30 Weeks!

 How far along?: 30 weeks (3/4 of the way there!)
Total Weight Gain: about 20
Maternity clothes? Yes :)
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: OK
Best moment this week: Having my little sisters rub and kiss my belly all week was pretty sweet.
Movement: O, yes.
Cravings: Had to have oatmeal chocolate chip cookies yesterday... but that happened before pregnancy, too, so I don't think it counts. ;)
Gender Predictions: This week I'll say girl... or boy...
Labor Signs: no
Belly Button in or out? out, out, out! It's a miracle!
What I miss: sleeping on my back, most definitely.
What I am looking forward to: Decorating the nursery this month, and a baby shower in just two weeks!
Weekly WisdomHeartburn is nasty stuff. However, avoiding food completely does not solve the problem, it only creates a new one. There's no wisdom in that... Just thought I'd let y'all know what's been new with me this week! ;) On the positive side, I've heard and read that heartburn can actually increase the hair on your baby's head, in which case I cautiously say, "Bring it on!"
Milestones: We hit the 30s! Woot!


  1. this is so exciting! and i love what you did with the picture!

  2. papaya enzymes are supposed to be really good for heartburn!

  3. Thanks Hannah! I'm getting ready to order some more prenatal vitamins, I think I'll throw those in my cart, too! :)

  4. You look beautiful! We pray for you almost every morning during Bible time. :)
