How far along: 30 Weeks
I’m feeling: most days I feel great and others I wonder how this belly could possibly grow any more to house a child that is going to put on 3+ lbs in 10 weeks!!
Total weight gain: 20 lbs
Baby Rote’s size: 17 in 3.1 lbs - comparable to a cantaloupe
This week: I helped celebrate by best friend's little girl turning one on Saturday, and it was a reminder of how fast everything will go because I swear I just took her maternity pictures!
Steve has been great this week getting so much done in the baby room - new paint and curtains. Plus we started calving on the 22nd so he is also busy being a midwife!! haha
Steve and I both caught a cold this week so lots of essential oil use here ... I'm really hoping it is about done because my nose is raw!
Maternity clothes: I bought a robe that is marketed as maternity but in my opinion it is just a regular robe - either way I'm happy with it because it is super comfy for lounging around the house
Sleep: surprisingly even with my cold I've still slept pretty good, just a little more restless but not much!
Best moment this week: getting baby shower gifts delivered! That option on registries is so nice to have the gift shipped straight to the recipient. By far my favorite was the Moses Basket my mom got us - I'm sure this will be in many photos once our little one is here!
Movement: Instead of the little jabs it now just feels like waves moving across my stomach
Food cravings: BBQs with extra pickle juice and a giant side of pickles. (Good thing we have an ample amount of beef in the freezer!!)
Food aversions: nothing
Belly button in or out: flat
Looking forward to: I have a pedicure and manicure next week that I can't wait for!!
