Baby Hughes #2 - 30 Week Bumpdate

  • How far along are you? 30 Weeks!  We only have a maximum of 10 weeks left as a family of 3!  That is absolutely crazy to think about!
  • How I'm feeling: I am definitely not feeling as great as I was at this point with Caleb.  This pregnancy has been more difficult on my body, but overall, we are both healthy and happy and that is all that matters to us.

  • Total weight gain:  I have gained 12 pounds this pregnancy so far.  I haven't been trying to watch what I am gaining as much this go around as I was with Caleb, but I think chasing after a very active 18-month old toddler has helped keep some of the poundage off.  Also, this little babe still makes me nauseous 90% of the time so eating isn't as appetizing as well.
  • How big is baby? Baby is size of a cucumber today!  He is between 15 - 17 inches long and weighs approximately 3 pounds right now.
  • Maternity clothes: I think this is a silly question.  Obviously I'm in maternity clothes still, have been since week, what? 11? ha!
  • Sleep:  Sleeping is probably the thing that has changed the most between my pregnancies.  I am in so much pain by the time I get to lay down at night from running around all day that sleep is hard to get.  I can only sleep on my sides this time and my back is constantly on fire.  Rolling from one side to the other is also nearly impossible.

  • Best moment this week: I went and bought the fabric for his nursery bedding!  We are having it made ourselves since I couldn't find anything I loved for his room that wasn't $1000!  I can't wait to start getting his nursery put together!
  • Movement: Baby E is definitely starting to move around a lot more these days but he is still a huge tumbler!  He moves his bums from the top of my ribs to my pelvis multiple times a day.  He also only resides on my right side.  Some days I wish he would move to the left to give my right side a mini break.
  • Food cravings: Soda and fruit.  All day, everyday please!
  • Food aversions: I don't have any aversions still, there are just more times then not that I don't have an appetite.
  • Belly button in or out:  We are definitely getting flat in the belly button department.  Caleb is completely fascinated by it.
  • What I am thankful for: I am thankful that we are still having a healthy pregnancy.  I am thankful that this babe moves around enough every day to let me know that he is happy and healthy in there.
  • What I'm looking forward to: I am looking forward to putting together Baby E's nursery.  We have yet to move anything out of the room that is currently our guest room.  We need to take everything out of there, paint the walls and decorate.  We only have 10 weeks! EEEEKKK!
