30 weeks

How far along?  30 weeks

Total weight gain/measurements: 17 pounds and trying to maintain that.
Maternity clothes: So they dresses didn’t fit, wahn…wahn. I have ordered two more so we will see. I also am looking for something to wear for me maternity photos. I have this idea in my head for flowy, long kind of whimsical looking but we will see what I find. I don’t want to spend too much money on it. I will keep you updated, haha!
Sleep: I am getting lots of sleep. Everyone that I talk to says sleep now because you won’t when he gets here! I found that a pillow between my legs helps but I don’t seem to use it all night. This last week sleeping was good.
Best moment this week: Baby rooms decisions….this week all my free time went into researching and deciding on which cloth diapers to use for the baby. It is such a tough decision because there are SO many to choose from. Also you won’t know how the baby will really fit into them until he actually tries them on. But then you have invested all of this money into something that you aren’t going to use. SO….I guess I just took this decision seriously and did a ton of research and I have come to find out that back to almost basic cloth diapering is the best way to go! My lovely mother cloth diapered my brother and me but back then they used the classic fold and pin cloth diapers. I am using something similar. The cloth diapers I have chosen are from green mountain diapers. The brand is called blueberry capri covers. It is basically a shell for the actual cloth diaper. You basically lay the cloth diaper into the cover and snap it around him. You can also use these little gadgets called snapis that help hold the cloth diaper onto the baby and then cover it all with the cover. These were the most logical and economical for our baby and babies to come. The reviews stated that these covers last forever. Here are some pictures of things I have purchased for his room. Can’t wait to see it all come together!!
I also bought a nursing chair, finally! I couldn’t decided for the longest time and then when I did, I found out that I have a time crunch…if the chair wasn’t in the store then I had to order it and if I had to order it, it would take 12 weeks to get it in! Well, that is not going to work because he will be here in 10 weeks!!! eeeekkkkkk! 🙂
Miss anything? Nope, feeling great!
Movement: Tons of movement! He is like a little kangaroo in there, bouncing off the walls! I should nick name him Roo! 🙂
Food cravings: ugh, cheesecake…I crave it….STILL!!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Symptoms: No symptoms really. My gestational diabetes test is August 3rd so we will see!
Belly button in or out? In but I don’t know how much longer:)
Wedding rings on or off? On, with no problems!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, I can’t believe that I have only 10 weeks left!!
Looking forward to: My 4-D ultrasound is on July 26th, can’t wait to see his cute little face.
Days to go: 70 days to go!
Baby development: Baby is the size of a large cabbage. He weighs around 3 pounds and is 15.7 inches long from head to heel. A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds him, but that volume will shrink as he gets bigger and takes up more room. His eyesight continues to develop, though it is not very keen; even after he is born, he will keep his eyes closed for a good part of the day. When he does open them, he will respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision – which means he can only make out objects a few inches from his face.
