Well today I am 30 Weeks.
This is what I look like.
And yes, I am in my pajamas because let's be honest, at 30 weeks there's just not much else you can still fit into.
And here are just a few of the comments that have been said to me lately:
"Wow, Kelcie! You're looking VERY PREGNANT today!"
"Girl! I don't think you're going to make it to January!"
"I think your due date must be wrong!"
People, can I just tell you that as pregnant women, WE KNOW WE ARE BIG. Being constantly reminded is really. really. unnecessary.
Now that that's off my chest... let's move on with the update, shall we? :)
Size of baby: approximately 15.7 inches long, 3 lbs., and the size of a head of cabbage
Maternity Clothes: I finally went out and bought a cute pair of maternity jeans, which means I have one whole pair. I have one other pair of jeans that aren't maternity but just big, but even they are getting snug. The options in my closet are getting limited.
Gender: A GIRL! But yall knew that.
Movement: A lot! Tyler and I indentified her head over on my right side, and it is the coolest thing to cup it with my hand. And her little feet, arms, and elbows are constantly poking me.
Sleep: So far I'm sleeping better than I expected. I don't wake up that much to go to the bathroom, and somehow I'm still managing to sleep mostly on my stomach (I know, I know!)
What I miss: Looking cute and having energy. I get tired and out of breath really easily. Pretty sure I need to be exercising like 100 times more than I am. (Don't tell my doc!)
Cravings: None. I'm thisclose to believing the whole "craving" thing is a myth and an excuse for women to eat weird and terrible things. Now, I have been craving anything and everything made with pumpkin. But that's just because it's fall yall.
Symptoms: Besides getting out of breath easily, I have a bad back and cramp up really easily. My back often feels like that of a 90-year-old woman. And any out-of-the-ordinary movement makes me cramp. But I can deal.
What I’m looking forward to: Meeting Selah! Now that I am feeling her so much, I feel like I know her. And I can't wait to just hold her.
