Bumpdate: 30 Weeks

Somehow I went from 10 to 30 weeks in the blink of an eye!  I cannot believe it's mid-February already and this baby will be here in just over two months!  Nor can I believe I'm only ten weeks from my due date and seven weeks from being considered "full term".  I'm definitely getting more excited (and less nervous) as my BFFs recently welcome their new babies into the world!  (Congrats to high school bestie, Sarah, on the birth of Adrian Michael, and college bestie, Casey, on the birth of Lincoln Norval!)  Still nervous, but excited seeing all the newborn pictures and hearing their birth stories. :)

We went for our level 2 sonogram last Friday and thankfully, everything looked great!  The technician checked the brain ventricles first and foremost and both measured well under the 10mm mark that Brantley's measured at this point.  Everything else appeared normal, as well, and as far as we know, that was our last sonogram before Baby's arrival.  The technician went a little overboard and printed about 15 photos for us, so I scanned eight of them below.

I also got the official word that I passed my glucose test.  Thank.goodness.  Back for another OB appointment this Friday!  As far as how I'm feeling, not much has changed.  Same symptoms, though I feel much larger than I did at this point with Brantley.

How Far Along: 30 weeks

Size of Baby: ~15.7 inches, 3 pounds; the size of a large cabbage

Gender: BOY

Weight Gain: Still not sure.  Weighing myself hasn't been a top priority.

Food Cravings: Nothing specific

Food Aversions: None

Movement: Same as last week.  He's pretty active in there!  Sore right-side ribs, oftentimes in the evenings, and kicks to my bladder.

Sleep: Sleeping great!

Clothing: Same. 

Other Pregnancy Symptoms: Same - acid reflux, Braxton Hicks, uncomfortableness, feeling the urge to pee often, even ten minutes after I go.  I don't think I'm swelling too much yet, however, and my rings still fit!

What I Miss: Being able to move quickly and easily. Being able to easily stand up from a sitting position. Not feeling so exhausted by day's end.

Best Moment: Learning at our sono that Baby is developing normally.  I feel like this pregnancy has gone much smoother than my first (at least in recent weeks).

Whoa Moment: Buying a new bottle of pre-natal vitamins (a 90-count) and relaxing that once they're gone, Baby will be here!

Looking Forward To: The ten-week countdown is on! And spring. Definitely spring. Warmer weather, lighter clothes, and walks around our neighborhood.
