New Years Baby: Week 30

What's up with Baby this week? Little lady measures about 18 inches long, and is almost as long as she'll be when she's born!  She is sleeping in longer stretches now, and I can notice defined sleep and wake patterns by her movement.

Symptoms? Heartburn is still a killer, and my belly has been aching a bit this week.  Think it's just getting sore from getting so stretched out!

Gender? Girlfriend.

Excited For? Making more progress on the nursery, buying the rest of the "big" items we need, our maternity photos in a week, and my second baby shower in two weeks!

Maternity Clothes? Almost exclusively maternity outside of work, and still managing to make my non-maternity scrubs work, but will need to make some changes on that front shortly.

Sleep? Sleeping great, still!  The only problem is I can't make it through the night without one or two bathroom breaks, and it never seems to fail that the last one of the night happens just 30-45 minutes before I need to be up for work, really stealing that last little bit of sleep from me each night.

Movement? Lots of it, but she seems to be doing a lot more adjusting and moving her position than kicking and punching now!

Belly Button Status? I don't know that I'd call it in anymore, it's more...flush with the belly at this point.

Missing Anything? Sleeping on my back and stomach!


30w3d Had my first baby shower with family and family friends, and was so touched and grateful for the generous gifts from everyone!

30w4d Baby girl's dresser arrived, and Handsome Husband was quick to get it upstairs to her room and all ready to be filled with diaper goodies and clothes!
Cravings? Fruit still!

Weight Gain? My doctor says up 17 pounds. I'm skeptical. And terrified.

My how I've grown!
