Pregnancy Journal: Weeks 29-30

Weeks 29-30
No fancy photos this week since I've been out of town....just pics of me in my work bathroom at 30w4d. Haha.

Size of Baby:  acorn squash (29w) and cantaloupe (30w)...a little over 3 pounds and 16" tall!
Gender: It's a Girl
Feeling: Happy/Amazing/Hungry!
Weight: +23.5 pounds total
Maternity Clothes: a mixture of maternity and non-maternity - BUT I really need to buy more maternity items because this belly is expanding quickly!!!
Sleep: I'm still falling asleep pretty easily, but if I wake up in the middle of the night or morning, it takes me a LONG time to get comfortable and fall back asleep.
Symptoms: SWELLING! I wore flats (with no support) one day and my entire legs/ankles/feet were so swollen. It was honestly kind of painful! Luckily, I woke up the next day and my feet were back to normal! I won't be wearing those shoes again.
Stretch Marks: None yet, thanks to my belly creams.
Movement: Lots of kicks/jabs/punches/jumping jacks going on inside.
Highlights: Baby showers and going to Memphis to see my besties!! (Recaps coming soon.)
Worst Moment: Failing my first glucose test.  You have to score under a 130 and my score was 139. Ugh! So I had to go back two days later for the three hour glucose tolerance testing.  Luckily, my sweet hubby came with me so I didn't have to go through all that blood work by myself.  Thankfully, my results came back good! I do NOT have gestational diabetes! Shew!!
Looking forward to: This weekend for my last baby shower!! :)

The home stretch, mama! YAY! xx

Look at that bump! Do you have a body pillow? That was a must for me by this point... something to rest the belly on definitely helped me get more comfy in bed :) And so fun that you've been getting to have your showers and see friends!
