30 Weeks - Pregnancy #3

Each Sunday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week.  I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly.  I did this with my pregnancies with Hadley and with Jack, as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on. 

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along:  30 weeks - Third Trimester

Size of baby:  Baby Girl is around 17 inches crown to feet and weighs as much as a butternut squash (about 3 pounds)

Total weight gain/loss:  So far, I'm up a lot.  A lot.  20 pounds at least.

Maternity clothes:  Anything that still fits over my belly and my behind.

Gender:  A sweet baby girl

Movement:  Not as much movement during the day, but during my NSTs I feel her a lot.  She has been "stuck" on my right side, head up for a longggggg time.  I'm REALLY hoping she turns soon.

Sleep:  It's ok.  I'll live :)

What I miss:  Sleeping on my back and sleeping through the night without waking up to make two or three trips to the bathroom

Cravings:  Sweets

Symptoms: Acid reflux, the nesting urge

Exercise: I just walked once.  With Jack running fever the first part of the week, and The Husband and I being sick the middle of the week through today, I have had no extra energy to exert.

Belly Button in or out: It's flat, but a little out.

Wedding ring on or off: On :)

Happy or moody most of the time:  It was a tough week with all of us feeling run down.

Looking forward to:  Um, Baby Girl changing positions.

Best moment this week: Another ultrasound of my girl, even if I am getting tired of being at the doctor's office so often. :)


  1. We hope you all feel better very soon! Love you.

  2. Great picture, Joy! I am thrilled about your expanding family. God is so good! Love, Mary Beth

    1. Thank you, sweet Mary Beth! I miss hugging your neck!
