30 Weeks Pregnant | Baby #3


HOW FAR ALONG 
30 Weeks + 6 Days

DUE DATE
Monday 23rd April 2018

GENDER
Definitely a Boy! 

HOW’S BABY DOING
Baby is growing closer to 17 inches, the size of a cantaloupe and probably weighs around 3.5lbs. By this stage most babies will be starting to turn to the position ready for birth - head down. The lanugo that has been keeping baby warm will be starting to fall off this week as baby starts putting on enough fat to keep themselves warm. The eyes are in place but are still developing, at around week 34 the vision will probably be as strong as it will be at birth.

WEIGHT CHANGE
I seem to have gained a few pounds all of a sudden, which is to be expected as baby is just filling out now, so I don't think I am going to get back on the scales until nearer my due date now.

SYMPTOMS
Acid reflux has been pretty awful this week, I get it most nights as soon as I lay down to go to sleep. My SPD has been bad which surprised me as Isla has been off school this past week so Ive not had to do the school runs, I also now have sciatica on my right side! I'm shocked I've only just got it so far in this pregnancy but my is it very painful. I also have some new stretch marks on my lower sides (hips). 

SLEEP
Sleep has been pretty rubbish this week, it doesn't help that Archie has been having nightmares so coming into our bed some nights. 

CRAVINGS
Ive been craving chocolate milkshakes again. I will happily down a pint of chocolate nesquik every night! 

HOW I’M FEELING
Ive been feeling quite overwhelmed this week, we still haven't really bought much for baby - I know we still have plenty of time but this is the most unorganised out of all my pregnancies I've been. I am starting to get the nesting feeling and have a list of chores that need doing before D day! 

MISS ANYTHING
I miss my old energy, I feel exhausted most of the time and just cant wait to have my body back, I miss being able to walk without being in pain! 

FAVOURITE RECENT OUTFIT
Ive lived in my leggings and long vests this week, hair up in a pony tail and no make up!

BEST MOMENT THIS WEEK
We had 2 great moments this week, we got to see our baby boy at our 4D scan which was amazing, its really helped me to bond and connect with him even more, he's just like his Daddy and big Brother! He looked like he already had chubby cheeks and was pulling some funny faces, his older Sister and Brother thought it was so funny being able to see him, they loved it. We also received our beautiful pushchair this week, we have gone for the Mamas & Papas Ocarro and I absolutely love it. 



LOOKING FORWARD TO
I'm looking forward to seeing my midwife next week as we are going to start discussing the birth. 

Im linking up this week with Lets Talk Mommy with the Bumps & Babies linky.
