The 30 Week Bumpdate!

Thursday, January 12, 2012



**All dressed up for our night out on Wednesday...dinner with Jeff' and his sales
team to celebrate his big win--such a fun time!! {Dress via Francesca's}

How Far Along? 30 weeks, 6 days...only 65 days to go!
Size of Baby Caroline? She is a head of cabbage...15.7 inches long and 2.75 pounds
Maternity Clothes? Yes and no. I've started wearing a lot of leggings because my belly starts to itch when I wear full-panel jeans for a long period of time...getting tighter in there I suppose.
Weight Gain? 23 pounds...emails say I am going to gain between .5 and 1 pound each week-yikes! All of that better be going to ensuring Caroline is a chunky little monkey.
Stretch Marks? None yet my dear friends...I thank my lucky stars each and every day.
Gender? Girl.
Sleep? I rediscovered the power of a little "help" this week. I have rarely medicated myself throughout pregnancy, so I took 1 regular Tylenol the other night and slept for 8 hours, only having to get up once to head to the bathroom...I felt like a new woman!
Food Cravings? Tangerines, peanut butter, cereal, and sugar free ice cream bars.
What I Miss? My normal energy. Jeff is helping with chores because I am getting tired {although I think he is enjoying my more "laid back view" of housework}. Normally I am OCD about putting things away and everything being in it's proper place, but I just can't seem to keep it up like the "old me".
Symptoms? Sleepiness, leg cramps in the middle of the night, ever-growing belly, food aversions {the thought of red meat makes me sick lately}, and itchiness.
Belly Button: Still hanging there...it's not out, but it's definitely not in either.
Best Moment of the Week? As cliche as this sounds, getting daily deliveries from the UPS man have made me so happy! The bedding is here, the glider will be delivered next week, more fun decor has been purchased to hang on the walls, and we selected a paint color. This weekend is our family baby shower and I cannot wait for Sunday!

  16. You look amazing! Love the pumps!
    Just a suggestion to help with the leg cramps...I know it sounds crazy, but my mom always says if you put a bar of soap under your fitted sheet, it will make the leg cramps stop. (You can cut a "sliver", and it will work just as well).
    Enjoy being showered with love this weekend!
