How far along? 30 weeks

Total Weight gain/loss: gained 16 pounds

Maternity clothing? YES! Bought three pair of maternity pants from Zara and H&M. Most of my tops are already loose, therefore I did not need to buy any maternity tops. Plus, I love this sweater weather!

Stretch marks? None. Using belly creams every night. Praying I won’t get any!

Sleep? It’s getting more difficult and uncomfortable. Thought of getting a maternity pillow but it’s so massive, I need a California King size bed for that haha.  Currently I sleep with 3 big pillows. That helps a lot! Also, waking up 4-5 times a night to go use the restroom is part of my normal sleep routine now. I guess my body is getting ready to for no sleep very soon haha.

Best moment this week: Meesh and I celebrated our one year over this weekend and it was so relaxing! Got to get away to a beautiful hotel and ate some good stake for dinner.  Baby girl really enjoyed the food and kept on moving and dancing all weekend long.

Worst moment this week: Had to take a 3 hour glucose test because my last test that I took my blood sugar was too high. Got my blood drawn 4 times and one of the time the nurse did a terrible job taking my blood that my whole arm became swollen. I still cannot expend it all the way. But great news, I got an email this morning and lab test results came in and they are fine and there is no need for any change in treatment. Praise the Lord!

Miss anything? Oh and… got my infant Maxi-Cosi car seat in the mail! Love it!

Movement: She moves all the time! Kicks a lot when I’m getting ready for bed at night and when I’m laying down. Feel her hiccups daily. Also, if I eat or drink something cold, she also starts to move. Best feeling ever!

Food cravings: Haven’t had any cravings at all through my whole pregnancy so far.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Loving 3rd trimester, have not been feeling queasy or sick.

Symptoms: If I’m on my feet a lot, my feet get swollen. Also, getting lower back pains a lot. My husband gives me massages every night, that helps me to relax and fall asleep.

Have you started to show yet: OH YES! Definitely look very pregnant!

Labor signs: I felt my first contraction. Stomach tightened and became hard like a rock. And felt some pain in my lower back in that moment. Definitely a new experience!

Belly Button in or out? Belly button in (at least for now).

Exercise?: I try to take walks during my lunch breaks at work. But can’t walk too much, I get cramps already. Also, taking prenatal yoga classes. Feels good to stretch!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Most of the days happy mood (: But definitely have my moody days haha.

Looking forward to: Wear my high wasted skinny jeans again! And no, my maternity pants do not count as high wasted pants haha.
