Bump-date Weeks 28-30

by

Hey hey hey loves!

Here’s another pregnancy update for you all! Boy am I ready for baby girl to be here and to be posting adorable baby photos instead of bump photos and everything that’s going on with my body these days, ha! But for reals. Hopefully we’re in the single digits week wise until she makes her debut, assuming she comes on or before her due date! Prayers appreciated!! Pregnancy is so long and so hard ya’ll. The hubs gave me a hilarious and sweet card the other day that’s supposed to be for someone in the military thanking me for my service haha! I appreciate the thanks and I know my daughter won’t have any idea what it’s like until she experiences it herself, that’s crazy to think about! Ah! As we speak she’s trying to make some more room in my belly with her sharp little elbows and knees, can you say ouch!? So painful! People are always alarmed when they’re around me and she moves because it pretty much always hurts and I tend to make some kind of face or exclamation when it happens, someone even asked me if I was going into labor the other day! Nope still weeks away from labor just dealing with my crazy daughter’s dance moves, thanks for asking! πŸ˜‰ I think the hubs and I are in for it because baby girl is sooo aggressive. Chill out in there girlfriend! Save those moves for dance class or chasing the dogs around or something. Ok, great thanks! πŸ˜‰ Anyways, on to the updates from the last few weeks.IMG_4328

Week 30:

  • Baby girl is the size of a cantaloupe
  • We’re officially 3/4 of the way to meeting our girl
  • We scheduled maternity and new born photos
  • I’m still craving carbs and sweets

Symptoms/cravings these last few weeks:

  • Very vivid dreams-continued
  • Constant trips to the bathroom-continued (baby girl is always poking my bladder)
  • Heat sensitivity-continued, I get hot so easily and the heat makes me so nauseous and now makes my feet and calves swell up-ouch
  • Pregnancy brain-continued-the struggle is real let me tell you
  • Weight gain and general body enlargement- face/back/hips/waist/legs/belly/boobs
  • Braxton hicks- continued
  • I can’t bend over or I feel like I’m going to throw up- for reals. There’s no room for food and a baby
  • Lots of back pain during the day and at night-continued-thank God for this pregnancy pillow, I highly recommend it and this pillow for the car and the couch
  • Constant pinching in my right hip- especially if I stay in one position too long-continued
  • My sweet tooth is out of control these days- still craving fruit-especially watermelon-continued
  • If I change positions to fast then I get a little dizzy/light headed so I need to be careful moving too fast, ha makes me feel so old-continued
  • I can no longer eat spicy or acidic foods or I get heartburn/acid reflux pretty bad-especially at night-continued
  • Pregnancy insomnia- if I’m not trying to get comfortable or getting up to go the bathroom my mind is racing and I can’t sleep-continued
  • Her kicks and moves are pretty uncomfortable/painful and she is so active- I think we’re in for a wild child πŸ˜‰-continued
  • 1 word for you- hemorrhoids- ouch (just keeping it real folks)
  • The tiredness like in the first trimester is back in full force and I’m finding myself needing to take lots more breaks and rests and want to go to bed early again

I think that’s everything that’s been going on the last few weeks. You can tell from my face and hairstyles how exhausted I am, ha. There is no amount of editing that can take that away, sadly. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for all the suggestions on Instagram the other day regarding some post content you want to see on the blog. I will be sharing some nursery decor/progress, maternity wardrobe basics, a hospital bag packing list, more maternity style, and some registry favorites of mine so far! I will also be bringing back my “Friday Favorites” posts to show what I’m loving from the week! I hope you all have a great night and weekend! I’m looking forward to my second baby shower tomorrow, see the outfit here and getting some more stuff done around the house while the hubs is around! πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by and for all the pregnancy support!! We’re in the home stretch!!
