30 weeks and counting…

CucumberHow far along are you? 30 weeks

Total weight gain/loss so far: I’m back where I started with the doctor.

Wearing any maternity clothes? Yes. They are all that fit without showing off the belly.

How’s the sleep? When Jax cooperates, it is pretty good.

Best moment of the week: Watching Peanut do a jig and make my belly move so dramatically. And Jon got to feel his first good kick (Peanut doesn’t like to cooperate and usually stops moving as soon as he feels his daddy’s hand on my belly.)

Do you miss anything? Sub sandwiches

How much is baby moving? He’s moving a lot. I predict that we have a future gymnast on our hands.

What are the food cravings like? Chips and salsa (Chili’s), chocolate (ice cream, Drumsticks)

Is anything making you queasy or sick? Not this week. 🙂

Have you started to show yet? Yep. Nice little bump working its way out there.

Boy or girl? It’s a BOY!

Any labor signs? No. And hopefully not for many weeks yet.

Is the belly button in or out? Still in, but getting even flatter.

Are the wedding rings on or off? Both? It depends on the day.

What’s the mood? Pretty good.

Loaf of breadHow big is the baby? Peanut should be measuring about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long and weigh between 2.5 and 3.8 pounds…or, the size of an cucumber. (Or, for you guys who have “no idea what these fruits are” [as said by Jon], the size of a loaf of bread.)

What’s baby up to this week? His skin is getting smoother; however, his brain is getting wrinklier. It’s making space for all of the things he’ll learn. He is also strong enough to grasp a finger.

What are you looking forward to? 30 week check-up on Monday! Get to hear the heartbeat again (that always makes me feel better).
