Bumpdate Week 31

30 Weeks 3 Days

How far along?  30 weeks! I know I say this every week, but the pregnancy has gone by so fast. It's incredible to me that our little bunny will be here in less than 10 weeks. (Each bumpdate reviews the week previous)

Total weight gain: At my last Dr appointment, I had gained 10.5 lbs and I think I'm at least 12 now, I have a Dr appointment next Friday so I'll know the true number soon. My belly has been growing each day...along with my face.

Stretch marks?: Besides Stretch Mark Gate (read about it here in Week 28) I haven't had any more pop up and the few I have on the underside of my chest have not grown or gotten worse. I'm still using the  Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter every day and use my Skincare Ormedic Balancing Anti Oxidant Serum on the stretch marks. I figured if it worked miracles on my under eye area it may work miracles for stretch marks too.

Only 10 weeks left! I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by!

Maternity clothes: I'm beginning to feel like I wear the same things all the time. My belly has grown so much the last two weeks that shirts I was wearing last month are too tight or too short to wear now. At this point in the pregnancy, I don't want to buy anything more unless it's for breastfeeding i.e. nursing bras, tanks, and pjs.

I'm still wearing my Old Navy Maternity Smooth-Panel Rockstar Jeggings  (I bought two pairs) and my Kiki La'Rue Jeggings (which aren't maternity, but fit below my belly).  I love these pants, they're all I wear at this point in the game.

Belly Button in or out?: Flat! It has taken on a new look all its own and will be popping out any day I think. The top ridge is still out and I've noticed more is beginning to join it.

Sleep: Oh man, I have been so hot these past two weeks! We sleep with the window open, the fan cranked up (we don't want to put the AC on just yet), I'm sleeping in the buff or in minimal pjs and I still wake up every night because I'm hot and uncomfortable. I'm also waking up around 2-3AM to use the restroom and get something to drink. My mouth is so dry in the morning, I pound a glass of juice/water before I get in the shower, and still have another glass with my breakfast. Also, any preggers or mommies out there who noticed that their baby preferred for them to sleep on one side over another. I typically sleep on my right side and when I switch to my left side it feels like the baby is trying to push me back over. It feels like she extends both her arms and legs and that she's pushing/drawing on my left side of my belly. Is that weird? Have you experienced anything like this? I've also noticed that my right hip will have some pain from sleeping on it for so long.

Here I am in all my 30 week glory! 

Best moment this week: Swimming! My doctor said that swimming is great for pregnant women because it takes stress off your joints and back and the baby enjoys it because they're bouyant. My family heated their pool for Easter and I couldn't wait to jump in!

Worst moment this week: Nothing bad this week, besides being so hot during the night. Oh and on Tuesday I cried because I was feeling so overwhelmed and my hormones wouldn't let me stop once I started. Good news? My new elf liner lasted right through it perfectly. A review will be coming soon!

Have you told family and friends: Yes!

Miss Anything? Sleeping comfortably.

Movement: So much! She moves all day long and I love watching my belly move as she turns and stretches. Most of my family all got to see and feel her on Easter, it was awesome sharing it with them.

Food cravings: Chicken nuggets and Sprite.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing. 

Have you started to show yet: You mean you can't tell in the bikini pic above? Bless your heart.

Gender: Team pink!

The elephant I ordered from Luna and Bean for Baby E came in! 
Her name is embroidered on the ear in pink, but I covered it with the tag 
since we're keeping it a secret on social media until she's here! 

Symptoms: So I've had the hiccups for months now, but forget to include it on my posts. I have hiccups often normally, but while pregnant I have them every single day. Which is super annoying since my phone revolves around being on the phone all day. However, I guess I'd rather have hiccups than gas from the other end.

Happy or Moody most of the time:
Happy, happy, happy!

What I'm reading: Nothing, this past week and future week coming up has been insane. We've had holidays, sickness, and tomorrow my sister in law is getting married! No time for reading!

Looking forward to: The wedding tomorrow and putting the nursery together. Matthew put the body of the dresser together and this upcoming week I'm going to add contact paper to the bottom of the drawers so we can put it together completely. I'm also on the hunt for a few frames and a large mirror.

Thank you everyone for all your comments on my posts, Facebook, InstaGram, and emails. Your sweet words mean so much to me and I can't tell you how much I appreciate each of them!
