So yesterday, as Kyle and I were walking around Wal-Mart, waiting on his truck's oil change, I couldn't help but take a picture next to these pumpkins. Baby Roland is looking like she's close to this size now! Yay!
In order to make blogging easier on me, as we continue through these last few weeks, I'm going to copy a friend's idea (hope you don't mind, Megan) and hit more of the highlights of the pregnancy each week. So, here we go...
How far along: 30 Weeks
Baby Size: Approx. 3 pounds and 17 inches long! (and boy is that weight beginning to be noticed as I carry her around!)
Baby Changes: Her hair is getting thicker and her eye lashes longer. She looks very similar to what she will look like when she comes out... just a little thinner. Her body is also learning to regulate it's own temperature now.
Baby Movements: I've felt her have hiccups a couple times now. She also tends to "jump" as she is startled or awakened. I will suddenly feel her hitting 2-3 spots at once, low and high in my tummy. It's like she suddenly jolts and her arms and legs go flying! Her movements are becoming less frequent, as her space is getting cramped, but they are getting stronger.
Food Cravings: Smoothies and bananas
Sleep: Becoming difficult and having really weird, creepy dreams!
Symptoms: Fatigue, neck/shoulder aching, braxton hicks, soreness/tightness in my expanding tummy, indigestion.
Highlight: Baby Girl kicked her Daddy's back for the first time while Mommy was snuggled up next to him in bed!
What I miss: Being able to go from a sitting or lying position to standing without my body aching or groaning!
What I'm looking forward to: Seeing our baby for the first time and being able to comfort her as her mother.
Born and raised in Texas... but moved to Kentucky where I met and married my best friend. We were then blessed with two precious little daughters, ages 3 and 19 months. I love the Lord and I am so thankful that He has given me the blessing of serving my husband and daughters in our home!
