bump update - 30 weeks - round 2

This picture doesn't do my bump justice. For my 32 week update I'll be sure to take it from a better angle

Due Date: April 13, 2015 (I'll have a scheduled c-section sometime between April 6th-10th)

Gender: Boy!

Movement: Constant movement and this baby is in my ribs (Trace never was)... what a strange and uncomfortable feeling, especially when I bend over or get low (to pick something up off the ground, to talk to Trace at eye level, etc)

Feeling: Really pregnant! I feel like I woke up the day I became 30 weeks, looked in the mirror and shocked myself at how big I've gotten in just the past week. And having everyone I see say "Wow! You've gotten BIG" hasn't helped much :/

Food Cravings: Pastry-like sweets, which is so funny because I'm not even a sweets or dough lover, but I guess that's why they call them pregnancy cravings

Food Aversions: Fish, Asian food, pickles

Clothes: I don't even want to talk about clothes. Too depressing! Basically, at this point with Trace it was warm out, so I was able to wear sundresses, maxi dresses, tank tops, etc and it was wonderful. Being stuck in jeans and leggings is just torture right now. They're all so constricting, my jeans are becoming really uncomfortable and I'm so over leggings and how big they make my ass look. Ugh...

Stretch Marks: Nope, but I am carrying much more in my stomach this time and am more concerned about stretch marks than ever before

Sleep: I'm am sleeping so inanely well and really thankful for it

Symptoms: My big belly is making it harder and harder to bend over, get up off of the couch/floor and play with Trace. I have consistent heartburn also

What I Miss: My regular wardrobe and feeling comfortable in my own skin. But more than anything I really miss Trace being able to sit on my lap and snuggle with me comfortably

Best Moment: Bryan painted the nursery and I've finally chosen a loose theme/colors for the room

Memorable Moment: Asking my friend to deliver my little guy!


  1. How are you 30 weeks already! Gah this pregnancy has flown by it seems (for me at least, ha)! You are having Andrea deliver baby #2?? That's so great!! I can't wait to see this precious peanut soon!!!

  2. You look great! I'm with you about the heartburn, I really don't like taking anything but it's pretty out of control. Our nursery was painted this week too, doesn't it feel nice to have at least some of it done?

  3. according to your current (aka a month ago) food aversions we won't be having any fried pickles during my next visit. :)

  4. This time seriously has flown and you look GREAT!

  5. ohhh I remember the baby in the ribs oh so well!!! That junk hurts.

  6. This is going by so quickly, you look great.

  7. enjoy your gomi thread!

  8. You're an adorable prego!

  9. You're almost there & look amazing!! :)

    LOL - I'm guilty of the "Wow! you're belly looks big!" comment group…. I'll keep my observations to a minimum…. But you do look cute, it's tough not to comment! ;)

  10. You look great girl! I remember those "baby in ribs" days well - no fun at all!
