30 Week Pregnancy Update

Today I am actually 31 weeks pregnant and I didn't get a chance to get my 30 week update posted on Monday like normal.  Usually we take bump pictures every week on Sunday but it just didn't work out this week.  So the ultrasound picture is from Monday (30 weeks 5 days) and the picture of me is from Tuesday (30 weeks 6 days).  Anyway, on to the update!


pregnancy, pregnant, third trimester, baby bump

How far along? 30 weeks and 6 days
Total weight gain/measurements: 38 inches
Maternity clothes: I finally found a Target that had the maternity tank top I wanted in black and in my size!!! :)
Stretch marks: I don't think so. In other news, the dark line that I've had below my belly button has definitely extended up above it and has gotten a little darker/more defined.
Sleep: I had a few nights this week that I was up for a few hours in the middle of the night. I've also been taking afternoon naps almost every day.
Best moment this week: Finding out that my placenta is finally in a position that is safe for labor! Also, at the ultrasound we were able to see the baby making little chewing motions with it's mouth. It was super cute. :)
Miss anything? Not really.
Movement: When I feel movement it's almost always a really big one.  The ultrasound showed that the baby is head down and where all the rest of the body parts are so now when I feel it move I can better tell what it is that I'm feeling, which is really cool!
Food Cravings: Dairy. I've been really wanting cheese and ice cream and yogurt...just anything dairy.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: We don't know.
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Leg cramps! Supposedly eating more potassium helps with this but I definitely eat plenty of potassium heavy foods every day so I think this one is kind of unavoidable. Also, stretching helps, but again, I'm pretty maxed out on that as well.
Belly button in or out? Mostly in still but a little out... it doesn't really make sense when I write it that way, but that's what it looks like.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: For the most part everything was fine this week but I was feeling increasingly nervous about going to our first childbirth class (just because I wasn't sure what to expect) and also about the ultrasound to check the position of the placenta because I knew I would either be very happy or very upset after it.
Looking forward to: My next childbirth class because the first one was super relaxing. :)

Thanks for reading!
:) Alice
