How far along? 30 weeks today!
How big is baby? 15.7 inches, about 3lbs.
Total weight gain/loss? No idea. I don’t weight myself and my doctor’s scale is waaay off.
Maternity clothes? I occasionally squeeze into a pre-pregnancy shirt but those days are limited.
Sleep? Eh. I’ve come to accept that sleep is just not going to happen from here on out.
Best moment this month? My husband recently had a series of overseas flights and was gone for an extended period of time. We skyped and I sent him pictures but it didn’t compare to him actually being home. It was nice to have him home again and baby kicked in happiness too!
Symptoms? Heartburn every single day. Still throwing up (I guess that’s not going away either). Sciatic nerve pain. In general I’m feeling very large. I’ve bumped a few of my students with my belly on accident. They’re at that perfect belly height! Speaking of preK, they are exhausting! Most afternoons I come home and and take a nap.
Food cravings? Cereal. Milk. Those popsicles that are fruit flavored but have veggies blended in. It’s my excuse to eat three at a time.
Food aversions? Tomatoes or very acidic things.
Gender? It’s a surprise 🙂 Every once in a while I have a day where I think I JUST NEED TO KNOW!!!! but then it passes.
Labor signs? I had my first braxton hicks contraction! I was driving home from work when I felt all the muscles in my abdomen tense up and get really hard. It wasn’t painful, but definitely felt weird.
Belly button in or out? Flat.
What I miss? Nothing.
What I’m looking forward to? Our baby shower March 5th. I’m also really looking forward to going out on maternity leave. Originally I planned on April 22 being my last day (due April 26), but I’m thinking about moving my date up. I can’t do the physical aspects of teaching preK anymore and I feel like I’m pushing myself too hard with my 20 students. My long term sub is already arranged and can start beginning of April so I’m thinking we may co-teach for a week or two and then I’m out!
Milestones? 10 weeks left! We take our last class at the hospital March 12th – labor and delivery/hospital tour.
Bump? Large and in charge!
