So for the 30 week update...here's where we are at:
How Far Along: 30Weeks
Size of baby: Lexi weighs as much as a large cabbage.She is tipping the scales this week at 3 pounds. (Length: about 15 3/4 inches, head to heel.)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 19 pounds. I took a jump this month. 9 pounds in one month?? Yikes! My doctor said that it was fine since I had only gained 10 pounds up to that point...but dang! I can't do that again!
Maternity Clothes: Pants and tights for sure...Shirts are a mixture of regular and maternity...mostly regular. I do have to wear Robert's shirts to sleep in. If I wear mine, they are around my neck when I wake up in the morning. :)
Gender: Girl, Lexi Belle
Movement: Constant! While my doctor was listening to the heartbeat yesterday, Lexi kicked really hard and my belly popped up! My doctor just smiled at me! My 20 year-old brother, Ethan, is home for Spring Break so he got to feel her kick the other night.
Sleep: It's about the same as it has been. I have better nights than others, but I wake up quite a bit at night. I roll from my left side to my right, then on my back. I'll be so glad to sleep all night...but that won't happen for a LONG time!
What I miss: Nothing really, maybe breathing.
Cravings: Nothing in particular. I just eat :)
Symptoms: Sore back, shortness of breath, swelling (although it is better now). My Dr. said that it will be worse at the end of the week...which was the case last week.
Best Moment this week: Hearing her heartbeat once again and knowing she's doing great! Nursery progress is coming a long so that's exciting too! I ordered the changing table yesterday so hopefully it will be in next week!
