Pregnancy 2.0: 30 Weeks

30 weeks

Size of Baby: Baby N is about the size of a summer cantaloup, according to my pregnancy app, which is funny because it looks like I’m smuggling watermelons under my shirt. Really, she feels like she’s closer to the size of a watermelon sometimes too, especially when she decides to set up camp in my ribs.

Feeling: Okay. I’ve been having motivation issues lately and my aching body certainly isn’t helping. Lugging our vacuum up the stairs to vacuum the carpet is a chore in its own right. Things that are also becoming a challenge to do are: Shoulder-checking while driving (can one put tow mirrors on a VW Golf?), getting up off the couch, and reaching things set far back on deep counters. Blarg. Kyle says I’ve complained a lot more during this pregnancy and that doesn’t surprise me one bit.

Craving: Candy! My sweet tooth is getting out of control and while I’m trying SO hard to watch my sugar intake, it’s hard! While at the grocery store on Saturday I bought a bunch of candy from the bulk section, and on Monday I bought more. Shame on me …



Other: I had my prenatal appointment on Monday and all looked great, according to my doctor! I now start seeing him every two weeks, which is a huge, “Holy crap, this pregnancy is FLYING by” moment. Isla seems to enjoy coming to the appointments with me as well; she stands on the little stool while the doctor checks Baby’s heart rate and it’s the most adorable thing. Hard to believe that in just a couple of months we’ll become a family of 4 …

We’re also slowly plugging away at getting the nursery all set up again. There’s a bunch of paint to touch up and we’ve yet to build Isla’s new dresser so we can put her old one in the nursery, but we’re getting there. I also need to buy some curtains to hang because the amount of sunlight that comes into the kids’ rooms is crazy. It’s pretty surreal seeing the crib all set up again!
