30 Weeks

I have reached 30 weeks! The final countdown!
Is this real life? In just a short 10 weeks we will meet our baby girl.
I feel so unprepared, yet I just want her here now. We still have a lot to do and things we need to get. Lately I've been making lists because I can't keep track of everything. 
I know I'm reaching a point of feeling so indecisive about everything. Like our baby registry, one moment I feel like we have enough, then the next I feel the need to add more. 

Funny thing, I got a call from my doctors on Friday, well when I saw their number my heart started racing because I thought that they probably forgot to call me and I actually failed my glucose test! Well thankfully I did not fail it, but I do have really low iron. Which I've been thinking that this entire pregnancy but for some reason it just now showed up in my blood work. It totally explains a lot. I never gained my energy, I always feel so tired, and lately I've been feeling pretty weak. So now I have to take iron supplements and I just hope they help me more than hurt because I know iron can be hard for your body to absorb.

Even though I'm lacking energy, I have this weird need that everything needs to be ready and be in it's place. I can't stand anything being a mess or clutter. I find myself constantly cleaning...even when there isn't anything to clean. I guess this is what they call the nesting phase? We still need so much for her that it's starting to drive me crazy. I'm glad my baby shower is just a couple weeks away. That way we will hopefully have most of what we need! After that we are going to get everything ready. I've never been so excited to pack a bag in my life! 

Since I'm 30 weeks, I figured I'd do a little reminiscing and what I looked like at 20 weeks. 
There's such a huge difference in just 10 weeks! And I thought I was showing then. I'm always just so amazed at how much my belly changes.

30 Weeks!

How far along? 30 Weeks

Total weight gain: I honestly don't remember what I weighed at the doctors...I was talking to the nurse and didn't even look at the scale. But they said I'm still at a good weight! 

Maternity clothes? Yes! I have reached that point in pregnancy that normal clothes are just to uncomfortable and they fit weird. In general I'm very picky how it comes to clothes fitting me, so it's no surprise that being pregnant it's now even worse. Thank goodness I finally ordered a few shirts and a pair of jeans from PinkBlush Maternity..can't wait until those come in! 

Stretch marks? Not yet! Fingers crossed they stay away. 

Sleep: One night it's terrible, the next it's pretty bearable. But of course still waking up to pee every few hours. 

Best moment of this week: Celebrating my birthday! Caleb had the whole weekend off, and the day of my birthday. So it was so nice to get to spend that time together. We had just a small party, but I'm really not feeling up to much social gatherings at this point. 

Miss anything? Not to much, just feeling comfortable in clothes again. 

Movement: Yes! It's my favorite. Even when she moves in an uncomfortable way for me, I don't mind. I just really don't know when this girl sleeps because she's moving all throughout the day, and when I'm up at night. She's up wiggling all around. I can't figure out if me laying on my side really gets to her because she moves and kicks SO much. 

Food cravings: I really don't have a craving for anything in particular this week. The only thing I find myself really wanting is an Iced Caramel Latte. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: I can't quite figure out what's been bothering me lately. But I just haven't felt to good. Maybe between the heat and normal pregnancy symptoms are getting to me. But I'm really hoping and praying that this isn't a third trimester thing.

Gender: A sweet baby girl! 

Labor signs: Nothing except braxton hicks contractions

Symptoms: A lot of aches and pains, especially in my ribs and back. I'm getting to be pretty uncomfortable no matter what. I sit...uncomfortable, stand..uncomfortable, lay down...uncomfortable. It's been pretty tough lately to just sit and relax. Also I'm so exhausted that I could just sleep a whole day away. 

Belly button in or out? Well when little miss likes to poke it out, it is out. Otherwise it's still an innie-outie. 

Wedding rings on or off? On and off. If it's a humid day, there's no way. I think I'm going to get a fake set of rings just so I constantly have something on my finger. I hate not wearing my rings. Especially since I love mine so much. And I've had a ring on my finger so many years it's way to weird not having anything. 

Happy or moody most of the time: In between. I have days where I'm in a great mood. Than other days I'm not. 

Looking forward to: Our Maternity photoshoot! We have our first scheduled for Friday evening! I can't wait.
