How Far Along: 30 Weeks - Ten weeks to go!
Size of the Baby: Baby girl is about 18 inches long and three pounds
Stretch marks: Not yet!! (fingers crossed)
Weight gain: 25 pounds so far
Sleep: It's getting slightly uncomfortable around these parts folks. I can't even count how many times I go back and forth between my left side and my right side. I think I'm starting to keep Brandon up too :-/ Not to mention that I have to pee at least twice each night.
Best Moment of the Week: I FINISHED MY PORTFOLIO! That's right, I have officially completed my Master's program. Hallelujah!
Movement: Oh, yes. A couple of weeks ago, the doctor had me start my "kick counts", which basically means that I am supposed to feel her move 10 times within an hour. It usually takes about ten minutes. She's a wiggle worm in the evenings - I think it's because her dad is home and she likes to play with him :-)
Food Cravings: Still no cravings - but my stomach sure is running out of room. After I eat a big meal, it physically hurts. I have to remember to slow it down, and eat half the amount. (Ha, yeah right).
Belly Button in or out: The belly button is standing its grounds, and remaining in.
Labor Signs: No
Wedding ring on or off: On, but question for you "been there done that moms". Should I take it off? My hands are swollen but with enough lube I can get the ring off if I want. The thing is, I don't mind if it gets tight - can I just leave it on? Or have any of you experienced a huge amount of swelling at the end that would cause it to cut off circulation?
What I miss: Being able to sit at my desk at work for eight hours comfortably. My back and hips starts to ache by noon.
What I am looking forward to: My baby shower is next weekend!
Nursery: We are almost done!! We just got the fabric we ordered to cover our glider, and we're still on the look out for a bookshelf, but the whole thing should be ready for reveal by my shower.
Emotions: Feeling very happy :-) But very spacy...I seriously feel like I'm losing brain cells daily. It's a good thing I finished school when I did.
