Time: Happy!
Looking Forward to: My Minnesota baby shower this Saturday, the hubs repainting the nursery and assembling the crib and dresser!
