What's Baby Up To?
- Her skin is getting smoother.
- Her brain is getting wrinklier, to make way for all that essential brain tissue.
- Her more developed brain is now able to regulate her body temperature better, so she will start to shed her coating of peach fuzz. :)
- She's now strong enough to grasp a finger!
Symptoms: Still a little heartburn and my Braxton Hicks contractions seem to be a little more frequent and a tad stronger - but still nothing painful. Mainly I'm just in awe of this growing belly that is beginning to get in the way. I will often find stains on the belly part of my shirts, since it is a catch-all these days. Bending over is getting a little trickier and every day I pray that my belly button won't pop out. Oh the joy of pregnancy! ;)
Cravings: Nothing really specific, pretty much just anything anyone mentions....like today a random kid in the hallway at school said, "macaroni" and it made me want some! :) Mmmm macaroni...
Weight Gain: About 15-16 lbs total.
30 Week Bump Pic:
We've had such crazy weather in Dallas this past week and a half. We might even have another snow day tomorrow and Spring Break is next week! Craziness! I'm ready for the weather to cooperate so this mama can go for a walk outside. Tired of being cooped up inside and of having to re-wear my same winter maternity outfits all the time. Although, I must say my accessorizing game has really been on point. A lack of options really forces you to be creative! ;)
We have two very exciting things coming up in the next few days!! Friday is our 30 week doctor's appointment and sonogram! Yayyyy! We haven't seen Baby Girl since week 17 and we are anxious to see how much she has grown!
Then on Sunday, I am having my first Baby Shower in Houston hosted by my dear friend Lauren and her sweet mother Adrienne!
Only 10 more weeks to go! XOXO!
