30 Weeks

April 30, 2009 Sarah Coggins

An update from my blog post at 28 weeks:

How far along? 30 weeks today

Total weight gain/loss: Two and a half pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight in October

Maternity clothes? Absolutely.

Stretch marks? Still not seeing any. *knock on wood*

Sleep: Good and bad. Some nights I wake up every 2 hours and some only a couple of times. I wish I could figure out what was making the difference so it would be more of the latter.

Best moment this week: Hearing the little guy’s heart beat at our check-up on Tuesday morning. 🙂 Strong 150.

Movement: A lot. He kicks my upper belly so much at times, I wonder if he’s in there kickboxing. LOL

Food cravings: No strong cravings that I’ve noticed recently.

Labor Signs: None.

Belly Button in or out? Still in, but it’s getting closer to flat.

What I am looking forward to: Meeting the little guy.

Milestones: Trent & I took our last trip until after the baby is born. We plan to stick close to home from here on out. I’m quite happy about this right now since my legs and behind were hurting and/or tingling during the ride home. No matter how I shifted, I could not get comfortable.

Energy Level: Fairly high at the moment. I even had enough to help Trent with some yard work on Tuesday night.
