Bump to Baby: 30 Weeks

You are now about 15.7 inches long and just shy of 3 pounds. You are now growing at about a half pound and half an inch a week. You still have some extra room in there but not much now. In the next weeks you will be rotating and moving farther from my rib cage (that doesn't make me sad at all), so you can get ready for your entrance into the world. Your skin is getting smoother and you have even more essential brain tissue developing. You can now grasp a finger which is something you will do plenty of after you come out. Again mostly at this point it's all about putting more weight and developing those lungs.

Let's just be honest here, I'm in my third trimester - I'm just tired. I'm not sleeping great. I'm getting up in the night to go pee. It's hard to get comfortable. Don't let my smallish size fool you, it's just not easy being pregnant. This has been another tough week of food. I have finally found something that I can eat for lunches that doesn't make me queasy so that's definitely an accomplishment but actually I haven't had much of an appetite in general this week. I am definitely eating smaller meals but more times a day, but this week I just haven't been wanting to eat much of anything. I was actually just worn down this week which made me pretty cranky. I just got myself into a funk and just didn't feel great. And you made me worry quite a bit because towards the end of the week you stopped moving a bit. You just weren't as active. I kept reminding myself that you are running around of room and just weren't going to move like you were before but you had me pretty worried. Of course you are just fine in there and are just giving me a hard time. You have been moving around at night after I go to sleep so your father has been feeling for you to help me feel better about you. You are already worrying me.

So I'm into my third trimester now with only ten weeks to go until my due date, although I have never actually made it to my due date. Throughout my first trimester my weight went up and down. I was getting so sick that I wasn't really putting on much weight. Even into my second trimester it took awhile to start putting on weight. My belly started to pop but I wasn't putting on weight. Halfway through my second trimester I finally started putting on some weight but it was slow going up. I just couldn't find things to eat. I was queasy and I still didn't feel great even though I wasn't throwing up. My aversions didn't come until I start eating then I struggled to finish eating whatever it was. It was really frustrating. But my doctor never said anything about my slow weight gain. I just figured she was used me slowly gaining weight and all the ultrasounds I have had had actually showed Emma as measuring ahead. At 30 weeks I have gained about 8 pounds total and it's all baby weight. I have struggled with maternity pants actually because I haven't put on any other weight which had made it hard to keep the pants up actually. But at my last appointment my doctor said that my weight seemed good (like I said I think she's used to the fact that I don't gain a lot and as long as the baby is measuring good then it doesn't matter a ton). So I keep trying to find things to eat and keep my occasional queasiness at bay.
