30 weeks...the final countdown!!!

How far along? 30 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Total, I think it's somewhere around 25lbs. sheesh...

Maternity clothes? I really want a new pair of maternity jeans, but I can't justify spending $40 on something I'm only gonna wear for another 7-10 weeks.

Stretch marks? Got 'em

Sleep: It hasn't been so great lately. I'm gonna start trying Tylenol pm...hopefully that will help.

Best moment this week: There were lots...Laney's birthday, school starting today, getting the living room and main hall painted, and my dr. appt. yesterday. His heartrate was in the 150's and when she measured my belly, she felt around to see if she could figure out what position he was in and she's pretty sure he's head down! Now he just needs to stay that way!

Movement: It's been out of control. I literally try to rock back and forth in bed, hoping that maybe it will rock him to sleep. It doesn't work. That would be one of the reasons I'm not getting that much sleep. But I really can't complain...I love feeling him wiggling around in there! ;)

Food cravings: Chocolate pudding...which just started today.

Gender: I'm assuming he's still a boy...should I just keep this answer every week? I'm pretty sure he won't morph into a girl! ;)

Labor Signs: I had alot of braxton hicks contractions after we painted on Saturday. I layed down and they went away. I always seem to feel alot of pressure after I walk around for a long time.

Belly button in or out? Flat

What I miss: Nothing

What I am looking forward to: Painting his room in the next week or two!

Weekly wisdom: ??

Milestones: I got my rhogam shot yesterday at my appt. It's just one more step closer to meeting him!

Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and he weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds him, but that volume will decrease as he gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. His eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after he's born, he'll keep his eyes closed for a good part of the day. When he does open them, he'll 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. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)
