Week 30

Tuesday, August 27, 2013


How far along? 30 weeks
Weight gain: 18 pounds at my 30 wk, 2 day appt
Maternity clothes? bellyband, maternity jeans, maternity shirts
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: Mostly good. I've been tossing and turning a bit more to get comfortable. Although I'm not sure getting comfortable is actually possible at this point.
Best moment this week: Lots :)
*Spending Thursday with my mom and sister scoping out garage sales
*Spending Saturday poolside with one of my besties, Catie
* Spending Sunday at the fair with my love. It was incredibly hot, but we made it through the day by taking lots of breaks and drinking lots of water. While there a woman came up to me and told me her group of friends had been talking about me, and she just HAD to let me know I was the cutest pregnant lady she had ever seen. Ironically enough, I had a breakdown before leaving for the fair telling Pete I look horrible in all my clothes and feel huge. Lol.

Miss anything? sushi
Movement: yes, lots of rolling
Food Cravings: None really. It has been too hot to crave food.
Anything making you queasy or sick: no
Symptoms: My allergies are still horrible, but I broke down this week and took claritin which is definitely helping - just not quite enough. I am also experiencing a little mid-back pain.   
Gender: Girl
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: slightly out
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood: still HAPPY with a side of meltdown
Looking forward to: our belly photos and upcoming showers 

Week 29

Monday, August 19, 2013

How far along? 29 weeks
Maternity clothes? maternity clothes and some regular clothes
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: hit and miss. some nights good - some nights horrible.
Best moment this week: 
Attending our first prenatal class. It was from 9-4 and covered birth, infant feeding, and newborn care. It was a long day but definitely worth it. Pete and I feel much more confident now and will likely feel even more confident after our labor skills workshop.

Tubing down the Cannon River with some great friends to celebrate Andy's 30th Birthday! We had perfect weather and a ton of fun. The only thing missing to make the day perfect was my hubby. Oh, and being able to drink ;)

Miss anything? drinking with friends
Movement: Yes, lots and lots!
Food Cravings: ice cream, brownies, cheetos - I've been really hungry this week. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: no
Symptoms: HORRIBLE allergies. I've never experienced allergies this bad in my life, and according to the pollen forecast for the week, I shouldn't expect them to clear up any time soon. I haven't taken anything yet. I've just been using the netty pot, but I am VERY near taking benedryl or claritin. I am miserable. 
Gender: Girl
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: slightly out
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood: HAPPY - and occasionally emotional. The other day I started crying because I couldn't find a parking spot at Chipotle. Now, I know this is foolish and knew very well it was foolish at the time, but I just couldn't seem to help myself.
Looking forward to: The State Fair. I am usually very good about not eating unhealthy food at the fair, but I might have to make an exception this year. Sweet Martha's cookies, ice cream, and french fries are calling my name!

Week 28

Monday, August 12, 2013

How far along? 28 Weeks
Maternity clothes? mostly maternity clothes with a few regular clothes mixed in
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: sleeping great for the most part. I occasionally wake up to adjust or go to the bathroom.
Best moment this week: 
* Being part of Michelle Dbl L and Brian's wedding! It was a magical day full of love, laughter, and of course dancing! I danced my booty off and am incredibly thankful for the kind hands of Kelsey and Pete who rubbed my feet so I could dance even more!

* I have been eyeing up an amazing aqua fossil purse ever since I saw a woman toting it in Caribou a few weeks ago, and guess what, Pete surprised me with it this week! I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to be married to such an amazing man!!! <3

* Officially rolling into the third trimester - I can't express how excited I am to meet my sweet baby girl!
Miss Anything? soft cheeses and alcohol
 all the time, especially at night. Our little girl must really love music - every time the organ played during the Crea/Tapley wedding ceremony, she would start moving around!
Food cravings: nope
Anything making you queasy or sick: not really
Gender: Girl - and yes, she has a name! We're just not sharing it yet :)
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: occasional heartburn, leg cramps, and I am VERY tired. I found out on Friday that my iron levels are low though, so I am starting a supplement which should help (fingers crossed!)
Belly Button in or out? flat
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy- although the random mood swings are happening a bit more frequently. I started crying the other day because Pete was annoying me (sorry Babe!)
