So I realized that I've been basically a week behind in my posts. Today I'm 30 weeks, so I'm skipping a week to get back on track ;).
Weeks along: 30
What's new with baby: Baby M is almost 3 pounds and 16-17 inches long! Since he's been packing on the pounds, he's been shedding the all-over body hair that was keeping him warm. He's making his way head-down to get ready for D-day.
Maternity Clothes: Yes
Symptoms: Definitely getting sore in my lower back after working out and slowing down overall, but otherwise feeling good!
Cravings: Cherry almond ice cream. Nate and I picked some up Friday night and I was in heaven.
Workouts: A 40 minute elliptical session on Tuesday, 20 minutes on the elliptical/15 minute walk/weights Wednesday, and a BodyPump class Thursday. Surprisingly the elliptical feels amazing, but walking on the treadmill has been a little painful as I get some round ligament pain if I go faster than 3 mph.
Baby Purchases: We may have traded in my car for a small SUV :-). Nate has tried to convince me since I first got pregnant that my compact car was not going to be car seat friendly. Well, a couple weeks ago when we tried putting the car seat in the middle of the car and taking it out, I realized he was 100% right. If we weren't giants (I'm 5'10" and Nate is 6'3") I think we could have worked around it, but it's definitely nice having a car that we don't have to squat in and out of.
Concerns/Issues: I think making it through the first couple weeks. Healing after labor and delivery all while taking care of a newborn still sounds like a daunting task. We're so excited to meet him, but I'm definitely a person that needs sleep.
Missing: Mobility. I know it's only going to get worse before it gets better, but I definitely feel like I've reached the "beached whale" stage of pregnancy.
Sleep: Hit and miss, and the weird dreams continue. Last night I had a dream I wanted to go back to college this semester to get my MBA, but I was stressing out because I realized I'd be having a baby halfway through the semester.
Looking forward to: Our 3-D ultrasound this Wednesday. I can't wait to see his little face :-).
