How far along: 30 Weeks....am I seriously writing a THREE!?
Maternity clothes: Yes - Loving maxi dresses and flowy skirts at the moment
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Waking up frequently, and still never feel as though it's enough. Guess I can call it practice
Best moment of the week: Getting a sneak peak ultrasound of baby girl - she is head down and weighing a little over 3lbs!
Worst moment of the week: Getting my Tdap vaccine! OUCH! But totally worth it!
Running/Workouts: No change - some 5 mile runs are great, some 2 mile runs are torture, trying my best to just listen to my body and not over do it (easier said than done)
Missing anything: Sleep (is it too early to be saying that?)
Movement: I feel like a broken record, but every little kick, jab and movement I feel is wonderful! Truly the most amazing part of the entire pregnancy. It's also pretty exciting when others can see or feel her move, too
Cravings: Nothing new - watermelon, Panera Bread ham and cheese, french fries, salads
Things that make me queasy: Nausea and gagging usually kick in right after I eat - But it's been almost a full week of no vomiting!!
Energy level: Exhausted
Labor signs: Still having random, non painful contractions here and there
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Looking forward to: 3D/4D ultrasound tomorrow!
Something surprising about being pregnant: I've been experiencing more and more pelvic discomfort, round ligament pain and newly sciatica pain for the first time. Some days running feels easier than just walking around. My bladder always feels full. Yet, I'm still amazed how well the body compensates and accommodates this growing little person. Uncomfortable? Yeah, of course.....But manageable and worth it? Absolutely!
