The big 3-0...and this time I'm ecstatic about that number.
WEEK 30. THREE OH! Totally Stoked to be in my 30's! (and I'm definately not talking about my age here folks)
Total weight gain: Approx. 20-22 pounds. I was pleasantly surprised on Monday when I finally jumped on the scale and it still hovered at 20lbs meaning I had not gained anything in three weeks. Today, I double checked and it says 22 but I'm wearing a heavy sweater and boots plus there is always water fluctuation so I'm giving a range to make myself feel better. Go with it mmmkay? Thx.
Maternity clothes? Today? NOPE...Not a stitch. I did wear maternity pants the past two days....I still hate them. I'm looking into investing into a belly band and nursing bras soon though.
Sleep: I have not been sleeping well lately but I did sleep last night. Very hard. So that's good.
Best moment this week: Nothing in particular just a general feeling of excitement at how far along I am and approaching the time to meet this amazing little man. Oh well and of course we are finally making progress on the nursery which adds to that excitement!
Gender: Definately a BOY!
Craving: Still Lemon. Steaks and Salads have been hitting the spot lately too. YUM. My husband actually said to me "Steak, potato and salad AGAIN this week? It's like a record" Me: Well I can stop if you are tired of it. Him: "Honey, I doubt you will ever hear me or any other man say they are sick of steak and potatoes. I like this craving of yours."
Movement: Definately and I love every second of it.
Labor Signs: No.
Belly Button in or out? Still In
What I miss: Just sleep. I'm not even missing the control over my skinnier frame anymore.
What I am looking forward to: Seeing the Nursery come together and my crib arriving.
Milestones: Crib is on order. Paint is purchased for nursery and the process has begun on that. So excited!
P.S. Is it me or do I look THINNER this week then the last few weeks? I think I've lost some bloat which may account for my reduced weight gain.
P.P.S. I'm totally sporting the pigtails today. I know a woman in her 30's shouldn't wear them, but I love them and they are easy so kiss my foot.
