30 weeks {babybrink#2}


Size of baby: a large cabbage. Keep growing, baby boy! (But it's okay if you come out on the smaller side like your sister. I don't mind giving birth to 7 pound babies, or a little less, HA!)

Movement: the kind of movement that moves my whole belly around :) This kid is all about the action moves, which will absolutely be the best news to Mia as he grows. She's all into swords and pretend fighting (I mean, seriousssssssssly) so having an active little brother is exactly what she'll need!

Cravings: Bruges waffles and frites... which you can only get in northern Utah, ha! Other than that, no specific cravings. Just lots of trigger cravings (dang you, social media!!)

Miss anything: sleep!! Oh man, the third trimester sleep regression has hit and it's the worst! I don't fall into a good sleep until just before it's time to get up. And poor Eric is suffering from my tossing and turning as well, ugh! It's not even that I'm uncomfortable this time around, I think it's just what happens in the third trimester... the worst kind of prep for having a newborn, ha!

Random: I am kind of worried that baby boy is not in position (head down). In fact, I still think he's horizontal in there and it's not really workin' for me, ha! It feels like he's trying to come out my sides when he moves around and it's actually quite uncomfortable. I don't know how to explain it... but it feels so different than with Mia. I always had the sorest ribs (he still get me in the ribs, don't get me wrong) as if she was always head down. But maybe this is totally normal and there is still plenty of time before he needs to be in position?

Best moment of the week: one night last week as I was falling asleep, Eric had his hand on my belly and baby boy was moving around like crazy. I couldn't help but smile and soak in the moment as Eric and I were able to soak in those sweet reminders of another little miracle babe that is about to change our world, for the better! These little moments are what life is all about!

I'm sorry youve been having trouble sleeping girl! I can imagine that's gotta be tough--I'm never a happy camper when I dont get enough.
Love that you guys had the special moment with baby boy moving around, and Eric. Treasure those :) Soon it will be a wiggly little boy in your arms!!

You look so amazing in that dress, lady!!! How sweet you had a moment with just the three of you :)!

30 weeks?! Getting closer!
You look absolutely fabulous.
I totally feel you on the sleep. I can't remember the last time I had a night where I didn't toss, turn, or get up at least 3 times to pee. Oy. All just prep for the little one's arrival. :)

You are the cutest pregnant lady ever! Hoping you start sleeping better! HUGS!

I have never had first trimester insomnia until this pregnancy (13 weeks and it seems to be going away!!) I'm so scared I'll get it again during third trimester! I just wanna sleeeeeeep!!!

Such a precious bump! And I am loving that dress.

I think every time I see a weekly post I go " how is she that far along already?!" You look great! Can't wait to meet the little guy!

Brittany said...

You look gorgeous as always! So happy and beaming! I really love that dress and can't believe how close you're getting! AH!!

Lexie Loo, Lily, Liam, and Dylan Too! said...

You look beautiful!

Krista said...

Try calcium. That really helps me sleep, especially when baby is taking it all from you. Good luck with your last 10 weeks, and the bigger the baby, the better (within reason, of course. My sil had a 12 lb-er!).

There was a time that I thought Finn was traverse... But turns out he was just a big baby! Hope your boy goods in a good position closer to delivery though!

Erin LFF said...

You look amazing- as always!!! :) Hope third trimester can somehow be nice to you and let you get a little sleep!!! ;) I am so excited to see that cute face!

Ashley Brickner said...

So close! And you are right, those moments are the best!!!!

Sarah said...

headed towards the single digit weeks! Woo hoo! Hopefully they'll fly by and you can meet baby boy.

Evelina said...

Hopefully he gets in a more comfortable position soon! But at 30 weeks does a comfortable position even exist? lol

Mandie said...

I cannot believe that you're thirty weeks already! Holy crap! Where has the time gone?!

Caleb and Levi weren't in the right position until a couple of days before I went into labour! These boys just like to make us worry a little, ha! I'm sure he will move into position soon!
