30 week bumpdate

How far along? 30 weeks (only 10 weeks or less left) 69 days to go!
How big is the baby? baby is the size of CABBAGE.  She's about 15.7" long and weighs approx 2.75lbs
Weight Gain/Loss: I've gained 19lbs so far. Since my last dr visit 4 weeks ago I've gained 4lbs, she said she'd be ok if I gained more weight in between visits.  I think I'll stick with how things are going.  I still have 10 weeks to go so I'm hoping I don't gain to much more weight. But I guess we'll see how it goes.
Maternity clothes? I'm down to wearing the only 2 tanks that still fit my growing belly and my maxi skirt from Target and these baseball shorts I have.
Stretch marks? no new ones!
Sleep: it has been gettng better.  I've had a few nights this week where I haven't had to get up to go to the bathroom, which has been nice.  I wish when I got into bed I would just fall asleep right away, I know I'm tired but it seems to take me at least an hour before finally falling alseep.
Best moment this week: recieving Kendall's homecoming hat in the mail (it's so cute & tiny)
Miss Anything? not having my boobs touch my belly (sorry TMI), my boobs this time around are so much bigger, they hurt and they are heavy.  Sneezing and not peeing a little each time!
Movement: LOTS, she is most active mid afternoon & at night.
Anything making you queasy or sick: if I don't drink enough water or if I do to much I feel like I need to be sick.

Labor Signs: None.
Symptoms: braxton hicks, really BAD HEARTBURN (I've noticed I get it bad when I eat chocolate, so I guess I need to stop eating chocolate :(
Belly Button in or out? In the middle (its not really in but its not out)
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: happy and ready to have this little girl here!
Looking forward to: getting Kendall's homecoming outfit that my mom is making.  She's monogramming Kendall's name on a gown to match her hat.
How the siblings are doing: they are pretty much the same this week as last week.  Kaylee asking if baby sissy is going to come out already.  Keira has been giving an obsene amout of kisses!

30 week dr check up:

weight: 135lbs (I've gained 19lbs so far)
bp: 108/70
urine: good
measuring: 27 weeks
heartbeat: good

My dr appt went fast.  Pretty much in and out, which is nice when I have both girls with me.  I had to get blood work done to make sure that I'm still Rh- and if it comes back as I still am then I go back Friday (today) to get the shot.  The nurse tried to take blood from my right arm first, no blood came out!  So she had to try on my left arm and blood came out this time.  Not fun!!  But my dr said everything looks great and baby girl's heartbeat sounds great.  I start going every 2 weeks now.  My next appt is Sept 6th. 


  1. Love the name on belly!! cute.

  2. Very cute! Although my back started hurting just thinking about being pregnant again LOL. Can't wait to see her in her little outfit!

  3. Getting so close!! Your baby bump is so cute :) & I love the pics with the name too

  4. I love the scrabble letters! Such a sweet touch :)

  5. No more chocolate shakes! :/ And love the scrabble letters pic, cute!

  6. You still look so cute pregnant!!! =) Kendall will be here before you know it =)

  7. I can't believe you are 30 weeks already! It is going so fast! You look great. I can't wait to see baby girl's outfit. And, the no chocolate thing - bummer!

    1. I know its going by fast now, were almost down to the single digit countdown!
      I've noticed when I eat chocolate chip cookies I'm ok, so maybe its just straight chocolate, so I think chocolate shakes should be ok. I cant wait to see her outfit too.

  8. Ha ha - I had to laugh at your "what I miss" because mine are exactly the same! With Asher my boobs were pretty much the same until my milk came in, but this time they are huge and heavy and hurting already. I dread to think about those first weeks of milk... :-)

  9. You are so tiny! What a beautiful woman! And I love the name choice. I've been reading blogs on my phone and not able to comment but it's such a pretty name. She'll fit right in! :)
