30 weeks!!! OMG!

How Far Along? 30 weeks and 2 days!!! is the final countdown! Hopefully I will never have to count past the 30's (40 exactly is ok...but thanks! Come on out by then baby girl!)

Maternity Clothes? Some. Some regular stretchy stuff.

Stretch Marks? No. Still hoping to avoid those! Hoping its genetic(my mom did NOT get them with all 4 kids!)

Sleep? No eating before bed seems to help the heartburn. I'm waking up with a really sore low back most days!

Best Moment of the Week? hitting 30 weeks! ordering the bedding! (now we just need the crib to put the bedding in!)

Movement? Crazy awesome movement! Had a freak out on Saturday...hubs has 2 friends who announced they were 3 months pregnant (without even "trying") and then in my random retarded jealousy and fear struck and I started panicking that I couldn't feel the baby move anymore and that they were all going to have perfect babies and i was going to have a still born. I over-reacted. She gave me a good kick session Saturday night! Phew! I hate that I am still so utterly jealous when I hear of people in real life being pregnant...I am still not confident in this pregnancy even though I'm so far along! oh...and i'm jealous of people who are pregnant with number 2...i may never get that chance. Geez...why am i'm worried about #2 when I don't even have #1 in my arms yet! I get so sad and frustrated at myself!

Food Cravings? Chocolate is soooo good, yet soooo bad (for my heartburn!!!)

Gender? GIRL

What I miss? sleeping without heartburn!

What I'm looking forward to? Thanksgiving weekend this week! Yeah! I'm excited to show my sisters some of the baby's crazy movements and to just be with my family! I'm also getting excited to buy our crib and get the nursery fully set up!

Weekly Wisdom: Not much.

Milestones: 30 weeks!

Emotions: Feeling good right now! But I can still get pretty irritated pretty quick!

Will get hubs to take some belly pics and put them up later!

Ciao for now!


  1. Congratulations on 30 weeks. You will be amazed at how fast the next 8 to 10 weeks go by. I still get nervous about movement at 38 weeks so I completely understand your nervousness. Wishing you the best the next 10 weeks.

  2. 30 weeks already!?!? How come our pregnancies are flying by but when we weren't pregnant all our pregnant friends were pregnant FOREVER!! :)

  3. I know how you feel about the jealousy with other people's pregnancy. I finally started feeling that less after my daughter was born, but it still never goes away completely. At least not for me. As far as the worry about this pregnancy, I wanted to share a post I wrote about it. I found that this exercise really helped me to put my worry in it's place. If you want to check it out, here it is:

    I hope you can keep the stretch marks at bay. I didn't have any until just two weeks before my daughter was born. Now my stomach looks like a war zone. I'm just saying... you never know until the end...

    Good luck! Congrats on "turning 30!"

  4. OMG is right!!! Holy crap!

    Re: the other pregnant ladies. I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN. Yes, my intense jealousy toward the randoms on the street has SLIGHTLY subsided. But when coworkers and friends announce stuff I totally freak out and assume that BECAUSE they are pregnant, now they have taken up the healthy baby and pregnancy spot in the world and I am destined to doom. It makes NO SENSE. I think we are just hard-wired this way because of so many months of pain and despair.

    But seriously, your baby girl is doing awesome and you are counting down to her birth day (almost single digi weeks left!). Zen zen zen zen. xo

  5. i love it that she kicked you when you were having those thoughts bc it seems like baby's way of saying "i'm STILL HERE MOMMY!!!!". but i hear you on your reaction to normal ppl's pregnancies. i just went to a wedding over the weekend, and i'm terrified that they'll start trying to get pregnant immediately. ugh ... i wonder when these feelings will go away ... maybe never :o)

  6. wow, 30 weeks, omigosh!! you're 3/4 there, that's so amazing :-D

  7. 30 weeks! OMG! You are getting close! Yes, need belly pics :)
