Baby Bump: Week 30

So we all know I'm a blogging slacker.  Did I ever even announce my pregnancy on the blog?  Probably not.  Well guess what!  Baby #2 is due November 30!  But my laziness is no reason to skip this fun weekly bump update, right?  That's what I thought. 

How far along? 30 weeks today

Weight gain/loss: I'm up about 30 pounds.  I don't keep track very well and it's confusing anyway since my pre-pregnancy weight with this baby was 10 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight with Lincoln and I still lost weight at the beginning of the pregnancy.  Let's just say I'm starting to feel kind of like a whale.

Feeling:  Excited that this pregnancy is 75% (or maybe more) done!  Also a little overwhelmed by all of the things I want to finish before baby arrives.  No big projects for baby - just things I am tired of having hanging over my head.

Maternity clothes? Yes, definitely.  Hoping the weather gets even cooler so I can wear some of my favorite maternity clothes from when I was pregnant with Lincoln!

Sleep: Not enough.  And I wake up too frequently between Lincoln fussing and my three-to-five nightly visits to the bathroom.  My whole body has started this great "aching" feeling too, I told Andrew last night it's about time to break out the giant body pillow.

Food cravings:  Lemonade.  Alfredo.  McAlister's Deli (I want this every single day).

Gender: Girl!  Our house is filling up with pink and purple things for miss Adelaide Rose.
Movement?  She's usually wild, but has been a little quieter this week.  She likes to stick her hand/foot in my belly button (which has been "out" since about week 10) - I think she likes the tiny little cavity of extra space.

What I miss? Caesar Salad.  I am planning to pick one up via takeout on my way home from delivering her.  It's that bad.

Best moment this week: Touring a birth center and making the decision to deliver there instead of at the hospital.  It's going to be a somewhat further drive, but I felt so relaxed and peaceful at the center - it is so much more suited to the natural birth experience I am striving for this time around.

What I'm looking forward to:  A nice, calm weekend with hubby at home.  Maybe some yummy food (that we don't have to cook) since I have lots of birthday offers in my email inbox?

Next Appointment: Tuesday, September 25 (my birthday).  I have an hour-long appointment to meet one of the midwives at the birth center and get everything switched over to their care.  Excited!
