thirty weeks.

How Far Along? 30 Weeks, Wow! 10 weeks until D-day. 7 weeks until Full-term!
Total Weight Gain: Appointment next week…
Maternity Clothes? Not yet.
Stretch Marks? No
Sleep: Not great, not terrible. Lots of tossing and turning and I am having a hard time shutting my mind off! There is just so much on my mind!
Best Moment of the Week: We had a great Easter at the Anderson’s! I love Easter it is such a great reminder of the Savior’s sacrifice, His life and His ministry. We are feeling very blessed!
Miss Anything? Just a really runny egg for breakfast…that sounds so good!
Movement: Oh yes! He loves to roll and flip around. It is the best to sit and watch with Brady J
Food Cravings: Scrambled eggs (since I can’t have one over-easy) jelly beans, and veggie sandwiches!
Anything making you queasy or sick? No, feeling good!
Gender: Boy!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Pregnancy hair is awesome, hormonal acne not so much!
Belly Button In or Out? Out, out and sticking even farther out.
Wedding Rings On or Off? On
Happy or Moody Most of The Time:  Happy at home, a little miserable at work. It is getting really hard to work an office job and sit for that long. My back is killing by the end of the day and then I can barely think straight!
Looking Forward To: Not too much going on this week and that is what I am looking forward to! It will be great to just “hang out”

How Far Along? 29 Weeks
Total Weight Gain: 13+ pounds
Maternity Clothes? No, but I did pick up two more t-shirts from H&M…they fit over the belly so well!
Stretch Marks? No
Sleep: Vacation this weekend made sleep up and down. I can’t complain it wasn’t too bad but Utah air made me really congested at night.
Best Moment of the Week: I had the best time shopping for baby with Brady. He is one spoiled little guy but it was so worth it because I am feeling a lot more on top of things.
Miss Anything? Sleep and Deli Sandwiches (I told Brady that a sub is all I want after delivery!)
Movement: It was different this week and I think it was all the walking and activities we did in Utah. Now that we are back he is kicking like crazy and I missed it!
Food Cravings: Jelly beans, Nutella/chocolate and veggie subs
Anything making you queasy or sick? No
Gender: Still Boy!
Labor Signs: Nope
Symptoms: I have had some pretty good cramps in my legs lately and the rib pain takes my breath away-it gets really uncomfortable.
Belly Button In or Out? Out and poking through almost everything I have!
Wedding Rings On or Off? On
Happy or Moody Most of The Time: Happy! This last weekend was one of the best times I have ever had. It was really hard to come back to the work grind but I am grateful for all the time off
Looking Forward To: This weekend we are headed to Burley for Easter-one of my favorite holidays!

twenty-eight weeks.

How Far Along? 28 weeks! Wow I can’t believe we are in the third trimester. It is flying!
Total Weight Gain: 13 pounds at our appointment today, and the belly is measuring exactly at 28 weeks! 
Maternity Clothes? No, but I have NOTHING to wear.
Stretch Marks? No
Sleep: I don’t like this question. Sleep? What is that? I just toss and turn from hip to hip and I am pretty sure I have restless leg syndrome. I get the worst creepy/crawly feeling in my legs and have to get up.
Best Moment of the Week: Our appointment was great this week. The doctor told us a little more about what the heart specialist had sent back from a few weeks ago and confirmed that baby is super healthy and they aren't really concerned anymore about his calcium deposits…phew! I love our doctor, she has been so great, she talked to us a ton and when she listened to baby’s heartbeat he started going crazy hearing it! It made us all laugh! Oh and I passed my glucose test, I didn’t think it was all that bad. Super sweet…like the Kool Aid my Dad loves to drink!
Miss Anything? Just sleep…
Movement: I love it! He is so active throughout the day, when he is hungry, at night, and in the morning. I just can’t wait to meet him!
Food Cravings: Chocolate/Nutella, applesauce, veggie sandwiches have started to sound really good again!
Anything making you queasy or sick? No!
Gender: boy!
Labor Signs: No…but it is crazy to think in a few weeks I might have an answer to this question.
Symptoms: Giant belly, Giant kicks, Giant appetite.
Belly Button In or Out? Very much out. I can barely hide that thing under clothes now!
Wedding Rings On or Off? On
Happy or Moody Most of The Time: Happy except for when I am so tired…then I might be a teeny bit moody 

Looking Forward To: We are taking our “babymooon” in Salt Lake this weekend! I am very excited and hope to find some good baby deals while were down there and love the idea of just being with Brady and enjoying a last trip with just the two of us!

Miss Anything? I could really take an over easy egg.
Movement: Oh yes, still loving it
