30 Weeks Pregnant | Bump Update

As of yesterday I have officially hit 30 weeks! I'd been looking forward to this milestone for a while. There's just something about 10, 20, and 30 weeks that make it special. Plus the week countdown has reached the single digits which makes it all feel so soon!

We had an ultrasound yesterday to check on the size of baby and make sure she's not falling behind. My bump had been measuring kind of small at the last appointment. Everything is perfect though! In fact her head was measuring at about 33 weeks and legs measuring at 32. So she's gonna have a big round head and long legs just like her parents! I loved getting to see her sweet face on the monitor. She was sucking her thumb which is quite possibly one of the cutest things ever!!!
. . .
How far along? 30 Weeks + 1 Day
Total weight gain: I gained back 8 of the 28 lbs I had lost! So now we're only at -20 
Maternity clothes? I bought my first pair of maternity jeans on Monday. (Less than $8 at Old Navy!) I'm still on the hunt for some shorts though.
Stretch marks? Just my hip/love handle area
Sleep: As normal as it can be with a husband on the night shift.
Best moment: Seeing her cute face at the ultrasound appointment
Miss anything? Not really
Movement: She moving like crazy right when I wake up now
Food cravings: Wendy's chicken nuggets and BBQ sauce
Anything making you queasy or sick: When aren't I queasy or sick?!
Gender: Still a girl
Labor signs: Nope, but I think I'm starting to experience braxton hicks occasionally. I'm not sure though.
Symptoms: Just the usual
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off?  On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy :)
Looking forward to: Setting up her crib in a few weeks

Just like my appointments I'll be updating every two weeks now, so keep an eye out for that!
