30 week survey

How far along: I am now 30 weeks pregnant ... my ticker says 70 days to go, but you never know! I had Griffin, with no induction, at 38 weeks and 2 days ... agh!



Size of baby: Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds (according to Babycenter). The baby feels like she weighs 10 pounds, but I know she doesn't. My belly just feels heavy since I am carrying all my weight right there.


Maternity clothes: Definitely maternity pants and mostly maternity shirts. Some of my favorite shirts are getting too short in the front!


Gender: It's a GIRL named Harper Elizabeth!


Movement: I feel her move A LOT! I told my friend this week that she is doing gymnastics on my bladder because I FEEL that a lot! She also woke me up from sleep twice last night!


Sleep: I am starting to get super tired again (I went to bed at 8:30 Wednesday night). I sleep pretty well at night, except my back has been sore making laying in certain ways uncomfortable.

What I miss: Being able to move, bend, and walk without a waddle! I also miss being able to see my feet!!!


Cravings: This week I ate jellybeans like they were going out of style and I drank a ton of water!

Symptoms: My ankles have been swelling every day at work, so I come home and put my feet up. I've also been having a lot of back pain ... not fun!


Best moment this week: Not hearing back from my doctor's office, so I guess I passed my blood sugar test ... yeah! I was pretty worried that I might fail!


What I'm looking forward to: I CANNOT wait to start my Spring Break! I have a pregnancy massage scheduled for Tuesday afternoon and I need it big time! Also, I have a lot of little girl laundry to do and I am going to pack my bag (at least start it) next week. Since my labor with Griffin started unexpectedly, I never packed a bag and just threw things in a suitcase after my water broke. I need to be better prepared this time!

29 week survey

How far along: I am now 29 weeks pregnant ... it's weird how some people think my belly look big and some people think I look little.


Size of baby: Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel (according to Babycenter). I saw my doctor yesterday and he felt the baby and thought she was close to 3 pounds.


Maternity clothes: Definitely maternity pants and mostly maternity shirts. A lot of my shirts are getting too short in the front!


Gender: It's a GIRL named Harper Elizabeth!


Movement: I feel her move A LOT ... she is a kicking queen! She kicked the Doppler 5 times during my appointment yesterday!


Sleep: I am starting to get super tired again. I sleep pretty well at night, except my back has been sore making laying in certain ways uncomfortable.


What I miss: Being able to move, bend, and walk without a waddle!


Cravings: This week I ate a decent amount of fruit ... green grapes and apples.


Symptoms: I still had some shortness of breath this week and it was joined my ankles swelling each day after work :(


Best moment this week: I did some cleaning/organizing in Harper's room over the weekend and I also got this super cute hat in the mail ... it's from this etsy shop. SO CUTE!!!
What I'm looking forward to: Hopefully, passing the blood sugar test (no results yet; they said 24-48 hours). I'm also looking forward to my upcoming Spring Break from school where I plan on focusing on the nursery and getting things ready for Harper!

Here are some of the "insightful" things I posted to facebook this week ...

====================================
  • Working" on his laptop ...
  • ‎"Mommy, take my picture. Cheese!"
  • Griffin was sitting on my lap today and the baby kicked him. He looked at me and said, "Mommy, Harper kicked me." ... and so it begins ... ;)
  • Jimmy took Griffin to the grocery store and I got to clean the house in peace ... so rare, but so awesome!!
  • Thank you to Chick-fil-A for providing my Coca-Cola for today ... oh, and our lunch too!
  • The snow covered trees are pretty this morning ...

  • Snow Day ... #7 now!
  • to the boy in my house who drinks out of "big boy cups with no lids" and pees standing up, ... STOP GROWING UP SO QUICKLY!! YOUR MOTHER CANNOT DEAL WITH IT!!!!
  • going to bed in hopes that I'll wake up and it'll be Friday ... 2 more work days just won't cut it this week ;(
  • Jimmy and I have set our guesses for baby Harper's weight ... 8.8 is his and 9.7 is mine. Griffin was 9.5, so we'll see ...
  • Griffin threw 2 huge temper tantrums in the span of 15 minutes and now he is being an angel ... oh, the 3s are SO fun ... ha!
  • if you see me at Target, turn around and run the other way ... I have an incredibly whiny toddler with me ... really, it's for your own good!
  • hello, sciatic nerve pain ... you made your presence known and now you can leave!
  • Kallyn was just using a rope as a lasso and she came close to Griffin and he told her, "you're freaking me out." I have no clue where he learned that?
  • eyebrow wax completed and now I feel like a new woman - ha ;)
  • In all the preggo books, they tell you that your hair (on your head) will grow, but they fail to mention your eyebrows! Mine have been crazy!
  • Griffin asked for a turkey sandwich and banana bread for breakfast ... ha!
  • Griffin makes it so easy to check on him because I can hear him snoring ...
  • It's Thursday night; my brain has gone on strike and is refusing to work ;)
