30 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2

24 January 2014

Sorry this is so late, I was supposed to put it up yesterday but Emilia is very sick so I've been spending all my time looking after her. Poor thing :( 

How far along? 30 weeks 4 days
Total weight gain/measurements: 27lbs! 
Maternity clothes: My jumper is not maternity (Heatons, a few years ago) but my leggings and tank top are by Kate Thomas Maternity and I love them. They are sooo comfortable! Last pregnancy I was all about skinny jeans & maxi dresses (summer pregnancy) but this time it's leggings all the way! 
Stretch marks? Still no new ones.
Sleep: Getting more & more uncomfortable, the bigger I get the harder it is to get a good night's sleep!
Best moment this week: Seeing the baby on the ultrasound at our doctor's appointment :)  
Miss anything? I definitely miss feeling "normal", especially right now at this last stage of the pregnancy. I think it's mainly because running around and picking up after a toddler is tough & now that Emilia is sick it's even harder...so I wish I had my full energy, could bend over easily, that kind of thing! But I know it it will all be worth it in the end! 
Movement: Loads. 
Food cravings: Grapes! And ham & cheese sandwiches.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not right now, Jonathan & I both caught a cough/slight cold but it's nothing major.
Gender: BOY!
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: My blood pressure is still low, the heartburn is back in full swing (boo!) and I found a haemorrhoid!!! :( I was lucky enough not to get any last time and I actually started crying when I found out! Fortunately it only hurt for a day or so before clearing up on its own but...yeah, I don't want to experience that again! On the plus side, I haven't shaved my legs in months and they are silky smooth & hair free! Not all things about pregnancy are bad ;)    
Belly button in or out? Out!
Wedding rings on or off? On - I've been really lucky so far in both pregnancies to never have any swelling.
Happy or moody most of the time? A bit of both!
Looking forward to: Emilia's new bed coming and decorating the baby's nursery!
