Bump Date- 30 Weeks

How Far Along: 30 weeks and 4 days. 

Baby is the size of: Baby G is the size of a cucumber. Baby is about  15 to 16 inches and weighs around 3.8 pounds. 

Total Weight Gain: Ugh, I'm up 20ish. I'm sure I'll know if it went up much more at my appointment Thursday. 

Sleep:  Is just terrible. Most days I get less than 5 hours of sleep. Every time I move during sleep it wakes me up. Plus, this dumb cough just won't go away. I feel like I'm just walking around in a fog. I keep thinking I'm forgetting things and honestly can't remember simple stuff any longer.  

Best Moment of the week:

* We finished all the big things in the baby's room. All we have to do is decorate. I have to find some prints on Etsy that go with are theme and then find some gender specific ones for when baby comes. 
* Getting to spend the weekend with my parents for my dad's birthday! 

Worst Moment of the Week: 
* I spent almost half the night on the maternity floor for monitoring last Wednesday due to some severe back pains.  Apparently this baby is a low rider and sits very low. We are keeping a close eye on it but it's making me such a nervous mess. I wrote more in depth about it here.  

* I am generally feeling defeated. I worry about so much all the time. I know it isn't good for the baby and I try to relax but I'm always second guessing myself and thinking I'm not good enough or won't be good enough. 

Miss Anything:
* It sounds simple but I miss shopping for clothes. I've always been a shop-o-holic. Can't wait to really shop for the baby! 

Food Cravings: Anything sweet!!!

Anything make you queasy: Nothing.

Have you started to show? Oh yes! Got home from work last night and my husband says "Wow, you're getting big" Thanks for the support!!! 

Gender: Surprise baby!!! 

Symptoms: Pressure, well you know where, back pain. 

Workouts: Not a thing. 

Mood: I'm a hormonal mess. If you read the post I referred to up above you probably know why.

Looking forward to: 

* Meeting baby! We are getting so close! 

Maternity Clothes: A good mix of maternity pants. I'm still loving non maternity dresses over leggings. Leggings are my BEST FRIEND!

Stretchmarks: Nothing yet. Thank goodness! I'm starting to itch though so I feel them coming. 

Rings on or off? Depends on the day. 

Bellybutton in or out? Still holding strong as an in but I have a feeling that will be changing very soon. 

This week I: 
* Finished up on the nursery. 

* Got the MamaRoo from my parents. The darn thing is defective and I have to bring it back. 

Baby Update:
* Baby's head is very low but not causing any other issues besides back pain. 
* Baby's skin is getting smoother. 
* Baby is strong enough to grasp a finger.
