30 Week Bumpdate

How far along: 30 weeks 
Size of baby: Butternut Squash
Baby’s size and weight: 17 in, 3.1 lbs
My total weight gain: 37 pounds. Huge jump from last week and I’m going to chalk it up to the Halloween candy leftovers. My B. I’ll be better this week…
Baby’s development: 
-Gaining half a pound a week
-Brain developing daily and is starting to look more like a brain
-Can regulate body temperature and begin shedding lanugo 
Stretch marks: None.
Maternity clothes: Yes. The worst part? The tatas. I’m never comfortable! 

Gender: Girl.
Movement: Yes. I got it on video this week and sent it to Z 🙂 

Sleep: Still taking Unisom nightly but was up from 3-5 a.m. the other night. I’m also trying to nap when Nolan does (if I can fall asleep) because I know that will be rare once the baby arrives. 
What I miss: Living in my own house. I’m so thankful to be spending time with my parents but I miss having my own space. 

Food cravings: Nothing specific but I’ve been SUPER hungry all the time.  
Symptoms: just feeling large…super hungry and tired too.
Nolan is: getting four teeth and has had a cold… needless to say it’s been rough on both of us. He’s also “potty training” which really means he goes in there when he wants and the rest of the time he tells me he has to go after he’s already gone in his diaper. In due time…

Zach is: kicking butt in school (top of his class) and looking forward to Thanksgiving here 🙂 
What I’m looking forward to: Zach coming home and squaring away housing. We should know more the week before Christmas… fingers crossed!  
Best moments: just spending time with my booger daily. He may drive me crazy but he makes me so darn happy I tell ya.

Funny things: Nolan decided to blast “WHOOP There It Is” and break it down while we waited for our oil change. He seriously cracks me up on a daily basis. Oh and him thinking eating ice cream was the funniest thing in the world. It’s the little things in life I suppose 🙂

Not so funny things: I’ve been really stressed out the past few weeks. There’s some stuff going on and with the holidays, moving, and awaiting our baby girl, I’ve been struggling to keep it together. Praying everything just falls into place.

This adorable ring also arrived… finally! I ordered it off Groopdealz 6 weeks ago and it showed up at my door yesterday. If you haven’t shopped on Groopdealz yet, you probably should; especially with the holidays coming up, you can save some mad money.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! My side bar is looking pretty empty so if you want to sponsor this month, enter wreckingball for 50% off ANY ad space! You can thank Miley for that one 😉
