30 Weeks and Bumpdate

How many weeks:
30 Weeks
10 more weeks to go!

How big is Ellie:
The size of a cucumber

Maternity Clothes:
A sweet friend at church donated her maternity clothes to me.  There were some cute spring/summer tops and even a dress!  I must say that I've been very blessed to receive so many maternity clothes.  I've only spent $130 out of my own pocket on maternity items during this pregnancy.

Weight Gain Alert!
155 lbs
Gained this week:  0 lbs
Total weight gain:  32 lbs

There's less kicking now and more punching and jabbing.  I'm able to feel her head pressed up against my tummy often.

Food Cravings:
Still not craving much.  I'm back on drinking chocolate milk and I've been happy that my reflux is allowing me small amounts of Orange Juice!
I have to admit that I miss Oreos, but there's no way that I could sit down and not eat 15 at once.

Food Aversions:
Smells bother me mostly.  I'm still weary of eating anything too spicy or acidic because of the acid reflux issues.  We ate Bojangles on Sunday and it tasted great but made me super sick the next day because I've limited my fried food so much.  I've never been so healthy!

My Current Eating Pattern:
I snack mostly throughout the day.  I've been drinking water, hot tea, chocolate milk, and orange juice.  I have to remind myself to eat lunch most days.  My tummy is just running out of room so I'm still trying to make my meals count.

FATIGUE, thirsty, swollen feet!, acid reflux (but not as bad this week), indigestion, excitement, emotional, weepiness, lethargic feeling when trying to do housework,

I'm sleeping much better these days.  Acid reflux discomfort no longer wakes me up.  My cough from the Bronchitis is slowly going away, but we're still sleeping with the humidifier on at night.  It doesn't matter how much I limit my fluids before bed, I still have to make potty trips.  I do find myself waking up having to reposition because of bad back pain, but I'm handling it well.

What do I miss:
Being able to shave my legs and paint my toes easily! =)

Best moment of the week:
Finding out that I passed my GTT and receiving Ellie's quilt from Toni!

Worst moment of the week:
I didn't really have one, but I'm sad that Nanny is still in the hospital.

What am I looking forward to:
Putting Ellie's crib together and finishing up decorating her room.

30 Weeks!  We're so close to the finish line now.  And I am also relieved to have passed the GTT!!

"My belly's increasing size is a definite clue that Elliana is getting bigger and bigger every day, weighing in at over 3 lbs now.  Growing daily is her brain, which is starting to look like the real thing with grooves and wrinkles.  Elliana can now also regulate her own body temperature, so she'll start shedding the lanugo."
