I'm 30 weeks

I'm 30 weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 30 Weeks

Size of baby: Head of lettuce

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Too much to track!

Gender: GIRL!!!!

Movement: She is pretty active! Right now she is head down. Let's hope she stays that way for delivery!

Sleep: Getting up to use the bathroom every 3-4 hours, but overall still sleeping well

What I miss: Wishing I could go shopping for this little lady and hang out with my friends for all of their kiddos birthday parties

Cravings: Still loving the watermelon. Also, have been eating more ice cream! Chase is loving that he gets to eat ice cream everytime I do!

Symptoms: Fatigue and puffiness. Contractions are continuing. Unfortunately, I did not have quite as good of a check up this last week. My cervical length went down by a centimeter and I had some funneling. I had to get betamethasone shots to help develop her lungs in case of early delivery. I will now be going twice a week for check ups.
Best Moment this week: I passed my 3 hour glucose tolerance test! Woo hoo!

29 weeks!!!

I am growing by leaps and bounds! I can't believe we have made it this far and I am still at home. Yeah!! Bed rest at home is so much better than bed rest in the hospital. I get to see my little man all the time, which is amazing! I love being able to spend so much time with him and watching him grow and change. He is becoming so independent in everything he does. He is also so smart. He comes up with the funniest comments. One day he was climbing on the ottoman and fell down. I asked him if he fell and was hurt and he replied, "No, I'm stretching!" Nice cover! It will be hard to leave him to go back to work in several months.

I just got the results of my glucose screen and am bummed to find out I failed the test. Now I have to go back and do the 3 hour test. I had to do that when I was pregnant with Chase and it was awful. At least then I had the hospital bed to lay in while I was waiting. This time I will have to sit in the office. Yuck! Also, found out I am anemic and will be starting on iron. I have my next OB appointment next week so we will get to see how baby is doing at that appointment.
