Pregnancy Update: 30 Weeks

Where in the world did the time go? It felt like time was moving slowly, and then all of a sudden I woke up with just 10 weeks left to go! It definitely feels like crunch time. My baby shower is next weekend, and then after that it's full speed ahead to preparing and buying for baby's arrival. I'm feeling nervous and excited. 

Due date: October 1, 2014

How far along: 30 weeks + 2

Next appointment: This afternoon. 

Gender: Girl! :-)

Stretch marks: None on my tummy, but I do have a few on my thighs. 

Swelling: I've had like 1 or 2 days where I felt like my feet were swollen at the end of the day. I also think my hands are a little swollen, they don't look it, but my wedding ring is tighter than usual. 

Maternity clothes: I'm either in dresses (both maternity and non-maternity) or I'm in maternity pants/shorts. I don't know how people can possibly wear pants during pregnancy that aren't maternity. 

Belly button: It is trying SO HARD to stay an innie, but right now it's almost flat. 

Sleep: See my Three Stages of Pregnancy Sleep post. 

Food cravings/aversions: This whole pregnancy I've not really had any cravings for one specific thing over and over. I have been easily persuaded by commercials to want foods though. I haven't eaten anything I'd say is particularly strange. Although, I'm not a big ice cream eater, and I MAY have eaten a whole pint of Cookies & Cream ice cream in one sitting the other day... I may have... ;-)

Movement: Absolutely. She's moving around in there all the time. I love it. It's also like having an alien inside me, but it's cool nonetheless. 

Labor signs: None at all. 

What I miss: Being able to lay/sleep any way I want to. 

What I'm loving: Feeling her move around. 

What I'm looking forward to: Having my baby shower and doing the rest of the shopping so I can really feel prepared. 

Milestones: Only 10 weeks left!

In other news, I'm probably the most uncomfortable I've been all pregnancy, which is to be expected. I have a whole human and human supporting habitat in my abdomen, that's bound to cause some achy joints, and it is!

Seven Months In - How's that Vision Board Treating You?

On New Years Eve 2013 I created a Vision Board instead of making a New Years Resolution and hung it in my boudoir so I could see it when getting dressed every day. 

Since we're more than half-way into the year, I thought now was a good time to to check-in and see how/if my vision's are coming true. My main focuses of my vision board were home, relationship and physical health, and....BABIES! lol

Well we know I have a baby on board, so that portion of my vision for 2014 is on it's way. 

Regarding my home I wanted to put more energy into it. This has been happening a bit. We've done work on the guest room that will become the nursery. We got a new living room set, and we upgraded the look of our laundry room replacing some broke down sliding doors with curtains.

I also wanted the love between my husband and I to flourish. Pregnancy is usually a time that can tear couples apart, but we've been blessed to share even more laughs and good times than we had before. 2013 was SO HARD on us, and 2014 has definitely blessed us. 

I wanted 2014 to be filled with healthy home cooked meals and healthy living. This one I need to work a little harder on lol. Healthy living takes effort, and even more of an effort when you're pregnant, fatigued, and have a really wacky appetite. This vision will take some more work. Here's to an increase in healthy eating and exercise. 

Did you make a Vision Board or set a New Years Resolution?
 How is it going?
