Week 30

How far along:  30 weeks!

Total weight gain: 14 lbs.
Maternity clothes?  Belly band and hair tie trick still with my jeans. I have a few maternity shirts that are super comfy. I can't wait until school's over so I can wear leggings all day! I hope I can stay motivated to get ready for the day, but who says that leggings can't be cute?
Stretch marks: None yet! I've been using more of the Palmer's stretch mark stuff when I get nervous about it. My doctor says that my weight gain has been very gradual so my skin is doing okay so far! yay!
Best moment this week: Stafford's high school friends threw us a baby shower in Utah! It was so fun to see them again and play games. We got things we need and the cutest little outfits. It was absolutely perfect. We also put up Christmas!! The tree looks gorgeous! Why does everything cost money? I want to just buy everything Christmasy and everything baby girly.
Miss anything?  Traveling comfortably! We stayed at Stafford's house for Thanksgiving and normally that bed is so comfy, but I was just dying this trip. I needed my memory foam pad and pillow and firm pillow for my legs.  I'm so needy! I wonder what Christmas will be like.. haha 2 weeks of not my bed?!
Movement? She was going crazy this week. Her kicks got to be painful.. is that normal? I love it because it just means she's still alive. That's always a good sign.
Food cravings: I just love those sweets still. I don't know if it's an actual craving, but sour gummy worms sound so good now all the time. Ice cream too.. And anything chocolate peanut butter. That's all :) 
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, but my legs have been feeling quite restless. It gets very uncomfortable. AND I definitely have heartburn I think.. if heartburn is like stomach acid and you feel like you're going to throw up because your stomach is overflowing- then I have heartburn.
Have you started to show: Uhhhh.. YES. I always wonder if I'm too big for how far along I am, but I guess you can't really compare. Everyone's different right?
Gender: Girl!!!
Labor signs: Maybe some braxton hicks, but they could just be cramps..  haha I don't know?
Belly button in or out? in, but one side always sticks out.
Wedding ring on or off? on.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy happy. I'm feeling good about my preparation so far plus it's almost Christmas!
Looking forward to: Getting done with school so I can focus on this baby!

McKinlee sure does love my ribs.. Anytime I try to push her down she starts kicking like crazy. I just love it. Except for the discomfort.


  1. I feel you on the traveling comfortably. I had to go back home on a 12 hour trip when I was in my last trimester!! Blah!!

    1. Ahhh that would be horrible. We're breaking up our trip so it'll only be 5 hours at most hopefully!
