30 Weeks

Today is a momentous occasion! I am 30 weeks- 3/4ths of the way done with the pregnancy. This is where things get interesting.

Baby Drake is growing right along and weighs about 3 lbs and is about 15.7 inches long from crown to rump! Weighing roughly the same as a head of cabbage, it's no wonder the little kicks and punches are getting more forceful.

What I’m excited about/looking forward to: We are in the home stretch now! Hope these ten weeks go really fast!

Symptoms: Hips hurting and some swelling. This is alleviated though with movement and lots of Tylenol. Lots of heartburn, including things that normally don't give heartburn, like milk (!!)

Food cravings: Subway! Sandwiches, chicken, mostly good for me things.

Gender: Baby Drake is a boy!

Sleep: Not as restful, but still get plenty of it.

Labor Signs: Nope!

Belly Button in or out? Halfway in between. Super shallow now. I can actually see it shifting.

What I miss: Personal grooming "down there" and also bending over.

Milestones: 30 Weeks is a huge milestone! We are officially in the last 25% of pregnancy now! Hard to believe! It honestly feels like we just got pregnant.

The Bump (My Lovely Baby Bump!)

Previously: 24 Weeks/6 Months

Currently: 30 Weeks/7.5 Months

Brian's grandma, aunt and cousin saw us today and were remarking on how tiny my baby bump actually is! Sweet of them to say! PS That is the tunic from Old Navy. I practically live in this thing! 

What do you guys think? Am I glowing? :)

Just 10 weeks/2.5 months left to go! Did anyone else know that pregnancy is really about 10 months long? Me either... 


  1. Totally glowing! Love that tunic too. :) I know where to go if I ever get preggers! They have some cool stuff!

    Maybe taking short walks across the apartment (or "laps around a room") would give you some help for your hips, and with your labor? My Sister in law said she wished she walked more during her pregnancy. But she's running 5k's every morning now, so she's back in fighting form (with a 2 year old and trying to get preggers with #2).

    Most of my friends who have been pregnant had the same experience - by trimester 3, they were ready to be done and just be a mom. :)

  2. You are so beautiful! I'm very happy for you three. :-)
