30 Weeks

We took this on the day of Emery's birthday party!

How Far Along: 30 weeks and 3 days, It feels kind of crazy to be in the 30s!

Size of Baby: According to The Bump, the baby is about 15.7 inches long and weighs about 2.9 pounds. She's going to grow about half an inch and half a pound every week from here on out.

Gender: It's a girl!! Her name is Sadie and we're still leaning towards "Hope" for her middle name. We honestly haven't talked about her middle name much at all in the last couple of weeks! It's been super busy around here!

Maternity Clothes: YES! And pajama pants and t-shirts when I'm at home! I had to order some spring/summer things because it's getting warm here and all of my maternity clothes are fall and winter. I have to say, I prefer fall and winter maternity clothes...more coverage, please! I know I'll probably be wearing mostly maternity clothes most of the summer as well, since my due date is at the end of May.

Wedding Rings On/Off: On, but I do feel like I've had a little swelling...nothing major in my hands.

Stretch Marks: Maybe a couple of small ones around my belly button. I'm afraid more stretch marks are inevitable. I still have a lot of growing to do! 

Sleep: It's been pretty good again. I think I wake up when I move, but I go right back to sleep.

Cravings/Aversions: Still nothing super specific...I'm just enjoying eating in general. Sweets are a favorite, but that's pretty normal for me! :)

Symptoms: Thankfully, that crazy week-long headache is gone!! I'm still dealing with plugged ears daily, mild heartburn every now and then, and shortness of breath. I always feel out of breath, even if I'm just laying down!! I'm just generally uncomfortable now, too. I feel like I've got a major waddle and getting up and down is just the opposite of graceful! I've also had a little bit of swelling in my feet and legs. I had a *lot* of swelling with Emery...my feet were *so* swollen, so I'm really hoping it doesn't get that bad again!

Movement: She moves a *lot*!! We can see her from the outside a lot now, too, which is fun to watch!

Mood: I'm feeling good! I am starting to think more and more about how things will be different when Sadie gets here, so I'm trying to really soak in my time with Emery!

What I Miss: Moving around easily!!

Looking Forward To: I'm excited to get more done on the nursery. We've been focused on Emery's birthday the last couple of weeks, so we haven't done much at all in Sadie's room. I'm working on finding some nursery letters on Etsy so we can put her name above her crib. It would be a lot easier if I wasn't so indecisive {and picky!}!

Best Moment This Week: We had a doctor's appointment yesterday, and hearing that sweet heartbeat is always a precious moment! Everything looked good, except Sadie and I had a major growth spurt in the last two weeks. Two weeks ago, I was measuring 28 weeks, and this week I was measuring 32 weeks. I also gained 6 pounds in 2 weeks. Wow. I honestly expected it, though. I feel like I've grown so much in the last couple of weeks. Another great moment was Emery's birthday party! It went so well and she had so much fun!! Daniel took the two days after her party off and we did so many fun things to celebrate! She's a little confused, though, because it seems like she's had several birthdays. She asked us, "Am I four yet?" :) She also *loves* the trampoline! Watching her jump on it the first time was so precious. She kept saying, "I love my trampoline! It's so much fun!" You pretty much can't ask for more than that! :)

One of my favorite pictures from her party!!
