30 Week Survey

How far along? 30 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: 0.5 lbs. 29 lbs. total
How big is baby? Supposed to be around the size of a head of cabbage: about 3 lbs, and 15.7 inches long.
Maternity clothes? Mostly. They are SO much more comfy.
Sleep: It actually hasn't been too bad this week, and I typically only wake up once to use the bathroom, but that is only if I make sure that I get up one last time before I actually fall asleep. Still waking up on my back occasionally.
Best moment this week: Nataleigh's party this past weekend, getting to see everyone, and finally getting my hair done last night!
Movement: All the time. He has really been kicking me in the bladder on and off and man does it ever hurt!!
Food cravings: I have been enjoying chocolate this week more than usual...
Gender: Little man
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out? I would say it is pretty flat at this point, but not poking out yet.
Stretchmarks? Just like a tiny one on my boob. None at all my stomach! I am using Organic Palmer's Cocoa Butter cream in the morning and this "Beautiful Belly Balm" at night that I got at our local health food store.
How are you feeling? I have felt pretty tired lately, all throughout the day.
What I am looking forward to: Seeing family tonight. Getting some stuff done this weekend.
What I miss: Not being able to sleep on my back and stomach.
Weekly Wisdom: Stay active.
Milestones: Reaching the 3/4 point in this pregnancy. OH. my. goodness. And the fact that he could really be here in like 6 weeks (hopefully not but you never know) is pretty crazy. I just do not even feel remotely ready yet!!

How your baby's growing:

Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after she's born, she'll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

I feel like there was a definite growth spurt since last week.


And now for a fun comparison:
