30 Weeks!!!

How far along? 30 Weeks!! 7 1/2 months! Holy heck!! Where has time gone?!

Baby's size? Abigail is the size of a butternut squash! She is between 15-17 inches and weighs between 2.5-4 pounds! We'll get a measurement on Monday!

Weight Gain? Will find out Monday. Don't think it'll be too bad though for this last month. I may delete this question... it's starting to bug me.

Stretch marks? Nope.

Belly button in or out? Out mostly... but sometimes its half in... and sometimes it's all the way in....

Sleep? Well, it's been much better this week, I've finally found a way to get comfortable without tossing and turning all night, though my side of the bed is starting to look like a pillow fort.

Foods I am loving? Anything healthy...

Foods I am hating? It depends on the day, but mostly everything.

Best moment this week? Getting miss Abigail's stroller/carseat and a rug for her room. Oh we also registered at Babies-R-Us. Also on Thursday Skyler said "While we were registering, I just realized how much fun it will be to have a little girl, to buy her everything, and see her in cute little dresses with bows and such." It was great to see him getting more and more excited about the little miss coming.

Movement? Yes! I swear she doesn't stop moving! I love it. Though it's starting to get more uncomfortable, she isn't under my ribs anymore, just more like pushing what we guess to be her butt or back against one side of my stomach making it hurt and very very hard.

Symptoms? Same as always! Though I've been getting a lot of braxton hicks lately.

Gender? GIRL!!!

What I miss? Nothing!

What I will miss? Feeling her move :)

What I'm looking forward to? Baby shower next month! And finishing her room!

Weekly Wisdom: Don't drink too much water before sitting down to watch a really funny movie... you won't want to leave but it'll definitely have to happen... bladder always wins.

Milestone: Being 3/4 of the way there! Also this is the last 2 digit "week left" countdown... next Saturday will mean only 9 weeks!

Emotions: Getting better yet worse with the nesting "not going to have everything finished" feeling. Skyler has been really good this week and even more on top of it then I have at getting stuff for her room. We bought the stroller/carseat Thursday, then we went grocery shopping, and he found a rug he wanted so he bought it! That's so unlike him. He also got the paint for her name and ribbons and such.

Not sure if I can include this with the list of emotions but like I've said before (I'm sure) I've always had this feeling that little miss is going to come early. How early? I'm not sure but it's just this strange feeling I've had. I don't like it, but I'm glad we're at 30 weeks, it's not the best time to have her, but if she were to come anytime after now she has that 90% chance of survival. But anyway, my mom told me my grandma called and said I needed to get my hospital bag ready, that I was going to have her a lot earlier then we think. Now my grandma has been right about everything so far. She said that I needed to relax because there was a little girl waiting for me, but I was too stressed to get pregnant and the month that I didn't feel stressed at all we got pregnant, and its a little girl. Now I know people say stuff all the time but, it's just strange to me...

Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after she's born, she'll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)
