30 Weeks

It has been 6 weeks since my last post. Sorry! Life has gotten so busy! Just when I think I can sit down to post, something comes up!

How Far Along: 30 Weeks

Size of Baby: Baby Wolfe is about 15.7 inches long and weighs about 3 pounds now!

30 Weeks: He is the size of a head of cabbage! A pint of amniotic fluid sorrounds baby now. His eyesight is continuing to develop, though its not very keen, even after he is born he will keep his eyes closed for a good part of the day. When he does open them he will respond to changes in light but will have a 20/400 vision-meaning he only will be able to make out objects a few inches from his face.

Sleep: Getting much harder! I wake up a lot during the night with horrible hip pain and can't seem to find a very comfortable position. I also wake up about 4 times each night to pee! Can't win...guess I am getting "trained" for when he comes.

Best Moment of the Week: We started painting the baby's room and have received some presents in the mail! We also got a call that the dresser and night stand are in, still waiting on the crib.

Movement: LOTS of movement! So many of my friends and family have gotten to feel him move and I love that I can share it with them! You don't even have to touch my belly you can see him move under my shirt. Sometime I just sit and stare at my belly and watch him move!

Symptoms: I am starting to get pretty uncomfortable. A lot of symptoms from first trimester are creeping back. I feel like I have no energy and tire very easy, I have started developing back pain, nausea and vomiting immediately after I eat a meal, heart burn is in full force and I find myself taking in deep breaths all the time trying to catch my breath. I hate to complain, if I have to go through this for the next 10 weeks then bring it on. I can do it, its just getting harder!

Food Cravings: Nothing in particular. I do get "obsessed" with certain foods for awhile. For example I LOVED rice krispies with a banana then it was peanut butter toast all the time, now its an apple with animal crackers.

Gender: Boy! ( However, I did have a dream it was a girl and we had to bring her home to all boy clothes and a boy room!)

What I Miss: My regular clothes, its getting harder to find something to wear that looks decent, maternity clothes are not my favorite. I am also missing Body Pump at the YMCA. This time of year many people are starting to go back to the gym as the weather gets colder. Can't wait to start working out again.

What I am Looking forward to: Getting the baby's room put together and my baby showers!

Weekly Wisdom: Eat multiple small meals and not three big ones, otherwise you will lose half the meal shortly after you eat it!

Milestone: Making it to 30 weeks!

I will try to update as often as I can, I hope not go 6 weeks without updating again. Sorry!

Love, Kristen
