30 weeks {a pregnancy update}


How Far Along: 30 weeks, 2 days
Size of baby: 18 inches, 3.2 pounds- about the size of a head of lettuce
Total Weight Gain/Loss: (as of 3/20/13) 24 pounds. Can yall believe I only gained 1 pound in two weeks??? I was really happy with that, especially considering those two weeks were spent not eating well.
 Maternity Clothes: All maternity clothes, except my one black pair of sweatpants (that I wear way too much).
Gender: BOY! Tyler Paul.
Movement: Yes. He is a mover and a shaker. He loves to stretch now too, and will push DOWN on my bladder, and have a foot near my ribs. He's also laying diagonally, so I'm sure the shape of my belly looks WHACK when he's doing this.
Sleep: It's been OK. I didn't sleep that well at Blissdom this past weekend. I think that was more because of the adrenaline of being there combined with sleeping on a hotel mattress.
Symptoms: Lots of aches. Along with a few other things that will remain unmentioned.
What I miss: This may sound vain, but I miss being skinny. This is stated in the weirdest sort of way, because I do LOVE being pregnant. I will miss all of the little kicks and flips of having a baby inside of me; pregnancy is truly an amazing gift. It's just that the extra weight and shape make it more hard to walk everywhere, and to somewhat function normally. I was reminded of this every time I had to walk the entire distance of the Gaylord Texan this past weekend at Blissdom.
Cravings: Sweets, Mexican food. Pretty much anything that's bad for me, I crave. So convenient.
Food Aversions: none, praise Jesus!
Best Moment this week:  I loved, loved, loved Blissdom. I'll be honest, I was a bit nervous going. I wasn't sure what to expect, and worried that I was spending money on something I would hate. But I just loved it. I can't wait to use what I learned and apply it to the blog, and I LOVED getting to me some of my "internet friends". 
What I am looking forward to: As much as I loved my trip to Blissdom, I am glad to be back home with my boys. My heart is my family, and everyone knows it's hard to be apart from your heart for long. So I'm looking forward to spending time with my babies this week, and gearing up for Easter Sunday, one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. If you're looking for some Easter activities to do with your kids that are Christ-centered, be sure to check out my Easter ideas post if you haven't already.
