30 Weeks

Size of baby: Head Of Cabbage ( Almost 3 lbs and 15.7 inches)
Total Weight Gain: 17 lbs
Continuing symptoms: Sore feet, frequent bathroom visits, heartburn, sore hips.
New symptoms this week: It is starting to be uncomfortable to walk normally

Sleep: Sleep is getting more restless and uncomfortable. I usually wake up twice to go to the bathroom. I am trying so hard to sleep on my left side, but I always slept on my right side before being pregnant so I find myself wanting to sleep on the right when I come back to bed in the middle of the night. Dreams are frequent and bizzare, and I don't feel like I am sleeping as well because of them. But in the big picture I think I am still sleeping pretty well.
Maternity Clothes: Love them. Haven't grown out of anything yet.
What I'm Eating: Less than normal. My stomach does not hold as much as it used to, and I feel VERY uncomfortable if I eat too much. I also cannot eat leaning over (like at the coffee table, we do this alot). It squishes my belly too much and it makes me feel insta-full.
Cravings: Coffee with TONNES of cream and some sugar. So weird because I don't normally drink alot of coffee cause it  bugs my stomach.  I am really trying to drink as little as possible.

Movement: Baby is feeling more and more alien-like in there. Along with the regular kicks, I am starting to feel limps press outward and move around. I think the baby is too big to do the flips like it used to, but sometimes I can feel the whole body move around at once, it is a very unique feeling!

Special pregnancy moments: 30 weeks! I am 3/4 of the way to my due date. In some ways it seems so fast, but in other ways it feels like I have been pregnant for a long time. I am SO looking forward to meeting our little baby in 10 weeks or so. I try not to think about it too much though, because then I become very impatient and 10 weeks seems like 10 years away.

I also finished prepping all my cloth diapers this week. I think I am finally all ready to go in that area. I actually have been dreaming about them because I can't wait to use them for real!

I mentioned to Eric this week that I am starting to feel really pregnant. I can feel my belly stretching, and eating, sleeping and walking are all different than normal. It is wonderful. I am SO glad to be able to have my own set of pregnancy "complaints". I WANT to feel pregnant. I have prayed for this for years, and so far it has been much easier that I thought it would be.
