30 Weeks

 Week 30 Complete
How far along? 30 Weeks 2 Day, 3/4ths of the way done my friends!
Baby is the size of: A cantaloupe weighing 3.5 lbs and 17 inches long!
What did the baby develop: His lanugo (fur) is falling off because he is gaining fat to keep him warm. He will be adding a pound a week from now on! His eyes are still developing. They are in the correct place, but his vision is still poor. He should start moving into birthing position (head down).
Gender: Sweet baby boy, Adler James
How many: 1 little squishy
Showing a bump: Yep. It is here to stay, although I still hid it with my sweatshirt last weekend. :)
Maternity clothes: 75%, I still have some pants and skirts I can wear for work.
Stretch marks: Nope!
Sleep: Mostly great. Last night those restless legs kicked in though!
Movement: I can now feel him move at the same time on both sides of my stomach. A first since normally I only feel him in the right lower portion of my stomach. Non stop during the day. Not so much at night yet though.
Best moment this week: Listening to his actual heart beat through the side of my stomach, where as normally we have heard it through the amniotic fluid. Such a beautiful thing! And he is already head down! Yay! Stay that way sweet boy!
Miss anything: We finished the basement 90% last week! Pictures to come. And then we went camping. It was so much fun to spend a week with Thomas and I can't wait for the month off that we get together when Adler joins our family!!
Medical Help:  Daily Vitamins - Prenatal, fish oil, Vitamin D, Probiotic, Calcium/Magnesium, and electrolyte supplement
Emotionally Feeling: Happy the basement is done! Excited to meet him. Thankful with each week that gets me closer to him being safe!
Belly button in or out: In, but my belly button is starting to slightly bulge on one side.
Food cravings: Not this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Strong perfume/cologne.
Symptoms/Side effects: My eye site has definitely changed a little bit. And my ability to smell crazy things is back. So if I ask you not to put perfume or cologne on when you come visit me, that is why. And I have heard that it stays around after birth. So I might just make it a rule that people are not allowed to wear strong scents when visiting Adler the first few months. Whew it is strong! And I now have just random aches and pains in my entire midsection. I still don't feel that big, but my whole midsection is rearranged and apparently not loving it!
Wedding ring off or on: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: My first baby shower in Southern California this weekend. We are so blessed to be able to celebrate this little guy with all of you!
Things they don't tell you about pregnancy: The random aches and pains that come later on. I thought I would always know why something hurt, but I can't quite figure out some of these. Other then the fact that my guts are all squished out of place. :)
I cannot believe I am 30 weeks!
Our staycation included projects like this that have been in my head way too long, but finally came true!
And then we ended the week camping. It was slightly harder to get out of the tent, but I still could!
Question of the week!
Tell me about your first days home from the hospital. What were the things that no one told you? The way that you had no idea you would love this baby? Or how it was hard to connect right away? How your body healed after the birthing part? How you anticipated breastfeeding would be and was or wasn't?
