{30 Week Bump}

How far along?: 30 weeks! With each week that passes, I become more shocked by how fast all of this is happening. How am I 7.5 months? I'm not ready lol.
Total weight gain?: 20 pounds!
Size of baby?: Baby is the size of a zucchini! 15.7 inches and 2.89 pounds, and I believe with my whole heart that she is on the bigger end of all the generic stats. She must have legs for days like her daddy because I feel them all the time-in my ribs, in my belly button, EVERYWHERE.
Maternity clothes?: Just my trusty leggings and sweats. Most of my regular shirts still fit, just none of those crop tops I was rocking right before I got pregnant. ;) hahahahaha.
Stretch marks?: Not really, but mine from Henry are kinda peeking their way back through. Ugh.
Sleep: Sleeping as much as I can, naps included!!! I've been trying to drink plenty of water, for my health and so that I don't cramp up all night long. It was too intense, I'd much rather pee all day long from drinking so much water. 
Best moment this week: Probably doing a little more shopping for sis' side of the room and Sean getting it all put up for me. <3 I CANNOT wait for my baby shower this weekend. I just know my bestie is going to make everything so perfect and I'm so excited to see all of my people!!! 
Miss anything?: Mostly wine and I could do without the sharp stabbing pains down below with every step I take. TMI? :-P
Movement?: 100% of the time. She's what wakes me up, what keeps me from falling asleep and what keeps me alert throughout the day. "Sleepy mama? WELL WAKE UP! Hi-yah!"
Food cravings: SWEETS, but that's pretty standard in my world. Nothing ever sounds particularly good. 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: All of it. Everything makes me nauseous.
Gender: GIRL <3 <3 <3
Labor signs: Still some intense cramps and practice contractions, plus those sharp stabbing pains in my vah-jay-jay that are letting me know that my cervix is starting to stretch and dilate.
Symptoms: I'm a walking cliche. I waddle, I walk with my hand bracing my hip, I stop in my tracks when I get a sharp pain, I have acid reflux like no other, I cramp, I cry, I have to stop to catch my breath. I'm very pregnant lol. 
Belly button in or out?: In, but right on the edge. I'm thinking it's going to stay that way just like it did with Henry.
Happy or moody most of the time?: Still both. I'm very happy and excited, but I have my moments of weakness. Being pregnant is hard. Having everything out of whack is rough. I'm starting to feel a little unprepared. Not materialistically. Babies don't really require much stuff, just a place to sleep, a breast and TLC. I'm more worried about doing the entire newborn stage over again. Henry was TOUGH. He was definitely a "hard" baby, and I'm kind of dreading that lol. I know that's no way to think about things, but I'm just terrified that she'll be restless and cry nonstop like Henry did. He never slept and he was so fussy, all day long. I'm a little intimidated-I won't lie. Plus I learned that a restless Melissa is not a fun Melissa, so lets all pray that she's a sleeper and all will be well. :) That probably sounds terrible, but I'm always honest Abe. haha. Don't get me wrong though, I am crazy excited to meet her and hold her and she will be just what our family needs, just a little nerves!

I can't wait to share my shower with you guys next week and maybe share a little bit of Henry and Luce's shared room. <3
xx,
Melissa Loren
