Weight Gain: Baby is growing great and starting to put on some adorable chunky baby fat.
Maternity Clothes: Definitely.
Sleep: Waking up more often to use the bathroom and to turn from one side to the other. Also, a certain little boy likes to come into our bed several times a night. All of this is making me a very tired mommy during the daytime. Brody and I have been resting a lot during the day.
Best Moment of this week: We went for our 30 week check up and a separate non-medical 3D/4D ultrasound yesterday so we loved watching Baby Mattox showing off. He was so active although he acted very sleepy. He was rubbing his eyes with his little fists and yawning a lot. He and Brody must be on the same nap schedule in the afternoons after eating lunch because Brody fell asleep during the 30 minute ultrasound session. Getting these special ultrasounds is a very special tradition for us, and I love the pictures of all of my little ones during this special time.
Movement: He's getting more active, and he turned head down this week which gave mommy some major discomfort.
Food cravings: Now that the holidays are over, I am hoping to get back on a healthier eating track.
Food Aversions: Nothing. I seem to like it all although everything gives me some heartburn or reflux. Nothing some milk or a Zantac can't handle though.
What I miss: I think what I miss most is the peace of mind that comes with pregnancies when you have never suffered a loss. Most people really take that for granted.
Gender: Another adorable and quite spunky baby boy. Should be lots of fun!
Symptoms: Still mostly hunger, tiredness, and some light heartburn/reflux.
What I'm looking forward to: Meeting Mattox in 8 more weeks, finding our new home and getting settled, finishing the blanket I am crocheting for you in time for your arrival, and just holding our sweet little baby in our arms and hearing those first cries!
And now for the adorable 30 week ultrasound pictures:
|Sweet little face|
|Cute little profile and ear. He was "snuggling" against his placenta which is still in the front and lower although high enough to be away from the cervix thank goodness.|
|Yep, I am in love with that face already!|
|All balled up. He would stretch out and then ball up again.|
|He tried to turn over and hide and gave us the "cold shoulder." Obviously, he wanted to be left alone.|
|Sweet little body.|
|Rubbing his sleepy little eyes with his fist.|
|I just love these babies!|
