How far along: 30 weeks! 10 more to go!
Size of Baby: Butternut Squash (About 17 inches and 3.1 lbs)
Gender: all things blue
Best moment this week: Most definitely Thanksgiving and our baby shower! We were totally spoiled by friends and family so now we have most of what we need. Just a few more things left to pick up and get organized!
Weight gain: I refuse to look after all the food I stuffed into my pregnant face this past week...
Maternity clothes: Mostly maternity with a few extra big sweaters thrown in
Belly button in or out: In and almost flat
Wedding Rings on or off: Off most of the time :(
Sleep: Great aside from the 2-3 pee breaks each night. Love having my bump nest to support the belly
Miss anything: Definitely missed wine with my Thanksgiving dinner this year
Movement: Lots of shifting and kicking going on. The babe is still (very obviously) transverse so I get a lot of kicks on my hip bones and the bump looks super crazy when he stretches in both directions.
Cravings: Any type of food, so hungry!
Symptoms: Getting tired much more easily these days. My back and feet get sore more often and I feel like I'm peeing constantly, but overall I feel great.
Labor Signs: None so far, not even a BH contraction. I know I have time for him to change position, but I'm really hoping he moves head down soon so I can stop stressing!
Nursery: We finally have our rocker! I was nervous about the grey rocker with grey walls but I think with a white throw and a little pillow it will break it up a bit.
Now we need an ottoman. What do y'all think? White morrocan pouf or something with a pattern like this or this?
We ended up going with the Charleston Rocker from Pottery Barn Kids (pretty appropriate name, right?!) in the "Dove Gray" Washed Grainsack fabric. The fabric and color was kind of by default... it turns out if you purchase this or one other fabric/chair combination and have it shipped to the store, you can save on shipping and surcharge costs ($140!). Plus we got 20% off with the Friends and Family sale, so it made it kind of a no brainer. It's so comfortable, I absolutely love it!
Looking forward to: Our ultrasound tomorrow and putting up Rowan's Christmas stocking! I also cannot wait to start baby laundry with all the cute onesies and sleepers we got this past weekend... we're getting so close!
