I can't believe we're at the three-quarter mark. 75% sounds so close to finished. But then, 25% still sounds like a lot of time left. It still seems like we have plenty of time to finish getting ready. It sounds like I still have a lot of time to expand and get very uncomfortable. Assuming we go at least the full 40 weeks, of course.
How far along: 30 weeks Countdown to EDD: 10 weeks/70 days Baby is the size of a: Cucumber. Baby is still practicing his breathing skills. I felt hiccups for the first time this week!
Physical symptoms:Heartburn (my own fault, thanks buffalo chicken), pretty intense RLP and lower back pain on my right side. I realized I stand with all of my weight on my right foot and I need to stop. My belly is getting too heavy for that. Mood: Mostly good
Total Weight Gain/Loss:Enough
Maternity clothes:Nothing new. I did buy some new non-maternity yoga pants though. My old ones were OLD. I think I'll pack them in my hospital bag since they've been on their way out for years.
Sleep:Not bad. I don't sleep through the night, but I sleep without terrible pain.
Best moment of the week: We finished ordering our cloth diaper stash! I'm so pumped for them to get here.
Movement: It's different all of a sudden. I still get kicks and pokes, but now I really feel his whole body moving. Sometimes he'll lean up against the outside and I can see him and feel him sitting there. It makes my stomach look misshapen.
Food cravings/aversions: French fries and Boston creme donuts, not necessarily together but I probably wouldn't say no.
Labor signs:Tons of BH contractions, thankfully nothing else
What I miss:Beer and cold turkey hoagies
What I am looking forward to:Getting our cloth diapers, finishing up the nursery, Thanksgiving, the end of the semester...
Milestones: Today! 30 weeks sounds like a big deal. The next big number will be our EDD! Showing yet: I squeezed myself into a non-maternity tank to make another comparison photo. I'm pretty sure that I felt "puffy" at 10 weeks. L.O.L. Check out my boobs too. Go on, have a look - you don't even need a magnifying glass anymore. They're just still just a B, but that's a B for "Biggest they've ever been".
