30 Week Bump Date
Gender: GIRL! Although one of my co-workers is not convinced that I’m really carrying a baby girl!
Baby’s heart rate: 130’s at my most recent appointment which was on Tuesday.
How’s baby measuring?: At my last appointment, my doctor said she was measuring a week behind. And at my most recent appointment she was measuring a week ahead, so I can definitely say she had a growth spurt.
Weight/weight gain: 136 pounds. So I’ve only gained 1 pound since my last appointment which was 2 weeks prior. I thought for sure I would’ve weighed more because I pigged out on my babymoon. but nope, I guess my cardio at the gym paid off.
Baby is the size of an: Large Cabbage! “Your baby is about 15.7 inches long now and weighs almost 3 pounds (about the size of a large cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will shrink as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it’s not very keen; even after she’s born, she’ll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she’ll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision – which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face.”
Signs of Labor: Nope! I’ve had a couple Braxton Hicks here and there, but nothing concerning.
Maternity clothes: Still no to maternity clothes. I’ve just been wearing loose dresses, flowy tops, and my shorts unbuttoned (when I sit down, thankfully I can still button them!)
Stretch Marks: None that I can see!
Cravings: I haven’t been craving anything lately. I still love my avocados, and order extra guac on the side of anything but I haven’t been eating it every single day.
Sleep: So I’m officially pregnant. why you ask? Because I wake up 2-3x a night to pee! It’s the worst.
Movement: She moves ALL.THE.TIME. especially after I eat sweets, and she’s super active in the middle of the night.
How am I feeling: I feel okay. I’m still very emotional and almost anything makes me cry. But I haven’t been as snappy lately.
Any exciting updates to share: Well we went on our babymoon last week and we had a phenomenal time. My husband I definetly needed this vacation for us, and for our sanity lol. It was nice to getaway and just enjoy each other’s company. Read my “How to plan a babymoon” blog post HERE.
Also, our maternity photos are today and I am so excited to see how the photos turn out. But hopefully my dress still fits, considering Laila had a little growth spurt. But I will share those photos as soon as I get them back.
Tomorrow I will be modeling at the Prego Expo in Tampa Florida, and I will be taking over their instagram account for the day to show you a “day in the life of a VIP at the Prego Expo” so this is going to be a ton of fun! You should def follow along!!
Our baby shower is next weekend, and RJ’s first day of KINDERGARTEN is the following Friday! We pretty much bought all his school clothes, and school supplies, all we need to get is a new pair of running shoes. But all in all, he’s pretty much ready!
But that’s really it for this week’s bump date. Kind of boring, but more so to just document my pregnancy since this is the very last time.
